Just when the Canon gearheads started to exhale over the Pre-PMA announcement of the Rebel XSi / 450D, word from someone “in the know” leaks info that Canon’s got a PMA surprise coming very soon.
It won’t be like a 5D replacement. Think of it more like a direct hit to D300. It’s just one step, not five, above 40D. (Via)
Could this be the fabled 7D, or perhaps a 40Dn? I expect something like the former rather than the latter if this rumor is legit.
Stay tuned for the latest.

Samsung Introduces Next-Generation DSLR at PMA 2008
GX-20 Boasts CMOS Sensor, Improved Shake Reduction, and Live View LCD
Thom Hogan has the latest word on Nikon’s PMA offerings. His thoughts:
Nikon apparently is scheduled to announced new Coolpix models, a DSLR replacement (probably the D40x update), and three new lenses next week . . .
