Up Canon's Sleeve

There's a lot of speculation about what's up Canon's sleeve as far as digital cameras to be announced at the PMA expo.

I did have a good laugh at the people suggesting Canon will introduce a super-low-end SLR. Not because it's a stupid idea (it would even out Canon's line compared to Nikon's), but because the "pictures" of the rumored 3000D are poor Photoshop hack jobs on Canon's Rebel T2/EOS 300X film camera. Come on people; if you're going to take the time to clone in another "0" and add a "D," at least move the cable release jack and add some rubber flaps for the interface ports.

Not that this has stopped numerous people from going ga-ga over the "leaked" photos...

What I'm more interested in myself is the replacement for the 20D. What will Canonclaus bring us? Could it possibly be a weather-sealed midrange body which will woo me away from Nikon? (Please please pretty please?)

Whatever is announced, I hope it ends up better than the 20D. I've been hearing from a lot of people lately who have seen their camera launch off into oblivion with the shutter release either ceasing to work or the shutter developing a mind of its own and snapping madly away until the batteries are removed. Makes me glad I sat on an upgrade in spite of tempting rebates.

Only 10 more days until we know what's lurking in the wings...
