New Canon DSLR Coming March 25th?

in Canon

I’ve seen this date in the rumor mill a couple of times now, and it now appears to be in full swing with a press conference scheduled by Canon for March 25.  No details on which one it might be, but popular opinions suggest either a Rebel series update (EOS 500D) or a 1D Mark III update.

Fire away with your thoughts or derogatory remarks (just keep it clean) in the comments below.

I expect a beefed up 450D (500D) with Video and a price reduction for the 1000D.

And no, I’m not shooting with Canon and not with Nikon.

In fact the PMA was just bashed by the main manufacturers, the US market is not rentable actually and it’ll be not crazy to think about a retirement of Canon from the US this year to back to the old way :

Seems odd to wait until after PMA to announce. Oh well. At least they are guaranteed all the attention that way…

and it was the 450d beefed up with 3 extra megapixels and a few other minor tweaks. If you have the 450d theres no need to upgrade but if you don’t have a dslr, this is a great camera for beginners and intermediates alike.

I’m rather a bit frustrated that Canon dealers are not that sensitive to queries from users. I’m a happy Canon user but unfortunately Canon Singapore hardly replies to my queries regarding Canon cameras and accessories.

I would request Canon corporte head quarters in Japan to set up a customer/user queries reply section somewhere else.
