Exactly!

But you know how some companies are...a few consumers whine, and cry about something, ("Wahhhh it's too HEAVY with the built on grip...etc"), and they tend to CATER to the crybabies quite often.

But yeah, PRO BODY means/NEEDS Built in/on grip! YEAH BABY!!

Agreed!!! If you dont want a grip just get this

I would not pay more than 5000$ for it. If that happens I will sell all my canon lenses and buy nikon d3s. I hope I would not get disappointed by canon


To each his/her own, but WHY not?

Supposed BETTER dynamic range than the 1Ds Mk III!

FULL FRAME for landscape, nature, macro, portrait, wedding photographers etc.

12-14 FPS for Sports, Wildlife, BIF photographers!

1 series durability, reliability, AF, sealing etc!

LOW NOISE expected.

Likely great high ISO. (Though to me I couldn't care less)

What more do you want?

Even a $6,000 price tag to me sounds like a steal.

That wouldn't survive my requirements inside an animal enclosure, or among a riot

Nice spec though

The animals would probably look at it, and then LAUGH at whoever's using it.:lol:

I like how the built in grip feels. I do not care for teh add on grip.

The reason you don't care for the add-on grip is that it was designed by a neanderthal. My cat could come up with a better "design".

A properly designed add-on grip will give you the same weathersealing benefits and the same feel as an integrated grip would. The problem isn't with the concept, it's with the implementation.

You would not have to shoot that anymore. :lol: JK JK

If I had one of these I would set it up when a client came over to show it off and sell them that I am a legit photog. Then when they left i would lock it back in the hyperbolic safe.

Exactly!!! its flat and not contoured at all. It feels like I am holding a 2x4

It's not that my cat is amazing, it's that Canon's "engineer" that designed the detachable grips for their DSLRs is, well, not. :-D

Hey, don't sell your kitty short.

It's probably more a case of, "A little from column A, a little from column B."

On a side note...it must be getting close to "tomorrow" (Oct. 18th) SOMEWHERE...where's the damn announcement already?!

Am I missing something besides a few screws?

As Lucy said to Ricky: Splain how they get the mirror to move fast enough and the AF, which is already questionable, to keep up with anything faster than 10 fps? And who needs it? If you can't get the shot at 10fps, you need video.

Also, I love those who don't ponder and guess, but adamantly state it won't be more than a certain price. Uh, have you looked at the OUTRAGEOUS pricing of the new lenses?

Over/under on $7000? Under, boys. Under. It's going to be closer to $5000 than $8000. Take that to the bank.

Suck it, MDJAK. I'm calling you out! :D

$10k. Canon's biggest flop yet because it does not give us what we want and it doesn't beat ANYTHING nikon is going to come out with...or has already released.

Well if it's anywhere NEAR what the rumors have listed, I'll be MORE than satisfied! Esp if it has incredible LOW ISO IQ!!

What the hell do people want?!
