[font color=\'#000000\']Maurizio, your complaint is just plain silly. How has the announcement of the 20D affected your camera? It hasn't. Your 10D (and mine) work just as well as they did before the announcement. The reason Canon is THE dominant player in the camera marketplace is because they regularly introduce new models that significantly improve on their predecessors, in image quality and all-around performance. Some D30 owners complained like you when the D60 was introduced, as did D60 owners when the 10D was introduced. But the fact is that photographers in general benefit greatly overall by this rapid advancement in technology. So what if the resale value of the camera has dropped? Go take some pictures; you only lose money if you sell the camera at a loss. Besides, it will likely be a few months before the 20D is available in sufficient quantity for you to actually buy one. So the choice is simple:
A. Buy today's model and know it will be overshadowed by tomorrow's model, use it and make some money and increase your skill as a photographer, or
B. Sit on your butt and wait until 20X6 when they finally build the perfect camera that can't go any farther technologically, but you're too old and senile to care anymore. Or maybe dead.
I choose A. And I also own the $7000+ 1Ds, which is likely to be replaced by a new and improved model at Photokina. Don't be mad at Canon for improving the options photographers have when buying a DSLR, that's just as stupid as getting mad at Intel every time they introduce a new and faster CPU chip.[/font]
