Canon EOS 40D

dpreview have posted a 'detailed preview' of Canon's replacement for the class-leading 'prosumer' EOS 30D.

As the owner of a Sigma SD9, I have a tendency to dismiss SLRs fitted with Bayer CCDs. However having visited dpreview's recently posted range of beta sample images taken with the EOS 40D, I'm extremely impressed.

The colours are natural, detail is excellent, and a couple of pictures taken at ISO 3200 has almost no noise or smearing at all. In fact, they are almost indistinguishable in quality from images captured with Canon and Nikon 'Pro' cameras costing between £4,000 - £6,000.

The EOS 40D is released in October, costing in the region of £1,000.
