I doubt there is any truth to the rumour. Canon usully keeps things quiet till just before the announcement is made.

Just look at the introduction date of the 30D. Then add, as a sort of predictor, the 18 month product cycle that we've seen before with consumer dSLRs to the mix. Where do you end up? August. Close enough to July, so it seems plausible.

Just how high of a frequency does ultra-ultrasonic use? Is the 40D going to be a special model for photographing bats, dolphins, etc.?

The guy told me that ultra-USM uses a combination of ultrasound and the magnetic field of the titanium casing to move the lens element to prevent front/back focus.

Transwarp-Drive

The full name for Transwarp-Drive is Selective Transwarp-Drive (STD). Allows you to capture 65 RAW files per second.

Just for kicks, and in the name of rampant speculation..

If the 1D MK3 uses two Digic III chips to process 10 MP at 10 fps, is it unreasonable to assume the 40D will use one Digic III chip to process 10 MP at 5 fps?

Seems like a perfectly reasonable route. That specification, probably Live View, and perhaps an improved AF system. Sounds like a winner.

Dave, I'd take the improved focusing over live view any day. And hoping for some better igh ISO low noise performance

Spoke with 2 Canon reps, over the last 6 weeks or so, and one of the major retailers' store owners over here.

The 40D is expected in store at the end of June, and at the latest the beginning of July. This is what they said. No specs, though.

Furthermore, the replacement for the 1Ds MkII is expected in September, and at the latest beginning of December.

Oh, and all in this year, 2007 .

Kind regards, Wim

One thing's for sure... Canon's lack of advancement in the 20D/30D/40D market has given the competition a heck of a chance to catch up or get ahead.

The decision to break routine and get the body to market earlier might not be a bad one if it were to actually take place. If they actually do, it won't leave any time for the competition to react to what they release before fall, so it could be a really strong move to both release it and see major sales prior to 2008.

The competition has been ahead for a while. Canon just keeps lowering the price of the 30D, so there remains a huge gap between the 30D and 5D.

West Photo in Minneapolis says probably six to ten months for the 40D. The next camera will likely be the Mark lllS

These people have no more idea what Canon is going to do than I do. Why would they be privy to info nobody else has ?
Good luck.



Best post of this thread.

I was hopping for APS-H form factor and digic 3 this would put it well above anything from Nikon.

I used to like you Tom, but you've turned out to be a real jerk. I am not going to watch any more of your movies.

If people want to believe that the 40d is coming in July, let them.
You can't persecute people based on their beliefs. Come on, read the forum rules....

Only TransWarp? I thought they were putting in the short-distance site-to-site transporter so that sports and wedding photographers can zip around more quickly.

I love how it will be "available in July." At this rate, the mkIII won't be available until August, and it was announced a couple months back.
