Re: Canon not axing Rebels
In reply to Midwest, Mar 29, 2013

I like the rebel name, and wish they would assign names to the other lines as well. Especially as the high end namespace is getting crowded. We have a 5D a 6D and a 7D, which are totally different models, but the 40D 50D and 60D are different versions, as are the 300D,350D,400D etc.  If I were doing the naming, it would be a model name, followed by the year. The rebel 13, for example. The number scheme works and makes sense, but, explaining it to someone who has never seen it before isn't fun, and it feels like it ran out of space. If not now, what happens after the 90D?
