    Does “Built-In HDR and Multiple Exposure Modes” really means that a real double/triple etc. exposure on the same frame will finally be possible with a Canon camera … in such case all Canon owner will be very happy … including me :-) Canon has finally minimized the risk that a lot of wildlife/fine art photographers will switch to Nikon. Congratulations Canon !!!

    Best, Thorsten

    I knew the US dollar was worth nothing and therefore pricing would be high, but this is nuts. Pricing is crazy especially on the accessories.

    The trouble with Canon is that they have several crop frame EOS models to suit everyone’s budget – from their entry level EOS 1100D to the high end 7D.

    When it comes to their full frame cameras, none of them are within most hobbyists’ financial reach and there are very few models to choose from. The 5D Mk II is long in the tooth by today’s standards, the 5D Mk III’s pricing is outrageous while the 1Ds Mk III and 1D-X are pro-grade dSLRs targeted towards working professionals.

    If this is going to be Canon’s trend, you can be sure that the 5D Mk IV will be priced even higher than the 5D Mk III today.

    Why can’t we have a basic, full frame Canon dSLR priced like the EOS 7D? I wouldn’t mind settling for a polycarbonate body (like the 60D, which I own), only 9 AF points, a 4.5fps burst rate (maybe) and a single DiGIC 5 (not necessarily the DiGIC 5+) processor.

    If Canon also made an entry level FF body, it’s still going to be a win-win situation for both parties. Buyers who want an action/sports oriented camera can go for the 7D while those who don’t need the 7D’s performance but want a full frame dSLR can go for the basic FF model (Canon can name it the “EOS 9D” if they want to).
