Disappointing cos I was hoping it was the 7D or 5D MkII.

However, 40D looks as good as it can get, esp with 10mp and 6.5fps. I will definitely buy this model if I'm upgrading from a EOS xx0D or a pns.

I don't really care for the live view and I wonder if you can disable the Digic III's face recognition? That'll really brighten parts which I might choose not to do so.

Logic tells me the face recognition will only work in scene modes, im sure it can be disabled, kinda strange if it can't.

As for live view, it'll surely make macro and bird shooting a lot better due to lack of mirror flip and extra manification for MF.
