Usually with Canon, the lower the number, the higher up the camera
is on the food chain. A D60 would indicate it's a less
feature-laden camera than the D30. It seems like a D20 or a D3
would follow Canon's naming ideology. (i.e. EOS 1, 3, 5, 10s, 30,
50, 300, 500, etc...)

You know, I thought the same thing...

It does hold true for FILM cameras, but as someone else pointed out (a reply to my exact same observation I believe, in this thread) that their DIGITAL cameras seem to count upwards as they get better. Of course, this holds true for their consumer-level cameras...

I don't think the D30/1D fall into this camp, so it could be a toss-up...
