          Had it been a 30D upgrade at the price range of a 30D, with 10-12MP, fast AF and so on, OK, but I don't really see the benefit of this camera over my trusty 20D.

          I won't buy one, which is good for my wallet though

            If you shoot with 1-series body a bit longer you won't say that anymore...for me it was hard to switch from 1D(original) to 30D even with 30D's superior image quality. Once you try 1-series, there's no turning back really, at least not in the long run...

              Why that? Where exactly do you see the added value of this new 1D over a 30D?

              Just curious, as I've never touched a 1D camera so far

                AF alone is enough reason for me to want a 1-series. There's really no comparison it always nails it right, even in bad conditions. 30D doesn't, I've deleted much more photos on 30D because of bad focusing. Then there's the huge buffer which is quite handy, especially on airshows/action shooting. I've found 1.3x crop to be quite optimal too, wider glass is wide enough and telephoto lenses still get a bit of extra reach. And the build quality is in totally different league, way, way beyond 20/30D.

                But all this is quite subjective. I've had higher keeper shot percentage with 1-series cameras and also more fun while shooting so I really see 1-series as a better camera.

                I recommend trying one for yourself...(disclaimer: I'm not responsible for possible expenses that might follow )

                  I'm burning over here, no 40D replacement?! Can't believe it. Canon is really kicking themselves in the butt. The Nikkon D300 should be out soon, and the D200 is already stealing 30D sales.

                  The 350D is too close to the 30D so I was planning on upgrading to the 40D, but it seems that has to wait another 6 months (arg).

                    Very impressive specs. Will need to fully read the white paper, as there was mention on the Fred Miranda forums about being able to write directly to a USB pen drive or a USB Hard Drive. For a high end pro SLR the price seems reasonable at around the same as the current 1DIIN price.
                    If the current 1DIIN price was to fall to around that of the 5D at present then I may be tempted to part with the cash for the current model.

                      Canon's not doing anything wrong. They're worried about their professionals, not their aviation enthusiasts who just got a 30D not too long ago.

                      A 1D just for aviation spotting? I don't think so. 30D image superior to an original 1D? I also don't believe so unless shooting high ISO. The 1D series is superior to any camera around, even Nikons, yes I said it. When talking to the pros who shoot Nikons, the only camera worthwhile that Nikon has released is the D200, which is an awesome camera, kicks the shit out of any Canon consumer body. However the D2X is a dud and I know so many pros that do not like it, the pro body to have from Nikon is the D1H.

                      The pros haven't had a body released in a long time by Canon, and now they're digital bodies are comprible to the film bodies with the 10FPS the 1V has. 10MP seems to be about right, because people should be fine with 6, let alone 10.

                      Just my 2 cents from what I've learned working with the pros.

                        Looks good, but at $4000, can't afford it.

                        I just want the replacement of the 30D to come out and maybe get it as a replacement for my 350D next summer or christmas, or 2008 summer (by the time my 350D will be 3 y/o)

                          Boo Canon, yay beer!

                          Seriously, it's been what, six 1D cameras now? Are they just going to keep doing that until we get the Canon 1D Mark XXVLI? Not to mention the confusingly named 1Ds (which should have been named something else)! The 1Dmk3 is nice, but... it's yet another 1D evolution. When's Canon going to pull a T90 and shake things up again?

                            You can believe what you like, I've owned both bodies and used them a lot. 30D has superior image quality. To begin with, 1D's 4MP is limiting in many situations and the color, contrast etc. isn't as good as with 30D. And with higher ISO thing get even more in 30D's favor.

                            Than being said, 1D is a better camera in everything else. Now that mark III is released and there will be lots of used mark II's, I just might get one of those...

                              How do you find the 4 MP limiting? I use it and print 20x30's that look absolutely stunning. Megapixels mean nothing when you know how to use a camera to it's full potential. I've used practically every Canon digital camera that is out, and the original 1D still kicks many cameras in the ass. Sure the noise is high at higher ISO's, but it's an old camera. Throw some noise ninja on it and the images are beautiful for printing. When I reply to threads on here about cameras, I like to think people are printing their photos and not just buying thousands in camera gear to post photos on the internet of airplanes.
