There will be units available in France, Italy and Germany - exactly why can't you purchase from one of these countries ? It's one hour by train ...

Not even one hour... Evian is just across the lake - 1/4h! Well, I've had bad experiences when I needed to have my equipment repaired. Although, then must honor the international warranty, repairs take forever.

This is a bit off topic, but if you're a pro you're supposed to join CPS, and then Amsterdam or Paris will repair your stuff super-fast. Both of these will repair you stuff fast anyway - I'm not even sure that Switzerland rates a repair department that has the parts for EOS-1 series and the training. If you really have issues, you can always come to Paris and I'll buy you a drink - I know some very nice retailers here, for Canon (Not medium format !).

Thanks for the offer, Edmund.  

Last time I complained at CPS, they told to get 24-70 in the US! Repairs in Switzerland are officially handled by a very small company and they do an excellent job but for some reason when I got my stuff from local dealers it was always repaired promptly. Stuff I purchased outside Switzerland took ages. Perhaps it was bad luck, after all?

At least one of the specs is wrong: Sensor size is listed as 28 x 18.7 instead of 36 x 24.

Makes me wonder if I should believe the Digital Terminal is USB, no longer FireWire 4-pin.

Yeah, that looks kind of wierd. My feeling is everything except image size and frame rate will be identical to the 1DIII. Including focus

No matter what Canon does with the body, there is still the issue of Canon lenses. There is still a tiny viewfinder (compared to my WLF), and no possibility of sticking the digital back on a view camera for technical movements. I doubt the image quality will match the MFDBs. It is also still stuck at 1/250 flash sync.

Interesting that this body is more expensive than the Mamiya ZD for fewer pixels. By the time you add the rumoured new L lenses to this body, the overall system will be significantly more than a Mamiya ZD with a selection of used lenses.

I doubt the new Canon will be any lighter or more compact than a Mamiya ZD.

Of course the high frame rate is the one big advantage of the Canon. That may or may not matter to the individual. My studio flash system can't recharge quickly enough for 5fps anyway. Which raises the question: how many sports photographers need 21MP?

It is also a 3:2 aspect ratio, which you may or may not prefer to 4:3. Personally I prefer the latter. If you are doing a lot of landscape work you may prefer the former.

As a 1DsII owner, I will not touch this camera until at least 4-6 months have gone by and all the bugs are clearly out. For some improvement that may or may not make my images better and an extra 5 megapixels, I can wait.

Also of interest among the specs:

"... Particularly noteworthy in DPP 3.2 is a new Lens Aberration Correction Function that corrects various image defects such as chromatic aberration, color blur, vignetting, and distortion. Initially, the Lens Aberration Correction Function will support images captured by the EOS-1Ds Mark III and 11 other EOS Digital SLRs using any of 29 individual EF and EF-S lenses..."

Perhaps this development will spur DXO Optics to concentrate more on non-Canon lenses. One of my more frequently used lenses, the Sigma 15-30, is not catered for, which is mainly why I haven't bought into the system.

The 40D was announced officially in Australia, today 20th August.  Specs are as so called "rumours", which is good news for "rumours" re 1DSmark3
