Next year’s ‘must have’ feature? - an articulated LCD screen please
I've been waiting for this to come out to upgrade my 400D.
Ticks most of the boxes, more pixels (yes I know but occasionally they are what you need), much improved top end ISO performance (which looks really impressive in your sample shots) and an improved LCD screen.
It's a shame GPS tagging isn't there, but more a nice to have for me.
The one feature I was waiting for, which will probably make me postpone my upgrade, is an articulated LCD screen. I seem to spend a lot of lying on wet ground trying to get low level shots. The upgrade would get me live view, which might help, but I was really, really, hoping they would follow the Nikon D5000 and make the screen articulated. Maybe on the 600D...
