Major new feature appears to be a three-part 'concertina' mirror which neatly folds out of the way to clear lenses with deeply protruding rear sections.

Quote:
We had a request from one of our 5D users, who was having issues with some old Contax lenses; this is our response

said Toishi Yamamoto, head of manual lens compatibility research at Canon, Inc.

The 7D also features user-replaceable focus screens, and explodes if an AF lens is mounted. Pricing is yet to be announced, although "!0% less than whatever Nikon comes out with" was mentioned off the record.

Guys, please keep your fingers crossed for me.
It seems that I have won a ticket for the Photokina and perhaps my principal even grants me a day off to go there (for my school - I am the "school photographer" Wink).

Guys it is not funny. Exploding cameras can be very dangerous. They are not toys and should be handled carefully Wink

Good luck Carsten you will have a great time. BTW, will you take a sherpa to carry all the product literature back to the car park for you?

I don't need that, Andy. I am used to carry around heavy gear, so I should not have a problem to carry around some literature. Wink
