Hum, scaleusa? Did I find some irony in there?
Kyle, I like a monochrome display like on 60D, 7D, etc, because they save energy. When you're traveling without electricity around this is very beneficial. I don't care about WB because I'm using RAW.
EDIT: I mean an additional monochrome LCD.
Ah, I see. You're talking about the top LCD. Here I was thinking you were talking about the rear LCD. I can't see Canon ever stripping that from cameras above the Rebel series, so I think your wish will be granted. Although they have surprized people before (see plastic 60D). Personally, I like the handling of the 60D (I don't owe one, but have played with them multiple times when I frequent Micro Center). The 7D is too big and heavy in my opinion for my use. The Rebel series is a bit on the small side in my hand (although I do love my Rebel XT). The 60D combines the advantages of the 'professional' button layout up top with the medium size of its ancestors (40D, 50D, et al), and the light weight of the Rebel series. Perfect for someone like me, who loves photography and will never make a career out of it.
Now if I got to pick the specs for a camera I would say:
60D-like body (don't care if it has rotating screen or not)
100-6400 ISO (higher ISOs reserved for the high-end cameras)
That way there are still advantages to the 7D (mag body, MP, 12800 ISO, better/more AF), and this wouldn't cannibalize sales too much. Additionally, it would cause more people to jump on the FF format and increase lens sales (more expensive FF lenses, not the cheap 18-55, 55-250, etc). Although, you could bet that some people would grab a 75-300mm III for their tele and expect professional results.
