Zowie – 5DII sure looks impressive

Gizmodo is reporting a 21mp 100-6400 $2700 5D Mark II from Canon. Sure seems impressive. I remain delighted with my D700 and I am a committed Nikon shooter, but if this is true Canon is definitely upping the ante in a big way. I wonder how it will compare noise-wise at high iso.

(I am, however, disappointed that the G10 announcement doesn’t have a larger sensor in the works – come on Nikon, Panasonic, Olympus, somebody – make a large-sensor point-n-shoot, I’ve got my checkbook handy… (of course, I’d love to be wrong, if the G10 turns out to be a winner, I’ll pick one up in a heartbeat, it looks beautiful aside from the microscopic sensor…))
