But with the different EOS series it's about the same

They start with xxD then they release the xxxD model at half the price....

That's exactly right. I bought the 300D (the first of the xxxD models). It was under $2000 (a bargin in the early days of consumer dSLRs); it's sensor was identical to the 10D except that some of the firmware features were crippled. Canon's philosophy was to offer a number of camera's at different price points to appeal to anyones budget. Fuji is doing the same thing except that nothing is "crippled" or left out of the firmware of the budget models compared to the higher end models.
