Re: D60? That name suggests lower model than D30.

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...)


I think Canon has five series of EOS SLRs:

EOS-1?, EOS-x (x > 1), EOS-x0, EOS-x00, EOS-x000.

'x' may be anything that has not been used before so in my opinion
EOS-(D)30 could be followed by e.g. EOS-(D)40. The newer camera the
better features it has, thus the whole EOS-(D)4xxx line would exceed
the current EOS-(D)3xxx line in features and functionality. The value of
'x' has no meaning or order in itself except that it identifies the "family".

EOS-1? is an exception for obvious reasons.

My opinion of course only. Any arguments against?
