Have to admit that just about any pro level camera that Canon comes out with - I'm going to buy
. Unless of course it's not full frame!
So a 1D Mark V at a competitive price will make everyone happy ($3,000) - OK maybe a dream. Let's face it, we all want the new 5D MK 3 to beat the Nikon D800 in specs (36 MP) and in price! Just look at the new Sony 24 MP (not full frame), 12 fps, articulated LCD, GPS $1,500 & 16-50 f/2.8 for about $650 (it's no L lens but then again $$$).
This all raises the bar for Canon - they're not idiots or we all wouldn't be using Canon equipment.
Here's what's important to me: 24+ MP, 19 + point cross type focus, outstanding metering options, auto ISO that's user selectable, be able to connect to computer to set programmable functions of the camera, user selectable control on all limits (tv, av, ISO, HDR), GPS (this is optional - but Sony has it!), Radio control everything - flash ETTL, wifi (damn iPhone has it), 8 + fps, sky high native ISO 51,200 (awesome), in camera HDR (?), definitely more bracketing options, dual slots (CF & SD), Dual DIGIC V, full Video features, articulating LCD, sigh - call me a dreamer!
This camera will exist - it's just a matter of who puts it out first. Hopefully it's Canon and hopefully it's the next one announced and hopefully under $4,000.00
Excuse the smiley faces!!
