Summary: The Canon EOS 40D is another great SLR camera made by this manufacturer. The 10.1 Megapixel sensor is the hallmark of this model, therefore, allows to obtain even better than the already excellent Canon Eos 30d. For the rest, good magnesium alloy body, wide choice of goals, long-life battery.
Summary: The EOS 40D is the perfect solution for those who dreamed of a 1D Mark III but couldn’t afford it. It can also be used as an excellent secondary solution for professional photographers. It’s impressive to see all the things that Canon managed to put inside this new EOS.
Pros: The style, Image quality in ISO 1600., Live View., Very quick Auto Focus., Settings possibilities,, … and more.
Cons: I don’t want to give it back!, No AF in LiveView., Buttons under the screen are too sensitive.

Conclusion: Seven years since the EOS D30, the sixth incarnation of that camera displays all of the advantages of a progressive evolution in both features and quality. With each step up the evolutionary ladder to the EOS 40D Canon has demonstrated improvements in image quality, performance, usability and...

Summary: Canon’s EOS 40D is a camera that boasts some neat technology, so much there’s not room to do it all justice here, suffice to say, barring the metering anomaly (which a firmware upgrade is likely to sort easily), this is a great camera with a massive potential and worth a closer look.
Pros: Handling, image quality, ease of use, good dust removal system and prevention, AF, great colour and white balance, low noise, Good software.
Cons: Over crowded buttons, fussy button/dial combinations, metering foibles.
Excerpt: Canon's EOS 30D was the DSLR middleweight contender to beat for most of 2007, thanks to its tough body, great image quality, fast autofocus, and semi-pro controls. So it's no surprise that the new 10.1MP EOS 40D ($1,300, street, body only; $1,500, street, with EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens)...
Excerpt: Don't think for a minute that the new Canon EOS 40D is simply an incremental upgrade to the 30D. Although the 10.1-megapixel EOS 40D has a virtually identical hand-feel to the 8.2 megapixel EOS 30D it replaces, it shows improvements over its predecessor in several ways.
Excerpt: We'll admit it. It took us some time to warm up to the idea of "Live View" functions on DSLRs. No more! Now that we've spent some time in the studio with the Canon EOS 40D and its Live View capabilities, we're sold on its uses in the studio and other controlled situations.
