It's not listed as a current camera, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't consider. I don't have any experience with any of the 40/50/XT/XTi product.
, or just buy one and play with it. There are advantages to be had with the D200/5D, but at this point the glass is more valuable to you than the body. If you can get a D50 or D70s used, go for it, and spend the saved $$$ on a lens or two.
