The Canon Rebel XSi

And 2 Pentaxs the K20D and K200D

The word on the street is that Nikon will be announcing a d90 (or similar), and very unlikely a 5d equivalent (d300x?) doubt that last one though. This is all for PMA which is 6 days away. Also along with the cameras, canon has 2 new lenses and pentax has 5.

1] new rebel looks kick ass. HUGE upgrade from the xti [even though the xti is still an amazing little camera] but a big price upgrade too. w/ 12mp, cmos sensor, and 3in lcd w/ liveview...this camera is going to rule the entry level dslr maket

2] the 2 new pentax [especially the 20d] looks absolutely phenomenal. almost 15mp w/ the pentax dust removal and shake reduction

3] i have also heard rumors of a nikon upgrade to the d80 [be it d90 or d80x]. it'd really be a wise move on nikon's part to combat the new rebel...cause that thing's gonna sell [and the d80 has been out for 2 years if you believe in the 2yr cycle myth]

4] i haven't heard anything nikon releasing a 5d equivalent. but i have heard possible rumors of a 5d upgrade. but still...rumors. i guess we'll all find out on the 30th for sure.

should be interesting...

wow.. I think the xsi is more fancy for less money than the 40d. So many features! I was thinking about buying a 20d but now I'm not so sure.

The pentax is pretty cool it's self. If I didn't already have canon lens and flash I'd consider it.

So maybe I shouldn't have just bought a d80?
Time for an upgrade I think..

that rebel has a lot of the features that made the 40d so exciting and new. Said the body was a mix of steel and a poly/fiber mix? that sounds cool; and a lot better than "plastic."

wait? the body on the xsi isn't plastic? Maybe I will end up buying it. The only thing feature I think I'd miss is the scroll wheel.

I can get a canon 40d from b&h for $1,000 used or a 350d for $350 used. Everything like dropped price today. ahhhh! I need moneys quick!
