Is this what Olympus thinks 40D will be?

This is purported to be from a leaked Olympus internal marketing presentation given earlier in June in Europe to review market positioning of an Oly pro DSLR. It apparently represents their best guess on how the 40D and Nikon D300 features will compare/compete with their camera's specs.

Interesting if real!

Specs. pulled from that same article:

12mp., Digic 3, 35 AE areas, 9 point AF, 5 fps, 1/8000 shutter, 1/250 flash sync, 2.7" LCD, Dust reduction, Live View.

The plot thickens on this and it seems we're really getting closer to the 40D!:D :D :D

Looking at those specs they'd better have a 5D replacement out pretty much at the same time or else they'll start losing sales... pretty much the only darn thing the 5D'll have as an advantage there will be full-frame!

...which isn't /that/ different to how things are at the moment but at least it has the better high ISO advantage and 50% more pixels, which does count for quite a bit...

I really think the only thing going for the 5D is full frame. I've seen noise comparisons between it and my 20D and they compared fairly equally and the 20D actually was better on some. I take pictures frequently at 1600iso with very little noise. That reason and the loss of long lenses forced me to reconsider my decision to buy the 5D.

Those are the reasons I'm looking forward to the 40D so much!

I would prefer 12mp only with a 1.3X sensor or 10mp with the 1.6X. Live view would be nice for macro and I think the dust removal is basically a gimmick but necessary with the market the way it is. I would be very pleased with a 2.7" viewer or even 3". Now that would be fantastic! My little 2" screen needs updating!

It would not surprise me if the successor to the 30D has specs like this. I would also expect the same 15-point (6 invisible) AF system as the 5D.

The live-view feature would come in handy if it could be zoomed for manual focus, or used remotely on a laptop or desktop computer. And, it is probably cheaper than making a better viewfinder.

my 5d has much lower, and much more pleasing noise then anything my old 30d had... I have owned both and the 5d file is just beautiful compared to the 30/20d....

I based my opinion mostly on a test found here on POTN, I think. I wish I had saved it. But, the 20D noise level was on a par and sometimes better than the 5D.

I also have seen other tests but don't have copies of them.

I had saved my money for months with the goal of buying the 5D. I researched it a lot and found the noise comparisons and felt that I wouldn't improve my low light shots with the results I saw. And of course, as I mentioned, the loss of my high end on telephoto. The IQ overall on the 5D is better though but I can't justify the price anymore.

I'm glad you enjoy your 5D and I know many do. It is a wonderful camera for sure as I think my 20D is too. That's why I'm looking forward to the 40D!

The 20D files at high ISO are pretty clean, but at the expense of detail being smoothed over. Shooting a color swatch with no detail isn't an accurate comparison, which I remember seeing as well and thinking the same thing (20D was as good). I love my 20D, but I have come to realize how much detail is smoothed over. So, I only use it at 1600/3200 as a last resort and frame as tightly as I can to get as much details as possible.

Why the hell would an official Olympus PDF call for cameras to be "Sprash Proof"?
