Canon to launch new Rebel by end of June?

New Rebel coming by June?

While far from official, CanonRumors has recently quoted an e-mail from an undisclosed source that has Canon launching its next-generation Rebel digital SLR camera, dubbed the EOS-500D, on June 23. The camera will reportedly ship bundled with a new EF-S mount prime lens, the 30mm f/2. This represents a delay of the launch, apparently due to Canon's weariness of the economy and "waiting to see what Nikon comes out with."

What else would come with the camera is uncertain, though the bulk of Canon's new 2009 cameras use DIGIC 4 processors. Canon last updated its core Rebel line with the XSi in January of last year and launched a lower-cost alternative, the Rebel XS, in August.

    weariness?

    They vary from wary to weary, sometimes teary and fear-y.

    I can relate..

    I'm "weary" of the current economic situation and all the talk of "stimulus"..

    can't wait for the StarBucks "instant coffee" so that I can spend less to stimulate myself every day..

    Video recording

    I'd be very tempted to upgrade my Rebel XTi if the new Rebel had at least 720p video recording (preferably 1080i).

    I meant 1080p

    Disregard my mention of 1080i in my last post. I meant 1080p and couldn't get the edit function to work.
