If the rumors turn out to be true I can see that a lot of people may go for the 5DIII - which might be a great opportunity to pick up a second 5DII body. I'm personally happy with it as is.

I wonder what Camera's Nasa uses ?
Just to stir the mud a little more, the G12 will sync without using HSS at 1/4000th although for some odd reason not with the ST-E2 where it's a little slower. It's left me wondering the kind of shutter the G1X is going to have, focal plane as per the NEX or electronic like the G12.
Does the G1X have a focal plane shutter? My guess based on the above is no - a 1/4000 sync speed means electronic 'curtains'.
I used to have a Sony compact that also synced at 1/1000s and froze action like nothing else. I understand how the shutter of an SLR works, but I have never thought of what the negative sides to an electronic "curtain" is? Can someone fill me in? Why doesn't the slr's use electronic "curtains"? You could still have the mirror and everything, right?
I've also got the 1510, and it's great. Originally all it had was just a tag with my last name. Then one of my kids decided to decorate it for me with a sticker, so I stuck a few more on it. It's not crazy yet, but as I find stickers I like I'll continue to adorn it.
The engraved tag should read:
Property of Canon, Inc.
Contains new prototype dSLR
DO NOT OPEN
Personally, I didn't bother. I have seen other black Peli cases while traveling, so some sort of tag would be a good idea. I got yellow cases, and other than mine, I've never seen a yellow one on a plane. Might be because there's no yellow 1510 - I have the equivalent Storm im2500.
I do get your handbag analogy - I clearly remember the camera bag/case purchase that put me ahead of my wife's purse count. However, ambitious and competitive as I may be, I have no hope of outnumbering her shoes...
screen does not look 4x3...looks like a 16x9 or 16x10. [...]
Dear God no, not I/R, should be radio
Yep... I also see a MFN button which I want... So no flash... I hope it has an IR flash commander...
So I was in the local store today and was contemplating spending some money!
Am planning a trip through Yellowstone and Colorado by motorcycle this summer and was thinking that I'm missing an ultra-wide angle lens. Was thinking about either the Canon 10-22 or the Tokina 11-16. Then I got "squirrelled" by cameras. My simple logic was: spend money on a lens, but still have the 'old' camera, or buy a new camera that would allow my current glass to provide me the ultra-wide range. So looked at the new 5D mark ii and also a used 1D mark iii.
Any suggestions or advice?
Currently: 30D; 17-40L; 70-200L f4
Hi I'm considering purchasing a 5dmk2 as a third camera since the prices are really good at the moment, but it seems to get a lot of bad reviews regarding it's auto focus. Can you 5dmk2 owners share your thoughts and is the AF really that bad. I would be using it for weddings and portraits.
I recently sold off all my nikon stuffs and ready to jump to canon because of the varities of lens available from Canon and also it's seem more affortable and more highly rated as compared to nikon. The way I see it, if i continue with nikon i couldnt afford those "N" lens as they are way over my budget. Whereas with canon, i could start of easier with the 24-105L f4, the 17-40L f4 and maybe the 135L f2 in near term.
My situation is kinda epic as my friends pointed out, i was so sure i'm going for the 5Dmk2 and at the same time a used 24-105L mint condition happen to passby and i got it without a body in hand. This all happen in Dec, and by Jan i'm ready to get my 5Dmk2.........but to my bad luck, my iMac logicboard decided to quit and can consider my iMac is total. The replacement of the logicboard is as close as a new iMac. Therefore i have no choice but to forego the 5D 1st and get my computer sorted out. Where as the same time i am also like some, having the dilemma whether i should wait for the mk3.
