How come no review on the new D450 SLR? Usually the review appears before the camera is in the shops, but this model is now freely available,yet no-one (including Steve!) seems to have had chance to review one. The only articles I've seen have been basically repeating Canon's press release.

I have been wondering the same thing. I am trying to decide between the Xti and the Xsi and would really love to get Steves take.

You may want to take a look atdpreview.com. They did a pretty extensive preview from the camera show at the end of january and then later posted shots from a production model - it is not a Steves review, but it is better than a Canon press release.

I recently asked Steve's where the Xsi sat in their review schedule and he replied on April 23rd that the review was underway and anticipated it being finished in the next week or so. See the link to that exchange:

I for one and willing to wait.

i have the xti and got the xsi so that i will have a backup for upcoming weddings. the xsi is great. to compare the 2 the awb on the xsi is really good. the xsi also has an auto iso setting that takes the quesswork out of which iso to use. the liveview is pretty good but it is slower to use than a point and shoot, also to have af with liveview you need to go to custom functions and set it to af. when taking a picture using liveview with af the screen blanksout when focusing and then again when taking the picture .the mirror also makes a big clank when using liveview. the liveview is ok and i can see a use for it but if it wasn't there it would be allright with me. bottom line the xsi is worth the extra money in my opinion.

Review sample image 0085 seems to be front focused - any reason? There's been a bit of discussion elsewhere about some XSI's front-focusing.
