Rather than start a thread it is probably easier to just follow the thread on the following website. It tracks the latests rumours - these are not truths - and is one of the most compact readable opinion free sources available.
Canon and Epson Rumours
Thanks very much for the comment! and I'm so glad that -this- forum is distinctly not DPReview
I know that while some people find the rumours stuff very irritating... I also get a lot of mail from people who take the rumour pages I put together as a bit of light hearted diversion (I certainly do :-)
Some time ago I was sent some detailed info, and I was discussing with the source just what was meant just for me and what I could publish - we came up with this list of responses to the first post that mentioned it on DPR
#1 Have you seen this?
#2 What do they know
#3 Useful speculation
#4 Could you elaborate on xxx
#5 Jeez, cant you people just get out more
#6 You don't have to read it
#7 Those that really know can't say
#8 50D AF issues
#9 Is that all?
#10 I'm switching to Nikon
#11 Nikon will already have better cameras so why wait
#12 The new camera will back-focus
#13 I'm keeping my D60, and 1D till they sort this out
Anyway back to more serious stuff, like rearranging my printer/server room to have a 9600 and 7880 in it :-)
bye for now
