Canon’s 400D 10.1 megapixel DSLR

Found at Engadget:

Canon US is still silent right this moment about the 400D DSLR, but it looks like Canon China’s spilled the beans on their latest full-frame 35mm digital camera. Or at least we think it’s full-frame 35mm, you never know with those translationbots that mention 35mm over and over; we also think it’s got a 10.1 megapixel CMOS, 2.5-inch LCD, 9 point focus system, 1600 ISO setting, DIGIC II processor, ultrasonic dust removal, and, of course the Canon EF lens mount (for which they appeared to have announced two new lenses, the EF 50mm f/1.2L USM, and the EF 70-200mm f/4L is USM). They’re still holding out on precisely how many Yuan it’ll set one back (and when can spend said Yuan), but something tells us by the time we wake up tomorrow morning we’ll have a whole lot more to work with.

Looking at the comments, its not going to be a full frame, still going to maintain the 1.6x crop factor. Basically, by the numbers, its going to be an upgrade to the digital rebel and is going to compete with the Nikon d80, and the Sony Alpha.
