Canon' EOS 50D release date revealed and available for pre-order

Those shutter nerds that can’t wait to get their sweaty palms all over the latest 15.1MP Canon DSLR can now fork over their cash to Circuit City or Amazon for a pre-order. Previously, Canon hadn’t announced a launch date for their latest, but according to the Circuit City product page, it looks like that date is October 6. Should you choose to wait or not, the new camera will cost you either $1399 for the body only, or $1599 with a EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Standard Zoom Lens. Personally I would wait ’till I could poke and prod the new camera before I fork over my cash, but that’s just me.
