Re: This would fit some earlier rumors/comments by Canon

Previously, I recall comments from Canon that they would release
digital SLR's across the board, similar to their film range and
that there would be a digital Rebel. Quite possibly the D60 could
be their digital Rebel with a smaller consumer CCD.


Since this new camera was announced by Monte Zucker (albeit accidentally) on another forum website, I really doubt that he would endorse any camera more consumer-like than the D30.

I have a feeling this is a 6mp CMOS camera mid-range camera, better than the D30 but lacking the 45 autofocus points of the EOS 1D.

Are you sure you got the name right, Pete?

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...)
