    It looks interesting, but I wish Canon would stop coming out with cheaper and cheaper consumer cams and make something to bridge the gap between 20D and 1DmkII. Something in the $2-2.5k range that competes with a Fuji S2 pro and S3 pro.

    You have a $1500 20D, then the next step is a $4000 1Ds MkII.

    Introduction to the Rebel XT
    Press Release

    There isn't a release date yet, but it should be coming out pretty soon.

    Here are some tidbits:
    • It's smaller and lighter than the DR
    • 8 Megapixels of picture snapping goodness
    • 3 FPS with 14 frame bursts
    • It's priced at under $1000!!!
    For photo newbies like me, this might just drive the prices of the Gen 1 Rebels down to being affordable.

    From a quick read through...this looks to be an impressive step up from the old Digital Rebel. I was thinking about a 20D but I may have to take a long hard look at this camera now.

    SWEET!!! I'm glad I didn't buy the 300d after all!!! This one looks awesome, and I can't wait til it comes out!!! After seeing it, it looks to be a big step up from the 300, but without the cost :) I think this will make it worth holding out now :)

    I'm planning on buying it with you... I guess we won't have to bug Matt all the time for his rebel when this comes out :lmao:



    BTW, dpreview has a preview of the 350D here:
