im not that impressed. but then again, what was left for canon to do? They made a more affordable, semi-prosumer camera, that's small enough to appeal to the masses but 'pro' enough to give some extra features not in the xxD lines. Lack of microadjust is just silly, swivel screen is a gimmick but im sure people will use it for video taping their kids and such because they can. SD cards... i can actually understand this because when i go to my local bestbuys they dont even carry cf cards. i usually have to order online, so there's the consumerist POV for that change. ISO performance will be inline with the 7d and the t2i. 5.3fps... really.... really... canon... 9 af points (although cross types)... really... at this level of competition 11points is bare minimum for anything more than the standard 7(am i wrong with this for the xxD line?). D90 replacement will kick it's butt imo according to the rumored specs.
