Canon 5D, full-frame for $3300

Yep, it's true. A full-frame sensor DSLR for $3300.

Amazing. Just amazing.

In addition to this camera, the 24-105mm f/4 IS and the 430EX flash unit mentioned the other day there is a new 70-300mm IS lens (replacing the current one with better optics and, probably, a higher price). Canon also released 8 other digital cameras today:

http://www.dpreview.com/news/0508/05082204canonsd450sd550.asp SD450 and SD550 (strangely, not replacing the SD400 and SD500, but are an addition to the line. I hope they fixed the problem with the cracking LCD screens)

http://www.dpreview.com/news/0508/05082203canonsd30.asp SD30 (replacing the SD20)

http://www.dpreview.com/news/0508/05082202canona610a620.asp A610 and A620 (replacing the A80 and A95. These cameras include DIGIC II and a faster lens at the telephoto end. Strong contenders for replacing our A80 when the time comes)

edit/update:
Let's not forget the new 1D Mark II N (what a name!) which is exactly the same as the current 1D Mark II except is has: a better LCD screen, better and faster buffering, a new Picture Style setup, and (rather interesting) the ability to write different images at the same time to the CF or SD cards that are in the camera (the body accepts both card types at the same time).
humor me
