    Havent used it yet... but it looks great for a consumer DSLR... I have the 10D, so I know I won't buy it... but it looks pretty nice if you dont require a magnesium aloy insides :) Or a few other features... I have a rebel film camera... and the feel should be similar... and it isnt too bad... just extremely light after using the 10D... but heavy cameras are cool.

    I love Canons. I have a Canon EOS Rebel 2000 as well as the new digital S400. Great pics. I like heavier cameras too but you just can't beat this price. Any problems with your 10D? Like it?

    the photos and specs have been on canon's offical website for nearly 2 weeks now - http://www.canoneos.com/digitalrebel/index.html

    there are reviews of it already on www.dpreview.com and www.iphotoforum.com

    my thoughts? great for the photography community, still a rebel, which i can't stand

    biggest downfaults from the userend, there is no 2nd command dial wheel for your right thumb... and this has always been the downfault of the rebel line of camera's. i know, i shot a rebel x for 6+ years before upgrading to an eos a2 and now have a 10d in my bag as well. same reason when people ask me to suggest an entry level slr i still suggest a used eos elan II over any of the rebel line

    who's gonna buy it? those users who dont wanna shell out 1500 for a 10d plus glass... its those users who feel they need a wider lense selection then any of the consumer digital camera market can offer and who are frustrated to death w/ shutter lag
