Pros: Constructive quality, burst, speed (1/8000), ergonomics, low price of used, RAW very good.

Cons: Annoying noise after 800 ISO, high weight with L optics and battery grip, live view almost useless.

Opinion: I was looking for a DSLR to start "getting serious" and by chance I found a 40D at a very low price (100 euros). I fell in love with it as soon as I got familiar with the controls. Solid, handy, if in good hands does not regret newer sensors. Ample opportunity to customize its functions, combined with decent optics works very well, and with its burst of 6 fps can still say its even for photo hunting. Used for macro photos, the not-so-great live view is also useful, the zoom function of which helps for focus stacking, while for use in action it is practically useless. With the live view active, the battery life drops a lot. VERY workable RAW files, as long as you don't overdo the crop and don't go to very high ISO. In short, it is a machine largely sufficient for the neophyte and for the evolved amateur, despite age, yet another planet compared to the entry levels as series 1300D, 500D, 400D. The fact that there is automatic sensor cleaning is not to be overlooked.

Pros: Robustness, image quality (it's 12 years old), battery life, with good lenses and good light still noteworthy results

Cons: high iso

Opinion: Every now and then I see it and I still take it in my hand, then I mount a lens and I am amazed by the quality of the image and the pleasant colors it still offers. I'm fond of it, I thought I'd sell it, but when I saw the laughable value I said NO! With good optics and holding iso "low" the images it offers are still very good. He's only 10mpx and for his age it's a big virtue.

Pros: Keep in mind that it is a 2007 DSLR, time passes for everyone, however very valid machine

Cons: No one considered came out on the market 13 years ago

Opinion: My first DSLR; Great. I sold it to buy a Canon 7D but I wish I still had it. It performed well with the original lens with both Tamron and Sigma optics. Very valid colors and depth of field as of the rest of use for Canon . With a 17/50 mm f 2.8 I took many photos on the Riviera in the dark and at night very pleasant even today.

Pros: Robustness, elegance, battery life, honest price in the used, RAW file quality, all-rounder camera, 3.0' LCD screen.

Cons: Time passes for her too (it's from 2007), and such a camera, nowadays, would have many limitations. But, if used well, he still has a lot to give. We continue to trust her, because I still have a lot of satisfaction using her.

Opinion: It's a camera that still give me a lot of satisfaction. It's the camera I prefer when I photograph at the Venice carnival and when I pick up butterflies. If we combine it with an L-series optic scan like the Canon EF L IS USM 24-105 f/4 or a canvas like the Canon EF L IS USM 70-200 f/4, there is no history: it can compare even with cameras younger than her. I invite you not to keep it and not to sell it because, even if it is a "grandmother", she still knows what she is doing because she has an iron soul!!!

Pros: Robust and all-rounder. And Nowadays (2017) definitely the bargain price, for those approaching the world SLR think it's a smart choice.

Cons: It is now almost ancient and "Against" there are, but you have to consider it a nice granny ...

Opinion: This old lady accompanied me for many years and now I am going to pensionarla I decided to write some praise ... RNLA robustness makes sure an excellent companion for the trip, certainly not tropical conditions but just knowing it and store it in conseguenza.rnIn well if the flow in relative safety from countries know where to turn out if you happen some disavventura.rnNel meantime I also had a 5D mkII, definitely much better in the quality of the file, but in the end I re-exchanged with my nephew saw he does much better landscapes of my while I preferred a volley a bit 'faster and above the 1.6 factor that was missing in FF.rnQuindi, even today, as mentioned in "Pro", to approach the reflex would be to certainly a smarter choice that some low-cost ciofeche with plasticotto abbinato.rnSe I found several used at very attractive prices.
