Just noticed the Optura 50/60s on CanonDV.com

Forgive me if I got left out of the loop but since I don't notice any other posts I'll start the first.

Just noticed there are two new Opturas out. When did this happen, and what has changed/improved? I assume that these will replace the 30/40 series.

How about that -- they've been announced! Guess I'll have to update the ol' Junior Watchdog pages.

Not too many changes; I'll gather some notes for y'all. Price drop of about $100 is the biggest thing.

Xiaoli, thanks for the heads up!

It looks like, in addition to optical stabilization, both models also have AV(aperture priority) and TV (shutter priority) modes. Plus a 9 point auto-focus.
