Canon EOS 40D Rumors Run Rampant

Anticipation of a new Canon digital SLR has reached a fever pitch, as Canon's Hong Kong site accidentally-on-purpose titled a blank page "EOS 40D" (see mockup of the camera above). Competition is fierce in this market segment, with Canon feeling the heat from the Nikon D80 and D40, and it's high time Canon released a new model.

A few tantalizing details were leaked last September about the upcoming Canon EOS 40D, foreseeing the company's next DSLR using a 10.1 megapixel image sensor, 2.5 inch viewscreen, an anti-dust feature, and using CompactFlash cards. It won't be long before we find out how accurate this prediction was.
