    Finnaly, this long awaited camera is oficialy announced. Is 1999$ in US, 1999 sterling in UK, and the battery grip for it is 249$. A much more detailed presentation can be found here:

    By afraid, this camera is not for me. Has no mirror lock-up, which is esential for astro photography. It's a pitty, to say the least. Even my old 60D has mirror lock-up. :(

    And the most funny from a long line of dissapointed video previews of this camera. For the fun part wait until the finall minute. With Kai Wong, featuring Gordon Laing.

    I wasn't aware that it didn't have MLU. Do you have a source for this? In any case wouldn't Live View suffice?

    Here's the quote I found referencing MLU: "I would like to see mirror lockup with self-timer featured in this camera, but the 5Ds and 5Ds R remain the only current EOS models supporting this useful feature."

    No mention that it doesn't have MLU just doesn't have MLU with a self timer. Not trying to nitpick but that's a big difference.
