(via Zee’s Photography Blog)
Looks like the pricing and availability of the Canon 40D is out in the open now. If you look at the Best Buy inventory report above, it shows the Canon 40D “in-stock” on September 2, 2007. If that’s the price card for the 40D, the you’re looking at a whoppin’ $1600 for the new camera, presumably with a kit lens.
Also on Gizmodo.
Looks like it started on (where else) DPReview.com.
After digging in the forum a bit, it appears that camera includes the Canon EF 28-135 IS lens.

Somehow I missed this:
As of December 2006, Nikon had a 47% share of the Japanese DSLR market compared to Canon’s 35%.

Join in on the rumor mill with the usual suspects on DPReview.com.
Is Canon really scheduled to make press releases on August 20th?
More word of a Nikon D3 release SOON:
This isn’t official but I’m pretty certain there’s a fair bit of truth in this: Today my husband spoke to his relative who works for Nikon and they’ve apparently been sent information regarding a new camera (Nikon D3 – somewhere in the range of 18-22 mega-pixels) & new lenses all of which will be announced on 25th August. I’m not certain if he mentioned a full-frame sensor or if it’s going to be a 1.1 crop (my attention span on the phone is pretty bad!) Whatever the case, I hope they stick to this date for the announcement & don’t put it off for too much longer…
Maybe I should plan for some vacation time from the factory – there’s gonna be a lot of blogging to do this month if these rumors are legit.
Come on Canon and Nikon . . . I’m running out of creative names for these posts.

As the summer goes on, it seems that more and more people have talked to a Nikon or Canon “rep” or perhaps someone else that they “know” in either company. Based on these conversations, several individuals around the web have “confirmed” that the next big thing from both manufacturers is coming . . . soon.
in a conversation with a Nikon engineer at an event one week ago, I was told that there would be a new pro-level DSLR released ‘within a month or two’.
I asked him “D3?” “yes.”
I asked him “full frame?” “yes.”
Then he said: “in a couple months, Canon won’t even know what it them.”
Yes, it’s hearsay….but given the persistent info from the consistently reliable “jeff_c” on DPReview and the comments from this guy last week, I’d say that we’re about to see at least one pro camera with crop, full frame with crop mode or full frame, probably upward of 16-20mp, and a huge modular viewfinder.
I did NOT get the impression that we’d see a D3H right away, or that dramatically new sensor tech would be involved, although that may well be wrong.
I spoke to the Canon rep, when he was visiting my local camera shop, the other day… he told me that the 40D is due to come out in the next month, using the same sensor as the XTi and the Mark III… and the price of the 30D will be dropping $200.00 … I’m seriously considering the 40D…. more fps and other advantages..
Do people really get this info from “reps”? Do reps really “know” what’s going on? Anybody else out there seen or heard from a rep that has the scoop? Let us know; comment below.

From the DPReview.com forums:
I’m not one to spread rumors and you’ve never found one by me on this site. My salesmen today at a local photo store in Rochester NY told me today that their Canon rep clearly stated their is indeed a 40d and the scheduled release date is sometime in November. No specific date was provided by the rep.
He’s never lied to me before, so I believe him to honest, at least in terms of what the rep claims anyway.

Something’s surely up, the “legitimate” rumors are too numerous to be coincidental.

Well, it looks like the Canon 40D is finally halfway official. It appeared on the CIPA Pictbridge certification list as reported by Engadget and everyone else, their brother and their cousin‘s uncle. You might even find a 40D discussion in the DPReview.com forums. Well Canon, we’re waiting…
