    mmm...new camera smell. Well, I won't be getting this one...too expensive for me. Anyone thinking of buying one? The full frame is nice, but if you are going to spend this much, might as well go all the way and get a 1 series body (IMHO)

    This should get the market moving in the right direction though...a few more years and full frame DSLRs might just be affordable.

    Nice! :)

    12.8 megs. Thats more cards!!
    Sports shooters may not prefer this though due to the 3 fps.

    Mike, which 1 series were you referring to?

    Well the 1D Mark II is $4000...it's less MP but much, much faster FPS. But it's a 1 series body...built like a tank and fully sealed. That's just about the same price range. This is the ultimate sports camera.

    Of course the Flagship 1Ds Mark II is all around better and much more expensive, so I guess the new 5D may not compete in this price group.

    I didn't think that they would be changing the mount and switching to a new line of lenses...that must have been a rumor started by evil Nikon users... :lol:

    All I care about is the price of a full frame sensor camera working its way down! :cheers:

    I have been thinking about upgrading to the EOS-1D Mark II, because I would like to have a faster camera for shooting sports. But at the same time a full frame would be nice for landscape and everyday shooting. Now I do not know what to do or how long to wait next new model. :scratch:

    I would like a ff body with 1D's built and 5D's size! :)

    With their edge on tech, I wonder why they would not consider a digital rangefinder with an M mount. That would be THE tool! :)

    Hmmm....as long as the mount is staying the same it might be a good replacement for my 10D in a few years.
