will anybody actually believe that it is a NEW sensor if it does have 18mp? An incremental upgrade isn't an option after 2.5 years. There also has to be some separation between the 650/700 d and the newer lines.

No we'll still be waiting for the 7d mk2, and wondering will it match the latest Nikon with 24 giga-pixels, Sony will still be #3 out of the big 3

check the canon website..... the 650d is removed but they retain the older 600d......  I wonder why (sarcasm!!)

The biggest laugh in all of this is I just checked my local canon website and the line up has removed the 650d but kept the 600d..... obviously this is just a ploy to keep the prices inflated with the "new" model.

So the 650D is replaced within 10 months??? That is a fast turnover even for a rebel!!!!

personally I wouldn't be buying a rebel/xxxD however when you compare these Specs to the Competition they just seem so dated. new users won't always consider how good a camera is they look at the price and the headline specs, then make their decision, if they do investigate further and get as far as DXOMARK then we all know that both nikon cameras and lenses seem to get better scores on that site than their canon counterparts. Entry level cameras should be about getting new users using Canon.... not driving them towards the competition.
(Just in case anyone is wondering I'll still stick with Canon......... till the next round of disappointment anyway!!)

If I was going into a shop to buy my first DSLR not really knowing too much about cameras I don't think I would buy Canon, I would be looking at the Nikons far more seriously. For the entry level users Headline specs  (megapixels in particular) is what counts plus the Nikon D3200 has already settled into its  lower price point. Also hasn't it gone very quiet about a 70D announcement????

I am in exactly the same situation wondering whether or not to go full frame, my decision has been to go with lenses this year and then in a year or so get the body, because the lenses are used on both FF and aps-c - you can't loose. Then if an extraordinary aps-c option comes out in the time frame I haven't put all my eggs into one basket so to speak  and have the option of either. Lens choice I leave to you.

Nikon would Just love the 7D mk 2 to be 3k, would make the d400 pretty easy to sell ;D (and yes I am a Canon user, but also a realist!!!!!!!)

The way I would look at this would be...... are you being paid for the photographs you take or are they just for yourself, friends,  family maybe the local high school? if you are being paid maybe it's worth considering an upgrade if not then the 60D will be more than enough, apart from the frame rate and auto focus, they have the same M.P. and sensor and will produce a quality shot. get a better lens  with more range, the 70-200's are great for this sort of thing, you bought the 60D for a reason what were those reasons?

IMHO it depends what you have already, and what you like taking photos of. I would assume if you have a 550d you would have at least a kit lens (probably even an 18-55) therefore I would go for a lens outside of the range you have already..... and be the only one so far to say the 85mm. A great portrait lens even on aps-c. If you have no lens at all I personally would split the money and buy a cheap 50mm 1.8 and a standard zoom (18-55????)
