| p.5 #5 · Best ever value for money Canon DSLR? |
The 5D for portrait, and the 40D for everything else. The 5D was the first affordable full frame, with the ability for shallow DOF which that enables. But the 5D felt clunky otherwise. The 40D, on the other hand, was both affordable and simply got everything right. Good IQ, felt right in the hand, very responsive, instant startup, good viewfinder, good menu system, high FPS, etc. I had a 20D before, and the 40D just killed it. I had no qualms letting the 20D go, but even though I now have a 7D, the 40D remains in use. I had both the 5D and 40D, and the 40D took more than 90% of the pictures.
So, another vote for the 40D, but I'll tip my hat to the videographers that vote the game changing 5DII.
