Making sure not to let Nikon get all the limelight, Canon’s new EOS-1D Mark IV is bound to steel some of the thunder from Nikon’s latest DSLR behemoth, the new D3s.

Today, Canon’s announced the new EOS-1D Mark IV, a pro DSLR camera with specific designs catered to those looking for speed (action, sports, news, wildlife, etc). The new EOS-1D Mark IV is built around the new Canon 16.1 megapixel APS full-frame CMOS sensor and a brand new 45-point Auto Focus system (versus Nikon’s 51 point). Utilizing not one, but two DIGIC 4 processors, the Canon allows you to shoot up-to 10 frames per second (how far are we from 30fps?) at an ISO range of 100-12,800. Coincidence that the Nikon’s ISO is 200-12,800, priced $200 more, and shoots at roughtly the same speed? Doubtful.

More images after the jump.

Cost: $4,999
