These are not up to my usual standards, but the 40D works fine. These are the tiny unprocessed jpegs that are embedded in the RAW file, shot in absolute crap today in Peoria, IL. 40D works ok in pretty heavy rain too, but I would not like to do this every day in the rain.

Tim, Are those with your 300? For small unretouched jpegs they look really sharp. Look forward to seeing the real thing.

Shooting in rain with no protection? Says a lot about the build quality, even if it doesn't stand up to the D300.
Any gripes?

EXIF data says 420mm, so yes 300 with a 1.4x

Smart man!

The jpegs are sharpened to a +2 in camera. What you set your picture style to, is what the jpeg shows up like on the rear LCD. I have the jpeg set to +2 so I can see if stuff is sharp. Even if you shoot just RAW like I do, that embedded jpeg has the picture style settings applied to it.

The rain sucked, I had the 100-400 on the mkIIN, lens not weather protected, camera is, and the 300 on the 40D, lens protected, camera is not. They both got pretty drenched, but everything still works.

Hi Tim,

One of the people at our only photo shop left told me that the 40D can withstand quite a bit of weather, looks like you backed that theory up. Great shots by the way, and thanks to all for sharing your photos, experience, and advice to us all.
