Canon 1D Mark IV
Its out...

16-megapixel CMOS image sensor
Dual DIGIC 4 processors
45-point AF system
10fps burst
14-bit A/D conversion
1080p HD video recording

Gets as low as 50 ISO and as high as 10200 ISO.

Any thoughts for us Sports fans?

Must say the Aussie dollar is nearly 1 for 1 so may cancel my Mark III order is the price is right.

Here's the deal - it's going to be a good 4-6 months before we know what kind of camera the mkIV is. If you can wait that long before having your body then you'll know if it's safe to buy. Right now it's marked at $5000 USD and I wouldn't count on it selling for a penny less for quite some time.

The AF system is completely re-worked and the sensor is new so AF & high ISO performance will have to be proven out.

Just changed my order... Cancelled from 2 Mark III's to 1. Save some money if its worth it.
