Nikon to release a cheaper FX camera? D10 is the rumor. It'll come in at the $3000 price point.
Will Canon counter with a cheaper FF? Say something around the D300?
What Canon needs to do for FF.
They need to release a much better performing wide angle lens. The EF-S 10-22 on a 40D is better than the 16-35/17-40 on the 5D. The 14 2.8 II is a disappointment. I'm willing to bet there will be a 17-40 update.
