Upload & Sell: Off
I bet he said that the 5D2 will cost what a 5d did at release, have faster af than any Canon, better fps than any sports camera, use CF and SDHC or whatever at the same time, be weather sealed, have sensor cleaning, iso 50-25600 with an option for 51200, +/-50 MA for lenses, 1500 shot battery life, with a built in battery grip, 3 extra batteries, kitted with a 10-300 f/1.2 IS DO VR DX IRS CIA lens, and a 56k modem.
These rumor threads are ridiculous. I didn't buy my 30D and look at it and go, man...if only it was this much better. I bought it to shoot it. When I buy my next camera, I'm not going to look at it, thinking of the next upgrade that I have to have. I don't look at my future wife thinking of my next wife.
I think a lot of people are getting themselves worked up for something, thinking that something is going to be amazing, and maybe they are getting to worked up. For example, it's said that the 20D to the 30D isn't a big upgrade. For all we know, that's all the more the 5D to the 5D2 will be.
A few things I think you can count on would be, "weather sealing", not like the 1D series, but more like 40D+ or something. I think live view (doesn't the XSi have it, and the 40D does too), that "sensor cleaning", and the ISO noise reduction that the 40D or whatever has. Higher MP, maybe a bit faster frame rate, and better/updated AF. I think the price point will be similar to the 5d's original price. This seems to make sense with the current Canon upgrade models.
