Canon EOS 5D Is Alive

Canon The Canon 5D was officially announced today. And it’s a beauty – 12.8 megapixel, full-frame goodness at a cost of $3,299. Now that’s not quite in the prosumer price range, but it’s a heck of a lot closer than the 1D ($7k+). Anyway, this one has a 2.5″ monitor, and captures bursts at 3 frames per second. Not gonna work for you sports shooters out there, but perfectly peachy for capturing pics of Sam at home and in the wild! Of course, maybe I’m more addicted than I realize to the 1.6x effect on my 80-200 – it does let me reach out and touch the animals at the zoo…
