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  Confused

Looks very promising, it will definitely be my "project" for this year!
Especially if the price really drops to 1500...

Interesting that it's rated under £1500 in the UK. Wonder what that makes my D60 worth?

Looks nice, except if you want to shoot in RAW:

* Note that the EOS-10D does not output a separate JPEG but that the JPEG is embedded within the RAW file and must be extracted later (which is a pity)

Also max 6.0Mb output file size in RAW is quite small for a max output isn't it?.

Cheers

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.

Joe,

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.

Craig.

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  Big grin

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.  Sad

Yeah baby!I was ready to buy a D60 right before they were discontinued, so this is the camera for me.

I preordered one today @ $1499. I seriously doubt that price will stick, but I don't care - I was ready to shell out $2100 for a D60.

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

Cheers,

Colin

Yes, late March it is...but if you're not on a list already, I would guess that your wait might be longer. The shops I talked to yesterday said they have *never* seen this much demand for a camera.

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.

Hmmmmm... tempting!

I'm not really into the whole Nikon / Canon thing, I just happen to have an old Nikon SLR and some lenses but this new EOS 10D is looking mighty tempting.

...Time to start buttering up the wife for a nice big impulse purchase!

i cant believe that this thing really is selling for 1500 bucks (i figured it would actually go for 2000 and not the 1500)- you have to love canon, they are basically telling the other manufacturers go .... themselves by doing that while at the same time giving you the better af and other little features. Canon is awesome. I bet Sam Chui now decides to finally make the switch. Royal too, maybe even Art. Its a no-brainer  Big grin

So the results of this camera will be as good as the D60, the difference is just the price?

Oh, yeah Canon is awesome. They make you pay $2000 for a D60 which had major problems and they had to discontinue production to release a "fixed" model then sell it for cheaper. Oh yeah, Canon is AWESOME!! They're not telling other mfg's to go .... themselves they're telling the D60's purchasers you got ....ed  Smile

Oh, and Joe I would say there are more people interested in their DSLR performing indoor shots and kid/pet shots then there are full sun airliner shots...trust me on that one.

I love the C vs N debates!

C users just put their case across and N users get all animated and use caps, shout get angry etc.

Just shows you get a C camera and you just use it to take great shots and N users are still in search of other things.

C users are simply content with great cameras.

Nikon's next camera is going to have a great big key on the side. To operate the camera, photographers have to wind the key round and round until its tight, and then as you use the camera the key rotates the other way and there's a sort of mechanical buzzing noise. Nikon call the introduction of a clockwork mechanism to their cameras "innovation", because it saves photographers having to use these new fangled things called batteries.

Canon on the other hand get on with the business of producing nice products that work, and when the opportunity to genuinely improve comes along, they go for it. Sheesh, what a strange company Canon are!

How many 15 year olds can pre-order a camera like that.

Looks like a lot of people can not wait to buy new EOS 10D, look on eBay D60 for
$1400 is not a problem. I think that everybody who sells now D60 tomorrow puts pre-order for EOS 10D.

I'll be looking into one by the end of the year.

I bet I can sell my camera for £200 (or maybe alot more with a B-300??), then get some sweet lenses, a nice loan and a nice new camera (or a second hand D60 by the sounds of it  Laugh out loud).

Nice... Canon does it again!
