    - Higher ISO + 3 more MP = fail :ugh: (apparently Canon never got the memo that the MP war is over)
    - Then it has a higher res screen (whoopie, it's have the same shitty low res menues)
    - 9 point failure AF (but it looks like it has an additional AF mode)
    - Contrast detection AF in Live View (with face detection! Cool, it's an Elph)
    - Same crappy unintelligent battery
    - No apparent weather sealing
    - But it does have HDMI (wow, for all 7 people that give a shit)

    Shit. This is still barely an upgrade from my old 20D. Canon is just turning into a joke.
     
  6. Seriously, fuck the 50D and give us the 5D Mk II

    I'm starting to think this is bullshit.

    The 40D has only been in market for a year, and they are talking about a 50D already with no sign of a 5D? Supplies of the 40D are still ample, while the 5D inventory is dwindling worldwide...

    Something doesn't smell right at all.

    i still dont beleive it. i have a hard time beleiving that the 40d would be replaced only after a year, as well as canon having inbody IS.

    You sure this wasn't on the official Nikon China site??

    Cuz this is exactly what I would do if I wanted to seriously piss you Canon guys off.


    I'd be shocked out of my mind if this was real.

    Everyone is saying the in-body IS thing was actually a translation error. The page was translated via Google, so that's probably the case.

    Personally, I'm thinking this is either a hoax, or it's a decoy by Canon to keep attention away from a potential 5DII launch, or maybe it's actually 5DII specs and the 1.6x crop is a translation error or mistake.

    At least I'm hoping one of those is the case because if they are going to release a 50D only 1 year after the 40D without doing anything about the 5D then Canon can suck my cock. :ugh:

    Considering there weren't huge leaps from 20D to 30D, from 30D to 40D I don't think this is completely out of realm of being real. :dunno:

    Rumors about the D700 came out and people didn't think it was true, until the final peoduct was damn near exactly what the rumors said it would be. Rumor or not, looks "legit" for now. :dunno:
