Canon’s Peculiar Kit Options for the 40D

December 30, 2007

Canon EOS 40D dSLR Camera

So the new Canon EOS 40D only comes in two ways:

  1. Canon EOS 40D (body only, at Amazon or B&H Photo)
  2. 40D dSLR with the EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Lens (at Amazon or B&H Photo)

You may note that the neither the original EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM, EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM (Amazon, B&H Photo), nor the new EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens (Amazon, B&H Photo) are offered as part of a kit package like the 20D or 30D did. Hmmm, maybe Canon will introduce a new EF-S lens or two at PMA. Will Canon finally have an 18-200mm IS to compete with Nikon? At a minimum they need something in the 18-135mm range. We shall see in one month……
