Why no 60D, I wonder?

I was hoping for the release of the 60D too, but no sign of it yet. Perhaps it'll be released in the upcoming days?

Aside from that, the T2i looks fairly decent with 18MP and an ISO of 6400.

I'm still looking to purchase the 50D/7D later this year.

The T2i covers most of the specs the 60D would of had, Canon Maybe dumping 50D upgrade as I bet they have a bunch in stock, If I was betting. Chase get the 7D with all the night shots you do, But get glass first you will need it with 7D. Thats an opinion.

I'm still trying to figure out why the 40d cost more than the 50d.

Richard,

Definitely. I hope to pick up atleast one L lens before buying a new body. Maybe by the time I save up enough for the 7D, the price will drop a little.

The 50D is now $930 at Amazon, is that the same price as a month ago or has that price come down?

The t2i has some nice features, including metering taken from the 7D. I wonder what "space" a 60D could fill between the t2i at $900 and the 7D at $1700. As the low end gets better and better it is harder to find a middle ground for a camera above it and below the top end.

I hate reading technical stuff. My eyes start to glaze over, but should the noised level at higher ISOs (not even the high, talking 1600 here) be considerably betterthan my XTi?

Yeah if its close to the 7D it will blow the XTi and 50D out of the water.

the one thing that does irk me a little about my 5D Mk II is the slow 3.9 fps. It'd have to have a lot more irks for me to ever give it a Fail though

Actually, I now realize, fps is one of the differentiators between xD, xxD, and xxxD bodies. So, yes, fps on an xxxD body "never gets better" and probably won't for a long time.

18 MP on a crop sensor? I'd be curious to see what ISO 6400 looks like!

Well, if you consider it is ALMOST as fast as the 5d2 which is 3.9...

That is the ultimate FAIL specification of what is an excellent camera.

So what?

There are cameras that go faster and cameras that go slower.

So what?

If the 60D comes out at 3.7 then you will have a legitimate complaint.

It will look like crap if you underexpose it just like all cameras. other wise look for the review to come out.
Look at dpreview.com EOS 550D/ Rebel T2i Samples and there is one shot at 6400 ISO.

The sensor in the T2i is reportedly not identical (but very similar) to the sensor of the 7D. DPR has this 7D studio shot at ISO 6400:

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/Cano...ISO%206400.JPG

As far as the frame rate, I agree that it's one of the things that makes Canon's Rebels the Rebels, and if it was upgraded, would affect the placement of the X0D line. Better things to worry about...

The only times I can remember a Rebel not being fast enough for what I needed was when my 300D was getting old. I learned a long time ago not to shoot in burst mode. For one reaoson, I might get ten shots of an oncoming train, but none of them would have the train exactly where I wanted. A few times with the 300D when shooting models, I could have used a faster burst mode, but I learned to shoot with what I had.

Joe, I thought the same the way you did until I got the 40D. It was just like when I thought I didn't need glasses...until I got glasses. Or went from dial up to cable. Or standard def TV to HDTV.

Once you have that capability, it would suck to lose it...

I do get that. I'd love to have had the 60D announced and to be able to get it. Right now, I can't justify shelling out the money for the 7D to myself, much less my wife.

I saw someone on another forum say the video with the T2i will be manual exposure and will have an external mike jack! Sweet!
