Amazon.com accidentally or intentionally (we never know) leaked the specs of the rumored Canon EOS 40D here . Unfortunately the page is now down.
I found this from PiPho posted by catterpillar & pubert.
I highlighted the notable differences from its predecessor the EOS 30D.
-DIGIC III – probably same low noise ISO like 1dmk3
-it says “Enhanced Live View” it now has AF
-cross type AF
-“The EOS 40D camera’s completely redesigned nine-point AF sensor provides cross-type AF
-“For the first time in any EOS camera, the 40D model offers Auto ISO capability in Creative Zone exposure modes.”
-“the new Wireless File Transmitter WFT-E3A permits wireless transfer and back-up”
-sRAW or small RAW
-EOS Integrated Cleaning System
-14bit A/D conversion
Interesting specs! 😉
