Re: EOS 1D vs. D60

I doubt it very much. The characteristics that make the EOS 1D special will not be matched in the new camera if the new camera is a D30 replacement.

The D30 is currently positioned at the low end of the DSLR market. As such, a replacement would also target that market. The 1D targest the high end PJ market with a high sequential shot rate (8fps), fast write times, good high ISO performance, great AF, etc... I doubt these things will be matched by the D30 replacement.

For those who asked, the PMA show is in Orlando in Feb of 2002. It
will start on the 24th and go on for 4 days.

Also keep in mind, if an announcement were made in Feb, the real
delivery would not really start until much later in the year. The
D30 didn't start delivering until Sept I think. Those that can wait
fine, in the mean time, the D30 is no slouch of a camera. I make
salable prints from it and it is amazing still to me.


Is my 2 week old EOS 1D going to be obsolete now?
