    Comments about Canon EOS 40D Digital SLR:

    Unlike the cosmetic update called "30D", the 40D is finally a solid reason to find a new home for my 20D and upgrade. For me the biggest improvements are ...

    - new AF system with 9 cross-type sensors
    - larger (brighter) viewfinder
    - Antidust feature
    - new sensor with enlarged microlenses
    - DiG!C III processor / 14bit AD converter
    - 6.5 fps / larger buffer

    LiveView and larger screen are nice but less important for image quality. The screen is brighter and nicer than the 30D, but also with less viewing angle.

    Finally, the 40D shows the current ISO speed in the view finder, which avoids issues where I started the day in a dim environment and then finish in the ISO1600 setting despite enough light being available -- at the expense of achievable image quality.

    The higher pixel count is nice, but it's good to see Canon not playing the "I got more than you" game. The 20D and 30D were known for low noise (in an APS-C sensor) and the 40D continues that tradition.

    Overall, the Canon 40D is in many ways a refined Nikon D200. (Of course Nikonians will deny that.)
