Canon EOS 5D II gets official

With rumours and spy pics already out there, it's hardly a surprise to see Canon rolling out their awesome new EOS 5D II. But the new DSLR is certainl

Like the new Ixus 980, the EOS 5D II has plenty to brag about. As well as a massive 21.1MP sensor, there's Full HD video. That's 1080p folks. Which gives Nikon and their 720p effort on the D90 plenty to think about. You can shoot at 30fps, but the real story here is how good the stills are.

As well as full manual mode, you get ultra-wide angle and fish eye with a 3in screen and full live view, 3.9fps burst shooting, 15 point autofocus and RAW mode. That sounds like plenty to get you up to Annie Liebowitz speed in no time, huh?

You can snaffle it with a lens or just the body right now.  UK prices are coming, so keep it locked to for news as we get it.
