The 40D is still a great pro-sumer camera, but it's been replaced by the Canon EOS 50D. We recommend buying that one. Here's what we had to say about the 40D when it was released in August 2007:

It's finally here! Canon's much talked about, much rumored 40D has arrived, and it's even better than you might have heard. A fine successor to the well-received 30D and 20D, the 40D brings the Canon EOS SLR line up to ten megapixels, brings the advanced DIGIC III image processor, and gussies itself up with a luxurious 3.0-inch LCD screen.
