Hopefully a win, win situation for all of us, no matter which brand we own, as long as no more brands, such as Konica Minolta Photo Imaging, bite the dust. There should also be some good deals to be done over the models being superceded.
Unfortunately I seriously doubt that the 40D will have a full frame sensor. It doesn't make much commercial sense as it would undercut Canon's premium cameras and discourage owners of Canon's entry level DSLRs (350D/XT & 400D/XTi) from upgrading if they have a substantial investment in EF-S lenses.
My wish is rather more modest. The 40D needs to have just one "must have" feature that my 400D lacks. I don't care what it is but I do need a reason to justify the expense of upgrading. Come to think of it, that full frame sensor sounds good. I wish!
Of course, even though he knows all about the 40D, Gordon isn't allowed to release any details despite the fact that, as web master of one of the premium camera review sites in the world, he already has a 40D for evaluation and a review ready for simultaneous release with the camera.
