The last big Canon announcement was the low end Entry Level dSLR – EOS 500D / Rebel T1i – 15 Megapixels, now they have changed things up a bit and come out with a direct competitor to the Nikon D300/D300s.

It’s quite a beast, especially with 18megapixels, I think Canon finally released their 40/50D couldn’t compete with the Nikon D300 and now the D300s, so they had to step up their game.

Now they have with a high end APS-C (crop sensor) model in their line-up with dual Digic IV processors.
