Good clear, sharp images Nikola.

You've got a new camera 450D? How does it compare to your 400D?

Yep, I just didn't resist. I was like a child in front of cake shop. Confused
Now I'll must delay planned new faster and stronger PC for about half year. I'll need it to process increasing amount of image data. Shocked
Well, there is a bunch of small improvements, nothing dramatic but it can please you. It would not be mistake to skip one generation and wait to next year camera. (But I didn't! Embarassed )
My first impressions?
Better handling - better comfortable hand grip.
Bigger and brighter viewfinder as well as LCD screen with more information.
I have a feeling that focusing is more accurate and faster. (Even in low light.)
A slightly better control of noise I think and a little more details (I can see now some fine hairs on miniature 2mm spider abdomen which I didn't before) if I'm not wrong. Think
It looks that JPEG-s are much heavier than 20% (from 10 to 12 mp).
A little more room for cropping, also.
And old memory cards and batteries doesn't fit which is not nice of them! Shocked
