    No, they don't. Canon has a full consumer videocam lineup as well, and they felt the pinch of the D90.

    As long as Sony resists putting video in to their dSLRs they WILL fall further behind. At this point I would imagine that the only reason is that Sony wants to get the AF thing right before release.

    With the Nikon D90, D300s, D5000, Canon T1i, 7D, Panasonic GH1 (and leaked GF1), Pentax K-7, Olympus EP-1 (and rumoured E-5 and EP-2) all with video mode through high quality, interchangeable lenses...
    Well, every other major manufacturer has at least one.

    Well, as has been said many times - not a question of IF, only a question of WHEN.

    Talking Hail to the "stick in the mud"

    Okay ... I can honestly wait. I did not buy my new DSLR to shoot movies with it. Plain & simple. I know of a whole bunch of other photographers who also appreciate SONY keeping it "pure", either by "design" or by cautionary involvement. I assure you, the feature is not missed and is often viewed as a "valuable resource eater." Footage takes up space.

    @Ryan: Amazon has the Canon EOS 7D (Kind of an odd-Canon-number for an APS-C 'wannabe FF') on Pre-sale for $1699. You just need some lenses with stability built in EACH ONE ... and man, you should be set. Good luck in the "movies!" I wonder what kind of vertical grip this baby uses?

    I mean, if I didn't have so many SONY-mount lenses, already ... I'd have to buy more! LOL

    (psst, whatever that A7xx is going to be ... it'll knock the socks off this thing! It may be worth the wait ... put down the life preserver.)

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Canon 4D Official Leak

    Apparently our posts on the possible costs of the Canon 5D replacement attracted some attention at Canon. I have an old friend high up in Canon USA who frequently travels to the home offices in Japan, and he contacted me yesterday with some "allowable leaks." The news is good for Canon fans. The 5D replacement, which will be called the 4D (even Canon balked at the implications of "3D," apparently), will be out by August. It is slated to have an innovative full-frame 31-MP CMOS sensor with switchable IS in-the-body. But the real news is that the full 31-MP is reserved for a "big print" mode, usable only up to ISO 800; the real meat is a half-rez 15.5-MP mode in which the camera gives it highest image quality and best high-ISO performance. In this mode, the camera is said to better the sharpness and resolution of cameras that have no anti-aliasing filters (think Leica M8).

    The 4D will be 19% lighter and approximately 30% smaller than the current 5D. Although the eventual cost will be $2,995, there will be a generous $1,000 rebate for at least the first month after introduction and possibly as long as three months, to counter the formidable challenges expected from Sony and Nikon—making the introductory cost a very aggressive $1,995. "Canon has no intention of relinquishing the leadership position it has gained from decades of innovation and superior products," quoth my contact. The introductory price in the U.K. (where it will be called the 4AD)? A mere ฃ1,049.

    Doubt Canon will call it 4 anything. 4 means death or something in Japanese.

    Wiping out a whole number, because of some silly language problem ... seems a little over the top. But, I have heard worse ...

    According to the Google translator, four means ... 四つ ... OMG ... that's FOUR! We're doomed! I'm sorry, we need to call a "spade" a "spade" and be done with it. Traditionalism can be somewhat counterproductive.

    Artic Silver was a thermal paste product from them. they had AS3, skipped 4 and had one called Artic Silver Ceramic and Artic Silver 5. This was years ago and since then I have never seen any Japanese product with a 4 in it unless it is 40 or 400.
