They all look very nice, but I won't sell my new 40D for the Rebel, and I sure as heck can't afford those lenses!

I see that Canon has the specs for the new lenses on their site. There is a note that says they cannot be sold until they are approved but the FCC and the FDA. Okay, I can sort of understand the FCC, as they do contain electronics, but the FDA? Why would they be involved? Just curious.

So is this a lower priced competitor to the 40D? Is there a comparison?

no it's a replacement for the xti (400d).

But from what I've read it has some of the same options as the 40D. I am upgrading from the S1IS so I think that may be the best route for me.(price)
