Yep .. the party is over for Nikon camp.
Canon will release a 16mpx system very soon =)

That site is clearly flaky (they say that that they can't respond to any
questions and the information may disappear in a couple of days). But the
spec sheet doesn't look obviously faked, to my naive eye, anyway.

16.7 MP

Release in late November, 4 fps for 32 JPEG/11 RAW, no eye-control AF
selector, built-in AF assist strobe, RGB histograms, both CF and SD, support
for big drives, etc. etc. etc.

Other than the 16.7MP, I didn't see anything that surprised.

I find this most unlikely, given the recent release of the 20D.

What's that part about 140,000 Yen (USD1,275)? Is it a new wireless
flash transmitter?

If that brochure is a fake, it's a very good fake. The spec's sound
about right too, considering that Canon like to keep the models balanced
out against each other, while being a notch above the competition.

Close! Wireless file transmitter.

The camera itself is "open price" which means "closed price", i.e.
there's no official list price in the Japanese market.

Why would the $8000 full frame 16 mp 1Ds Mk II be any more of a threat to
Nikon than the $8000 full frame 12 mp 1Ds has been (which is zero)...?

"We know that Canon plans to unveil the next version of the 1Ds at
Photokina, but at the time of this writing we were not privy to any details
on its specs. But, unless another manufacturer pulls a surprise, the new
version of the 1Ds will probably be the star of the show."

I'm a Canon owner (10D) and I'll put my money on Nikon. Absolutely a
mistake for me to have shifted camps. Hold on Nikon... I'll return!

You have a price for a camera that hasn't been announced yet?

Cool.

That would explain why Nikon finally released a competitor, yep.
