|LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., August 20, 2007 – The new 21.1-megapixel, full-frame Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III Digital SLR* camera brings the power of Canon U.S.A., Inc.’s professional imaging excellence and innovation into sharper focus than ever before. While Canon’s EOS-1D series has dominated the 35mm-based professional Digital SLR market for the past six years, the new EOS-1Ds Mark III Digital SLR takes Canon’s pro-digital prowess into and the realm of high-fashion and commercial photo studios where bulkier, medium-format cameras previously reigned.The Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III’s compact, lighter-weight magnesium alloy body is rugged and versatile enough to take out of the studio and into the field. The camera’s fast, five-frame-per-second (fps) shooting rate for bursts of up to 56 Large/Fine (21-megapixel) JPEGS or 12 RAW images is unmatched in its class, making it the ideal instrument for capturing the fluid motion and free-flowing lines of location-based fashion photography as well as a wide range of other professional photographic applications.The Canon EOS-1Ds Mark III professional digital single lens reflex camera is scheduled to begin shipping in November and will have an estimated selling price of $7,999† (the same price as its predecessor, the 16.7 megapixel EOS-1Ds Mark II).

The new 40d is like a 1D mkIII lite…… that’s all I can Say…
Camera is of same built quality as 30d
This is the same guy that told us prior to PMA that there would be no 40D showing at it. Before the 1D Mk III announcement he said:
10mp 10fps 1.3 crop – it’s coming….
. . . he was dead on.
So, look for a 1D Mk III “lite” in the form of the Canon 40D on the store shelves soon.

Keep up to date on the Canon 40D here.
UPDATE 8/15/07: I emailed the editor of Shutterbug yesterday re: this ad. He says to regard it as bogus attribution and that “all our production team are women.” The significance in that factoid is that the original poster of the ad (on the POTN forums mentioned above) said that his “man” at Shutterbug emailed the image to him. . . . Your guess is as good as mine, but I thought I’d just pass along the info.

Looks like the pricing and availability of the Canon 40D is out in the open now. If you look at the Best Buy inventory report above, it shows the Canon 40D “in-stock” on September 2, 2007. If that’s the price card for the 40D, the you’re looking at a whoppin’ $1600 for the new camera, presumably with a kit lens.
Also on Gizmodo.
Looks like it started on (where else) DPReview.com.
After digging in the forum a bit, it appears that camera includes the Canon EF 28-135 IS lens.
