There is apparently a shortage of Canon EOS 50D in Hong Kong and Canon Hong Kong does not have any new stock of this camera. There is a strong rumor going around the dealer circle that a 50D replacement maybe coming soon and the 50D will be discontinued. I am not sure how much of this is true, so don’t take this rumor as anything concrete. However, I would not be surprised indeed if a 60D is coming soon since Canon seemed to have moved to a 1 year product cycle for the xxD and xxxD series. I guess we will know in a couple of months.
