Some basic math, to try to predict the price of the Canon EOS Rebal Digital...

The list price of the 10D is $2000, but I see it selling for $1400. The list price of the Rebel is $900, so...

1400
------
2000
=X
-----
900


so...

1400 * 900 = 2000 * X

Meaning...

1260000 = 2000X

Then...

1260000
---------
2000
=X


Which leaves us with...

630 = X


So, if the pricing ratio stays the same, the new camera (body only, lense sold seperately) will sell for $630. It will use all the old EOS (EF) lenses, and the new EF-S series, which give you wider angles on the digital camera.

When I see point and shoot digital camera's going for $800 street price for 5mp, and lower quality pictures, I wonder how this will shake up the digital market in all areas.
