Canon just announced this baby on Feb 21, 2007.

* 10.1 MP APS-H size CMOS sensor; 1.3x focal length conversion
* ISO range of 50 to 6400, with Canon calling the latter "highly usable"
* Live view on a 3.0" LCD display; image can be enlarged 5X or 10X, just like on Olympus and Panasonic's live view cameras
* Dual DIGIC III image processors allow for shooting at a whopping 10 frames/second, for up to 30 RAW or 110 JPEG images
* Ultrasonic dust removal system (just like on the Rebel XTi)
* Upgraded shutter can handle 300,000 cycles
* Full manual controls (obviously) and 57 custom functions
* 45-point autofocus system
* New sRAW format produces smaller files with less resolution; don't worry, regular RAW iss till there
* Camera can be controlled remotely from a Mac or PC using USB or Wi-Fi. Apparently the live view works too.
* CompactFlash and SD/SDHC memory card slots
* Improved software package includes Digital Photo Professional 3.0 and EOS Utility 2.0
* Optional Wi-Fi via WFT-E2A adapter
* Uses new lithium-ion battery; 2200 shots per charge
* Ships this spring for $3999 (body only)

Finally, Canon has accessory to allow GPS data saved into EXIF during photo shooting (by using the new WFT-E2A adapter). It also features DUAL DIGIC III processors!!!! It's the faster EOS DSLR Canon has ever released (10 fps, 110 JPEG/30 RAW buffer).

Man, I want this baby badly!!!
