What I anticipate:

DIGIC III
10/12MP
Live View
Highlight priority
ISO 3200
Larger LCD

I heard a few places mention swivel-screen and movie mode too. If that's the case, I'm definitely buying one.

The 40D's AF would be nice, but I doubt Canon would do that.

It'd be interesting if Canon ended up crossing into the 40D's market range like they did before. I see a few others here and elsewhere think they'd be more careful about that kind of thing again. The only problem is that there's not a lot of room to move.

Considering the market for the Rebel a swivel screen and movie mode isn't a bad idea. A lot of the cameras that people would be upgrading from or may even be considering instead would have these features. They could add a lot of those kinds of features from the non-SLR market to make it look more of a worthwhile step in the series as far as "added features" while not stepping on the 40D's toes and still making it look more attractive to a new buyer. I think if Canon pulled something like that it would also help distinguish the Rebel and the xxD lines more in the future (add more low end camera/consumer style features to the Rebels and more trickle down from above of semi-pro/pro type features to the xxD) and reduce the chances of them competing with each other at all. A good entry level DSLR with all the features of the compacts could be very tempting to people and might make them move up that price bracket.

Perhaps Canon will manage to surprise everyone again with the next launch. They so often do. Keeps things interesting.

If anyone gets good reliable leaks or info, then that would be nice to see. There's a never ending tide of speculation passed off as leaks and edited photos pretending to be new models!

Thansk guys. I just see sony http://www.sony.net/Pr​oducts/dslr/ (external link)

There having IS inthe body it looks like and up to 6400 ISO. And The rebel has no stock IS and the lenses are high and ISO 1600. So to the avg person they might lose bussines. I think they need to do a good one to compete wtih everybody.

Any rumors on dates? I would like to have a new body.

Uh.. the A700 isn't in the same price range as the Rebel series.. so I don't see how to the 'average person' Canon would lose business. To the average person, price is arguably one of the most important factors - the A700 has a RRP of more than $100 over the 40D.

And we're talking about Sony. What is their need for overpricing? Stupid marketing as well with consumer reports. I had a lady come int he other day saying consumer reports show...some $400 Sony P&S is great. For one, i hope so for that price, but for 2, taking pictures there and then, they sucked. Idk, people see something and that's how it goes.

Canon has no worries. They will still sell and still win with the pros. One pro buys a 300 F2.8 IS, think how many rebel's you could buy. Besides, in body IS, from what I've heard from most sellers is that it does suck. I've had one salesperson try to tell me otherwise.

But don't forget, probably 4fps. Can't stay at 3 forever, especially since the 40D went up. Still, might be interesting. IF it is, then I'll swap my 20D for one as a back up. I like the smaller size for certain things. I thought of getting an XT anyhow.

its going to be hard for canon to do much of an upgrade on the xti w/o stepping on the 40ds toes
im thinking live view, digic III, 18-55IS kit lens, and an cf/sd card slot

Besides SD cards being physically smaller, is there any benefit to using SD vs CF cards? I've personally had 2 SD cards randomly die on me (name brand cards). I've never had trouble with CF cards though, and have a couple 256 & 512MB cards that are a good 6 years old & still work great.

You can't bend the pins on an SD slot.

Now think about this for a second. How could an SLR shoot a movie? It would have to be at least 30fps. I wouldn't hold my breath on that one.

Prices on the 400D are falling through the floor. Amazon has it for $542! Clearing out inventory for sure. Adorama dropped their price to $549 and B&H dropped it from $579 to $559.

Easily : with the mirror up, just like live preview. the same way P&S do it. And just like P&S cameras, the movie mode won't support full resolution.
The real problem standing in the way of this is the marketing division.
