I am a Nikon guy so I have a more limited knowledge about the Canon line. However I know they are as good a choice.
With a DSLR I think it's important to choose a camera able to handle the type of shooting you enjoy. The main issue is response time. If you shoot landscape, still life, any camera will work great as long as the definition is good (enough megapixels). If your main interest is action and sports you need a camera that has no shutter lag (time it takes the camera to make the shot after you press the shutter), and fast AF response. The 40D is known to be a great camera and will surely handle fast action needs. It is also known to have a very decent low noise qualities at high ISO speeds, something you will appreciate for indoor sports.
