    Just back from the Science Museum and the launch of the new Canon Gear.

    First up was the new Canon EOS 450D
    12.2mp
    3.5 fps
    3" lcd
    live view with contrast AF
    14 bit processing
    new grip and new battery

    Feels like a very nice camera, much better than the 350D/400D body

    Canon 200mm F2 IS (pictured with 1D mkIII)
    very light weight and very fast focussing

    800mm F5.6 IS is pictured in the background, none in the country at the moment so couldn't have a play

    And just for fun and I really want this in my front room ;-)
    The 600mm F4 and 1D mkIII just felt sooooo right in my hand :lol:

    The thing that gets me is why the hell they don't bump the fps on the 450D. I was hopeing for something in the 5fps range. It is Digic III and the 40D can shoot 6.5 so what is the deal with the 450D. I have ZERO incentive now other than live iew to seek out the 450D over my 400. I will just wait and upgrade to a 40D in time...

    well if they made it 5fps why would anyone buy the 40D??
    People would just complain that the 40D isn't fast enough. It the cameras get too fast they become classed as camcorders then would have a big tax slapped on them pushing the prices right up.

    What no new 5D? What are they doing? I have been waiting for the new one. Do they roll out any others, or it that it for their new output?
    I can't believe it, I thought with the new Nikon D300 that they would have to bring something new out. Pah!

    I've heard that there may be another new announcement of something, near the end of February. If not then, it will probably be in the fall.

    Feb and Aug are normally the times for Canon releases, this one was a few weeks earlier than normal.
    They might surprise everyone at PMA with a 5D replacement or it'll be in Aug

    the simple fact is that Canon don't really need to replace the 5D as the nearest competitor is the Nikon D3 at over twice the price.

    But one thing I do know it that you should ignore anything a dealer says about new gear coming in a months time. Most of the Canon staff there today didn't even know about the 450D until yesterday.
