I am confused in buying SX220 and SX40. I am getting more than 20% discounts on dealaboo.com in both the Canon cameras. I am a newspaper journalist and need a clear results for the front page images. any recommendations should be highly appreciated.
Moving to a FF Camera, you will want to look at the 85mm f1.8 to to use in place of your 50mm; it will provide a similar field of view that the 50mm did on your Crop Body. More here: http://www.the-digital-picture.com/Reviews/Canon-EF-85mm-f-1.8-USM-Lens-Review.aspx
On the FF, your 50mm should be providing about the same field of view as the 35mm did on your Crop Body.
I completely disagree with putting a 50/1.4 on a camera and using it exclusively. Whatever you do, don't do that.
All lenses have inconsistent autofocus, and the lower cost ones are the worst.
Extreme care is needed to make sure that movement or vibration is not affecting the results, just someone walking on a wooden house floor will cause noticible AF issues.
Its a good idea to take several shots when you can, about one in 3 or 5 can be out enough to where its really bad.
The 50 f/1.4 is a pretty crappy lens. The USM motor and focusing ring aren't made very well. Invest in some L lenses and don't look back.
