We present calculated interband transitions and effective masses for diamond from first principles including electron correlation effects via the GW-approximation. Our findings are in agreement with experiments, already the first iteration of the GW-scheme gives a direct gap at the gamma-point of 7.38 eV and a indirect gap of 5.75 eV close to experimental values. For deeper bands a quasiparticle self-consistent method is necessary to accurately reproduce the valence band width to 23.1 eV. We also obtain effective hole masses along different symmetry axes and electron conduction masses, m l = 1.1m 0 and m t = 0.22m 0
