since no one yet written a review for this camera body, I think I should write one just to give you some idea. The eos 40D is newly introduced in this August, Aug 07. One thing pops up to me is the LCD live preview. The LCD live preview is first introduced in Olympics DSLR. It allows the user to have live preview in the LCD like the most of the Non-DSLR do. It is useful to take pictures in a rather different angle such low in the ground.
another thing is the 6.5 fps shutter mechanic. now you can shoot 6.5 pictures in a second up to 75 pictures. You will never lose any thing with this camera in continuous mode.
The 40D now updated with a dust removing system which first found in the 400D. In my professorial opinion, it really doesn't useful. You just need to be cautious when you change the lens.
The most important update to me is now that 40D has a bigger viewfinder. A bigger viewfinder means brighter, easily to focus, and bigger. Those entry DSLRs just aren't big enough.

In conclusion, the 40D is an affordable professional and serious amateur photographer's first choice. If you don't have one, you should own one.

That's not a review, that's just recapping what we already know from the specs sheet. I've got $20 that says the person that wrote that doesn't even own one yet.

I would not buy anything off Amazon, since yesterday an item turned up that was ordered in January, now I got to send it back as I bought said item months ago, and need to try and get my £220-00 back off them :(

as for your review, on the 40D, think there are a few more points on the Camera than the Live View, :) that are more important, as for dust removal system, well only time will tell, but I certainly see it as a clean sensor over my 30D, when there was often some series large black Blobs one my pictures that forever moved around.
I certainly am very happy about the 40D overall, a very good upgrade

Actually I think Live View showed up in the Canon 20 DA before the Oly evolt 300 series.
That was the super Astronomy model of the 20D with the IR filter *removed* for deep sky object sensitivity and Live View to help with star focusing. But alas...only for a short while was it available and only now is Live View back but you still have to pay big bucks to get any of the Canon bodies modded so the IR filter is yanked by third parties.

The best I ever saw was a body modded by a S.Korean firm that builds a moded XT that is also *cooled*...KILLER.

Lotsa stuff, running outta room and a wife...I keep looking at her and wondering??? :lol:
