OK, So, I Was Wrong

When I said the upcoming 40D was attracting my attention, I was right, but I didn’t know there was a bigger shark in the waters. Enter the 1Ds Mk III. Alan Hess wrote about it overnight, and man does it sound sweet!

With this camera, Canon starts to push the envelope of the resolution (at least megapixel-wise) of the medium-format digital backs, coming in at twenty-one megapixels! And, smartly, they included UDMA access to the CF, so writes will happen at the blazing speeds the new generation of CF will support. Basically take all the good new stuff of the 1D Mk III, put a full size sensor in it, and you’ve got the 1Ds Mk III.

Camera lust has no bounds……
