It may not wait
I received new information from a couple of sources regarding a new Rebel for PMA. Both sources claim that a new dslr is definitely coming, and the Rebel will be it.

1D3n/1D4
There will be no new pro camera body for PMA they both say as well.

Neither had any information in regards to new lenses.

Waterproof Camera [CR2]

Is Canon going to wise up and release a waterproof/shockproof camera for PMA? One of the sources thinks so.

Panasonic recently launched one and I’m willing to bet Olympus is going to lose a ton of sales because of it (SD Cards instead of xD).

There’s nothing defininitive at this time.

  1. In that case MXKY, pick up a 40D. I think they’re about the same price now (body only) and you will be much happier with the xxD over a xxxD or xxxxD body. After having a 40D since this past summer, I’m never moving back down to a tiny rebel.

  2. Hi Alan, here in France, it’s really not the same price. The 450D body only is about 500 euros (645$) and the 40D body only costs 750 euros (968$).. And I find the 40D a bit too big and heavy, especially with my 17-40 and the lens hood.

  3. I might be going against the grain here, but I’d quite like a pro body with a 1.6 crop and a few less megapixels. As someone keen on birding, I find the critical aspects of a camera are reach (hence the crop), speed and low-light response (for birds that skulk in cover). My kit now is a 40D using the 100-400mm lens, and switching to FF would mean having to fork out for a hugely expensive 600mm lens to get the same reach and maintain autofocus. I did look at the 50D, but the high ISO performance looked unusable, so I’m now looking to sacrifice a little crop for what I hope will be a 1.3 crop 1D3 successor with high ISO to match or better the 5DII. If Canon could put out a pro body with 1.6 crop, however, that would be perfect.

  4. nikon doesn’t have a camera in that price range that can touch the canons in that range – the xs is a superior camera to the d60 never mind the xsi
