Still a rumour until Canon officially announces it. Don't hold your breath. Even if he got it right (and he's been telling us about the 24-70 IS for how many years?), it isn't likely to hit the streets before late May.

I was going to buy the D10 but hated the look of it, thought I would wait to see if anything else was around for when I go out bush mouuntain bike riding.

I ended up buying the Pentax Optio WG1......:mad::mad: not really impressed with the photo quality, sturdy enough though.

So when I saw the D20.....:D

Looks like my son will be getting the Pentax.....I knew I should of waited for 2012....

Anyway, the Son will be happy....

One of the things I like about Canon cameras is all the operating menue's are pretty well much the same to navigate through, I had a couple of Ixus's, 20D, I have a 12G, the wife has a 7D and I will be getting the new 5D MK III.

So I will gladly get the 20D, it looks great too....;)

Honestly on a camera that's really designed for the elements, extreme sports etc.... I think they focused on making the camera fit for the purpose.

While RAW would of been a nice to have, I don't think it's a must to have.

I respectfully disagree. Underwater photography really benefits from being able to control white balance.

The hack might work if one needs RAW.

So much cuter than the D10 - here's hoping the images & function are great, too. Can't wait to lay hands on one!

Edit: holy jeepers! That's a stupid price for this camera (BH $349). Panasonic's TS3 is only $238 and I know it works.

I was really looking forward to this camera but the lack of RAW... kills it. :(

Lack of RAW is no big deal because the most important feature by far are the replaceable color plates. The D10 had them, and I'm glad to see this was carried over to the D20. :D

Given that it's only rated to 10 m., I don't think RAW will give you much of an assist in WB correction. I suspect that's well within the capabilities of the camera's AWB setting (though time will tell). I do like that it uses the same NB-6L battery that the SD990, SX220-230 and S-100, to name a few, use.
