The 600D specs sound reasonable to me... I for one expected Canon to go back to a 1,5yr cycle for the xxxD series. But IF a 600D is released this spring, it will probably be only a very slightly upgraded 550D as reported in this rumor.

The thing I'm not believing is the 12MP sensor of the 1100D although I would appreciate it. However, I don't believe in a 1100D at all ;).

But we'll see... "Time will tell. Sooner or later, time will tell." ;)

As for new models, a 600D with an articulated screen would make the 60D harder to sell, but would give Canon one unique feature in this segment ...

not really unique (Panasonic G2).

I don't know, I'm iffy about this. There's already a lot of product identity confusion, and products being too similar at too close a price point, and these updates would make things worse (specifically the 600D, I'm fine with the 1100D).

The 60D hasn't been selling very well as it is, and adding an articulating screen to the 550D would make it even worse. This is a guess, but I'd wage that more people choose the 60D rather than 550D over the articulating screen than say...wireless flash control.

Different market segment, Lumix G2 is not an SLR.

Where would the new sensor come from? Canon would not make one just for this 1100 camera.
Canon 60D, 24-105, 50 F1.8. 430EX II.
Sigma 10-20, 70 F2.8, 70-300. Studio.
Giotto tripod, Hoya filters.

Really?  Check out the PowerShot lineup some time.  One year ago this month (Jan 2010), they launched 4 PowerShot models and they currently range in price from $80-110 at B&H.  Just one month later (Feb 2010), they launched 4 more PowerShot models.

As far as I now they did so for the 1000D.

Two wrongs don't make a right! Every time I pass by the P&S section in Futureshop or something I get scared off. So many similar products with the most minute of differences, we don't need that in the DSLR world.

Aha, I like yours too! I'm wrapping up my neuroscience/business degree, how about yourself?

So true - but at least picking the PowerShot S95 was straightforward for me - I wanted the biggest sensor I could get in a pocketable form factor, along with RAW shooting.  That pretty much narrowed it to a selection of one.

How about a revised 450D sensor.  Take the basic layout and tweak the sensel design with a few modern goodies.  The 450D is 12mp and a slight tweak on it's sensor in a tiny (relatively) form factor may make for a very compelling product especially if the pricing was right.  Perfect for the casual photo with a lightweight prime on it.. especially a nifty fifty version of a 30/35mm prime (please dear lord, just do this Canon, PLEASE).

didn't the old Nikon D5000 had that long time ago?

G2 is in another segment, and try shooting with that thing above ISO800  :-[
the A55 has one, so Canon is just following, they need one with those LCD screen in that segment/size/price point.
