How can it be that they suddenly make plastic sh... on an eos xx ??I can't believe this either.
Don't get me wrong, I believe it, but I don't appreciate it.

Could you imagine an S90 w/ an aps-c sensor? Not quite an evil w/ changeable lenses, just an s90 w/ a larger sensor. That would be cool. Just to clarify, I haven't heard anything about that...this is just me dreaming hereThat would really be cool. But I quess,an APS-C sized sensor would require a larger lens...
Resizing a 18MP image to 10 MP using a decent algorithm is not very much different to using a 10MP sensor with larger pixels in terms of signal processing. After all it's always about integrating photon impact over time and position - it doesn't matter so much if it's done in the hard or the software.This may be right for DSLRs with big enough pixels. For point'n'shoots I personally think it's wrong. As far as "dynamik range" is concerned, the photogate of the pixel is "full" when a certain amount of photons are collected. The bigger the pixel, the higher the capacity of the photogate, the higher the dynamik range.
18mp (Exact same as the 7D & T2i)Exact the same as 7D/550D? Wasn't there a difference between these two sensors? I remember having read this somewhere...
If they don't release a new FF camera by the time I actually need a camera, I am thinking of just picking up a 40D as a cheap way to hold me over until a camera I really want comes out. Like you, I think it handles noise very nicely, and you can get them really cheap now.You're not really saying that a 40D offers better image quality at lets say 3000x2000 px than a 7D, are you?
@ release date, why are there alyways these funny dates (like August 11.), who believes that? By now it should be obvious for everyone that they announce the new cameras at photokina.What is so funny about Augst 11th?
Where ever it is and whatever it is I hope it is FULL FRAME not aps-cWhy this? APS-C equates to the standard 35 mm film-look... A full frame is even bigger.
I'd like to see some more revolutionary changes though, particularly in sensor performance, video function, and even the lens department.I'd like that too. Concerning the sensor, the only way to get better image quality is: bigger sensors and less pixels.
They won't press canon for size, much. (well maybe a smaller FF body with HD EVF wouldnt hurt)I'm sure a smaller FF body (Rebel-sized?!) with a "conventional" mirror-viewfinder wouldn't hurt either.
Touchscreen to. Use it if you like... if you don't like it buttons are still there. Like on Panasonic G2. It adds some cool and useful new features, thats for sure. Costs virtually nothing to implement in hardware.A touchscreen should be a lot more expensive to build. Besides, I think, it would be thicker (not good for a flip screen). And: I like buttons. I want to feel the button, this gives a more secure and faster handling.
