    MSRP $3499, available June 2


    I would rather keep my D300
     
  3. Sounds good. I'm pleased to hear about the weather-sealing.

    I'm mostly interested in the range of the sensor. Now, THAT seems interesting.

    Seems like it might encroach on the 1Ds, but I won't complain. If it has the 'same weather sealing as in 1Ds MK III', does that mean it has a vertical grip built in like the 1Ds MK III? Either way, with 6fps, full frame, and High ISO capability this is something I'll put a deposit on today.

    Well, let us face it, there have been many so-called informations leaks at Canon and Nikon over the last years ;) None of them really did prove to be genuine in the end ;)

    Now, the 5D not having that bulky vertical grip, was actually one of the reasons for me to decide for that camera ;)

    you're right about that, but at least there is hope!

    A guy from canon on this video a couple of months ago (@ pma's)said the 5d had no direct competitor so they didn't plan to have a successor , which made me sad, since the 5d it's kinda old, and i like it but there are some things that I'll like to have or change, if i have the chance to buy it.
    The other thing is that i don't want to buy the 5d and a couple of months after read some info about the 7d is out!
    hehe that's i guess more scary.
     
  12. On the internet?!?! I consider it confirmed when the camera is for sale at B&H, and reviewed on DP Review.
