Upgrading from Canon XSI to 40D

Well, after going to Medieval Times couple weeks ago and shooting at ISO 1600 and F/2.8 to get my shutter speed remotely close to action shot numbers, I got frustrated and just bought a used Canon 40D.

I love my XSI but I do find high ISO noise very unforgiving. I tried to underexpose shots to get rid of motion blur - but the noise after correcting the exposure in Lightroom was way out of wack!

So, I bit the bullet and went with Canon 40D - I hope the loss of 2 MP will not be noticeable.

I am looking forward to ISO 3200, 6.5 fps and better AF in low light

if anyone interested in barely used Canon XSI and Sigma 18-200 f/3.5-6.3 lens - let me know

What is wrong about the noise? I wouldn't care. Some pics look just great with the noise

That's the reason I have a great noise reduction plug in for photoshop. I start the process in lightroom, then edit it in photoshop with the noise reduction plug in. It works great, but I am jealous. I want a 40D, or 50D.
