    If this is accurate, then the inside better be REALLY damn impressive, because the oustide sure as hell isn't. (probably fake though)

    looks like they took a 1d3 and slightly modified it. I'd be really surprised if thats how it ends up

    its coming, its just a matter of when and what it will include. But the 20dn (aka 30d) and 1ds mark II are in need of an update more than the 5d. I wouldn't be surprised if all 3 roll out this fall, but if any wait it would be the 5d IMO.

    The weak parts of the 5D are in the housing and AF system anyway, not so much the other guts. Frankly, I'd be happy if the just updated the housing with weather sealing, added 1DIIn AF, Digic III and a dust shaker and called it a day.

    The 30D replacement needs a ground up rethink though.

    to me the mark III feels like a big 5d- just a big plastic piece of shit. I don't like how it focuses, I don't like how it feels. The screen is > * but the resolution is shit so it looks like everything is out of focus when I check the faces of models.

    It's battery life > * , but good luck getting a second battery...One lasts for 2400 shots or something, i've yet to even go half way. Bought second battery on ebay for $130. Sensor cleaning FTW, never bothered even using live view..


    But i'm weird, my most favoritist thing I've shot with was a leaf 22 back, tethered capture 1. looooooooooooved how the camera (blad? I can't even remember) focused and felt..albiet slow...I love how the shutter sounds/feels in your hand- SHTONK. Leaf shutter in orig 1d also gave me wood.
