Hi, i was wondering if the canon 400D has grid allinment in viewfinder,
and the expence of a anti shake lense.
Does the 9 point AF system show up on the viewfinder?
may someone explain the AF system to me and what the advantage is to have a 9 point af over a 3 point?
thanks

Hi Aidan, that's a lot of questions, so I'll just answer a couple!

No, there is no grid visible in the 400D viewfinder - and you can't fit a new focusing screen with one either.

Yes, you can see the focusing points in the viewfinder - this applies to all DSLRs.

One of the advantages of a 9 point focus system when compared to a 3 point one, is that the camera will much likely be able to keep focus on a moving subject.

If, however, you tend to use only the centre focus point and the recompose and/or you shoot mostly static subjects, a 9 point system isn't really necessary. It all depends of your photography style.
