It's on!

update:

http://www.bhphotovide​o.com …_eos_5ds_dslr_c​amera.html (external link)

COMING SOON
Ship Time: Not available
Item will be available for purchase on Mon, Jun 29 12AM


EOS 5DS
http://www.usa.canon.c​om …meras/slr_camer​as/eos_5ds (external link)

"Marking a new standard in high-resolution digital SLR photography, the Canon EOS 5DS camera shatters the status quo with a new 50.6 Megapixel, full-frame CMOS sensor. Perfect for commercial and fine art photography, or any other application that calls for extremely high-resolution, the EOS 5DS is the ultimate combination of EOS performance and ultra-high megapixel capture. It features an advanced, 61-point High Density Reticular AF system that includes 41 cross-type AF points and EOS iTR AF for precise AF in numerous situations. An anti-flicker function helps provide consistent exposure and color during continuous shooting under certain lighting conditions, while a built-in bulb timer and intervalometer expands creative opportunities without the need for an additional remote control. A refined mirror control mechanism reduces vibration and a Time Release Lag setting minimizes camera shake for sharp image capture when using mirror lock-up. New features like a crop function of 1.3x and 1.6x and a Custom Quick Control screen are complemented by advanced, multi-featured Full HD Movie capture, with Time Lapse Movie, and much more. With EOS performance and 50.6 Megapixel Capture, the EOS 5DS revolutionizes high-resolution photography!"

EOS 5DS R
http://www.usa.canon.c​om …ras/slr_cameras​/eos_5ds_r (external link)

"With all the features and capabilities of the EOS 5DS, the EOS 5DS R camera offers the potential for even greater sharpness and fine detail for specialized situations. It features the same Canon designed and manufactured 50.6 Megapixel sensor, with the low-pass filter* (LPF) effect cancelled to provide even more fine edge sharpness and detail for critical subjects such as detailed landscapes, and other situations where getting the sharpest subject detail is a priority."

Photo Rumors leaked the probable EU prices of some of the gear Canon will announce on Friday, February 6th. (external link)

Canon EOS 5Ds: €3,499 (around $4,000)
Canon EOS 5Ds R (no low-pass filter): €3,699 (around $4,200)
Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM: €2,999 (around $3,400)

Most probably the US prices will be lower.

Want, want and WANT! One of each, maybe?

Regarding the supposedly leaked press release, it seems reasonable to me.

Only one that interests me is the lens...and that price there is no justification for it...kinda like how I feel about the 14mm prime.

IMO, if this is the "state of the art" optics in this category (UWA zoom)...the ~$3000 price (USA) is warranted. This lens will sell well.

I see nothing out of the ordinary with the supposed price tag for the supposed EF 11-24 mm f/4L USM. It's about where one would expect. Unfortunately, but that's it.

People seem to be more concerned about whether its Sony that's made the sensor for these cameras. I'm sure we'll find out soon enough. Maybe buying more storage and back up devices is going to need to be factored in too lol

at this point it is not possible to say whether the camera or lens is overpriced.

The fact that you will be able to purchase a 50MP SLR is indeed revolutionary and the price seems reasonable to me, even if there are only very modest improvements in DR and high ISO noise. My guess is that Canon knows this is a niche product, and probably want it that way. I suspect that producing these sensors is not going to be cheap or easy.

a rectilinear wide angle lens with very little distortion is/might be an amazing thing. The price is a fraction of this one http://www.shutterbug.​com …oes-sale-ebay-bidding-18k (external link)

I for one am not looking for more MP without any improvement in ISO / shadow noise, especially from Canon.

$3K for UWA lens that is F4?!?!?
Well there's a market for everything I guess.

I understand that we live in a culture where we constantly exposed to exciting leaps in technological achievements, but shouldn't we be a little more pumped up at the fact that the 5D is now going to be outfitted with a FIFTY megapixel sensor!?!? I know the rumour mill has hinted at this for several months if not years, but wow - it's happened! The transition from the mark 2 to the mark 3 gave us one, measly megapixel jump. This time Canon has blasted ahead and not just skipped the 30's, the 40's even, and went straight to FIFTY. My first camera was 3.34 megapixels way back in 2001. I'd just like to officially say that I'm impressed!

However, after having said all of that, in the real world, I'd hate to have to work with 50 megapixel files on a regular basis. I have a fairly fast raid setup for my work files and 22mp images are rather slow. And let's face it, the average Joe is not regularly shooting for billboards. And I've yet to have a client actually want a 40"x60" canvas print.

Can someone tell me a low pass filter and why it is so significant to warrant a completely separate camera without a low pass filter?
