canon upgraded the 40D due to mounting pressures from nikon's offerings. why would they not upgrade the 5D, now that nikon has thrown down the gauntlet in the form of the D700? (odd that nikon has been doing a lot of that lately...)
No they didnt. They didnt pull this cam out of their ass they have been working on it for quite some time. They may have accelerated the release by 6 months though.
If a 5DmkII is in the works for release for sometime in the next 3 months, you can bet it's been on the drawingboard for some time.
Personally I cannot believe they wouldnt take the 50D, put in bigger prism, bigger mirror and sensor, and grant us all 16.7mp, beautiful ISO6400. usable ISO12500 and 5fps for $3399
And ESOFUN is Nufose backwards.
