Re: 50D has leapfrogged D300, not to mention D90

Here is what I think. Instead of offerring features like Nikon D300, Canon continues to focus on IQ and more of traditional camera. Why I think this? Canon is going to offer 5D MKII FF and 7D FF camera very soon. I heard the 7D will be priced at $1800 or less. Possibly the cheapest FF camera. D700 is currently selling at $3000.

I had Canon 40D and ordered Nikon D300, cancelled; ordered Nikon D90... Now thinking of cancelling also. If Canon 7D's price is true, I think I will keep 40D for now and wait for 7D. There is really no point of spending $1700 now for D300 or 1000 now for D90 if I can get a Full Frame 7D at $1800 or less in couple months.

What do you guys think?
