Canon has announced a new digital SLR that puts a 15.06 million image pixel CMOS sensor, DIGIC IV processor and 3 inch (diagonal), 920,000 dot rear LCD into the body of an EOS 40D, then mixes in a variety of image enhancement and minor functionality changes. Called the EOS 50D, the main attraction of the evolutionary model will be its new sensor, which is promised to offer noticeably better quality at upper ISO settings in addition to a 50% bump in the number of pixels. Alongside the new camera, Canon has announced an all-purpose zoom, the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS.
