However, if you will be using the camera as a P&S, you are unlikely to see the differences.
I'm trying to decide between the 30d & 40d. I know that there is a MP difference & the vibrating cleaner, but I'm wondering if that will make much of a difference to an amateur like me. There is a $370 difference & I'm wondering if that would be better spent in lenses or the camera. I will probably just put on one long zoom lens & use it as a point & shoot camera. I will be photographing car races & basketball & baseball games. Also, I currently have a 75-300mm lens on my 35mm & would like some recommendations on something similar for this camera.
