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.

Several forum posters are alleging the release of the Nikon D3 and D300 is imminent.
Just spoke with a relation of mine at one of Europe’s major Nikon distributors and D300 is coming very soon (she mentioned end of this month) with the specifications as already mentioned in Chasseur d’Images, 12Mp & D2X AF system.
Out of respect for my source I can’t mention any names or more specifications.
Late August is now pretty busy – Pentax European press conference, 23rd; Canon Autumn Collection launch London, 21st; Nikon London launch, 24th. All announced, press contacted, RSVPs done etc.
I just got a Nikon Free prize draw competition leaflet, to be drawn on 31st October for which the prize is your “ultimate Nikon Digital SLR camera” a “D2Xs or equivalent”.
World Athletics Championships begin on the 25th August… in Nikon’s home country… with Nikon as an offical sponsor. My understanding is that Nikon have a history of launching high profile products at major sporting events, instead of at photographic exhibitions.
The UK press conference scheduled for Friday August 24th is the day before the IAAF
In case you haven’t figured it out yet, the DPReview.com forums is a major source of the rumors that we see. Part of the reason is because the forums are so active. You can view the Nikon threads page here.
Everybody and their brother is reporting on these latest images that look like true studio shots of the Canon 40D that originated over at slrclub. They’re no longer up over there, but it looks like there’s a few million of these floating around on the web now.
Keep up with the latest developments on the Canon 40D on this page!

Somehow I missed this:
As of December 2006, Nikon had a 47% share of the Japanese DSLR market compared to Canon’s 35%.
