Canon EOS-1D Mark II N & EOS 5D Digital SLRs

For the professionals and serious hobbyists, the release of the EOS-1D Mark II N and EOS 5D should undoubtedly be worthy contenders for your next leap in photography equipment. The former is aimed at satisfying both press and sports photographers while the latter is more for commercial/professional photographers and serious hobbyists. Both digital SLR models utilize CMOS image sensor technology and are powered by Canon's proprietary DIGIC II digital imaging processor. Along with the two new digital SLRs were two new EF lenses with Image Stabilizer feature and a new speedlite modeled 430EX.
