The good think is that the old 5d becomes cheaper so that student might afford it

I gotta be honest, having bought the 1DS Mk3 right when it came out and dropping 8 grand on it, having this come out not even a year later for a third of the price really pissed me off.

Re: New Canon 5D ...

I actually sent an email to canon letting them know how I feel. I mean Im all for technological advances, but this is getting ridiculous, it makes me wary to continue to invest in new technology simply becasue if its going to be obsolete within months, whats the point. Not saying that the 5d mk2 makes my mk3 obsolete by any means, but its certainly nipping at the heels for much less money, plus the f***in thing shoots HD video, which is pretty sweet. Now I love my 1DS, its a monster, Ive hammered nails into wood with it, Ive beaten the crap out of crack heads with it and it keeps shooting just fine, its got better battery, better AF, and is heavy duty, but could i opt to save the money and get a 5d mk2 , well, Id buy three mk2s and have extras shoudl I need.

1Ds mk3 is the king anyways. 5D mk2 is a toy, but a cool one. There is a big gap between 1 and 5 if we look at cameras body and feel.

That would be like going into a Porsche dealership, and buying a new 911 GT2 for $200k, and then 8 months later, they build a boxster that has 500 hp and the same brakes and suspension for $60k
