Wow. What a beast. Being a Pentax user I'm not super familiar with the 1D range, but is this the first time a 1D has been full frame? Haven't the previous incarnations been a 1.3X crop? If I'm correct, then this seems quite a step for Canon.

Yep, I guess they liked the extra zoom for sports events etc but 12/14fps is crazy....

I guess the 5d mk111 will be getting some of those features :) means I can get a mk11 hehe

Twelve frames per second and native ISO of 51,200 are insane. I wonder what ISO introduces noticeable noise? 3200? wow. MSRP about $6800 USD if I remember correctly.

Not sure about this, but that would most certainly be an asset when trying to keep up with the action in ice hockey venues where the action is super quick and the lighting less than ideal.

However, considering the price, I think I will pass.

I've never understood why people always say this, surely you could just crop your images from a full frame camera and get more versatility from using full frame?

Comparing the 1D (1.3 crop) and the 1Ds (full frame), if you crop to the size of the 1D sensor size, you have 12.6 megapixel on the 1Ds, whereas the 1D has 16 megapixel. So if you, for some reason, need those extra pixels, it might make a difference.

In the past, the decision was either full frame, or 10 frames per second. Now you get full frame and 12 frames per second with 18 megapixel. To me this sounds like a good mixture of the two previous ones.

Time to save up and trade in my 5D MKII. The fps will be a huge benefit when I'm photography dog sports.

Will be interesting to see how the lower resolution sensor compares to the 1Ds mkII and the 5D mkII

I've been waiting for this camera. Have money set aside to buy this, as I've skipped other upgrade opportunities. At 400,000 shutter actuations (MTF), this will last awhile.
Available in March.

At what point, and this is a serious question, are we going to do away with the old manner of speaking about ISO? 204,800?!? We should just label ISO 100 (or maybe ISO 50) "1" and go from there...

Really doesn't bother me in the least Doc, I will simply trudge on and continue taking crappy pictures with cheaper equipment.

check out the APEX system....

I agree with your logic 110%, but I fear that the conventions of traditional photography and photographers will never let that happen.. unfortunately..
