I'm expecting a 10MP 40D and a 22MP 1DsMKIII at PMA too. It's definitely about time a camera company began to improve on the flow of image data.

Not only that, but they made night and day improvements with the body. Design and usability is so much simpler - more like the D2x - which I'm very happy about. Anybody who has used a previous version of a 1D will know exactly what I'm talking about. The interface was "retarted" especially compared with a Nikon. Now it looks as if most all of the things I miss from my D2x have been addressed and then some.

the 10fps is a status thing. No way in hell do 99% of people need that kind of speed. I will appreciate it's speedy double tap ability though.

I'm also glad that they changed the battery... looks exactly like the D2x battery (in function, features, design, and proportion) which is a very good thing. It weighs 7 ounces less than the previous 1D bodies and is shorter in stature. It's literally a Canon D2x, and I'm getting one (or two!)

Yeah, if I had 4G's I'd say this camera has it all. 10MP is enough for me. Guess I better start saving. I agree, it's a Canon "D2X". The battery change is finally a reality. I've absolutely loved the 1.3 FOVEF (FOV Factor) because it's not quite full-frame, but giving you a little extra zoom, and while at the same time, not making wide angle lenses difficult to shoot with.

This is a camera I'm seriously thinking about saving for. I'd manage with only a 50mm 1.8 on that thing for a year if I had to! In fact, with 10MP and the type of quality of the images, I could easily crop a 1DMKIII image and make everyone think I had a 70-200mm. :D

I may post an op-ed piece on the camera's changes. Of course, everyone else will but it's just me over here!

If you want to add a write-up, Matt and/or Joe, let me know. I can post your comments page with mine for a more comprehensive opinion piece of three different POVs.
