I'm hoping Canon will announce an upgrade to one of their 400mm L lenses. I'd love a 400mm f/5.6L with image stablization added. I could use the extra reach for wildlife -- right now, I'm using a 1.4x TC on my 70-200mm f/4L IS when needed, which only gets me to 280mm.

I don't know how I'd read that, but it definitely seems to be a new camera. I guess a mark II 5D is as good a guess as any. Scott, you are dead on about the 400mm f/5.6L. It is a great lens, but it would really benefit from IS.

Yes, it looks like a very nice camera. I think the video mode is humorous, though. It looks like this will be the next marketing feature to be put on all new dSLRs. I never use the video mode on my wife's point & shoot, so I could not imagine ever wanting the feature on a dSLR.

hi guys

My spouse dropped my 5D. It still works but there is now a 3/4 cm crack on the body right near the lense attachment. where can I send it for repair ? It still works, but the crack bothers me a bit.

As an FYI, the lense also got hosed when dropped. The zoom mechanism got jammed and was very hard to turn. I used it for a few days and then "pop" and it has been working flawlessly since.

LMK

thanks!!

They can tell you if there is a FSC closer to where you live.

I don't know. $3K for a high def camera with interchangeable lenses? Not bad.

If it did 24p it would be really good, but since my understanding is that it is limited to 30p it is "not bad."
