I finally understand Phil's rating

for image quality of 40D (9 out of 10).

From http://www.astrosurf.com/buil/nikon_test/test.htm

"According the current measures, the Canon 40D CMOS is slightly less noisy than the CMOS Nikon D3 CMOS, but the gap is not very significant......

The readout noise of the Nikon and Canon CMOS detectors is very similar. The high ISO sensitivity displayed by Nikon is for the marketing: Nikon D3 CMOS (and also the CMOS D300 CMOS - Sony origin) is a very high quality sensor, but in the end, Nikon just rises now to the level of Canon technology."

So, if Canon has implemented a more aggressive noise-reduction (fortunately NOT) like Nikon, the 40D may very well have the same performance as the D3? Ho, ho, ho....
