    Nice, 10 fps and 300,000 frame shutter life, it's designed to shoot
    for about 8.3 hours without breaking ;-).

    So, any word on a 1Ds Mark III ??? :^)

    (I've budgeted for a 1Ds Mark II or whatever is top-o-the-line FF this
    year. Waiting anxiously to see if there's gonna be a new 1Ds version)

  7. Doesn't look like it yet. We won't know till the press releases arrive
    in my (or anyone else's) inbox.

    Cheers,

    When it comes to Canon announcements, 20 minutes is pretty damn good.
    ;)

    Not yet. I took a look at Canon's Japanese site, but they haven't even
    announced the 1DMk3 yet.
    Well, if the 1Ds3 has all the new features of the 1DMk3, it'll be
    worth the wait. :)

    10 fps, live preview, APS-H sensor, 10.1 MP. I like the noise reduction for
    shadows; I see no mention of anti-dust. :) New lighter body -- plastic? No,
    magnesium alloy.

    Really big LCD screen.

    110 (!)large fine jpegs...non-stop at 10fps is amazing (30 RAW).
    Bill Hilton and Roger (who just returned from Africa) are likely drooling
    more than those lions did, over that yummy zebra...

    Dual digic III processors? That's some very powerful stuff, and good for
    them for doing it. One of these days I'll have to spring for something
    along these lines for wildlife. I love my 5D, but for fast action, 3fps
    just doesn't cut it.
    10MP at 1.3 crop factor should still render quality pixels... They're
    claiming an entirely new pixel structure, so it will be interesting to see
    what it produces.

    ISO6400? 3200 that looks as good as current 1600?
    Good news.

    That's an interesting camera. I'm not sure I'll be able to wait until the
    5D or 1Ds mkII successors are released. My wife is excited about the self
    cleaning sensor. Live preview is interesting, too.
    The new 16-35 f2.8L II is interesting, too, but with an 82mm front element,
    filters are going to be expensive. It should, however, take care of the
    light fall off and softness in the corners that the present version has.
    (Take that, Rita!)

    Ya, they're using language like "vastly improved." -That means a major
    overhaul. Progress is good. -But I agree about the filters... I've always
    liked being able to have one polarizer fit a whole range of L lenses (24-70,
    24-105, 70-200, etc.)

    This also has me wondering if they might come out with a 100-400 replacement
    at f4...using an 82mm front element as they gather more light.
    If they release a sharper 100-400 (or 200-400 f4), I'll bite.

    Mr.T Guest

    Of course there will be, but anybody's guess when.
    So which will be next, a 30D replacement or the 1DSmkII replacement? :)

    I thought the 40D was already announced and it was the usual
    evolutionary improvement in the series. I'm much more interested in
    hearing about the 5D replacement.

  18. Lucky you. Out of my budget right at this moment, as I need to get a new
    laptop :(

    Cheers,

    Mr.T Guest

    Is it? Sorry must have missed it. And of course it will be the usual
    evolutionary improvement, I would basically expect a more rugged 400D.
    I think you will be waiting a bit longer for that. I think a 1DSmkIII will
    surely be first.

    C'mon Wayne, surely a RAM update and a defrag will keep the old laptop
    rolling along for at least another 12 months!!!! hehehe ;-)
    Go on.....you know you want it.
    Pointy.
