I just joined this forum to get some good reasoned thinking.

But unlike the DP Review forum it seems as though this is a place to vent frustrations. Lots of expectations. No firm specs yet. Definitely no reviews. Yet people are ready to leap into the arms of Sony (plenty of ripping of their cameras BTW from those expecting more of Sony...so it goes!) and Nikon.

I'll stay tuned in case there are some good and reasoned analyses posted. In the meantime...vent away.

And I do appreciate the website...Lots of good balanced info here.

I know the flipscreen is usefull (I shoot macro too) but the hell it's the only feature it has more than the 550D!!!!!!!
What a .... is this?!
It is a year older than the next in lineup (7D) and doesn't even have its 12800 ISO!!! And less fps than the 50D This is total crap!!!

The good news is: it will be cheap.
It needs to be or it will be in a whole world of hurt with those specs.
If it need to be, that it will be. When was the last time that you saw Canon position and price something poorly?

I guess $200 more than 550D.

$200 more than the 550D is too expensive, the Nikon D7000 will be right about that price and it's specs are far superior.

I think Nikon will have a big relief. 60D will give them some breathing room, so D7000 don't need to be priced too aggressively. After all, Nikon is not in the business of killing Canon, it's in the business of making profit.

Well, I was planning on getting a D700 until I found out the body was supposed to cost $1200.  I was thinking more along the lines of $900.  I've decided to check around, and the 60D and A55 are my top two alternatives.

Well, look on the bright side: if 60D is truly a marketplace dud, it will see quick discounts and/or the 70D will be introduced that much earlier. The xxD series was on a 12-18 month release cycle before the 50D after all.

About what I was expecting except I was still holding out hope for CF.    Bummer.    But it is still a full 3" high quality LCD, despite being articulated.

For those giving up on Canon innovation... there is that hybrid camera that may appear for Photokina.   But if it is priced at a "flagship" level it will be irrelevant to the under 1.5k USD discussion. 

http://www.canonrumors.com/category/photography/canon-hybrid/

It would appear that other camera makers are advancing in value (more features at the same price point) and innovation, while XXD is relatively stagnant.   It had better at least be priced right.

11 min video
Sounds unrealistic because 5D, 7D and 550D can all record 30min.
...or does Canon set up the data rate so that the 60D will reach the 4GB limit after 11min?

This was pretty much predictable.  After Canon came out with the 7d to match the D300, any XXD camera had to be a lower end camera to match the D90 series.  Expect the price to be $100 lower than the D95.  I'm kinda suprised that they came out with it at all, they seemed to have delayed for Nikon and Sony to show their hand.

Fortunately my 40D continues to work well for my needs. !0 mp is large enough for magazine ads. And seeing as I don't "motor drive" the camera I've lots of shutter life left.

As I've said all along, cameras are just tools. So I'll look at the new Nikon, Pentax and Sony cameras. The problem with Pentax and Sony is that they don't have tilt & shift lenses, but the Nikon PC-E Micro NIKKOR 85mm f/2.8D is a better lens, in many ways, than Canon TS-E 90 f2.8.

Just have to wait and see how things shake out, but if I do switch I will miss my EF-S 10-22 f3.5-4.5.

The Nikon D90 replacement, the D7000, will destroy this camera with it's:
- 100% viewfinder
- dual memory cards
- 6-8fps
- 39 AF points
- mag body
- 25600 ISO

What is canon smoking?

Couldn't agree more assuming they are in the same price range.

Do you have links that show this? I am intrigued and most surprised.

I agree Sony is very much lacking in their lens department, not just the tilt-shift stuff.

Would be great if they make IQ with kit lens atleast better than D90. I had bought 50D, repenting now.

Well, the photo above shows the EF-S 18-135. but over the past decade Canon has release roughly a new kit lens a year, so I think there's place for hope.

I'm not questioning the claim, but mind listing off a brief timeline? I'm kind of curious about the kit lens history.

Go to http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/Canon_new_lenses.html and role down to the big lenses table. Note about half those kit lenses are versions of the EF-S 18-55mm [I/II, USM, IS].
