    From the first page of the 5D Spec PDF. What spec do you think it has?
    I guess just a minor update like D70 to D70s, possibly won't be full
    frame. Plot is getting thick.

    Someone got clever and used the "liquify" feature in PS to create it
    out of a 20D. :)

    Funny, all three Canon bashers have been captured.

    Funny as in "ha-ha" funny, or funny as in "queer" funny?

    I don't bash Canon all that much. Just the lamers who think they have
    somehow bought into a better line of products when they proudly announce
    how "superior" Canon is. Fortunately I have extensive experience with both
    systems, unlike most other protagonists on these forums.

    At least a civilized person, like me, don't bash Nikon.

    The PDF is a HOAX and the mark II N is also a hoax. It is unlikey Canon
    would use a KM Trademark

    You can't trademark "5D." Too broad.

    "EOS 5D" or "Maxxum 5D" are a different matter entirely...

    There are at least two trademarks 5D registered on the USPTO, neither is for
    a camera. Why would Canon then chose to call a camera after a known
    entry-level product. 5D has been known as long as the 7D (also 9D) Is Canon
    marketing really that bad?

    What is happening on August 22, 2005? There will be a Nikon D200 announced
    sometime this year, but I don't see why they would issue a "full-frame" dSLR
    and a mk.II N which would presumably be a 1.3X FOV. Somebody is pulling
    someone's leg on this one.

    I'm not holding my breath. It would be interesting if a full frame dSLR
    came in at 12 megapixels and under $5000. Certainly would put a crunch
    on Nikon to go full-frame.

    We are "pretty" certain Canon can deliver a full frame dSLR at 12
    megapixels and under $5000 (maybe be even $3500). BUT for a 1DMK2, it
    has to be able to handle at least 8.3fps. It might not yet be possible
    with the current DIGIC II processor. Is DIGIC III coming up? My guess is
    it'll be just minor update. The next 1DMK3 will likely merge 1Ds (full
    frame) and 1D (fast frame rate) using the D2X technique.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see something along those lines.

  14. Um, the Kodak DCS-14n was there several years ago. In Nikon mount
    first (though they did do a Canon version too, later). 14 megapixels,
    in fact.

    Yeah, but it sucked compared to the 1Ds. Moire, noise, color balance.
    Plus, it wasn't built like a pro body.

    NIKON actually does make nice dSLRs, they should make one full frame so
    they can actually take advantage of the strongest area of their lens
    lineup: the wide angle zooms.

  16. Well, yes, I do know people said all those things. It sounded to me
    like people were quite happy with it as a studio camera, and not so
    much in other uses.

    Anyway, it didn't seem to be so bad that we should pretend it didn't
    exist.
