Thanks for the memory requirements

Canon has unveiled the 5D Mark II SLR. Whoa: 21.1 megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor; ISO range from 100-6400, and expandable to 25600 (that is, shooting under appoximately no light); 1080p HD video shooting with live view on the back (3″ across), HDMI and USB connectivity…

Also welcome: a sensor-cleaning system (my 30D is constantly plagued with sensor dust).

$2700 or so.

No price yet from Amazon, but you can pre-order it.

    Well, that’s about $4k more than I’m ready to pay anyway, so the price could be anything. I think they’ll keep that price up as long as the demand is high and the old 5D is in the channel. When the old 5D washes through, they’ll crank the new one down into the high $2k range, then gradually drop from there.

    This is more like it
