Rumors Of A New Canon Rebel / EOS 2000D & APS-C Compact
By Jason Heller, April 1, 2009 @ 01:00 AM (EST)
Although I'm always skeptical of any news I read on April fool's day, the following sound entirely credible and have been speculated for some time.
 
There have been rumors of a Canon EOS 2000D for several months now. This would be a possible replacement of the EOS 1000D / Rebel XS, which is now a year old.Nikon has a big press conference scheduled for April 14th, so the Canon releases can't be too far behind.
 
Apparently Canon is also shifting larger sensors into a new compact, (this is not the first such speculation), as evindenced by a cease and desist notice sent to a blogger at Nicephotomag.com who figured out that the new 270ex speedlite that was announced last week has zoom settings at 28 & 50 and must have been released in anticipation of a new compact with an APS-C sized sensor. He speculated that since the new Canon entry level DSLR's are using the same sensor as the 50D, that the Rebel sensor may be used for a new compact. From the strong handed take down notice he received, stipulating an information embargo until July, he must have been right.
 
Hopefully this is not an April fool's gag, in which case - you got me. Either way, the new Rebel replacement sounds imminent.
