Although the picture is not properly focussed (or too shallow DOF) the 40D is sitll a very competent camera. Don't be discouraged by all the people talking techno talk and other pixel peepers in this forum. It completely shows what is wrong with current photographers. It is only a tool and it is about the art of photography.

Any later model that lets say the 30D is a very capable camera. The AF and FPS on the 40D is good enough, high ISO is perfectly controllable in Lightroom and the build quality is good. This is why I still use it today.

If Canon manages to sort out the 7DmkII and it is a proper camera, I will finally upgrade. And not because of the better IQ, faster AF and FPS or remote Flash support. But the HD video option is what I am missing on my 40D.
