Today, Canon finally announced the successor to the 5D, the EOS 5D Mark II. The 5D Mk II is a full-frame digital SLR featuring a 21-megapixel CMOS sensor, full 1080p HD video recording (H.264, with sound), and DIGIC IV processor. It shoots at 3.9 fps continuous, and has a buffer of 13 RAW frames or up to 310 Fine JPG frames. It doesn’t look like the 5D Mk II is fully weather sealed. Underwater photographers are hopeful that the camera will fit into existing 5D housings.
Canon also announced a new 24mm f1.4L USM lens (a ground-up redesign) that is weather-sealed.
The 5D Mk II is priced at US$ 2,699 / € 2,499 / £ 2,299.
