... and why not?

We've NOT seen the whole specs yet, but remember the competitions were @ 10Mpixels for more than a year before this 40D announcement. Just by enlarging the sensor this time around from 1.5x to 1.25x crop the competitions have gained 4 additional megapixels, and @ 1.25x unlike a full-frame it still allows for in-body IS!
This is going to be an interesting Christmas season no doubt!
-> Let see what Nikon, Pentax, and Sony can cook up with this new sensor

I agree! I for one hope it catches on. I much prefer the push towards larger sensors. They are always going to provide better quality - so having other manufacterers besides canon with larger than aps-c sensors is a step in the right direction in my book. Of course, this causes other problems - namely some manufacterers putting all their lens efforts into lenses designed for aps-c sized sensors now have to go to a 2-prong approach again. Definitely should be a very interesting Christmas season!

The key here to look forward for is the 14_bit conversion - Seems like Canon is set to push for best IQ and not highest resolution

-> The pricing is also quite interesting (@$1299): They got to be good and inexpensive to compete!
