An article about september 40D announcement

I found it on Chasseur d' Images site (which is a magazine as well). It doesn't say anything about specs, just that 40D and Nikon D300 are going to be announced in september.

There are currently many rumoured specs on various sites and forums. All of them are pretty much the same, some differentiate only by mpix count, everything else seems to be the same (5 fps, no weather sealing, same body and LCD...). I just hope that VF is going to be bigger.

Without at least one of the following features, I think it's going to have a hard time competing with Nikon D300, besides that they might loose a small percentage to Pentax k10d:
-weather sealing (D300 will have it, k10D has it)
-larger VF (D300 will have it, k10d has it)
-image stabilisation (that won't happen, but k10d has it)
