    Hi
    When do you think there will be reviews for the 50D ?

    how long should it take the likes of dppreview.com etc ..
    to publish reviews ?

    Thanks

    Here's a review:

    Looks like a 40D, works like a 40D, higher res screen, 15MP, a little better noise performance.

    Other then that, the 40 and 50D are exactly the same camera.

    Wait to see how the price both of them. Thats what im going to wait for. if the 50D isnt substantially more expensive and seems worth it, then thats the way im going to go.

    They actually say that the two big characteristics - noise and focus speed - are supposed to be noticeable improvements over the 40D, which was no sluggard itself.
    I think the 50D is a great looking camera, and seeing as the price difference between it and the 40D won't be that great, i'll probably get the 50 when my 20 dies.

    How much $$ will the 20D and 30D drop?
    The 30D is sold at Cameta Camera for around $520 how much is the 20D and how much will that drop?

    I don't recall any reviewer doing a comprehensive review much quicker than that (dpreview, BTW, have not posted a full review to the Nikon D700 to date).

    The resone I'm giving out all this information so gladly, is that just recently I've started a website that aims to concentrate all digital camera reviews (links to the reviews) in a searchable database format. So I'm regularly monitoring dpreview.com, imaging-resource, Steve's Digicams and a few others...

    The website address is http://www.dprguru.com

    Of course I'll be glad if you visit my site, you may a) watch the D700 review history, and perhaps project on when you can expect a decent review on the 50D, b) see what reviews the 50D already has (not many), or c) search for any other reviews..

    Cheers!

    The price difference actually seems to be a lot between 40 and 50D judging from B&H / and Amazons pre order price..
    .. in USD it's about €1,400 (Body only)

    The 40D $969 (body only) ..

    maybe when the 50D is actually released the price will drop a bit...

    I think the price of the 40D will probably stay where it is. It dropped substantially already this year, and I think that can be viewed as preparation for the 50D to take it's place at the original $1500-ish pricepoint.
