Reading Gary's preview the back of it looks very much like the new Sony Alpha 100. Especially with what looks like the "eye start" sensor under the viewfinder, and the large print rear display with settings information. I look forward to playing with one in my local Jessops.

Also i like th look of the new 50mm f1.2L at last a L series 50mm!!

There was an L-series 50mm years ago - the hopeless, soft, EF1.0L. Like a complete fool, I bought one.
i hope you've still got it. Even though you say it was hopeless i think they still make a pretty penny on ebay and the like becasue of it's rarity

That and the fact you can use them in near pitch dark...

Looking to upgrade my 300D but if it's the same size as the 350D, then I don't care what else it has, I won't be buying.
I love my 350D. its so easy to use and not big, bulky or heavy. if the 400 is anything like it then i'll be saving my pennies for one and passing the 350d onto my sons
It's seems the camera manufacturers, just keep adding another camera with a little bit more on than the last, in order to just make money, I have my 300D it takes photo's and they ain't half bad, don't feel the need to upgrade. The owners of 12 month old 400D's will be wanting to upgrade to 450D's and so on. It looks to be more aimed at want and not need.
My eyesight is poor so compared to my 350D the new 2.5" screen will be a huge improvement - a selling point on it's own for me.
My Canon D20 feels a little flimsy with a weighty lens on it, particulary around the card door. The 400D is even more lightweight than the D20. I won't be upgrading until it comes in a stronger box.
I am really pleased with mine. It is a big improvement on the 300D in terms of speed from switching on to being ready to shoot. Burst is far better as well.
The large screen is also very nice. It is a shame they changed the battery.
