Canon EOS 40D - an excellent Canon digital SLR!!
Hardcore Canon digital SLR fans need wait no more for their next camera. The Canon 40D has arrived. Some updates that appear on the 40D are a little late, others are a sign of the times.
With the same rugged, conservative shape, the Canon EOS 40D will be mostly familiar, save for a few moved controls, an extra button or two, and a very large 3.0-inch LCD.
Its 10.1-megapixel sensor finally gives Canon's semi-pro digital camera parity with the majority of its competitors, and a 6.5-frame-per-second continuous mode helps speed things up over the current competition at this price level.
The Canon 40D also has an improved viewfinder, an enhanced Live View mode, better dust sealing, and the DIGIC III image processor that allows 14-bit analog to digital conversion for better color rendition. Canon's improved upon the standard 9-point AF array on the EOS 40D by making all points Cross-type, which, combined with other improvements, results in a claimed 30% greater AF speed.
Other additions on the Canon 40D include interchangeable focusing screens, a much-needed AF-ON button, the EOS Integrated Cleaning System for sensor dust reduction, and three new optional accessories: an IS version of the 18-55mm kit lens; a new backward-compatible, weather-sealed battery grip; and a new Wireless File Transmitter that will allow remote control of the camera as well as transmission of a Live View image from the camera to the computer.
At first blush, the Canon 40D consists mostly of incremental improvements, once again. The EOS 40D is not as groundbreaking as some would like, but it's arguable that serious photographers don't want to have to learn whole new ways using their main tools. It's also important to note that Canon's semi-pro SLRs, both the 20D and 30D, are much loved by their owners, producing excellent image quality despite the "mere" 8-megapixel sensor. The line in general has never been about sex-appeal, but about solid, reliable performance.
Look and feel. True to the line, the Canon EOS 40D appears very similar to its predecessors, especially the EOS 30D and 5D. From the back, however, there is one very large difference: the 3.0-inch LCD. Its influence on the back control layout is so great that they had to move four of the buttons that are usually arrayed to the left of the screen to the bottom, under the LCD. When it comes to viewing images, composing in Live View, or changing menu settings, the large LCD is great to have.
Heft & Grip. The EOS 40D feels similar to the EOS 30D, weighing only 1.4 ounces more than its predecessor, and it's also very slightly larger in all dimensions, most noticeable is its height. The grip has a good-sized indent for the middle finger, as we've enjoyed on the EOS 5D and other recent SLRs we've handled. The indent on the 40D seems a little broader than the 5D, and a lot bigger than the 1D-series. Regardless of size, this divot improves control, and better centers the hand for the right grip every time.
Body. The Canon EOS 40D's body is still magnesium alloy, but Canon says they've improved seals against dust and water. New seals protect connection ports, the battery compartment, and the compact flash door. The frame is stainless steel, and the mirror box is high-strength engineering plastic. Holding the Canon 40D is like gripping a well-sculpted rock: solid, with no twisting or creaking. The EF lens mount is metal, compatible with all Canon EOS EF and EF-S lenses.Read full review

the image quality of the 40D is excellent !!
Almost immediately upon the announcement of the Canon EOS 40D, the most-frequently asked question I have been receiving since the announcement of the Canon EOS 400D/Rebel XTi one year ago nearly disappeared from my inbox. Until this time, the lower end Canon DSLR had a couple of desirable feature advantages over the 40D's predecessor, the Canon EOS 30D. Now, aside from size (which may or may not be an advantage), weight and cost, the 40D is clearly the better camera in this comparison.
The 40D's very long list new/improved features makes this camera a very nice upgrade over the XTi, the 30D and their predecessors. Though most people are not going to find any one new or improved feature compelling enough to justify an upgrade from the 30D, combine all of these features and the Canon EOS 40D begins looking very attractive. There are a lot of 20D owners who sat out the 30D upgrade cycle who will give serious consideration to bringing a 40D home.
The 30D set the bar high. It is an all-around great camera that delivers the great image quality Canon is legendary for. The Canon EOS 40D announcement was one of the most-anticipated Canon EOS announcements ever. We had high hopes for the 30D's upgrade.
When reading the announcement, I was quickly let down/disappointed to hear that the XTi/400D's sensor was the basis for Canon's new-at-this-time camera. Not that the XTi/400D sensor is bad - it is very good - 10.1 megapixels is a very high resolution image - this is plenty of detail for most uses. I was just hoping for a more radical upgrade. I quickly took heart when I learned that improved microlenses were positioned over this sensor - and that 14 bit capture had been implemented - along with the expected DIGIC III processor.
With the same sensor density, the 40D resolves detail very similarly to the XTi/400D - and better than the 30D. These are the results I expected. You can visually compare the resolution difference using the ISO 12233 Resolution Chart crop sample comparison tool. This comparison was shot using the Canon EF 200mm f/2.8 L II USM Lens - I suggest using an f/4 aperture for comparing, but most below f/8 will work fine. Several other DSLR results are available for this lens, so other comparisons can be made as well.
In real life shots, the difference between 8 and 10 megapixel images is not big. The extra image detail is always welcomed, but will not be a sole reason for most people to upgrade from a 20D or 30D.
To reach this resolution in an APS-C sized (1.6x FOVCF) sensor, the XTi/400D and 40D sensors are required to be the most-dense of any found in a Canon DSLR body to this date. As sensor size decreases, pixel-level image quality often decreases as there is less light reaching each individual pixel well. The visible difference is often in the form of noise - especially high ISO noise. We saw this in the XTi/400D compared to the 30D.
The good news is, the Canon EOS 40D essentially matches the 30D's low noise capabilities. The process of determining this was not exactly straight forward as I've determined that the 40D's sensor is about 1/6 to 1/3 of a stop less sensitive than the 30D's. This means that images shot with identical shooting parameters (shutter speed, aperture & ISO) are not exposed exactly the same. I should note here that the 40D's metering is fine - this change does not cause underexposed images.Read full review

This is one of the best cameras out there for the price in my opinion. It delivers excellent image quality, with great colors and detail. The camera is also very responsive and is more than enough for my needs. It powers on quickly, even with the dust removal feature on and has virtually no shutter lag. The menu system is also very intuitive and easy to learn and the my menu feature (allows you to store a few settings that can be quickly accessed rather than having to go through all of the menu tabs) is good for me about 90% of the time and keeps me from having to go through the whole menu interface. I also like the 6.5fps shooting, which is handy for my wildlife shooting. Autofocus is very good with all points being cross type and the outer points are usable in all conditions. Focus tracking is decent, but not up to what you would get with a 7D or Nikon D300. If you're strictly a sports shooter then I would recommend either one of those cameras. That being said, The 40D has been decent at birds in flight and animal tracking for me. I couldn't justify the price difference for my needs, so I picked up a second 40D rather than upgrading. Your experience may very, but I find this to be a very good camera body at an unbeatable price on the used market. I couldn't justify the extra cost of the 50D for basically the same camera with 5 extra mp's and Micro-adjustment.Read full review

Everything I Expected :)
My recent purchase of the Canon 40d was everything I had hoped for. The crystal clear pictures it produces are exactly what I would expect from a semi-pro dslr. I hadn't even realized that this model does provide a "live view" function which displays the current acquisition on the large lcd screen on the back of the camera. At the time I own only one lens for this camera, but I am very satisfied with the versatility of it. I own a 50mm prime lens, which is excellent for indoor photography and snapshots. I may have used the flash twice since I got the camera and that was only because there was almost no light. With the camera in the "HI" iso mode I have yet to create a noisy image due to low lighting. My only complaint so far with this item is that the battery does drain quite rapidly while shooting high speed rapid succession shots. Other than this minor tribble I am very pleased with this camera and its functionality. An excellent buy!Read full review
