    What? No sink or laundry facilities?

    I bet all those people who upgraded from the D60 to the 10D are hopping mad. By the time the 300D is ready for mass release, the 80D 8-megapixel full-frame will be debuting at the shows.

    Just kidding, there's no 80D...but you never know, do you? Ahhhhhhhh. Makes you stop and think. Remember, when it comes out you can say "Geez, this guy in the forum mentioned this! How did he know?" Maybe he's a designer for the company? Nahhhh.
