Summary: Canon's digital SLR camera line up just got a lot beefier with their new EOS-1Ds Mark II. With 16.7 Mega-pixels and the ability to capture up to 32 consecutive shots in bursts up to 4 frames per second, the 1Ds Mark II delivers performance and high quality imaging pros would die for. Start drooling!
Pros: 16.7 mega-pixels, Outstanding image quality, Great speed
Conclusion: Back in September 2002 at the Photokina tradeshow Canon revealed the EOS-1Ds, their first full frame (35 mm sensor) double-digit megapixel digital SLR (arguably they weren't quite the first as Kodak announced the DCS 14n just the day before, Contax has the N Digital which never really made it to market). Two years later and the new EOS-1Ds Mark II raises the megapixel count by 5.6 million pixels, which equates to a 23% increase in horizontal and vertical pixel count.
Pros: Superb resolution and detail, the highest resolution digital SLR to date, Full frame 35 mm size sensor delivers film-like shooting experience, real wide angle, Huge, bright viewfinder view really fills your vision, Very low noise at higher sensitivities, maintains detail even when noise visible, Impressive four frames per second continuous shooting (considering file sizes), Very well implemented buffering system backed up by fast media throughput, Superbly well built,...
Cons: Edge softness / chromatic aberrations with wide angle lenses, needs good glass, Control system can be a little confusing at first, menu operation different to other D-SLR's, Default sharpness setting is zero which can lead to an initial impression of softness, No anti-reflective coating on LCD monitor, Awkward to switch media slot, No option to write different image formats to different media (eg. RAW->CF, JPEG->SD), NiMH battery adds to camera's weight, still no use ...

Summary: Canon's 1Ds Mark II is the company's new flagship D-SLR (digital single-lens reflex) camera. Replacing the 11Mp 1Ds, the Mark II boasts an industry-leading 16.7Mp resolution, incredibly tough body and a price tag just shy of six grand. So it's firmly targeted at professionals.
Summary: Canon's latest professional DSLR is based on the successful EOS-1Ds model of 2002. Like its predecessor, the Mark II has a full frame CMOS sensor and almost identical body and control layout. However, the new sensor carries 16.7 megapixels and includes much of the functionality of Canon's other current 'pro' DSLR, the 8.2-megapixel EOS-1D Mark II, which was reviewed in issue 19 (October/November 2004).
