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.

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].

flip screen on an SLR? aside from make the camera bigger and heavier what good is that? its an SLR!!!

? will it have an internal flash transmitter? that would be great. rather than using my Opus hot shoe. does the T2i have that?

I'm looking to buy a T2i for me, and maybe upgrade the 40D at my work to a 7D... but if the 60D makes any sense i may go that route instead, but by the sounds of it this is just a good reason to push the price of the T2i down some :)

This is really disappointing.  Have to agree with most of the comments.  Gimmicks instead of improvements over the previous generations (40D, 50D).  Looks like I will wait - no need for the 60D if that is really what it will be.

No surprises here. This was always going to be a camera built to a price point. A step up from the Rebel but not enough to undercut the 7D. Bigger surprise is that anyone thought it would be otherwise.

I'm on my way back from the Cartier-Bresson exhibit in Chicago. Great reminder that great pictures don't have to be grain-free and tack sharp.

Heck he didn't even bother to spot his prints.

muteteh, many thanks for the link. I've been looking for an at-a-glance timeline like that for a while. It was most enlightening. I wonder what this year's EF-S will be?

Also, the Canon museum is a site that I easily forget exists. :P

cdpage, T2i does not have internal flash commander. Only 7D for now.

The greedy part of me wishes the 60D really just has gimmicks added, specifically flipscreen and flash commander. Then Canon will lose enthusiast sales and will drop their prices to get volume. Perfect for vultures. ;)
