Game over. Sell your Nikon glass. They’re done.
Canon has officially finished Nikon off with it’s new EOS 5D Mark II, a full 1080 HD video DSLR, with almost twice the megapixels of still resolution plus auto inputs (which Nikon neglected in their newest D90 DSLR with 720 HD video), all wrapped up in a Canon pro-quality magnesium body.
Normally, this would just be a link in feed, but this is such huge news that will change multimedia and silence every still shooter’s complaints about carrying around a video camera I’m going to put it out big in front.
With this development, could you see TV stations start buying these now? Shooting straight to digital and grabbing stills? The world is definitely getting smaller.

P.S. Anyone want to buy my 20D?
