EDIT: Did not know what an NDA was until LarryT posted that and I googled it. Sorry for that folks.

Careful

I'd be careful if I were you. I'm sure that violates your company's NDA with Canon. If you did that at my company, you'd be canned instantly.

Oh come on!

Somebody who saw the information must be able to post it since they are not subject to the same NDA...

So you work at BBY too huh? I didn't see the 40D posted yet..awesome.

Again, just be careful. Don't show anybody else; I'm sure that neither BBY nor Canon would appreciate you showing info like that on a currently unreleased/ unannounced camera. But...obviously BBY corporate knows something the public may not yet know.

Ah, just caught it, thanks.

Any additional details on specs???

Re: Ah, just caught it, thanks.

No other info was on there. Even if it was, I'd be worried about posting it. Had no idea I wasn't supposed to post it in the first place.

Re: Ah, just caught it, thanks.

Okay, sorry for the tease every one. I was able to "break" the linked photo, out of fear of being fired. Sure those here can sum up what it was.

I must have missed this leak about the 40D. Is it the same specs that have been circulating around here the last couple of days? Any news about the AF system?

No specs were posted.

It was a photo of an invoice from a large American brick and mortar retailer listing the price as $1599.99 (with 28-135IS lens) and listing the in-stock date as Sept 2nd.

Don't worry this is just the kind of publicity that Canon wants and it is free.

Re: Says 28-135IS in the quoted text of reply.

So, lets get this straight.... The 40D (was it actually named that?) is going to sell on day one for $1600 with a 28-138mm IS lens... Where the current price of the 30D with the same lens is $1500... so, that means that the new camera is going to sell for just $100 then the current camera?

The big brick must be Best Buy. If that's when they plan to have it in stock then the release is likely in August. I don't need the lens as I already have the 28-135 IS. I'm rooting for the 5D AF....there's no reason why Canon can't offer it in the 40D......only because they don't want to. Having the 5D AF won't hurt 5D sales as the 5D is a FF camera.

I had a chance to hold a 5D and 300 2.8L today and man, I'm surprised by how light the combo felt especially after hearing about how the 300 2.8L was a heavy lens, etc. The guy who owned it said 'it may feel light now but wait until you use it for 30 minutes. Nah, it didn't feel heavy in the least. He was in a testy mood and wanted the combo back after that......I think he just didn't want to hear that it was a light combo

All I can tell you is what I saw in the pic. Now, whether it was an elaborate fake or not, I cannot say. But it did look pretty genuine to me.

UPC

I googled the UPC number listed in the pic that was posted and it does come up as a Canon UPC, though the item is not yet listed. That proves nothing of course, but figured I'd mention it.

Re: UPC

If you want to see the image it's online at Northlight.

What nobody has discussed is that the 40D will be current until 09/02/2010!!!!

So we have a temptative date for the 50D, wanna bet it will be a 16 Megapixel 1.6 crop camera with ISO 12,800?
