    This is really confusing, 14MP high-end DSLR is based on F80?...

    Maybe they started development with F80 long back then the 14MP chip came later and they jacked up the price.

    Also read that Canon has a 11.1 megapixel camera out too at Photokina? Anyone can translate.

    i'd rather pay that kind of money for a 'pro-er' body, like canon's or nikon's. 5000 for a F80-like body is simply a waste of money. but it's light though.

    Hmm.... the vert grip looks funny, how come the release button is wrongly placed? Shouldn't it be near the grip side of the camera?

    Eh? I don't think that's the release button lah. If i remembered correctly, the DCS 760 also has that thing on that corner.

    Left hand shutter release?

    The whole thing looks weird in this angle, like wide angle distortion.

    is it that they use the new sensor as a replacement for the film? and they have the separate battery pack for the "digital film" . That is why it is based on the F80. Therefore, we can use it in a more "tradisional" way. If it is like that, the current DCs in the market will be eliminated soon

    It sure looks sexy. The press release is out on dpreview.
    Pity it's a Nikon mount.
