    Here is a link to the "White Paper"....I don't know why they call it that.

  5. I'm totally in lust over the EF 85mm f/1.2L II USM. I'm getting that beast, and mounting it on my D5!

    It's in the link. $100 less than the 20D initial price...So that makes it $1400 or $1500 US (I think)

    I still love my 20D :) At least it isn't full frame and lower cost. I'd be annoyed at that - it's only really a few little tweaks though isn't it?

    There are a few nice features that people have been 'asking for'.

    The LCD is bigger and supposedly easier to view. It has a spot meter. ISO viewable in the viewfinder...although only when you change it. Bigger buffer.

    I don't know who in the world would want a direct print button, on this grade of camera...but it's got one.

    Ya, it's really only a few tweaks...they don't want to get too close to the 5D...to preserve their market seperation.
