    Accidental Leak...

    Well, here it is.

    Quick Specs:

    - Choose between Silver or Black
    - 8MP
    - DIGIC II!!!
    - E-TTL II
    - Mirror Lock-Up
    - 2nd Curtain Flash
    - 3fps for 14 Shots
    - Selectable Focus Modes (One-Shot AF, AI SERVO and AI Focus)
    - FEC of of ±2 stops in 1/3- or 1/2- stop
    - 0.2 second statup time
    - Writing to memory card is 3.5 times faster
    - Body more than 10% lighter and 25% smaller
    - (Unconfirmed) People are reporting that some online shops have immediately reduced the 300D's price by $100-$200.
    - (Unconfirmed) Ship Date - Early March
    - (Unconfirmed) Price - $899 (body) /$999 (w/ kit lens)

    Hmm, sounds like a 20D minus just a couple things. The source on those last 2 points is a retailer posting on FredMiranda.

    Wow, it's a step above the 10D now

    It looks like they've taken away the built in firmware limitations and added the same type of improvements that they added to the 20D. I will have to re think my upgrading the 10D with the next generation prosumer camera after the 20D.

    20D still has a few major advantages

    - Build Quality (Metal vs. Plastic)
    - Bigger buffer
    - Frame Rate
    - 3200 ISO, extra advanced features

    Other than that though, it's not that big a difference anymore. I'm still going to get the 20D, hoping that they'll drop the price.

    Unless Nikon has another card up their sleeves (they might, but not to counter this), I'll safely say that Canon has a real winner here. What more could you want for $1000?

    Digital Rebel XT - Lens Recommendation?

    This is indeed exciting, esp. since Jeff Keller thinks he'll have sample photos next month. I need to graduate to a dSLR from my Panasonic DMC-FZ10 (12X zoom) someday...can someone point me towards an equivalent lens to put on the Digital Rebel XT? The Panasonic has a Leica Vario-Elmarit 35-420mm equivalent, F2.8 across the entire zoom range. Anything even close?? Thanks.

    Tamron and Sigma 18-200 F3.5-6.3

    Although these are much slower lenses, both Tamron and Sigma are introducing lenses which come closest. They are both introducing 18-200mm F3.5-6.3 lenses this spring. On the Dreb, this would be equivalent to 29-320mm, and on the D70 27-300mm. Like I said, these are slower lenses, but with the higher ISO's of dSLR's, they may be pretty good lenses. I am looking forward to trying them out myself.

    Ray, thanks for the heads-up on those two lenses. That's 11X zoom, close enough in my book. They're just a tad slower as you point out, and I lose the image stabilization, but heck - shooting at 1600/3200 ISO will gain me a few f-stops. Cool beans!
