Re: x0D line features

Perhaps the 70D will confuse Canon followers less than the 60D did! There was a virtually infinite array of names Canon could have chosen for a new camera that was out of step with the metal bodies and rather high framerate 10D 20D 30D 40D 50D. Instead they chose to name a plastic camera with a lower framerate and a hinged screen the '60D'.

60D has same or higher frame rate than 10D/20D/30D.  The segment is more defined by use of glass pentaprism, AF system, and QCD - all of which 60D shares with the x0D line - than by the composition of the outter skin.

Not that it is a bad camera, but it was out of step with what that established market was looking for, more something for the generalized hobbyist than those who put a few thousand frames into cameras at every event.

Pffft.   The difference between 3/5 fps and 3/6 fps is immaterial.  60D has same or greater shutter/mirror durability as any of its x0D predecessors.
