I thought canon specificaly said the 50D was not the 40D upgrade? (eventhough it does fit this postion currently).

I think they always say that - unless the model is given a Mk II or Mk III designation. Wink

5D could have become 7D, but that would be perceived as a lower-spec model.

I am rather looking forward to the video option in cameras. Saves me on having to get a dedicated video system! (and lugging it around too).

As for the names I thought canon (or nikon) were going to try and move away from the 50D sort of names - since people keep getting them confused with the other brand (no good if your buyers can't tell your product from the competitions - they might just walk outof the store with the "wrong one" Wink)

They should give them 'friendly' names like cars..

How about the Pentax Herpes (everyone's heard of it but nobody wants it) or perhaps the Canon Myopia? Smile

It's just as confusing though for Canon USA with all the different varieties of 'Canon Rebel'.

well they have to move away from the xxD at some point - they can only make 9 cameras with that model code before they have to start names like 55D which just sounds like a little upgrade on the 50D
