Here are some general test shots to help evaluate the camera's overall image quality, including the zoom range of the lens. Some pictures may be clicked to download the full size original image.


Even in shadow the colour depth is superb...


... while in bright sunlight it is even better.


The improved AF system copes well with fast-changing light conditions, and focuses accurately in low light. The band are called Lazy, from North Devon. Catch them if you get the chance, they're great. This was shot at the Amber Rooms in Exeter.

Page 3, 1st part is clearly taken from a Nikon review; Canon doesn't slow down while shooting 14 bit RAW, 40D shoots ONLY 14 bit RAW, @6.5 fps as it does in jpeg.

Canon cameras shoots always in 14bit, or always in 12bit mode, depending on the series, you can't switch between them.

At the moment the only Canon camera slowing while shooting in RAW is the 1000D, 1.5fps instead of 3.

My best regards ;-)
