I don't have a clue what it will be priced at... I found the link to it on another forum, and thought you guys might want to see it.

The brochure may even be a fake. I do see a discrepancy. Some parts of the brochure show 16.7 Megapixels. Yet, the resolution shows 4992 x 3328 (16,613,376 pixels, or 16.6 Megapixels).

Specs appear to be (based on some translations on another forum):

EOS-1DSMK2 (official short-noting)
Media CF and SD (like 1D#2)

ISO: 100-1600 (ext 50-3200) like 1D#2
L and RAW:4992x3328
M1: 3600x2400
M2: 3072x2048
S: 2496x1664

17.22 Mpixel where
16.7 Mpixel effective

4 images/sec, buffer 32(JPEG) and 11(RAW)
(buffersize is 1,5x as large as the 1D#2, 32x5.5mb against 40x2.8mb)

45 AF-points (like 1D#2)
CMOS TTL-AREA-SIR

1/8000-30 sec
and x-syn: 1/250
Shootings on one battery charge: 1200 (20 graden)/ 800 (0 graden)
like 1D#2, where it's real number of shootings mostly exceeds 2000x

TFT Screen 230.000 pix at 2 inch (like 1D#2)

20 Personal preferences with 65 instances
27 Personal functions

Weight 1215g + 335g battery (NP-E3)

It's NOT a fake - it is now on the Breaking news page but it is 16.7MP & still out of the price range of many of us! No more lenses???? How about a 22-105mm 2.8 USM for starters that will work on FILM & Digital cameras?!

Actually... It's quite affordable if you compare the 1Ds mrkII with medium format camera of the same resolution (several magnitude less actually)!

... and it can shoot faster than most professional studio strobes can recycle, which the larger formats can't claim :-):-):-)

It's 16.61MP (4992 x 3328 ). I don't know where they're getting the 16.7MP from (unless they're counting pixels used for something other than the final image -- or, someone decided to round up from 16.61).

It's 17.2MP actual, and 16.61MP effective.

Their own press release has discrepancies:

With 16.7 effective megapixels (out of a total of 17.2 megapixels) packed on to a 36.0 x 24.0 mm CMOS sensor, the EOS-1Ds Mark II camera offers the world's highest pixel count in a 35mm, full-size digital AF SLR camera. In the JPEG Large and RAW modes, the 4992 x 3328 recorded pixels are easily capable of making 16 x 24 inch enlargements. What's more, the EOS-1Ds Mark II camera has sufficient resolution to generate a full double page spread at 300 DPI, considered the ‘Holy Grail" of catalog photography.
Quote:
Unlike the original 1Ds camera that featured only two image quality settings, the new EOS-1Ds Mark II model places greater control and discretion in the photographer's hands and offers a choice of five image quality settings: RAW (16.6 megapixels); Large JPEG (16.6 megapixels); Medium 1 JPEG (8.6 megapixels), Medium 2 JPEG (6.3 megapixels), and Small JPEG (4.2 megapixels). RAW files and JPEGS can be shot separately or simultaneously, for maximum flexibility according to the desired workflow.

I just downloaded and printed those sample Jpgs from the 1Ds-m2 that Canon posted.

WOW even in these small jpgs (7-11meg) each, the detail and color is incredible.

Like to get my hands on one of the 95meg RAW files just to see what it can really do.

:cart:Sigh, think I will have to take on another paper route to save up enough pennies for this one.
