ISO 50 : for the sunburst shot. The bad news is I really need bigger strobes.

Mark,

As there are many of us around who've more than occasionaly expressed interest in larger INON strobes, you really need to stop teasing us like this . . . :D

here is a screenshot of the 5D being on the european Canon CPS site. The site is down now, I wonder why :D ;)



On the site as well: EOS 1D MkII N and a great lens: 24-105 F4 L IS USM ;)

yes, my bank account will suffer too, I like this lens already from the specs only.

I think that you are off the mark here Lambis. Nikon never react to what Canon do (unfortunately for Nikon users).

But this camera would be fantastic for Canon UW photographers as it will solve the lack of a fisheye for less $$$ than a 1DS or 1DS Mk2.

I think the competition from the other side does matter. The price and feature and timing of the D70 was no doubt influenced by the 300D. It works the other way also. 350D owners can thank Nikon for forcing Canon to put out a full featured low end camera.

Going to full frame sensors is a major step for Nikon. I don't doubt that Sony can make a full frame sensor, but if they, Nikon, were to match Canon and put out a ~$4000 full frame camera. They will have lots of fast talking to do to people who bought a D2x for 5000 with all the DX lenses.

An example what Alex probably means: Nikon D2H anouncement, a few days/weeks later Canon has released the 1D MkII with twice the resolution and same frame rate of around 8fps. Meanwhile, the 1D MkII is Canon's "oldest" camera in the lineup and there has never been an answer from Nikon until today.

Pretty much the same with the D100, no response to 10D and 20D until now. And Nikon shooters really seem to wait for it. But they should have it in the pipeline finally I hope ;)

actually the 1D Series has never been changed that a new housing would have been required. Pro Bodies keep the same for a longer time. Therefore these housing are a quiet save investment too. ;)

You don't have to change just because they put out something new. I'm still happy with my 300D almost 2 years after I bought it.

Lambis, bite your tongue! Luckily I also still have 2 kidneys so if a D3X comes out, I might still have a mean to get one ;)
Also have a full set of liver so I can also part with my right lobe for another Subal housing!

So what is the advantage of this camera for underwater use over a 1Ds?

Main thing I can think of is the possibility of housing it a bit cheaper eg it might fit in a 20D housing without too much modification. Sadly no-one has developed a 'cheap' 1-series housing yet.

Other than that - I'm sure high ISO usability will be better (I miss that on the 1Ds, which is crap in this regard). It's got an extra megapixel. That's about it. So I'm not convinced about trading the 1Ds for a 5D, although I'm willing to be convinced.

The new lens looks sweet. I don't know that I'd actually buy it, unless the optical performance at the wide end is better than the current 24mm offerings, which aren't really great. I don't think I'd use IS alot in this focal length.

I could not think of any reason for an 1Ds owner to switch to the 5D. You would loose the better body.
But I think it's more an interesting camera to people who want full frame and higher resolution but not to spend 7000 bucks for the 1Ds MkII and its solid body.
A used 1Ds is an attractive option too and the used prices won't really raise because of the 5D.

Julian

edit: 5D housings might be cheaper but on the other hand 5D body won't stay the same over future generations as the 1D bodies usually do ... but your 1Ds Ewa-Bag might be compatible to the 5D too ;)

Lambis-

The exchange rate must be different in Greece.

My d2x cost an Arm and one Leg...

I see in your area they are going for one eye, lung and maybe a kidney....
