Canon EOS 5D mk II announced
It is with great pleasure that we announce [finally] the Canon EOS 5D mk II digital SLR.
According to Canon's press release:
The EOS 5D Mark II is the latest addition to Canon’s world renowned EOS line up, replacing the EOS 5D. The new model sets the benchmark in full-frame Digital SLR cameras and is perfect for enthusiasts and professional photographers seeking unrivalled image quality and high performance. A high resolution 35mm full-frame, 21.1 megapixel CMOS sensor producing 14-bit images, combined with new features such as Live View movies in Full High Definition (HD) and increased ISO capabilities (expandable to a range of 50-25600) will enable users to take their photography to the next level.
In addition, the new EF24mm f/1.4L II USM replaces the EF24mm f/1.4L USM. The new lens is the brightest large diameter f/1.4 high-performance wide-angle L lens in the 24mm class. Improvements have been made in the periphery area of the lens, a requirement brought about from the rapid advancement of high resolution sensors available in EOS DSLRs.
The EOS 5D Mark II and EF24mm f/1.4L II USM lens are expected to commence shipping late November.
Pricing on all kits is TBC.
