There are dealers in Spain who are already selling 1000D's.
Prices in Spain are 499 body, 589 with the basic lens (18-55 IS).
These prices include taxes.

To compare, the 450D kit is selling by 775 (standard price) and the body alone by 640 although there is a limitted summer offer giving the kit for only 715.

According the review, for a MF Lenser wishing a non full-frame camera, this can be a nice option!
It's closer to the 450D than to the 400D...

(Pre)Reviews tend to talk about silly features and megapixels, which are hardly relevant. What we haven't been able to check yet is the sensor itself, although it seems that maybe it's just the one from the 400D.

Yes, but adding the liveview features and the contrast focusing, may add substantial value to the 400D sensor, a a lesser price...

I had no experience on the 400D, (I own a 350D) and the new features seem to fill the gap I was looking for. I know the camera case is not as solid and fine as the more expensive ones (they saved on the rubberish areas), but for an entry level digital MF SLR I think it can be great.

I must admit to having some interest in this new Canon.
I have been thinking about buying a S/H 20D just to fit a few new lenses. A body only sells for about 200 here but a new camera with better viewfinder and a low price seems a good option. I look forward to seeing them in the shops. If nothing else they will bring the price of the old 20 and 30 down even further.

the 450D is already 530 in Germany
I would like a extra smaller body and the 12Mp and viewfinder of the 450D seems more attractive than the 1000D

Thanks for the info, Poilu. Let's see which price will be sold the 1000D in Germany to compare. For a 100 difference I would probably go for a 1000D, but for a smaller difference, for sure the 450D would be the choice.

Rob, in Spain the 20D and 30D bodies S/H are being sold in between 400 and 550. These are much better cameras (to the people's taste) than the new cheaper ones. The low noise (ISO) sensors are very appreciated.
The last one I've seen on sale at the Canonist group in Spain is a 30D body under warranty until 2009, 550: http://www.canonistas.com/foros/showthread.php?t=85316
It has been sold in two days...
