That's a cool and scary camera - full frame, is slowly becoming cheaper?
SB-400, 28-200/3.5-5.6 AF G, 50/1.8 AF D, 60/2.8 AF D Micro-Nikkor, 105/2.8 AF-S VR G Micro-Nikkor, 70-180/4.5-5.6 AF D Micro-Nikkor, 200/4 AF D Micro-Nikkor, 70-300/4.5-5.6 AF-S VR G, Nikon PB-6... Yes I quite like macro.

Sorry, I'm having a blonde moment, what are leading with on this one?  Or is it just another model:  350/20/5/1ii/1Dsii, far too much choice.  Ignoring the 300/30/60/10/and the "i" models.  

Oh it has a black-and-white (monochrome mode), didn't the Dynax 5D do that first??

Mind you I guess this is another competitior for the Dynax 9D already!?

KM have the:
- 5D entry
- 7D serious enthusiast
- market should be ready for the pro model now?

Wow, so Canon 5D and a KM 5D.  Back in the the Olympus OM days the first camera was the M-1, Leica winged, and Oly changed it to OM-1.  Hence the original M-1 was worth a bit on the collectors market.  Go get your 5D now!  :lol:

Canon 5D is 3fps, but full-frame.  Canon 20D is 5fps but APS-C

I think the Canon 5d is an excellent camera. But once you start shelling out over a grand, even 2 or 3, then thats exactly what you expect to get.

I think it's relatively affordable in comparison to their other full-frame cameras. Both the 1Ds and the 1Ds MkII were around $8,000 when first released.

I'll agree that they've probably come up with a few superfluous models, but I think more is better than less.
