Great Camera - good as the 50d - good lens package.
9 November 2009
Summary: The 40d is nearly as good as the newer 50d, but when I got mine the sensor cleaner malfunctioned within a week. I ended up returning it for a full refund after using it for several shoots, and got a 50d instead. Pictures in low light are slightly better with the 50d, and that was my biggest need.
Summary: Thanks to Newegg for great service and return policies! You guys ROCK!! For some images sgot with the camera go to Strgazr27.Zenfolio.Com ENJOY!
Pros: Well designed and manufactured. Easy to move through menu system. It's a Canon !
Cons: This is the 4th 40D body I have owned over the last few months for various reasons. The latest and from what I am finding out, quite common is a serious problem with horizontal banding when shooting at high ISO's (Over 400) This is the 2nd body to exhibit this to varying degrees. A web search wil...
Summary: I have had this camera for about 2 months now. I bought it to be able to take lower light level shots with less graininess than my previous Canon G3. I also wanted better optics and resolution. I was a bit disappointed with the low level light performance.
Summary: I love this camera. I've been dedicated to Canon and they've never let me down. This is no exception. I do with that it had better low-light functionality and maybe even went to 6400 (3200 is alright though) but for the price point you can't go wrong.
Summary: I've owned it for about nine months. I won't go into a detailed writeup since pleanty of other people have already done so. Here is a quick summary of the strong points and weak points of this camera. Strengths: * 6 FPS - Fast enough for photojournalism and sports on a budget.
Summary: Couldn't be happier with the 40D. I made my chioice after doing a lot of online research between Nikons and the Canon Rebel series. I even considered a 30D. It is my first DSLR, after many point and shoot digitals. I also purchased the Canon 75-300mm IS and 50mm lens.
Summary: They just keep making this camera better. I love my 30D. It works great and has a nice price. When I got the 40D, I was very happy. They didn't change the things already like. What they did is improve on the annoyances I had with the 30D. The larger screen is amazing.
Summary: What can I say about the Canon 40D that hasn't already been written in dozens of photography magazines and web forums? Probably not a whole lot! LOL!!! If you are seriously considering this camera, chances are you are already familiar with the brand if not the model by now so I will just highlight...
Well done Canon - you've finally persuaded me to buy a DSLR

Summary: I've been a film camera user for years (olympus OM2 and a few rangefinders) and i've been watching the DSLR market waiting for the right balance of features, usability and price. I think the 40D is the first one (or certainly the first canon) that gets the balance just right.
Canon EOS 40D - wish the camera was as flawless as the images it takes.

Summary: I purchased the EOS 40D as a replacement/upgrade to a Canon Digital Rebel from a long time ago. With unbridled joy, I shot several thousand images of the Stanley Cup Playoffs using this body and a new Canon lens that I'll review elsewhere.
