I am weighing up the pros and cons of upgrading my bodies, namely a 40D to a T3i, whilst I can still recover some monetary value from the 40D
Leaving aside what I would like, but cannot afford............. Never has a 5Diii and a bag of Canon L Primes disappeared so fast!
I am looking for a body which will give me larger Raw Files with without a huge increase in noise. (I pull them with DXO in a Mac). In addition better low light sensitivity would be a plus.
Although I realize that with the T3i I will lose ergonomically (losing rear control dial) and the interchangeable screen (I use the Grid screen to aid composition) by the numbers it looks as if the T3i has a newer generation imager and image processor and also does not suffer from the noise issues of the 50D.
Whilst I would love the rugged construction that the 40D has, being brutally honest, only my ego can justify this build quality.
Does anyone have any opinions based on using the T3i for stills not Video (real world results as opposed to conjecture)
