I am dragging this out of the depth in light of the news about the EOS 60Da, not wanting to start a new thread.

Canon obviously thinks there is a sufficient market fo a specialized camera - at a premium price - for astro photography. Are there more people out there doing astro photography than people wanting a tool for high quality black and white work?

Possibly to convert a camera to perform as a high-DR Black and white camera may involve more than the changes between the 60D and the 60Da - especially you would need completely different firmware as opposed to a "tweaked" firmware (also what do you do with the WB-button?)

It seems that the camera makers have done their research and decided there is not enough market, although there is room for other specialized cameras. But I wonder if they are right ...
