just got my 40D 2 hours ago and although i knew it was bigger than my 350D i didn't realise just how big.
i think i may also need a bigger bag for my new toy.

when I got my 40D as an upgrade from the 350D, it immediately felt so much better. The feel of the 350D is almost toy like in comparison, and the feel of a point and shoot in comparison to the 350D is even more toy like.

Its a really nice beefy camera! should treat you well!

I upgraded from a Canon S3, the 40D is three times bigger!
But I got used to the 40D's size really quick and now find the S3 too small and light. Also, I really like the 40D's grip, that is one of the reason why I chose it over the Rebel system. And, congrats on your new purchase, happy shooting!

Makes me Laugh at How big the 40D looks next to the 350D which is tiny I must admit,
but I also got a 40D last night and after using 1 series camera's for a couple of years the 40D looks like a toy next to it - so I guess its all relative to what you get used to
cheers Chris

I hope to make that move soon. Do you have a third camera that you can take a pic of both to compare the size difference. Thanks

its funny how like 1" and .5" here and there makes that much a difference.
I remember when I went from my 350D to the 30D..I was like WOW..now I moved up to a 1DMKII and my old 30D seemed like a toy now..LOL

I too went from the 350D to the 40D upgrade! It has really been a purchase I haven't ever looked back on! ;-)a Besides size you are going to fall in love with the control wheel on the back of the camera. That feature alone has been worth the upgrade for me.

Also...super avator! I'm assuming you are a ManU fan. I have been a fan for some years now and am quick to notice fellow followers! Congrats on the new camera. You're bound to enjoy it! ;-)a


Cheers,
LeBaron

just my sentiment when i opened the box...chunky!
i came from a XTi...I saw size comparisons on the net, and went in to Best Buy to try it a few times...but it was not until I got it that the grip really grew on me. I love it now.

congrats! great camera! i used a 400d before (now with the wife), now a 40d. i just love the size of it in my hands unlike the 400d which i had to attach a battery grip to make it comfortable to hold. enjoy your new toy!:D
