Re: 5D is on the way !!

It's still rather hefty for my tastes (I'd prefer if it was a bit smaller and a bit lighter, closer to a 40D body size, with vertical grip optional), but it's what I need, so it's what I use.

I know that I've said this before, and I'll probably say it again. The only reason why I'm hoping for a 5D successor with exceptionally lofty specs is because the 1Ds III, the only DSLR on the market that suits my needs in terms of IQ, is just too big for me to be comfortable in my style of shooting.

I often end up in physically awkward positions, shooting between 1/60 and 1/10 sometimes with only one hand. That beast of a camera would require me to spend more time with the Bowflex just for those types of occasions.

I'd happily pay the same amount for a lighter version of the 1Ds III, but instead I might be willing to sacrifice resolution if it means that I can reduce camera shake at those times, if the successor to the 5D is good enough.
