Yes the 40D that runs for a while. Iexpect the 50D will fall to 750, and D90 fall to 600 but that is a guess. and the 100D has to fall to about 300 IMHO. BTW does the 1000D not come with a lens for that 400?

If you add in Pentax, Sony and Olympus you have a massive choice.

and to think about 5 year back when I bought my 300D the choice was Sigma SD9 or 300D for under 1000. small wonder these debates rage, the choice is so much bigger, and in many ways the different brands are closer together in terms of features.

If you wander into photography without existing lenses etc how do you pick?

Steve

That's a great list comparing the various Canon and Nikon cameras.

A D300 at 950 is incredible value - though I wonder what the launch price was. Wasn't the launch price around 1300.

Looking at your summary the 5D replacement and entry level full frame camera is due an update. Extrapolating the sensor for the 50D for full frame suggests 18 megapixels and my guess for Photokina is a 5D Mkii and a 1D Mkiv both with the new digic processor.

Aside from the strides in ISO Nikon have upped the standard for focusing and in parallel Canon suffered bad press for it's focusing problems on the 1D Mkiii. I genuinely think that Canon have made big strides with the focusing but we'll soon see.

The issue of back focusing lenses might also be addressed by the ability to micro adjust / calibrate lenses. All in all thank you Nikon and we still have to see the reputed full frame Sony.

Pentax also have raised the bar with their cameras and all in all exciting times for enthusiasts and professonals alike

Confusing as so many people already judging the new releases without any real world testing!

True....... but the new models are hardly going to be worse than the old. Smile

I don't think anyone is 'judging' just discussing and winding up Wink

A high ISO 'shoot out' between all the recently released DSLRs would be very interesting.

Forget the megapixies and the gimmicks. In digital photography ISO is just as much a parameter as aperture and shutter speed.

HI ALL, I AM WAITING TO TAKE DELIVERY OF MY CANON 50D, TO UPGRADE FROM MY 30D. AS I HAVE 4 CANON FIT LENS I WOULD NOT CHANGE TO ANY OTHER MAKE OF CAMERA, VERY MUCH A CANON MAN AND THE RISE FROM 8MG TO 15MG AND OTHER IMPROVEMENTS I COULD NOT RESIST.

It depends on use doesn't it? A higher ISO is no use on sending background out of focus if lens is an f/6.3 or worse. So faster lenses are still important.

Or being able to use a TC and retain AF on a slower lens. Faster lenses have their use just as being able to use a higher ISO.
