I have read that some experience more grain with the 50D then the 40D due to so many more pixels. Not sure if this is true or not.
Thank you everyone for your input. Coming the end of the month I should have one or the other.
I have both the 40D and 50D, both the cameras are a good upgrade from the 350D, I suggest you go for the 50D, due to the 1 to 1.5 stop advantage on noise level against the 40D. I know the shooting conditions you are facing since both you and me are shooting in the same region.
However, if money is no object than go for the Mk3. It beats the 50D hands down. I use the Mk3 as my primary and my 40D as secondary until I got hold of the 50D. The AF tracking of the Mk3 is definitely better than the 50D it is useful for BIF and the AF is faster and AF at f/8.0 will not be a problem with the Mk3.
