Celebrate 10 years of Canon EOS-5D Cameras. September 2015 will be the 10th anniversary of the launch of the original EOS-5D. The EOS-5D series cameras have been landmarks in DSLR photography.
The original EOS-5D brought full frame DSLR photography to the consumer and advanced amateur market. The EOS 5D Mark II raised the bar to 21.1 MP resolution while being the first DSLR to capture 1080P HD video. Hollywood has never been the same with TV shows and major motion pictures shot using the EOS-D Mk II.
The EOS-5D Mk III again pushed the limits with a combination of high resolution, amazing high ISO performance and six frames per second. The EOS-5D Mk III also brought the EOS 5D series to new levels with 61 AF points (similar to the EOS-1DX).
Now Canon has added the EOS-5Ds and EOS-5DsR cameras that push the envelope to 50.6 MP resolution. There is a top-rated merchant on eBay selling the Canon EOS-5Ds and EOS-5DsR cameras for $2,949 and $3,499, respectively, including free shipping. Hurry, it won't last. This is an excellent deal for those who want the highest mega pixel camera on the market and crave super high resolution photography.
I will not be buying this camera since it is not the right wildlife photography tool for me. I am waiting for the EOS-5D Mk IV and EOS-1D X Mk II, coming out later this year or early 2016. For those thinking of upgrading from the EOS-5D Mk III to either model, take a look at my comparison between the cameras.
Join Canon at Live Learning San Francisco on August 22, 2015 to celebrate the anniversary of this amazing line of EOS cameras. The address is : 201 California St., San Francisco, CA 94111
