Digital SLR price trend

Following a link from the article in the previous entry I found an article about digital vs. film cameras. In the first paragraph the author talks about the change in resolution and price of Canon DSLRs. Here’s a summary:

Date Camera Megapixels Price
Late 2000 Canon EOS-D30 3.1 $3,000
Feb 2002 EOS-D60 6.3 $2200
March 2003 EOS-10D 6.3 $1500

It is interesting to see the price go down and the quality go up. Also the 10D goes for $1099 on the street. There is the EOS-1D which is a higher end camera for $6399 that is 11.1 MP.
