Looks funny with the 40mm lens


We NEED to see it on a 1DX.  8)

Blasphemy!

Just think of it as a functional body cap. 8)

Lol that's it, 2 in 1 lens/body cap.

I think it looks COOL! Chunky yet compact.  8)  And yes, it's by far the best bodycap on the planet.

WOW!  Thanks for that video.  The more I learn about this camera, the more I want it.  The price seems to be reflecting more about the features than the model line.  Yah, it's a Rebel, but it seems to do about everything a 60D can do.

Have goals, and save, save, save.

What would be interesting to find out is how the sensor performs relative to the old 18MP sensor.  Canon has been very silent about the fact that the sensor is new, aside from the fact that it now incorporates phase detect AF capability.  Either Canon doesn't want to draw any attention to the fact that the IQ has not been improved, or Canon doesn't want to draw any attention to IQ improvements for fear of impacting 60D and 7D sales.

That was kind of my point.  Consumers wont spend this much on new body.  They will either go with the one that's cheaper (and quite capable I might add) or realize that a consumer model is not what they need and jump right to the semi-pro models.

I don't like the price point though.  :(.  But  that's not new to canon.  Ok to do that on the pro line but on consumer models you need to make it affordable for soccer moms.

The upper level Rebels have always been at this price point when they first came out.  In 2008 I paid just about a grand on an XSi with a kit lens and it was worth every penny.  By this fall it will be down to 650 on Amazon for the body and around 750 with the lens, you'll also be able to get a refurbished for a sweet price.

canon rebel t3i also is a great dslr, see the t3i vs t4i comparison´╝î http://t3ivst4i.com, due to the new t4i released, I believe t3i will have a great discount recently.

A couple of weeks ago, 1100D+kit lens prices dropped to under $AUD500 and I received a couple of queries about "should I buy it".  Yet the 550D is only $50 more.  And the 600D body is only high $500's.  Yet nobody asked about these - the interest was solely in the cheapest model.  In fact, because a lot of department stores only sell the 1100D, none of these people even knew that other camera models even existed. I know, I'm shocked too!  But believe me, there are people out there who aren't fully conversant in the features, subtle differences, pros and negatives of every Canon camera on the market.

.. and so does the t2i - both running magic lantern right now :-)

The older 60d really seems to be quite attractive if you don't need the 650d's touchscreen & video af - there have been some questions around here, too, which one to get. But that won't be forever, by photokina Canon might phase out the 60d and replace it with a higher-priced model.

If the prices of the recently announced stuff are glimpses of things to come, there's no point in waiting for Photokina to see what Canon has under its sleeve.

What's currently happening imho is the only (and thus smart) choice Canon has. The pressure from below is building up, there are mirrorless systems and many manufacturers can build decent entry-level cameras. And Canon will be a major mirrorless player in this market too. So they have to move their dslr line up, we simply have to face that. On the bright side, the new models will be very feature-complete for Canon to be able to sell them.

Ken Rockwell and DxO will review it soon

Ken is behind the game, I would have expected him to have a full review out on Friday!  ;D ;D ;D

Making fun of Ken Rockwell - even though he very well deserves it - doesn't make you look pro. FYI.

Wanna see video of continuous focusing

I would like to see a video of the continuous focusing. Coupled to the articulating touch screen and a digic 5 processor, this Camera seems like a winner and a very inexpensive one, in fact.
