The Mk II version can produce 48-meg 8-bit files for stock photography (for example) without interpolation - but only just about.

The Mk III will give a bit more headroom. With the other features it certainly looks a worthwhile improvement - i.e. not like the Canon 20D -> 30D "upgrade".

Isn't the colour depth now 14bit as opposed to 12bit on this? That should make a huge difference. Hopefully the extra pixels won't affect the noise handling.

Quote:Actually the pixel jump will make very little difference.


I suspect you may be correct Keith.
A 5MP jump sounds alot, but when you start off with 16MP, it is not so great. From my estimations, it is about the same increase the move from 6MP to 8MP (about 25%) - and I remember not being able to spot the difference in 8MP and 6MP images (of the same sensor size).

After last week, I suspect I may be advertising soon as well:
5D, never been soaked by sea water on regular basis, still in full working order (honest!), and suspiciously clean!
