Odd how the specs are so much alike. Canon is playing catch-up. It'll be\ninteresting, if the 50D is true and specs as stated, to see a comparison\nreview. Interesting too to see what SamPen come up with next...\n\nI got bored of Canon's incremental upgrades (the cameras were not much\nremoved from each other) and so went for something completely different and\nmuch more exxxxciting - Samsung GX20. Still with the 50D they're not quite\noffering the same - no incamera IS. Nice they've gone for the FF/BF adjust\nand weather seals and hopefully a proper auto ISO. They still though seems\nto be using their name rather than substance as an enticement. This though\nmight actually work otu to be a boost for SamPen.
