    Half sensor sized RAW pics for sRAW1 (7.3MP).... and 1/4 (3.X MP) sensor sized RAW pics for sRAW2. I have no idea why they would want something like this....kinda silly if you ask me.

    Think about this...with a product that has been anticipated for so long...would you just release it on your website or would you have some big event? I wouldn't get your hopes up just yet.

    Meanwhile, Nikon is just chugging along. Maybe the olympics was more than what it seemed... maybe it was Canons *passing of the torch* to Nikon, considering all the D3s and black (and sexy :naughty: ) lenses in the photog boxes. :run:

    I'm thinking so, especially with the D700 out and them catching flack for the past two years almost about not putting something else out.

    Yes, canon has been undone in a year of no updated 5d. Alert the presses and sell your stock kiddies.

    :hsugh:

    Not that Ive been able to find out from Canon employees.
    Seriously, I wish they would. It will happen sometime, but from what Ive been told, its not going to be this year. Could be surprised though. Never know.

    True. They could just be keeping mum until they surprise everyone, since everyone is expecting it anyway. Kinda like the D700. :run:

    While my sources say theyre not sure about a new 5d (though theyll admit it has been in development), they all say flat out that there will not be a new 1D any time soon
