"The D30 comes fully loaded, filled with features and functionality you'd expect of a camera teetering on the edge of wearing a "Pro" badge (and probably more deserving than some of those that do), add to this the fact that Canon threw a curved ball by using the first ever multi-megapixel CMOS sensor to be seen in a production camera and you can see why the EOS-D30 is significant.
The other thing that makes the EOS-D30 special is that it (like the Fujifilm S1 Pro) is helping to open up the "prosumer digital SLR" market, the retail $3,000 may not be considered cheap, but there are considerable numbers of non professionals who can afford (and no doubt will buy) the EOS-D30"
From DP review when D30 was launched. 3000$ at that time (2000)
Now in 10 years so much advance,
Can't imagine what will be tomorrow
Agree, I was very conservative on my pricing/specs, I think they could offer a lot more at $3000-$3500 for sure. But you know the "you want a pro body then buy a 1DSIII" crowd will disagree.
