Canon's Broadside - the new 40D and 1Ds Mk. III

Canon fired a serious broadside this week in the digital SLR wars. The Canon 40D 10MP is equipped with the dust-reduction system introduced on the Rebel XTi and a boosted 6.5 per second frame rate. But the heavy-hitting shell comes in the form of the updated 1Ds Mark III with a stunning 21MP full-frame sensor at 5fps equipped with dual DIGIC III processors to keep performance at peak. Canon states that they will sell the camera at the same prices as the Mark II model it replaces.

In addition, Canon introduced a new 14mm f2.8 prime with USM and two consumer EF-S lenses - an 18-55mm f3.5-5.6 and a 55-200mm f3.5-5.6, both equipped with a simplified version of Image Stabilization.

For previews on both cameras, please visit our colleagues at Imaging-Resource and LetsGoDigital.
