"Let us reflect," he said in photographic context. 

The 5D is a FULL-FRAME digital body with an easily viewable 2.5" LCD and 
it's "not much better than a 20D." So you were expecting $8000 1Ds Mark II 
innards for $3300? Given the 20D's happy following, I'd say "any" 
improvement is a bonus. 

Bonus No. Next: The 5D offers Leicaphiles the option of using at least some 
R-Series glass in addition to all the Canon auto-focus stuff.
