Just as I was trying to find a 5d Mark II in stock, word of this comes to my attention! Ack! Maybe I can have my combo dSLR/HD video fix AND still feed my family!

Any conjecture on the price point?

Where did you get this info from? I would be much more interested in a 60D with the larger body, faster continuous shooting, larger view finder better controls, that would make me consider a new camera!

Hi Mark,

It's been mentioned on Gizmodo here: http://i.gizmodo.com/5174244/rumor-c...on-march-25th.


Here's the body of the page:

"Canon has an event scheduled for March 25th, and rumor has it that their big announcement will involve a new DSLR in the Rebel line—the EOS 500D. As far as specs are concerned, the 500D is rumored to have a 15-megapixel sensor, DIGIC IV imaging processor, ISO levels up to 12800, an articulating LCD with 900K resolution an some sort of 1080p "movie mode"—an extension of the 5D Mark II and similar to the Panasonic Lumix DMC GH1. Information about the 500D varies, so it should be taken with a grain of salt. Besides, it seems that releasing the 500D now would essentially cannibalize their 40D and 50D."

I saw that rumour on Gizmo too. I'll believe it when it is actually released for sale. :-)

Agreed. Until it's actually available, it's vaporware. I'd like to see a Steve review first, too!:|
