    and why the hell would someone discontinue such a good camera? This is some straight money making thing to come out with a new model each year or whatever..crazy..

    Canon announced the 30d this week, might have something to do with the 20d price drop.

    hehe, it has EVERYTHING to do with it..this is crazy, they could alreadly make the ultimate camera but because they want to make money, they release a cam each year with a few little extras, year for year sothey can make money..

    it's basically a 20D with a few upgrades..run now and grab a 20d for cheaper

    here are the new features of the 30D as compared to the 20D:

    New features / changes compared to the EOS 20D

    Redesigned body (more EOS 5D like)
    Larger LCD monitor (2.5")
    Soft-touch shutter release button
    AE/AF lock remains set if shutter is kept half-pressed between shots
    Faster startup and wake from sleep times
    Direct print button on rear of camera (woo!)
    Spot metering
    100,000 shot shutter cycle
    ISO selectable in third stop steps
    ISO speed shown in viewfinder as you change it (still not once changed though)
    Selectable 5 or 3 fps continuous shooting
    PictureStyles instead of simple image parameters
    9,999 images per folder (instead of 100 as per the EOS 20D)
    15 menu languages (3 new)

    So where are you seeing the deals? They've been $1140 at B & H for a little while now. The MSRP on the 30D is only $1399, so they'll probably sell for even less. I want to see the 20D drop below $1000.
