This latest baby comes with a 16.1 MP APS-H CMOS Sensor which is a huge improvement over the 10.1MP of the Mark III. As far as the ISO Range is concerned, the sky is the limit with numbers reading 100 to 12,800 native, up to 102,400.

Another highlight of this product is the autofocus which is 45-point area customizable and is assisted by 39 high-precision cross-type focusing points. Talk about image processors and you get a couple of Digic 4 options parried together.

Continuous shooting happens at 10 frames per second and as far as the video recording is concerned, you get a 1080p Full HD privilege. All those shots and videos can be previewed through a 3-inch 920k pixel preview display on the rear of the DSLR.

What is more is a connectivity option of WFT-E2 IIA wireless file transmitter over 802.11a/b/g and ethernet
which is something the professionals will relish. [via: Engadget]
