From the dealer I talked to, the 1D will be replaced. You can't get new stock of it. So my bet is there. Will they anounce two new DSLRs? I don't know.

It would make lots more sense to me that the 10D would be replaced than the other rumor I heard. That they will anounce a camera to fit between the DRebel and the 10D. To me, there just doesn't seem to be the price room there. But I'm no marketing person, so what would I know?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but this spring Nikon will be releasing the D70--sub $1000 and yes, it's black. :-)

Rumour confirmed by UK company, new camera due in March, probably out by April... Lots of price dropping of 10D in UK... Cheapest less than 1,100 UKP including VAT... Very good price as I get the tax back... I'm going to buy one as new camera will probably be priced nearer to the 10D price when they first were released. :-)

Any chance the successor to the 10D will have a full-frame sensor? They could call it the 10Ds.

I don't believe so. Full size sensors are very expensive to make, I would be very surprised if they could keep the cost down while using one.

Then maybe they'll produce a 10D-like camera that can take the EF-S lenses. Unless they think people buying the mid-level camera wouldn't be satisfied with the optics of the 18-55, it's hard to believe they'd continue making that lens just for the Rebel. It's also strange to think of the entry-level SLR having capabilities the more advanced one doesn't.

My guess is along your route. That they don't believe a pro would be happy with the 18-55. I've never used one, but the results from it seem very good.

I bet they'll stick with that sensor size, but it's only a guess. Nikon has more invested in its DX lens line, so it obviously will stay at 1.5x (and I believe they have stated they will.)
