I'm freaking out right now!!!

Today is the day!

I've known this day was coming for awhile...

And i've had mixed feelings about it.

But now that it's here, I'm about ready to scream and jump up and down!!!

Today, they introduced the BRAND NEW Canon 5D Mark II!

I know, I know... I'm a dork...

But I'm a photographer, can you blame me?!

I've been planning on buying the 5D for a couple months now... and am quite close to having enough money.

I've done my research baby, and the 5D is exactly what I want/need and more than I could ask for.

It's an amazing quality pro-level camera and I have not heard ONE BAD thing about it.

So now, they came out with it's successor... what am I to do?!

It's so brand spanking new, that I can't even find the price anywhere.

I imagine it's a boatload, but still... a girl needs to know!

So if you know how much it is, or find a site that actually lists the price, help me out here!

And if you're a fellow photographer, please feel free to leave your drool comments.

Um, HOLY CRAP! I KNEW it! Omg, I want to buy it RIGHT NOW. I'm so glad I didn't get the 5D now.

I want to jump up and down! Not that I can afford it yet. Yet. :)But still. How did you find out about this?

I found some info on that beauty here:

According to that site - it's MSRP is $3499, available June 2 (2009?).

How I would love to have a camera like that - but there's no way I could justify spending that much on a camera. I am not a photographer, though. It looks like an awesome bit of equipment for someone who is a photographer!

I'm still in the $300 dollar range for cameras, lol. I have my eye on the Cannon S80, but we'll see. If I was a pro, the camera you want would be awesome!

Well... for someone who has only ever dabbled in pro photography... I, um, just squeed and drooled a little.

i say wait.
any new camera has bugs and kinks to work out.. and then you have to do firmware upgrades until they get it right.
if you hold off.. you can get it after they fix the kinks, and probably a few hundred less.
i plan to buy a second 5d to have on hand until probably spring/summer of 09 when i make the leap to the new 5d successor.
