    Maybe they'll just get rid of the viewfinder too []

    It looks like a forgery to me. The 5 is slightly below the 00. Also there are no microphone holes in the front. Good fun though!

    Seems the flippable LCD was a wild guess


    From the spec, it looks like a "5D2 lite"


    And also, I am wondering what role 50D would play in the market now...


    But this also depends on 500D's price tag

    Now my 400D really is starting to look a bit dated[]

    Indeed, mine too, the new camera offers slightly higher pixel count (more noise), it offers higher ISO (even more noise), it's got live view (OK, good thing), it's got movie mode (I don't care about that), it has some new and neat features like "Highlight Tone Priority", "Auto Lighting Optimizer", "Peripheral illumination correction" (all good things). The pricing will be interesting as it looks like it can indeed kill 50D with a lot of the features (unless 50D gets upgraded). Really, the only feature of 50D that's better than 500D is that I don't have to throw away my CF cards...


    Let's look at the pricing, in Australii a 450D sets me back (body only, Australia dollars) <span class="price"]- $899.00, 1000D - <span class="price"]$749.00, 50D - <span class="price"]$1,644.00. 500D will kill off 450D but will be more expensive by, I'm guessing up to about $200-$250. What the heck would to compell me to buy a 50D with its current features and price instead of 500D? Is there a 60D coming soon...?

    IfI usemy camera everday, the xxD body is always better than the xxxD/Rebel body. Forthe joystick, the quick control dial and faster frame rate, I'd choose a xxD body over the xxxD/Rebel body anytime.

    Warehouse Express in the UK have it on pre-order for &pound;870. It will be cheaper in the USA (as with all camera equipment) and about 30% more expensive here in rip-off Ireland! At that price, it certainly isn't entry level. The 50D still has the FPS advantage and more rugged build.....
