  1. This will be a “new” range meaning killing off the 5 series with an add on number moving away from the 1 series. Why though? This will compete directly with the 40D.
    I was hoping they go up to 16mp rather than come down but we shall see

  2. Hi Glen,

    It is definitely a FF DSLR, but price I am not sure…I just get the information from the net…can be rumor…or is rumor… 😀

    When? Only Canon knows…

  3. Awh, wish it was faster than that also w/ higher MP (preferably 16mp). I wish it was better than the D300. In a way it already is. Just hope that it has proper weather-sealing like the 1D-Series does. But I doubt it cause they have to protect it’s pro-line. Well maybe not cause the 1Ds Mk III has almost as much pixels as a medium-format DSLR. Anyways, lets just hope it’s better than it’s competitors.

  4. hi James,

    Above are all the information I have already. It shouldn’t be long before we hear announcement from Canon. Nikon is taking lots of market share from Canon with their new D300 and D3 now…

  5. Canon 7D or Nikon D300 …. would be the war.

    For Canon lovers it will be 7D anyway, but sure all semi-pros (less spenders) will do the comparison.

    To me 7D sounds like an greate option and upgrade, but of course I am Canon-loyal.
