    While the 40D seems like a good camera at its price point, it is (like
    the 30D compared to the D200) not in the same class as the Nikon D300,
    in any area. This means that the new 5D is likely to feature a much
    higher spec in most areas than the 5D which is really a glorified 30D
    with a FF sensor. The D80 Nikon is a robust (albeit plastic bodied)
    DSLR, way beyond the quality of the Canon 400XTi which is now the next
    step down from Canon's 40D. So Canon ideally needs something to fill
    the gap between the 40D and the 5D or whatever its successor ends up
    being. A truly weather-sealed, sub-FF camera with a solid set of
    specifications. A $2000 price point would be about right.

    You can say Nikon has nothing to match Canon's 1DsMkIII, but Canon not
    having a D300 equivalent is (IMO) a greater oversite than Nikon not
    having a 21 megapixel FF pro model.
