What exactly does "available" mean? ;) In Japan? USA? Europe? Worldwide? Can we learn anything from past rollouts?

I remember it took quite long that the 5DMkII was really available. But maybe Canon calculated the demand of the market better for the 60D (not that easy for the first plastic-xxD with articulating screen ;)).

Seriously, you don't really think they don't calculate that? They always do, the same like Apple does. It's all marketing. They know exactly what they are doing. Just think about Apple and their "shortages" with delivery and Steve Jobs announcing each and every time they sell something new, how fast it is not availlable anymore because their product is so damn awesome.....

That's true, really interesting that 6 days before announcement there still are absolutely no specs availlable. All we have heared till now was pure speculation.

Wondering if I should unload the 50D now in order to get a better price...which would mean waiting a month until I can get one of these babies. At least HK usually gets camera bodies earlier than the rest of the world...

50D was announced on August the 26th of 2008 (Please note the date  :P) and was delivered to the stores on October the 6th in the USA. Early November was fully available in the average european store.

I don't think there's gonna be much supply problem with this camera. 5DMkII was a different case, because production is WAY lower. If you look for the highest end, problems are much worse. Just try to buy a nikon D3s  ::)

This kind of camera sell like hotcakes, so production has higher volumes, and therefore has normally no major shortages. Specially if they use 550D/7D technology on this one which is likely.

You're probably right. :)
I don't care that much about when the cam is available but I'm really interested in the official announcement! :)

Yeah Spec's will make or break it, but i'm not that hopeful.
I reckon from rumours so far:
  • 60D for about £1000 RRP - :-(
  • APS-c with same 100-12800 ISO and 18 MPx.
  • 9 cross type AF
  • 4 fps as 7D has 8FPS :-(
  • Plastic body - not personally too bothered but not cool to say it's plastic.
  • HD video as 7D with DIGIC 4
  • 3" flip screen
So whats potentially good over the 550D - more AF points and a flip screen - saves me lying down for a shot and using manual focus quite so often.

I hope its not true but I expect such a spec is designed to push us frustratedly into buying a 7D mk1.

Canon 60D, 24-105, 50 F1.8. 430EX II.
Sigma 10-20, 70 F2.8, 70-300. Studio.
Giotto tripod, Hoya filters.

It will have at least 6 fps, given that the 50D does.

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.

I won't be even considering one now until next spring...hopefully by which time the prices have decreased to an acceptable level. If they had released it early spring, I would have taken the hit and probably bought it full/introductory price.

Just my thought.

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.

When was the last time someone bought you an £800 camera for Xmas? Or for that matter waited for Xmas to buy yourself an £800 camera?

Your 2nd statement makes no sense, spring is after the festive season.
