Studio scene comparison (higher sensitivities)

As you can see the EOS 40D does a fairly good job at maintaining detail at higher sensitivities although you can clearly see the softening effect of noise reduction, you can also see chroma noise creeping in (this could be reduced using the optional 'High ISO speed noise reduction' option.

The EOS 40D’s kit options vary depending on your region. Europe and Australasia have the sensible choice of either the new EF-S 18-55mm IS or the popular EF-S 17-85mm IS USM, while America has the somewhat curious option of the EF 28-135mm IS USM.

Very very sad because though the 40D isn't missing any feature in particular--though I could make a case for mechanical image stabilization--one feature I'd really like to see trickle down from the 1D series, and which I think makes a lot of sense in a camera of this class, is the ability to define acceptable ranges for aperture, shutter speed, and ISO sensitivity when shooting in one of the exposure-priority modes.

the new version looks better in the statistics but for my needs the EOS 30D is sufficient. Regards
