Yes, wait until the 60D announcement, or at least until its rumored date. The price on the 50D should drop once the 60D is announced.

Thanks. I will definetly wait for it to be announced. feb 8 is around the corner anyway.

well do you have a camera that you're satisfied to shoot with in the meantime for 3-4 months?

well I traded my T1i so I dont have anything to shoot with at the moment bummer.:cry: I will wait for a couple of weeks to see what happens, I guess if nothing happens I will probably go for the 7D, the problems is with the rumors going around I dont want to spend the money on the 50D and then the new 60D comes out and the price of the 50D drops, so if anything I'll probably go with the 7D.

same here. was going with the 50 but I'd really love to have video. so I'm waiting for the 60 instead. if it disappoints with no video manual controls or a flip screen, I first thought of having a 50D for less (even used) but ended up saying "boah! might as well dash out for the 7d with every bells and whistles and great iso performance for a crop". a 5dII would be the perfect fit for my kind of photography but I can't justify paying 4000$ for a body and only one lens. I need a grip, a new CF card, hand strap, 2nd battery, and probably a 17-55 plus hood and 70-200 down the road.

dang it adds up quickly!

I think the 60D will be a slower 7D with 40D/50D AF, without the flash commander, stripped down of some video features and MAYBE has something like a built in GPS module.
What news can this bring that would make people buy it over a 7D - apart from a slightly lower price tag?

Canon is expected to launch a new "movie focused" camera on Monday, Pocket-lint has learnt.

The camera company is holding an event at the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) awards in London on the 8 February titled "Canon at the movies".

The timing coincides with a plethora of announcements from other camera makers like Nikon, Olympus, Pentax and Fujifilm, but also corresponds with rumours circling photo sites that the Japanese company could be about to launch the Canon Rebel T2i in the US and/or Canon 60D cameras.

According to rumours (via Canonrumours), the T2i spec list includes a new LCD, selectable fps settings in video mode, and a new build quality and shape for the Rebel range.

Meanwhile, a forum post on DPreview suggests an 18-megapixel 60D is on the cards. Its supposed spec sheet features 6.3fps, DIGIC IV processor and 24p/30p HD video recording modes (it lists 36fps, we are assuming a typo).

Canon declined to comment on the rumours when we phoned, however, did say that all its recent product launches would be on hand for us to play with.

Lazy people like me that want the simple AF system over the advanced AF of the 7D or want a slightly lighter camera.

Ok, I'm not that lazy :lol: but the extra $200-300 could mean the difference between a high end EF-S and an L lens. Or at least if the rumors are true and the 7D price remains around $1500 or so and the 60D will be just shy of $1200.

This translation from Japanese should clear things up:

"Sun February 8 announcement that Canon has some?
FEBRUARY 5, 2010
Photo Rumors that the article, "Canon at the movies" named events of February 8, is likely to be held in London. However, whether the advent of digital SLR with video capabilities, which is what its title as its video cameras, and do not know that."

There now, that settles that. :)
