wait what does he mean same micro lens coverage??
we waited three years and they still didnt get the latest sensor generation in? no gapless

wow, i hope i'm reading that wrong. if they held back gapless and its same AF and 4fps....

Seems like they shaved off all these little details just so that it wouldnt make the 1Ds3 look bad - 98% viewfinder, 3.9fps, not quite weathersealed



I agree... At the very least I would have liked to have seen an increase in FPS with lesser resolution. I also wish it had a pop-up flash. It was great for fill in on the 20d.

Somewhat of a letdown, but if the IQ is there, I can look past a lot of stuff. Canon is claiming the 5dII to have the best IQ of all current SLRs. We shall see.

I also hope that AI Servo doesnt produce banding like it did with the 5d.

Late November!!!! I needed it by late October. Might be my only grip about it, as this is going to be a hell of a camera, just like the 5D was from all accounts, never mind Sony this and Nikon that.

You can already get it for 2729 at Canoga.


I live a few miles from Canoga and was in there this weekend. I asked about D700 sales, as the sales person had just shown one to a prospective customer. I was surprised to have him tell me that sales have been way lower than they expected. He said demand has just been low; their best theory was that most people wanted the new 5D and knew it would be out soon, so they were holding off.

Good morning everybody. Did not here my clock ring.

As far I see till now its amazing. It gives me everything I was hoping for. At a great price, too. I would love to see the ISO 3200/6400 images.
But except that:

You where right EOSfun!

(9+6 AF is action potentially greaty for action since all you need is for teh assist to be packed near the middle, the question is is it a sad digic driven AF of the xxD and 5D or did they give it an AF chip so it can use the points effectively? it could be anywhere from very disappointing to truly excellent, depending)




From Rob Galbraith's site:

The 5D and 5D Mark II share one other notable AF hardware similarity: both utilize a dedicated microprocessor to perform AF calculations (in contrast, Canon's Mark III models, for example, utilize DIGIC III for this).

is that the same 9 point AF system? (i really hope not.) still, this speaks well for the future of digital photography (for enthusiasts).

the cheapest phase one medium format setup is still $8,999. Having 20+ megapixel FF canon body in reach of the enthusiast is a nice bridging of the gap - until lower-megapixel medium format comes down to the (new) price of the current D3 or 1D3.

the original 5D was $3400 when it came out. the 5dMkII will be $2700 on release. Again, this speaks very well for the next generation.

It's got all the latest sensor tech and gapless microlens array and a newer RGB array than 1Ds III. It's an evolution of the 1Ds III sensor

I don't see any mention of AF during video capture.
Does anyone have any info on this?

And how about the gapless microlens?
I don't see any mention of that too...

The microlens link was mentioned above. I think it was a taiwan site.

This sealing looks enough for me, too.

He was right, when he told me I will be happy with it (somwhere on page 70 something or so).

It will change your photography forever, I promise.

Maybe we can start talking about something BESIDES THIS on the board now.

I love you Ralph! You seem to be the only one who will be happy with it from what I read. This place has really turned into a DPR clone... sad, sad, sad.

According to Dpreview, it's actually:
Reduced micro lens gap
Canon have stated that the gap between microlenses has been reduced compared to the original EOS 5D, although there is still some gap (the EOS 50D has a 'gapless' design).


So no gapless microlenses.
