New Canon 20D

  1. So will you buy one? Its official. Street price looks like $1,300 for
    the body. I think I will get one early next year, and the 10D will be
    the backup. Can't afford the mkII, and the 20D should be better for
    sports. It won't be mkII fast AF, but it should be better than the
    10D. The 25 frame buffer is also much better, the 10D takes a LONG
    time to write to the card if you fire off a few RAW shots in a row.

  2. The information is already removed on usa.canon.com. You didn't happen to save a pdf, did you?
     
  3. No, but the specs have been leaked also. Check out dpreview.com (10D forum), or the Canon SLR forum at Fredmiranda.com.
