The 40D is still a great pro-sumer camera, but it's been replaced by the Canon EOS 50D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.
