  1. BTW: Where’s all that excitement for EF-S support coming from? Face it: So far Canon has only built consumer grade lenses for the EF-S mount.
    Don’t get me wrong, at least some of those lenses deliver a quite reasonable quality and they’re well matched to the market they aim at. But who really wants to mount such a lens on pro body for presumably +5k bucks when there are superior L lenses around?

  2. As Sebastian I wonder why we need EF-S lenses on the pro bodies?
    Is there any point to this I miss, or is it the same people who wants this that whants to remove the buttons an get a tuschscreen?

  3. These specs seem too good to be true for the 1D Mark IV. What would they have to improve on the 1Ds Mark IV then? Even more resolution ?! That would be insanity.

  4. Just an idea, but could the 4 card slots suggest parallel processing where even numbered images are processed on one processor/card set and odd numbered images are processed on the second processor/card set?

    i.e. each processor/card set is handling every second 21mg image at 5fps
