    That's 1 day before IT show, sounds likely actually. But nothing is for sure I guess.

    Are DSLRs from outer space the same as those found on Earth?

    How abt waiting awhile..wait for others to get the camera then check for user reviews.
    Specs-wise u shd be able to compare the 2 camera side by side at dpreview

    What about servicing?

    Does TS have to come to Earth everytime the camera gives problems, or are there CSCs out there?

    Sorry to be critical... but if you don't know what is so "good" about the upcoming 550D, why are you bent on getting one?
    I'm pretty sure the price will be "good"... that's almost a certainty.
    Exploring! :)

    I suppose Canon has got service center out there, just that they charge much more for interplanetary warranty.

    Wonder if they get many requests for sensor cleaning, or do DSLR owners in space kinda just take off their lenses and jiggle around a bit?

    I believe that i need to start somewhere... have been looking at 500D but since 550D is coming out soon... would love to see and compare if it's worth to get it... =) ... As mention, i'm really new in this hobby...
