    Just read that canon announced a new addition to their 1D line:
    http://www.dpreview.com/news/0702/07022208canoneos1dmarkiii.asp

    It's got 10mp with 10fps shooting speed, which is a pretty impressive rate. They've also given it a 3" LCD. :drool:
    I'm not quite sure where it's supposed to fit in with their lineup, though; perhaps as a replacement for then MkIIN? Or is it supposed to be its own thing? It's the same price as the N was when it came out, I think.

    Discuss.

    Just noticed it has optopn of live view, well thats gonna need a lot of batteries..

    Also you can pick up a 5D for that money, and get full frame 13.3 megapixel ( I believe )

    Does look a nice piece of kit though

    Pre-PMA 2007: Canon has today announced the latest generation of their EOS-1D series. The Mark III has a ten megapixel APS-H (1.3x FOV crop) CMOS sensor and can shoot at ten frames per second.

    its the replacement for the 1D mkIIn and I can't wait

    not really the old 1D mkII takes the best part of 2500 shots on one battery, at least mine does, and the mkIII uses a new battery, very similliar to the Nikon D2X battery

    watch this space and YES its full frame

    The 5D, while nice...is not a 1 series camera and is meant for a different purpose. The 5D is only 3 FPS and this new camera is a blazing 10...clearly meant for the professional sports shooter.

    I love PMA season.

    Crazy. The thing I hate about the 1D's though is that there are practicly no buttons on it like the Nikon's. It just looks like there are too many things that either take 2 hands to operate or you have to go through the LCD. The rear's of the D200, and D2's have a huge amount of dediacated buttons and switches on them so you can avoid the LCD.
