Interesting, did anybody besides me notice the mention, buried in the
text,
of a 60mm f2.8 EF-S lens?


Yes, me... TWO minutes after you.

I'll get you for this, Middleton!

Heheheheh...
Hmmm, 96mm f2.8 equiv. Not that fast, compared to the film type 100
f2...but better than what's been offered up 'til now for 1.6 crop digital.
Of course, my 50mm f1.8 is faster, and only slightly shorter.

The text says it's an EF-S Canon 60mm f:2.8 Macro? So f:2.8 is about right.

Yes, most definitely a leak, but my feeling is the official press
release will come on Thursday morning, so this isn't that big of a deal.

Sounds good though... looks like they're using a slightly different
sensor from the 20D - hopefully the noise performance will be the same,
if not a little better. Option of Black or Silver is appreciated.

This should make people happy:
"Mirror lock-up and 2nd curtain flash have also been added. "

Duh, Canon! About time.

This also might be interesting, but I don't see why it has to be EF-S:
"EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM lens."

I guess if you really want that 100mm (96, actually) equivalent focal
length.

No ISO 3200 though... I guess we'll have to push exposures (same as what
the camera does) or firmware hack later on.

No mention of price, but if they can manage the same $999 kit price
they'll do very, very well against the D70 et al.


Im going to guess they will price this camera at two thousand (US)

dollars.
No real reason for this, I just dont see it at $999.

Because then it will be more than the 20D Canon has already reduced sales
of their 20D with this 20D Lite...

It's actually more than about right, it is a true macro, 1x (life size.)

http://www.eos-magazine.com/EOS%20sy.../EFS_60mm.html
I've learned to be a bit cynical when a lens comes out marked "macro," too
many zooms make the claim without really being macro lenses. But this one
backs it up, apparently.

Mind you Canon does have several existing, excellent macro lenses that offer
1:1 (and the 65mm that does 5:1). This new lens being a EF-S means you can't
swap it over to your Elan for film. Canon is making certain that film is
dead.

The 20D WITH a lens would be more expensive wouldn't it??

Oddly enough the 18~55 is an option on the 20D, that is a $100 Canon lens.
The 350D/XT will sell for usd $1000. That has already been stated. Street
prices will be around $900-950 initially, down more by late-summer.

Price is $899 for body.



Then I'll have to see what kind of pictures it takes...

At 8mp and a 899 price I'm not expecting much, but then it IS a Canon, and
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a GOOD one.

This is a source for consternation...

One major camera company comes out with a 4mp DSLR for $3500
Another major name brand comes out with an 8mp DSLR for $899

How to choose, how to choose.

Apples and oranges, the Nikon D2Hs is designed for photojournalists, it's
really fast, has a huge frame buffer, and excellent image quality. I have
seen images and you would have sworn it was film. The Drebel is a consumer
level camera, with a so-so lens but is cheap. It's like comparing a Honda
Civic with a HumVee. Both have different niches.
