    On my own, as a practicing amateur photographer with an ancestor of the new product (Canon EOS 5D), I want to note first of all those things that are really important to me - expanding the ISO range to 25600 and a couple of little things. I would like to believe that the new “five” will produce a live, plastic picture, traditional for 5D, and its quality will not be affected for the worse by an increase in megapixels with the same physical size of the matrix. However, maybe I'm just a conservative. :) Friends, we have been waiting for it for a long time!
