Looking for the 'ultimate' DSLR camera? It pains me to say this as a Nikonian, but it's Canon that has the right to that title, with its just-released EOS-1D X. Replacing both the 1Ds Mark III and 1D Mark IV, the EOS-1D X is designed to suit all sorts of professional shooters. It's faster, even more capable and brings a couple of new things to the table.

No ROM battery
>> The EOS-1D X is packed as it is, but taking things to another level, it includes a 1Gbit/s LAN port right on the body. This can be used to transfer photos at a rate much faster than USB 2.0, and also be used to daisy-chain multiple cameras together.

Now, I'm just picturing 6 cameras positioned around a fountain shooting at 12 FPS for a few seconds before switching to another exposure mode. Or 4 cameras recording a full panorama video. Everything computer controlled.

There's actually a bank close by that is poorly guarded... hmm...
