Wow, that's great. I hear it's beyond breathtaking.

Looking at this:

http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canoneos5d/

I think I actually prefer my 20D. The two main reasons:

Built-in flash, which I need for events;
5 frames per second continuous speed, which I need for action.

Still, I'm sure the megapixels are super.

Thanks, I've been reading dpreview for years though.

Built in flash does the job for some, but not for professional work. I make my living with my cameras.

The 5D has the same frame rate as the 10D, which I'm used to and it is perfect for what I do - very little action and almost always studio conditions.

But yes, the 12MP will be good. They will satisfy my clients who have been asking for larger files.

Believe it or not, my built-in has worked fine for professional work at events. But I understand that event photography of groups at tables or standing together is not the same as what you're doing.

I wish I had a studio, with more advanced equipment. Someday, perhaps.
