Canon EOS 450D / Digital Rebel XSi

Canon has also announced a new compact digital SLR, a 12.2 megapixel EOS 450D (Digital Rebel XSi). It boasts various improvements and enhancements over the EOS 400D. The estimated list price is $800, and its main features are:

* 12.2 Megapixel CMOS sensor
* Canon’s EOS Integrated Cleaning System
* 3.5 frames per second
* 3.0” LCD with Live View shooting
* 9-point wide-area AF system with f/2.8 cross-type center point
* Picture Style image processing parameters
* DIGIC III image processor
* Digital Photo Professional RAW processing software
* Fully compatible with all Canon EF and EF-S lenses

The interesting improvements from my standpoint are the spot metering (4%) and the Live View. The fps rate is 3.5 and the FoV is 1.6

The 450D is okay....but let's be serious, where's the successor to the 5D?
