    I doubt I'd ever use video functions and would MUCH rather have more FPS... I'm just more hopeful for the 60d or whatever is next in that lineup :x:

    why would they release an entry-level camera that's better than their consumer line? 60D coming soon?

    I'm just pissed that i dropped the dough on this thing, just as they a) come out with a better one (nearly) for cheaper, which b) signifies a big change for the line that i just purchased. :hs:

    no shit... they'd probably sell a lot more rebels if they'd package a better lens with it. course the rebels are usually sold to chumps that don't know shit about what they're buying, and only know that they want a dslr... like me a few years ago. :hsugh:

    I'm pretty sure they changed it when the XS/XSi came out, and the new one is much better

    that's what I'm waiting on before I upgrade to anything. the 50d seemed like too much of a last-minute scramble for the d300 market.

    Well I am holding for this rumor to prove true. This will be my next camera if it comes to fruition

    Fall 2009
    Just received some information about the replacement of the 50D.

    The camera is to be launched in the fall of 2009 and on sale for Christmas.

    You can expect it to be branded “7D” the source says. The “xxD” moniker is going away. There is a perceived confusion with customers between Canon and Nikon model numbers. I actually hear people saying model numbers wrong all the time.

    Specs:

    15.1mp (apparently it will be the same sensor with some internal upgrades)
    DIGIC V (DIGIC IV a stopover to a big advancement in processing)
    New 13 Point AF
    1080p Movie Mode
    8fps
    3″ VGA LCD
    98% VF
    New Battery
    Weathersealing
    Ergonomic Upgrades
    1x Compact Flash and 1x Secure Digital Slots
    Some might say “why would Canon put DIGIC V in the 7D and not 5D2?”. Remember Canon has outspecced xxD cameras with Rebels in the past. People also scoffed at the 21mp notion of the 5D2 with the 1Ds3 around. You’re only as good as your latest camera I guess.

    it's a Rebel, of course it will.

    but 15MP and HD video are freaking awesome.
