I hope that the new grip gets a redesign and has better build (Metal would be great) rather then just adding a couple of rubber gaskets to the existing model.

Can't wait to see the pics of the new gear!

how much was the 30D when it came out? 1300 bucks for this camera seems like a really good deal.

Here is the new 18-55mm IS lens by itself...

http://www.amazon.com/Canon-EF-S-18-55mm-3-5-5-6-Lens/dp/B000V5K3FG/ref=sr_1_1/002-0580043-6317644?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1187532438&sr=8-1

But the question I have... is the kit that Amazon is selling really with the 28-135mm IS that is listed in the top of the posting bellow, or is that really going to have the 18-55mm IS? I pre-ordered one and basically did so because I felt the 28-135mm IS at $200 above the body only price was a good deal (given that lens normally sells for like $400).

You'll find it at the bottom of the page.

I like it! I'll wait to see if it has AF issues, but if it doesn't, I'm an owner.

Question about the "Enhanced" Live View: Why is the "AF-ON button enables AF in Live View Mode" not implemented in the 1DMkIII or even on the upcoming 1DsMkIII (based also on the Amazon specs). It's the same simple implementation anyway (just temporarily lower the reflex mirror while AFing), I wonder why Canon didn't think of it earlier. Also this Live View feature seems to be new also:

A new electronic 1st-curtain shutter function in Live View mode reduces release time lag and operational noise even further to avoid spooking wildlife or disturbing people nearby with unwanted camera sounds. Additionally, as the release time lag is miniscule, even instantaneous movements like a bird taking flight can be readily captured.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but this also wasn't implemented in the 1DMkIII Live View IIRC? So the 40D gets two new useful Live View "enhancements" over the flagship 1dMkIII, kewlie.

It appears that Canon has been listening to consumers this time around and have designed a camera that according to the specs should satisfy most everyone. This could possibly be the ultimate wildlife camera! I was noticing that Canon has a new grip designed for this camera but also like the fact that existing 20D/30D users can continue to use their grips that they currently own according to the detail specs at the Amazon link. I expect the new design has seals for the battery door and between the camera and grip. I think it may be time to give the 20D to my wife for good and add something new to my kit!

It went from no preorder-sign me up thing, to not even being there anymore? Man somebody did a nice hack job

I let you know when I get mine... I guess I will risk any potential problems like that... given I'm currently shooting with a 300D, I'm pretty confident it will focus better then what I've got now...

Worse yet, now when you search for the 40D at Amazon.com, you can't even click through to the more detailed description, etc... it seems as if amazon is trying to clean up their early release of info...

But... many of us have already saved complete HTML for the pages...

Hmm...I was set on upgrading to a 5D later this year, but now I may have to wait and see.

These high-level features are very exciting. While I'm sure it has a lot to do with fighting back to Nikon, part of me thinks that Canon has some new, breakthrough features in the works, so they aren't worried about reserving these features for their top models anymore. Once the new features come out, their top models will once again be significantly separated from the X0D's.

I hope they've toned down the shutter racket to match the nice quiet 400D.


The Silent Mode operation from the 1D3 made it into the 40D, so you can delay the mirror return slap by not immediately releasing the shutter release.

its now gone from the amazon site.

wow, that was quick - either a fake or a big mistake on Amazon's part.

someone with a better memory than mine, was the high precision center focus point still an f/2.8 or better?

and the other cross points - they were just 'standard' cross points, right? Is that a significant improvement? On the 20D I only use the center point anyway.
