Leaked details about the latest model—the 40D—are making the rounds. The Canon EOS 40D is predicted to sport a 10.1-megapixel image sensor, a 2.5-inch display and some sort of anti-dust feature. For the most part, thats all that's been leaked thus far (even this picture is a mock-up), but it wouldn't take much to assume that it'll cost about as much as the current 30D, or about $1,300.

If Internet moles can be trusted, expect to see the compact flash-friendly EOS 40D on September 26.

DISCUSSION

The Canon EOS 40D will definetly be worth the upgrade for current 20D and most 30D users. Although the specs have not officially been released, the advantage of the 10MP sensor, self cleaning sensor, DIGIC III (up to ISO6400) image processor, and the larger LCD make the 40D seem very worth it. I've been using my 20D for about three years and its beaten and had its use.

It is possible that the 40D will be full frame, but canon would never do so, as it renders all the "digital" 1.6 lenses as unusable. I believe Canon will reserve full frame sensors for thier pro lines.

I estimate that the price of the 40D will be around $1500. When its launched, guaranteed I'll be in line!
