at least it's not a joke like the 60D; it looks likes a real XXD bodycan you name those apparent differences? i cant tell. im serious. in my eyes, it actually looks somewhat small
The dimensions do appear more like a 50D than a 60D, the new camera is definitely taller, at least with respect to width, than the 60D, and the shoulder bearing the function dial is flatter, like the 50D. It is of course speculation, but this could be the return the the more rugged semi-pro body, although if it was, you would think the package would list that as a feature. Then again, the original 50D box didn't list magnesium frame as a feature either.
