After all the "leaks" and hype, the long-awaited Canon EOS 5D Mark II is finally official. Here are the highlights:

  • 21-megapixel full-frame sensor
  • 1,920x1,080-pixel video at 30fps
  • Maximum ISO 25600
  • Digic 4 image processor
  • 3.9fps burst unlimited JPEG/14 raw with UDMA card
  • 15-point AF
  • 920,000-dot 3-inch LCD
  • Live View

I'll post a more meaningful analysis and comparison later today. The EOS 5D Mark II is slated to ship in November for a body-only price of $2,699 or in a kit with the EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens for $3,499.
