First Review of Canon 40D

The first review has hit the streets from Bob Atkins.

Quote:
The EOS 40D is more than a minor upgrade of the EOS 30D. It's basically a new camera with a new sensor, a new 14-bit processing engine, a new AF system and new features such as Live View, Highlight Priority and High ISO noise reduction as well as improved ergonomics with the enhanced 3" LCD. Though it looks much like the 20D/30D it seems to have a more "pro" feel - though I'm not sure why. Perhaps it's the quieter and faster shutter operation that simply makes it sound better!

Oops, posted the wrong price, should be S$2,759 incl GST. No body only price though.

Sorry about the error everyone, posted the 400D deal instead! This should be the right one! Hopefully we can get a good deal when Canon 40D is here..
