Press materials for the Canon EOS 5D states that it defines (a) new D-SLR category', while we are not usually too concerned with marketing talk this particular statementclearly pretty accurate. EOS 5D digital SLR is not like before because it combines afull-frame (35 mm in size) high-resolution sensor (12.8 megapixels) with a relativelycompact body (slightly larger than the EOS 20D, although it feels in your hand feels ')chunkier'. EOS 5D is aimed to slot in between the EOS 20D and EOS-1Dprofessional digital SLR, an important difference when compared with the last one is that the EOS 5D does not have the environmental seal. While Canon do not specifically refer to the EOS 5D as a 'professional' digital SLR will have obvious appeal to professionals who want a high quality digital SLR in a body lighter than the EOS-1D. It will also no doubt appeal to current EOS 20D owners (although lets hopethey're not too much to buy EF-S lenses).
