I may have to buy a 1D MkIV before they discontinue it.

If I didn't have so much already invested in Canon lenses, I'd be seriously considering the D800.

where did you see the pixel pitch information? All I found was that it's a newly designed sensor. So maybe different coatings to help sharpness. and perhaps still have better pixel pitch then the outgoing model?



To be honest, I was expecting something more like 24-30MP for the new camera. But I guess they were concentrating on that high ISO ability as the priority.

The high video ISO should be handy to help people be able to close down aperture and get more DOF

I'd love to hear some reviews before stepping up and upgrading. But with the faster frame rate and better AF system along with rediculous amounts of ISO, it is tempting on it's own without even taking into consideration the pixel count.

oh, well, I've been pleased with the 7D AF system. So if it's anything similar on the 7D, I would be pretty happy with it on 5D.

we now just have to find out if the AF will do F8 with the 2.0TC and etc.

Nope. At least not as of yet.

Quote:
* One to five cross-type AF points at f/2.8, 10 to 20 cross-type AF points at f/4, and 15 to 21 cross-type AF points at f/5.6. (The number of cross-type AF points will differ depending on the lens.)

ooh. has two compression settings for video like the 1Dx. has a touch-sensitive jog wheel now so you can adjust exposure without clicks in your audio (however i never adjust aperture during recording, but shutter speed).

"This new model captures 1080p Full HD video at 24p (23.976), 25p, and 30p (29.97) fps; 720p HD recording at 60 (59.94) and 50 fps; and SD recording at 30 (29.97) and 25 fps, giving cinematographers and videographers more flexibility and options for video capture.

The EOS 5D Mark III includes new H.264 video compression formats to simplify and speed up post-production work: intraframe (ALL-I) compression for an editing-friendly format and interframe (IPB) compression for superior data storage efficiency, giving professionals options to help achieve their ideal workflow. Like the EOS-1D X, the 5D Mark III also includes two methods of SMPTE-compliant timecode embedding, Rec Run and Free Run, allowing video footage from multiple cameras and separate audio recordings to be synced together in post production."

"includes the ability to record video continuously up to 29 minutes and 59 seconds across multiple 4GB files"

"manual audio level control with 64 levels, adjustable both before and during movie recording."

"Multiple Exposure modes, in-camera RAW processing, a comparative playback function"

"61-point High Density Reticular AF System, originally introduced with the top-of-the-line EOS-1D X professional camera; include expanded AF coverage area, superior focusing precision and low-light sensitivity to EV -2, and greater low-contrast subject detection capability "

same metering system as the 7D, not the 1Dx.

"shutter release lag time has been reduced to 59 milliseconds"

"estimated retail price of $3,499.00; end of March 2012"

$2,000 for 5D2. $3,500 for 5D3. double that for 1Dx.

the release seems a little anti-climactic... nothing has wow'd me. I was hoping for a couple hundreds dollars off the rumored price.

agreed. at least it'll be available at the end of the month, supposedly.
although, a $2k 5D2 seems really really nice.

I'm willing to bet it would be pretty good video for you compared to the old one.
