Neal pointed me at this article on which details the specifications for the Canon EOS 5D mark II in time for Photokina this year.

Some stuff you get for your £2299:

  • 21.1MP sensor with new low-pass filter and DIGIC-IV processor
  • 1080p 16:9 movie recording (limited to 4GB constant file size)
  • ISO100-6400 native, with extension to ISO50-ISO25600
  • New battery type (oh bugger!) – LP-E6
  • 9-point AF, 6 “invisible” AF points
  • Dust-reduction and sexy new cleaning mechanism

I’m quite glad I’ve held out for this now. Maybe I’ll budget for one on the other side of Christmas, or for my birthday in May. Actually, the latter sounds like a good idea…
