Canon 20D

For months's forums have been rampant with rumors of Canon's expected replacement for their midrange digital SLR, the 10D. Well it is semi-official. Pictures from Canon's website have leaked and an announcement is expected by end of week.

It appears that it will be more of an incremental upgrade to the existing 10D, not a revolutionary jump forward. The 1.6 crop factor will be retained but augmented by a couple of new EF-S lenses that will allow better wide angle coverage with the smaller sized sensor.

Also expect 8.2 megapixels (up from 6), faster startup, bigger buffer and frame rate and more focusing points. It should be slightly lighter in weight as well.

Bob Atkins has kindly collected the rumors and known specs into a single article at his website. Read it here.
