    someone is saying that canon is dropping the 20D cos the 350D is good
    enough. Sounds like bollocks to me.

    Yup. They out-competed themselves.

    No, not all that far-fetched, sounds just like something Canon would do
    (and *do* do on a regular basis).

    What the heck are you talking about, Dallas? Canon hasn't dropped a camera
    short of its product cycle since the EF-M of 1989. Or are you referring to
    the demise of the FD mount back in '87? Get over it.

    Refferences ? Or you're just bored?

    If the 20D is being discontinued it is more likely belcasue a 30D or 40D
    is in the wings.

    Come on, Skip. How many digital cameras has Canon brought out in the last
    five years (and not just SLR's)?

    None were discontinued before their product cycle was stretched. In 5
    years, there's been the D2000, D30, D60, 10D, 20D in line of succession,
    then the 1D/1Ds also descending from the D2000 then the mkII iterations of
    same, and, of course, the Rebel pair, 300D and 350D.
    In that same time, Nikon has produced the D1, D1h, D1x, D2h, D2x, D100 and
    D70, and are sure to produce at least one more, if not two, by the end of
    the year. So, for now, Canon has an 11-7 lead, but surely to be pared to an
    11-9 lead soon. Not that great a difference. And if you add in the
    Kodak/Nikon and Kodak/Canon collaborations, the gap narrows even more...
    I don't keep track of all of the P&S offerings, Canon can offer bunches of
    them, for all I care. They do seem to cover more of the market than Nikon
    does, but that doesn't mean that they are discontinuing or replacing cameras
    faster, or even too fast. But Nikon has a bunch of non SLR digitals out
    there, too, as do Minolta and Olympus.
