It's £899 for the body only - that's direct from the horses mouth at the Canon press conference.

Excellent that's my Christmas to myself sorted ;o)
Anyone know with past experience of other releases, how long it takes before the price starts to drop or cashbacks start to appear?
OK I guess, £800 by Feb 2008, and Cash back mid 2009?
Apart from the 1st 3 months, no one sells them at retail price on the web.
£899? A bit expensive...:-(
pretty much the same as the 30D, or more?
I can't remember how much mine cost! (thank goodness!)
I would expect it to drop to @ £50 more than a D200.
Dear Father Christmas
I promise to be good and could I have ......
Oh and if it's not too much bother could you also have a look for one of those funny grey lenses too.
Quote: £899? A bit expensive...:-(
Well compared to tthe D200 RRP of £1,099 its a bargin. I would expect the two to drift together in price once the rush dies down. (I mean the D200 goes for just over £800 now.) Canon used to start at about £1,100 if I remember correctly for this type of camera. Mind you £550 for a 30D ......
My penny worth:
The Nikon D200 is a semi-pro camera. The 40D is being lauched to take part of the market sector. Those with Nikon glass are unlikely to upgrade. Its probabaly targeting Canon 10D, 20D, 350D, and 400D users.
Its also good news that Camera Body prices continue to fall.
The 30D and D200 are in the same market segment, this is just an update to the 30D. Logicaly it is targeting at Canon users and those who do not have a stash of Nikon etc lenses. Existing Nikon users should just get a Nikon or Fuji

Considering the pro/semi pro nature of the 40D's predecessors ie D30/60/10D/20/30 I would say it was the other way around
£899 seems a bargain to me considering the 10D weighed in at around £1500, the 20D £1200 and if I remember correctly the 30D started life with a list price of £1100
The D30 started life at over 2 grand. Mind you it was the first digital SLR much under 5 grand IIRC so a bargan ib its day. I could let you have mine cheep at £1500 if you like!!!
what do you mean NO
For those interested: 40D video here
Looks like a monster, but now its a reality its onto the rumour mill for the 450D - 500D , taking in many of the features of the 40D such as live view, better processing etc. But probably not the 3" screen if they are going to keep the body smaller than the 40D
Building on the success of the 400D and at a pricepoint lower than the large 40D brick, it would be a winner.
Size & weight look good to me, not brick like at all! . Think it's around the same size as my 20D which feels just right in the hand. I've tried out a friends 400D & it felt too small & fiddly for me.
Think it might be my Christmas pressie to myself this year & then I'll sell the 20D.
