They have a pretty high success rate in getting advance information that
turns out to be accurate. According to their sources, the upcoming 60D will
have movie mode.

But it isn't a normal video camera by any means. I'm not currently
convinced that the ergonomic (form factor) difference is significant
in use, but I'm not convinced that it isn't either.
Hello, folks, To all who responded, here and off-list, a big thank you. It helped me a lot in my choice. Now, if I may, another question: it seems imposible toMessage 3 of 5 , Jun 8, 2009View SourceHello, folks,
To all who responded, here and off-list, a big thank you. It helped me
a lot in my choice. Now, if I may, another question: it seems
imposible to find this lens here in Brussels :-( , and, as I'm going
to spend the next weekend in Paris, I'd like to know if and where I
can find it. Does any one of you Paris panographers know it, please?
Of course, if we can arrange a meeting it would be nice too, but I
can't say anything for sure, as it's a trip for the wife, and as
always she's the boss ;-) .
Thanks a lot in advance,
