EOS 40D compared to other Canon SLRs

Canon EOS 7D vs Other Canon SLRs

The table below compares the Canon 7D with the 50D and the full-frame 5D Mark II. What we've done below is presented something of a hybrid comparison between these three models. A red cell means that a given camera performs below the other two, a green cell means that it performs better than the other two, and a yellow cell means it falls between the other two. In cases where two cameras share a superior capability, both cells will be colored green.
