Amidst all the boring new point and shoot entry level cameras comes a breath of fresh air. Canon announces the EOS 1D MK III. Don’t expect a review anytime soon, or ever for that matter, as it’ll retail for $3999, though at that price it seems to represent quite a value. Also announced were a new 16-35mm F/2.8L lens that’s of course supposed to be better than the current one; a new speedlite 580 EX II flash unit and a wireless file transmitter. Once again, the closest I’ll be getting to this camera is probably the pictures on the left, but there’s a possibility of a lens review (16-35mm F/2.8L II) in the future.
