Canon Launches Blockbuster 7D D-SLR at 18MP, 8fps, 1080p Video, all at $1699

Canon this morning introduced the much rumored Canon 7D D-SLR. Cramming 18MP into a compact (1.6x multiplier) sensor the camera can run at a brisk 8fps. It comes with an all new and massively configurable AutoFocus and metering system. Sensor technology improvements help the camera retain good high ISO performance even with the relatively tiny (hardly more than 4 microns each) pixels (photosites).
