    only problem with that, its the same size sensor with 5 more megapixels in it. a leaf would sitll look better....but still..fuck me thats a lot of reslution!

    kinda strange that amazon has that up before canon has even anounced either of those products?

    Not really. Canon (like most other manufacturers) provide major reseller partners with product information just before the product launch announcement. That way the resellers can prep their sales collaterals (website, catalog, etc) with the information and have it ready for simultaneous announcement with the manufacturer.

    Amazon just fucked up and let it leak. What this means is that the info is going out to resellers and the formal launch is imminent. So the Canon press event in London this week is probably for BOTH the 1DsMIII and the 40D.

    What's interesting is that there have been a lot of 40D leaks but very few 1DsMIII leaks. I wonder if Canon hasn't been allowing that intentionally to draw attention away from the 1Ds....

    no digic 4/?

    live view, aka gay

    lets hope that huge screen isn't like looking in a mud pool (1DMKIII!) and that the camera can even focus (1DMKIII!)


    Anyway who cares, I'll let you know how it is when its in my hands.

    it includes auto high pass sharpening and shadow/highlight adjustments. And it makes fat chicks skinny, and chinese girls get round eyes and not flat little boy bodies. It also comes all over your face and yells STROOOOBIIIIST then explodes if you shoot with the on camera special flash.

    just like it does on p&s from what I've head.

    no autofocus (cause the mirror locks up for liveview) but you can manually focus with like 5x and 10x digital zoom (LOL). That's at least what I think of what I've heard about the mark iii, which has the same feature.
