    That's an incredibly misleading comparison to make, and people would
    have to be pretty darn stupid to make buying decisions based on it (or
    indeed to make such a meaningless comparison in the first place).

    The only valid comparison is between two items at the same time, at
    the same supplier. And on any such comparison, the 40D is in a much
    higher price bracket than the Rebel XTi.

    At B&H:

    Rebel XTi, $539.95.

    40D, $1299.95.

    The 40D costs 2.4 TIMES as much as the XTi.

    A Mac? Don't trust its computerized character color-coordination.
    It probably thinks that red is the new black, and that Macaroons
    want to keep up with the latest styles. You don't by any chance
    happen to have a red iPod, do you?

  5. Nah, just a white one in a black rubber case. I have a black ViewSonic
    and a grey LaCie, a grey and silver printer, a white keyboard, and a two
    shades of grey Wacom. ie, extremely un-color-coordinated and not chic at
    all.

    IF we were shopping cameras and comparing the two at today's price... But
    the original post merely asked what the replacement for the XTi would be.

    Both the XT and XTi were introduced at $999. The CanonUSA site lists the 40D
    as "NEW" with a suggested retail price of $1299. (Granted, that's body
    only.)

    Now, if the original poster was in the market for an XTi, then great deals
    are to be had. But if he's looking for the XTi's replacement, then I'm happy
    to suggest the 40D. And the 40D's original price is only $300 above the
    XTi's original price. ($500, if you want to include the kit lens.)

    No, it didn't. It alleged that the XTi is discontinued. It isn't.

    One day it will be. But not today.
