    Maybe 50% more than the regular 20Da? Depends on what
    Canon wants as a margin.

    Is it actually selling at that price, or is it the manufacturer's
    suggested selling price?

    Keep wishing. The more products Canon make for diversified applications,
    the more profit they will make.

    It is a limited product, virtually handmade product with a 90 day delivery
    date from order date. It sells for full price. There are no discounts.

    Overpriced? The Meade Deep Sky Imager retails for USD $300, the 20Da will
    probably be USD $2,500.

    I'm wondering if convential "terrestrial" photographers
    will find it worth owning at for $2400? Problem with
    Canon is that there is a big $ jump from the 20D to the
    other two conventional models.

    It has no real benefit for terrestial photographers that I can see. It's
    just a modded more expensive 20D. I can get a 20D body in town for CDN
    $1,699.99

  16. "The world's largest selection of interchangeable autofocus lenses???

    Who are they trying to kid?"

    Who has more? Just wondering, not arguing.

  17. It may also be of interest to photomicrographers - the lack of preview
    facility for focussing is a significant drawback for DSLRs compared with
    compacts, which is a great shame as the other benefits are substantial.
    Its reduced suitability for general use is a shame though - I really
    don't need the extended IR facility!

    It has no extended IR facility. It is modified to allow H<alpha> red which
    is 656.3 nm. IR starts at above 700 nm to 1 mm (1,000 nm). So the
    sensitivity is enhanced in the visible red area. AFAIK Canon still blocks
    IR.

  19. OK, that may be helpful, though it would be good to see some
    clarification from Canon. It would also be good to see some
    clarification on the circumstances in which the live preview works -
    references to the feature being "effective for night viewing conditions
    only" is rather too vague to tempt me to order one!.

    From what I read in Google translated Japanese when the camera was first
    announced in February. The live view works while the shutter is open, during
    exposure. So you can tweak your focus at the start of a extremely long astro
    image.
