I need my UWAs! With digital MF, the only way to get an horizontal angle of view equivalent to 16mm or less on full-frame at the moment is with an IQ180, IQ160 or Aptus-II 10R with a 23mm lens...

Why not just get a TS-E 17 and proceed to tilt it left and right then composite the images into a super-huge-wide?

That's what I currently do - with the TS-E 17, TS-E 24 and teleconverters if needed.

But some scenes - those with moving elements - just don't lend themselves well to stitching... anything for a digital Fuji/Hasselblad X-PAN!

I can't tell you how excited I am to see the features of this camera. Now the price is something else. I just don't see giving up my 5D II to get this, but a guy can dream!

did the price of 1Ds mark III or 1D mark IV drop when they announced this camera? I am still playing with the idea of upgrading my 5D to mark II. I dont want to wait for mark III, just dont want spend too much on the mark II.

Don't think 1Ds3/1D4 prices will drop any time soon. Since they seem to be having a hard enough time as is keeping them stocked.

yeah that might be bit different. I was trying to figure out what will happen with 5D mark II if they announce the 5D mark III. I am quite interested in getting the mark II to replace the classic, dont really need it that much, but having weak moments:)

I'm assuming you're scavenging for the 5D2? As the announcement of the 5D3 will affect the "used 5D2" market more than new retail pricing. And how much it will be affected depends on how "good or bad" the 5D3 specs are. If it's a worthy upgrade, you can expect a higher % of 5D2 owners ditching their cameras earlier, thus flooding the used market and driving the prices down. Looks like you may need to wait at least another 3-6 months. :lol:

At least imho.. I wouldn't be surprised if it will take much longer than that..
Right now Canon seems to have a full lineup covering almost every need at every price point. Sure people always want the perfect dslr for the perfect price, but I guess it's more probable to see a completely new series (3??) before anything else, since 1Ds is discontinued..

I was actually thinking about getting a new one instead as the prices of used ones are not the much lower at the moment. I should just end this OT convo and bite the bullet instead:)

Canon had an Expo in Johannesburg, South Africa. They had the 1Dx on display and I took some shots at ISO 5000. An auto setting and the camera selected that for the available light. It looked very impressive on the LCD. Zooming in showed nothing that one should be concerned about.
