Canon EOS1D MkII - leaked pictures and specs??

Discussion in 'Canon' started by AU Digital Photo Of The Day, Jan 28, 2004.

  1. If the specs are right I will have one of these! :)

    From www.dphoto.us.... "Based on information leaked from Canon France, it
    seems the 1D succesor (Canon Eos 1D MK II) is just about here.Sporting a
    CMOS sensor and shooting up to 8.5 frames per second, the 1D MKII will
    replace the popular 1D. Also on the horizon are two new EOS lenses. The
    70-300 4.5-5.6 DO IS USM and the 28-300 3.5-5.6L IS USM."

    Pictures.... http://www.dphoto.us/forum/showthread.php?threadid=806

    In addition to the above I have heard that it will have a 40 shot
    buffer..... my fingers are crossed. :)

    A few downs from the 1D though - slower max shutter, slow max synch speed.

    The other things, is that the latest rumours suggest a price of $4200 USD,
    which would mean a price here of about $8400. This is dearer than the 1D
    (and more than the D2h.

    All I can say though, the more new models with more advanced features the
    better.

    Hmm... maybe I'm just jaded, from all the fake pictures floating around,
    but some of those pics look a bit dodgey to me (esp. the 'image
    stabiliser' badge).

    Scott.

    Sorry Russell,

    I find it very hard to believe, that this is the case - why implement DO in
    an el-cheapo lens? and the 28-300 as an L-series, I think NOT.

    I think we have a troll in the mist or is that a frog (since it should be
    from France ! Canon)

    I do hope for a new and improved 1D, to complement my other camera - though
    what I would like is a Digital Panoramic 617 style camera, that would be
    great!

    best regards

    Henrik

    My main gripe is still there, the image sensor needs to be the same size as
    a 35 mm film negative. Makes it too expensive to get the wide angle lenses
    to compare with film.

    Henrik,

    why would you doubt the 28-300L IS as an L lens, especially given the
    history of Canon with the 35-350L.

    I on the other hand, don't know whether to believe or not, but it seems,
    that the original files were located in an "uploads" directory on the canon
    france web site. It seems odd to me that a company would make their uploads
    directory publicly viewable, but Canon France does. Maybe someone noticed
    that and took advantage of a security problem. If it is publicly viewable,
    did that make it publically writeable too?

  10. That's when you need to shell out for the 1DS..... but for the sports
    shooters the x-factor comes in handy.

    because they already have the 35-350L lens - which is very popular, give it
    IS, maybe, but I really don't think they would. What really surprised me, or
    should I say made me think it was a troll, is the Do in the other lens - it
    is just too bloody expensive to make. There would be a longer lens made with
    this (add to the 400f/4LDOIS line) before they put it in a consumer lens!
    Just my $.02

    best regards

    Some good thoughts there, but then again the very first lens with IS was the
    consumer 75-300.

    In all honesty I don't know whether to believe or not, and quite frankly
    don't care, as neither lens interests me. A non L, 300 2.8 for sub $AUD800
    would be lovely, but I guess that is just never going to happen.

    Does that mean your old 1D is taking "pre-bids" on the replacement ? I know
    someone after a 1D.

    Kibo informs me that "AU Digital Photo Of The Day"
    <looks>

    Oh my god! - 8 megapixels at 8.5 frames per second into a 20 shot RAW
    burst buffer?

    1/2 second startup time?

    <wipes drool from shirt>

    Bastards!

    Um. On a *totally* unrelated subject, a friend of mine was just
    wondering if anyone knows what the going rate is for cute toddlers on
    the overseas adoption market?

    Bring on a nice 'economical' second hand 1D I say.
    eBay is a good place to start ...

    Why is everyone always surprised about the price of pro bodies?!

    Fair question. I think it's because the 10D and the 300D has fooled
    everyone into thinking that ALL camera prices are down, not just
    prosumer models. (Before anyone screams, I've got a 10D that I'm very
    happy with.)
