    and

    Looks like it might be the 50D replacement sitting under 5D.

    If this could be true with a body @ $2700, and the kit with an EF 28-135 lens @ $2900, I think it is too expensive comparing with the 5D MkII.

    there's a placeholder in best buy inventory for a new canon camera. the other day it said it was the 50d with a kit lens at $3999, so you know that's not right. before the 5dm2 came out, the placeholder had a price of $9999

    it's due to be announced first week in september, rumors suggest 1080p and manual controls, no info on 24p.

    I wonder if its a lower spec than the 5D? I read a few conflicting opinions. IMHO its lower than the 5D as canon has the 1D, 5D, 50D, 500D in order of spec. Therefore 7D is lesser than the 5D? Engadget states a price that contradicts this though according to some blogs , placing it at similar price to the 5D.

    Interesting times....

    Donīt forget the rumors about a 60D:

    60D Specs
    14.7mp (APS-C)
    More AF Points
    1080p Video

    A little less DoF sometimes is more...

    the rumors are pretty vague some say 60D some 7D some 1.6x crop sensor some full frame but if you forget about the rumors and think about their marketing strategy it would be a bit strange for them to bring out a full frame DSLR lower priced than the MKII. I expect it will be a crop sensor camera to compete with the D300s with 1080p and manual control but whether it has 24p is anyones guess....we can only hope

    Anthony, they cannot deliver 24p until the new video line or any competitor will come up with a serious threat. It is obvious.

    BTW, 30p -> 24p is not an issue for narrative projects.

    I've been holding off buying shake just in case it does have 24p.....rendering on a core 2 duo is an issue
