does the 5D have more dynamic range than the 40D?

Re: No, the 40D will be better in that regard .

bigger pixels of the 5D should (in theory) make for higher dynamic range. Not sure about this.

Nevertheless 5D pictures have something "magic". They have a very different feeling to them. I have a Canon 20D and use the 5D quite often - everytime I'm surprised how much better the 5D pics look (beyond resolution and DOF) - I can't explain why - it's just my perception....

Let's hope the new 5D II will keep the "old" 5D look.
