Not confirmed yet but Canon have leaked news of a new DSLR waiting in the wings...

It is aimed primarily at beginners and those having trouble with the larger Pro SLR´s.

Based on the 1 series, it has been significantly reduced in size to concentrate on the growing number of amateur users, particularly children.

Would love to have this. Can't imagine the reaction from other folks while out shooting in the wild.

Judging by the size of that glass (lens) relative to the NEW Camera 1 series body, it must be a 1200mm at f1.2 lens (and an L at that!) Wow, I want it!!

I'm just a bit worried if the smaller sized handgrip might cause me hand cramps. I have the 350D (XT) and that's ok for me... but I'm not sure if the decreased grip size (with superior lens) would cause me wrist fatigue or hand shake (does the lens have IS?)!!

Great post!! :blah::-):shock::lol::?

Can you give us some info on it (like the size of the LCD, sensor, MP's ect.)? and is it possible to buy an adapter for EF lenses?

Of course....the LCD is "negligable", the sensor is "there somewhere" with a8 pixels, (not megapixels).

It does take other lenses, but they were swallowed by my baby daughter....:?

Anyway, I am off to meet a wedding couple now...would love to turn up with this and see their reaction.

Cheers,

Nick
