It’s all true except for one minor detail. The highly anticipated DSLR for prosumers is here, sort of. It looks like the September 20 release might be a little off. The EOS 40D is scheduled for an early September delivery. The body alone is $1,299 while a kit version with Canon’s EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM zoom lens will cost you $1,499.
