    Hey all,

    I'm thinking of buying a new digital camera soon, and make the switch from
    film completely. I curently have canon lenses and bodies, and I've been
    looking at the EOS 10D a good bit. I was wondering if canon is planning on
    releasing a successor to the 10D anytime soon at all? or is there even a
    point in waiting?

    Thanks

    Mike

    No point in waiting, as anybody that knows for sure can't say. The 10D is
    still a teriffic camera even if something new comes out next week. I got
    the D30 a month before the D60 came out and amazingly enough I was still
    really pleased with the images.

    I'm in a similar situation. For me, if it would be out in a month or
    so, I'd wait. If it's three months or more, I would not wait.

    That's a great statement. Judging from some reactions to the
    ever-improving digi's, you would think that older digi's somehow perform
    worse than when they were new...

    The PMA show begins in a few days, all the BIG announcements will happen
    on the first day. After that you should be 'stable' to decide.

    Consider also that a lot of pre-owned D60's will be on the market and
    that might be a better place to start, esp. if there is a new 10D killer
    .... hold out D60 owners will leapfrog to the new model.

    Waiting, why not? The digi industry has not plateau'd at all for
    improvements. Canon's leading statistic appears to be the releasing of
    new cameras.

    Waiting, why? If you're burning through rolls of film to make 4x6's and
    the odd enlargement to 8x12, then a D60/10D will pay off quickly enough.

    Cheers,
    Alan.

    Wait for 2010, a 10D-class camera will have a full frame 12mp sensor and run
    at 8fps all for $1,200.

    I don't read it that way at all. I read it as if you're going to spend
    the money, and having right now is not absolutely necessary, why not
    wait a month or so and get the newer version. It's only a month. Big
    whoop! I don't see where anyone has even implied that the older stuff
    is garbage.

    There is that, yes. And I know that some do not suffer from it while
    some do.

    I know that an older version does not automatically take crappy photos
    when the new version comes out, but theoretically anyway, the newer one
    will take better photos, or may at least be more solid and reliable or
    have some new useful feature. If that's the case, and you don't need
    it right away, then I see no harm in waiting another month or so.

    The 10D came a year after the D60, but did you take into account the fact
    that the D60 was announced 2 years after the D30?

    In message <>,
    I would expect a "10D=class" camera to maintain the 10D's pixel pitch.
    What kind of "update" reduces a camera's ability to take advantage of
    the resolution of a given lens? A 10D-class full sensor camera would
    require at least 16 MP.

    OK, so it'll be 16mp. I was just messin' around anyway.

    I still suspect it's not.

    And it will be here long before 2010. My guess is that it will be
    here by 2006 at the latest.
