    With rumoured replacements for the XD, XXD, XXXD to be announced by the end of the month at CP+ in Japan, I'm seeing 'sale/clearance' deals on the 'net for the:

    600D
    60D
    7D

    This gives the rumours more credibility, and provides an option for those wishing to purchase the current range, to do so at lower prices.

    Check your favourite online camera store to see what deals you can get.

    What features are on your wish-list for the new models?

    full-frame? 60fps HD? Digic V?

    If I were in the market for a new camera in these ranges, here's what I would want

    7Dii:

    New Sensor - not the same old 18MP
    keep 8FPS
    under $2000

    5Dii

    Better AF
    Similar price point ~$2500-3000

    70D

    seems like a pointless camera now since they appear to be cutting down the XXD lineup by removing all the features that set it apart from the XXXD/rebel line.

    650D:

    faster frame rate with Digic V, maybe 5fps
    Improved AF from 600D

    In other words you want the 650D to be the 70D :p
