I think it is pretty dumb of Canon to release a new camera when the nothern hemisphere (where the most sales are going to be made) is entering Autumn/Winter.

So all of a sudden Christmas doesn't count?

Introducing early gives Canon wiggle room if there's a manufacturing problem, something that would happen behind the scenes. This also makes things easier on retailers, who are busy enough during the holiday season to worry about having to launch a new product too.

Re: Canon and Nikon swapping build quality

1 step forward, 2 steps back?

This is just hearsay, but I recall reading somewhere that the difference was on the back-end. The 7D is dual processor and the T2i is single processor, so the difference is that there are half the data channels (i.e. the sensor outputs data more slowly). Technically that would be a "different" sensor, just not so much regarding IQ.

Funny how my s90 fits in my jeans pocket with the lens with the same specs, and costs $400 for the entire camera...

Funny how the S90 has a sensor 1/6 the size of an APS camera.

See, I can do that too.

What? Seriously? This made news?

DXO is just making an educated guess. "50D is overdue for update. Successor will probably be named 60D. Photokina in September. +Couple months of coding. November-ish seems reasonable."

I'm guessing they just quietly revise the page if a new model doesn't show up as expected.

Did anyone check how their projected schedule has changed in the past? That would help.
