By current standards the current Canon digital rebel - 300D has been on the market for a long time. Does anyone have any information that Canon will be introducing an upgrade or replacement for the 300D anytime soon?

I've heard that there will be a slightly downgraded though 8mp version that is supposedly the little brother of the 20D coming out (much like the current digi rebel is the little brother of the 10D). Just a rumor I've heard, I think it will be somethink like the 300DmkII but I'm not sure.
A few days ago there was a flurry of posts about the new DReb II being announced at PMA, and being called the 350D, or the DReb XT in North America. Announced at PMA on something like the 18th, available in March.
About the anything they "knew" was 8MP. Selectable AF mode, too, as I recall. No mention of FEC, which is probably going to be the key spec I need to know to decide between the DReb II "XT" and the 20D. FEC is a necessity, imho.
