Some guy did a translation from the Canon china website, heres what he found out, im excited, are you? The Canon China website seems to have a page describing an EOS 50D camera. The URL of the page is http://www.canon.com.cn/products/camera/eos/50d/index.html. Since this is an official Canon website, the information about the Canon EOS 50D seems to be real. My translation (via online resources - I don't speak Chinese!) of the EOS 50D page seems to suggest the following: The name is the Canon EOS 50D A 15.1 MP CMOS sensor A Canon Digic 4 processor (the translation says "digital video" processor, but I'm not sure I can trust the translation 100% and even if I can I don't know that calling it a "video" processor means anything) Anti-shake feature built into the camera (hard to believe, but great if true). The translation I have is "Anti-Shake feature built-in camera, due to lower Shoudou the fuzzy images, taken more fun!". I'm not sure what "Shoudou" is! I suspect they are probably talking about an IS system, with the IS in the lens. I really do find it hard to believe that Canon would offer body based IS at this stage of the game. Additional measures to eliminate dust on the sensor. 6.3 fps (3fps option) 35 metering zones with evaluative, spot, center weighted and partial metering. 9 cross type AF zones 920,000 pixel VGA LCD monitor Basic ISO range from 100-3200, with 6400 and 12800 available via a custom function. Live View Magnesium alloy body Shutter good for "10 million" cycles (I'm 100% sure this is a mistranslation, probably 100,000. The position of decimal points does get lost in translation). That's about all for now. Stay tuned to this page and I'll update it if and when more information comes in. No word on price or availability of course. Since it seems to be aimed at the Nikon D300 as competition, my guess would be a price in the region of $1300 - $1500 (the D300 currently sells for around $1600). Availablity probably in the early fall (September/October) would be my guess. UPDATE: Though the machine translation seems to be saying that IS is in the camera, I'm informed that a human translation says the stabilization is, in fact, in the lens.
