Tried the 5D MkII and learnt that 1d MkIII won't be produced any more

Don't know if this is "old" news but I had a chat with a Canon rep. (they were on a a promotion tour for the 5D MkII) and the person told me that the production of the 1d MkIII has been teminated. Guess a new PJ camera is around the corner..?

Re. the new 5D the rep. also said that trying to see the difference in noise levels between the 5D MkII and the D700 would be hair splitting at an atomic level.

As a Nikon user I found the new 5D to be very pleasant. Build quality seems a big notch up from the old one. The autofocus is not (and does not have to be) in the same category as the D700. Video is VERY cool (although massive storage space will be needed!). Image quallity I'm sure will be top class. And, I really liked the "silent" shutter.
