    Hi guys,

    From the rumor mill, but seems like quite a possibility that this is going to replaced the highly acclaimed Canon EOS 10D..





    EOS-20D
    8.2 MegaPixels
    DIGIC II
    1:1.6x Crop
    9 Point focusing
    1/8000s Max Shutter speed
    5fps Continuous speed
    25 frame buffer
    EF-s support
    E-TTL II support
    0.2sec startup time
    50g lighter than 10D

    Price US$1600 RRP

    Also 2 Lenses will be announced at launch of 20D
    EF-s 10-22mm /f 3.5-4.5
    EF-s 17-85mm /f 4-5.6 IS (Will be sold with 20D like the 300D)

    ***For English readers***

    The design looks really similar to the 10D bar some minor changes to the button layout etc..
    Seems to have some type of a joystick (aka IBM Thinkpads) on top of the main jpg dial also..
    The internal flash seems to be similar in design to the 300D which has a much higher clearance..

    The two lense we can see are EF-S 10-22mm 3.5-4.5 USM and the EF-S 17-85mm 4-5.6 IS USM.. Note the IS feature on the 17-85.. Seems it's gonna be the killer feature when comparing it to the 18-70 on the Nikon D70.. Both these lenses won't be able to be used on any SLR/DSLRs in the Canon range except for the 300D and the 20D which is a shame.. Certainly a great marketing ploy encouraging 10D or D30/D60 users to change to the 20D in order to take advantage of these exceptional focal length coverage lenses..
    Detailed information and images from here.

    Other items of interest includes...







    Although camera is expected to be availabe by September, I think the usual out of stock situation will exist.

    Cheers,

    why a G6 given the PowerShot Pro S1.
    why I don't do garden hybrids and aquarium strains: natural species is a history of Nature, while hybrids are just the whims of Man.

    Maybe the link does not work anymore. I'll see if there a good alternative picture.

    In the meantime...
