Hi Jerry, I can't be definitive until I've tested the new models, but your xxD series are semi-pro bodies with generally superior AF to the entry-level and mid-range ones. If you want to match or exceed the AF capabilities of your 20D and 30D, you'll need to stick with that series - ie, the 40D, 50D or 60D, or upgrade further to a 7D.

Gordon,

Many thanks for your reply. I was afraid that was the case. :cry: :) I guess I'll just have to save a bit longer for a 60D. :)

Kindest Regards,

Jerry

I was looking for a upgrade and came across Canon Rebel T3i announcement. Really seems like a good one with lots of fetures as I want, waiting for camera to release so that I can try it out. Thanks for the post.

I'm not sure about the rest of the word, but the version of this camera that is coming out in Japan (I think they're calling it the Kiss x50) comes in two colors: black (of course), but also RED.

...Oh, my bad, the Canon Kiss x5 is the 600D, while the one I mentioned above is the 1100D.

Anyway, you can check out the red 1100D/Kiss x50 here:

They have conducted the upgrade to bring new cameras out, and as the 550D has only been out a while, it is not really due for an upgrade just yet. A supposedly new camera with a different name.

I can't see consumers buying the 500D now so much when the newer models are out with the articulated screens and wireless flash control etc.

I doubt I would upgrade until the body got fairly old in any case.

I've got a EOS Rebel T2i(550D) and I'm pretty happy with it.
I really see no point in upgratind to the new T3i/600D.
I compared both cameras at Canon's website and apart from the screen, I believe that 90% of the features are exactly the same in both cameras. I couldn't compare the photo results from them to see if the T3i/600D has a better correction over chromatic aberration, which is pretty stressfull on the T2i. If I were buying a new one, it would be interesting to spend a little more for the screen or maybe would choose the Nikon D7000. Here in my country the price difference from the T2i and the T3i is excessively huge, so if you want to spend the same amount of cash, there are better options.

Do you think that this is useful so that customers can choose whether they want a screen or not though?

Will this replace the 550D perhaps, or at least, it's sales?

As long as there's a considerable price difference, the 500D will have a place for consumers who have a tight budget or don't feel they'll make enough use of the benefits the 600D to justify the price premium.

Not wanting to nitpick but isn't CA caused by the lens and not the body?

While CA is a lens created artefact, if you're shooting jpeg then it's up to the body what, if any, correction to apply to reduce its effect. Canon historically haven't given this option to correct camera jpegs.

This is definitely my camera. Since 350d every model from this series I do not like. But this one is made just for me.

The 350D has a seperate exif screen and feels slightly different than the 500D.

I find the 350D and 400D to feel tougher than the 450D and newer models.
The look of the 450D> is more pro though.
