Did I get this right?

o $2199 for the body
o $599 for a lens

The 10D and the D100 will eat this E1 alive! I'm all OK for small/light but not at these prices! BTW I can still swap a film body to the lenses that I already own! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I sure hope they know what they are doing since there could still be plenty of surprise from now till October...

It sounds like a totally, AWESOME camera!

Thanks, Steve, for a great first look!

Guess I will wait for the first refurbished ones

... What about the DOF of smaller sensors? Did everyone just forgot about it all of a sudden. :P

The benefit of the 4/3 system lower cost is definetly not reflected in the price though... especially for the early adopters with the limited lens choices! :lol: :lol: :lol:

only the cheap pt and shoot digicam come out almost every other year or so....the expensive dslr suppose to last due to their quality...so don't expect them to change model every year...just like merecedes...do you see them change models every year?

but looks like nikon will come out with something pretty soon

What about the D60 -> 10D? That was less than a year... (may be it's not expensive enough). :lol: :lol: :lol:

The theory I've head is that the D60 wasn't really a planned model but that the D100 was so much better than the D30 that Canon took what they had done (I assume on the 10D) and split off a new development effort to create something which could compete. Or designed it quickly to get something out there.

I'm not sure I buy this, but it does fit the fact that the manufacturing effort put into the D60 wasn't that strong. They killed it really quickly, which was clearly planned ahead of time because it happened just before the 10D came out. That type of part purchasing decision has to be made a while before hand.
