Interesting but as posted sooner on Colin topic about the release of new DSLR from Pentax, choice is becoming more and more difficult...
I want to buy one of those gems (D100, Canon,...) but cannot figure out which one

personally? i'm not really impressed with the new features (though the camera i know is great)- focusing is better but so what, for 99% of your daytime action shots the D60 is fine- you dont buy a dslr for indoor kid shots or pets. The sensor is the same size as D60 as is the largest image for the D60 and 10D. I would have preferred that they charge $3,000 (thats me personally) and put in an 8mp sensor with something like 4500 wide image and maybe 1.4 or 1.5 crop factor.
i'll probably hold on to my D60 for now. For new buyers like K, i'd say this is a good opportunity for you and it is priced right.

I couldn't agree more... Aside from the price reduction (which is nice for those who've held out on going digital so far) the 10D certainly doesn't make me want to run out and sell my D60. I appreciate that existing D60 users aren't necessarily Canon's target market for the 10D, but even so I'd be surprised if many users upgraded for what Canon have just announced.

I think that in the past couple of years we have seen the technology war - now the price war starts.
Canon marketing have realised that not all of us have (or want to spend) over two grand for a camera, so with this latest offering, the overall spec stays about the same with a few inprovements here and there, and the price drops.
I'd say this is more or less a D61.
As an EOS30 user and ex-Pro90 user, I am definitely interested.

I just sold (pretty sure anyway) my Sony F707, and with the money I think I might put it towards this new 10D. If the image quality is anything like the D60 and the price will really be that low, I'm sold. I was actually looking at buying a used S1 for $1299, but I think that can wait

I'm with you, Dazed767, I'll be selling my F707 with the scads of accessories this summer, and will put that toward a 10D. To bad I probably won't have it in time for my trip to Australia in June though, oh well.

I would agree with the above statements about being less then excited about the specs. They really should have upped the ante on the sensor size. What is really intriguing is the fact that they estimate the street price lower then the d60. What is up with that? Does anyone find that even slightly unusual?
I am glad to hear they are improving the focusing issue that has plagued their equipment (1D included). While Joe says no one buys a dslr to shoot kids and pets indoors, I think there are plenty of people that expect their dslr to be able to shoot kids and pets indoors after laying out a week or two of your paychecks.
One thing about shooting kids... their Moms always want to buy pictures of them! And....I have yet to be questioned by the police for taking their picture and asked to move on...

Well this EOS 1N/EOS 3, fujichrome shooter is definetly interested and the price is very attractive. I've been dragging my feet on digital (or should I say my bank account has been forcing me to drag my feet) for some time now, however I believe with this I might just make the plunge into digital.

Well I too was hoping for a "3D" with, say an 8-10mp sensor - but at least I can hang on to my money for a while longer!
I think this camera has some worthwhile improvements on the D60, though nothing which would warrant an upgrade. I think this is more about Canon a) consolidating position in this part of the marketplace by addressing all the key criticisms of the D60 and b) adjusting the price to meet possible competition from the D100, Sigma D9 and the new Pentax.
Other rumours regarding a September release of an 8mp EOS 3 type and a cut down 4 mp DSLR make more sense now in the context of the 10D - I would imagine prices at around 3K and under 1K for these cameras giving Canon a comprehensive and sensibly spaced (price wise) line of DSLRs
My main interest is really a 2nd body - I'm happy to wait to see if an EOS 3 type becomes available, but if not, or the price isn't right, I'd happily buy a 10D - at least it has battery/grip compatability with my D60

Word from Canon is that they won't be making the mistakes of the D60 and you should be able to buy this camera with a very short lead time. It's been in production since start of Feb and they have pretty good residual stocks already.
I'd wait a bit and give the street price a chance to settle down.
