by Reads (23)

In addition to all the new Powershots, Canon is announcing the EOS-1D Mark III professional digital SLR. The Mark III gets a new 10.1 megapixel APS-H sized CMOS sensor, dual DIGIC III processors, and a Live View, 3 inch LCD. The Mark III will be available in the Spring for about the same price as its predecessor, the Mark II N.

By the way, sorry to disappoint all those waiting on the 40D – those rumors may have to be delayed.
