    I'm looking to replace my Canon DSLRs in the new year (sooner is the price
    is right) and I came across the Kodak 14 megapixel camera which accepts
    Canon lenses. How smart are kodak? Make a camera and let others bother about
    lenses! Anyway, they're $3500 at B&H. There is also a $1000 rebate on offer
    too so the price is well under a Canon 1D mark II. On the surface they look
    like something I should explore. Has anybody got any experience with these
    cameras? Shutterbug articles speak highly of them.

  2. Are you taking about the DCS Pro SLR/c?

    The body is made by Sigma (and based on the SD10), so as an SD9 owner
    you'll feel at home with the controls. A number of people don't like
    anything made by Sigma, but I've noticed that you are not among them.

    The full frame CMOS sensor is Kodak's own, and is of the conventional
    bayer type. It greatest weeknesses are low burst rate, high ISO noise
    and no AA-filter, which makes it prone to moiré.

    I assume you already has looked it up at dpreview, if not:
