Any chance of some sample images to show this, I've yet to see any evidence that the 50D handles noise better than the 40D, in fact images I've seen on the web suggest the exact opposite.

I'm amazed to hear you say that - I owned both 40D and 400D at the same time and saw a very clear difference in image quality. It was so obvious to me (tests done with a tripod and a 500 f4 showed this too) that I got rid of teh 400D for a second 40D.
