I went to the Arri NAB-pre-show and again went by there booth at NAB. From the outside the D-20 and the D-21 are identical, exempt for the sticker. All the changes and upgrades are internal. A couple of Hardware components and a total new Software package. The biggest difference is that the chip's sensitivity got increased to 800 ASA.
Beside some other improvements it features Defect Pixel Correction, etc.

Basically it's the same Camera for our purposes, and all D-20's will be upgraded to D-21 specs, so no more D-20. The Camera remains only for rent in the American and European markets... but will be available for sale in India and Asia...

It's still a stepping stone and is not in it's definite shape and form. It's a testing platform, I was told last year that the final digital Camera would look more like the Arricam LT... once they where happy how it performed.

So much I found out...
