Don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise.  You want this camera.  The Canon EOS Rebel T1i which was rumored for awhile, leaked by CNet yesterday and revealed this morning by Canon contains $1500 50D‘s sensor and 5D-Mark-II-like 1080p video capture (only 20 frames per second with mono sound – boo!) yet only retails for $899.  It also comes in the smaller Rebel casing so you can fit it in your purse European carry-all.
