Canon really disappointed me. I'd really hoped the Powershot Pro2 would show up to compete with the Sony DSC-R1 or Panasonic FZ-30. Bleh!

canon sleeps deep, what about a 10Mpix like the nikon for a reasonable price ? thats the way the things are going, just to do the 3 rd iteration of another 8Mpix stuff is out of time, the canon guys should listen to the stones.. your out of time my baby...

I think it is inappropriate to be quoting Stones' lyrics here, especially
since this is a serious situation, one for which it appears to me that I
cannot obtain any satisfaction ... hey, that's what I say.

I think the 17-55mm f/2.8 IS lens is much bigger news than the 30D body. Finally a versatile compact standard zoom that is great for low light work. I'll be interested to hear more about its performance, such as distortion and construction quality.

Personally -- I think I might defect to Nikon from Canon. I've been waiting for the right SLR since the first Rebel digital came out. A 10mp camera with full, or close to full frame is what they needed. The rumored 35D would have been the swan song, and I would have purchased it. I think "s" lenses are a transitional piece of equipment and will be phased out in a few years time.

Personally, why don't you just move on over to Nikon. I am sick of people complaining over Canon's not coming out with a bigger and better camera every 12 months. The 30D is still quality wise better than the D200. Just shoot some shots in low light at ISO 400 and above. Canon will have 2 new versions out before Nikon will have an update to the D200.
