I just received an e-mail announceing the upcoming Canon EOS 1-D Digital SLR. This looks to be very exciting as I have been wanting to get a digital SLR for some time now. The D-30 is a nice camera and recently I had a chance to play around with one, but I was a little concerned by its lack of a sufficent weatherproofing as I sometimes find my self shooting in downpours. It seems that the EOS 1-D maybe my way into the digital rehlm when I can scrape together the $6500.00

Take a look!

Thomas,

This is Canon's response to the Nikon D1X/H. Supposedly they are very comparable. I am thinking about getting the D1H, after I sell my S1. The S1 (like the D30) is not very durable and has a slow AF and drive motor.

Justifiably spending $4,000+ on another SLR is another story...  Smile

The Canon looks very impressive, I would expect nothing less.

Im certainly very very interested in one of these but the price makes it only available to guys working for companies who will foot the bill or full-time pros who turn over alot of work. It took me 13 years to buy an EOS-1V type of camera, its gonna take me longer i think before i buy a top end digital slr from canon- for 6500 i'd buy 2 EOS-1V's and a top of the line scanner instead.

On the strength of this preview, this camera doesn't look like it's worth the extra $3000 over the price of the D30 to me.

You guys a truely obsessed. I manage with a 30 year old SLR and it's good enough. I could buy a sweet dirtbike or a KIA car for $6500 US.

Yes indeed, those of us who shoot with pro level digital cameras are obsessed.

I have been obsessed with digital since I got my D1.

13 months and I have shot no film! Yahoo!

Regardless, I still want this camera, it would certainly compliment my other 3 EOS's. However $6500 is indeed a lot of moolaaah, although there will no doubt be some discounting by dealers, still $5000-$5500 is a little out of my league at this time, but maybe next year....if this recession dosen't kill me first!

Hmmm... loadsamoney! Worth it over the D30? I dunno - it depends why you're buying the camera. It's like saying "why would you spend all that money on an EOS 1V when you could buy an EOS 30?" (or for Nikon users substitute F5 and F80). It's a pro-spec camera, and it looks, feels and handles like it. If I had the money I'd rush right out and buy one, but for now, I'm going to be quite happy with my D30. I daresay at some point in the future, after the price comes down some (assuming it does), I'm going to start drooling over the 8fps, 45 focus points, build quality, etc, but the jump in resolution over the D30 is hardly astounding. As long as my D30 keeps turning out high quality images, that's where I'll be sticking.
