Sorry to disappoint you, but I understand that the new EOS D60 camera
will sell for around the same price as the EOS D30. I have just uploaded
a detailed specification for the new camera to www.eos-magazine.com
IMHO, no. Not worth at this point of time. Guess I will stick to 3MP for the time being first. But for studio photographers, it is a diff ball game altogether. 6MP would generate excellent pics at A2 size I think. The potential for great portraits is there...
Basically they are using the same AF module as the D30 only with increased sensitivity at low light from 0.5EV to 2EV. Also, the AF points light up...other wise, very much the same. Wait for further reports and reviews to come in...then we will know the truth.
