It's a pity they cold not make it a tad longer say 55mm or 60mm then it could be the perfect weather sealed standard zoom for 7D. Current weather sealed options are 17-40 L, too short; 24-105 L and 24 - 70 L, not wide enough.
Quotewhat I expect in a 5D MK III is a relatively minor upgrade.
Exactly. I've been thinking the same thing ever since I read the latest rumored specs.
I think this will especially be the case if the 5D MKIII is upgraded before the 1Ds. It seems logical that these two lines will diverge, with the 5D MK III serving as a basic full-frame camera for enthusiasts, portrait and wedding shooters and as a creative alternative for video shooters. I think they'll reserve the 1Ds for the high-end of the market. It will have the latest and greatest of everything and continue to be built like a tank. I expect the 1Ds will also have sufficient resolution to compete with medium-format cameras.
This gives Canon the ability to trickle-down some of the higher-end features into the next generation of the 7D. Again, creating further divergence between their top three cameras. (I am assuming that the APS-H format will be dropped when the new 1Ds launches.)
I don't understand why the burst rate is so low. 7 or 8fps would be glorious.
pushing 32MP is a lot of data, so burst rates that high would be pretty tough.
