just when I am about to pull the trigger on a 7D… there you go again Canon. Now i’ve gotta do my research all over. Thanks for trying to save me a buck… but simmadown now

Bit of a tangent here- in the US it’ll be named the “Rebel T2i”, most of the world will know it as the “EOS 550D”, and then Japan has the awesomely hilarious name of “EOS Kiss Digital X4” (the Kiss Digital X3 being the T1i).

Canon just announced the 550D which seems to contain the same sensor as the Canon EOS 7D and the same filming options (24, 25, and 30 frames per second for 1080p. 50 or 60 frames per second for 720p). It loses a processor (down from 2) and reduced continuous shooting from the 7D but will come at a lower price point.

I think it’s great if you wanted the video options of the 7D but weren’t terribly comfortable with the initial price.
