likewise for HD.
For me i dun follow technology unless i already own existing technology to follow it.
If i had a HT tv and player, of cos i go for 500D straight, cos i will be eager to shoot video and play it on my tv.

So i rather spent less now and more later to upgrade to a better body in the future(and perhaps by then i got myself a HD or even better quality tv, then i match the new body technology with the then tv
