5D mkII

I've found quite a few rumours about the so called 5D mkII on various photo forums and sites. So far the rumour that seems most likely is, that it could be launched as soon as November 2007 to "take the edge off" D300 availability – otherwise it will be January 2008 for PMA.


* 14 bit RAW
* 16 MP sensor using the same technology as the 1D III
* 3 inch screen, live view etc.
* Body very similar to the 40D except for different pentaprism / viewfinder etc.
* Upgraded AF (like the 40D but with assist points)
* Limited weather sealing etc. (like the 40D)
* Still not a sports camera – it will be 4 or 5 fps.
* Same firmware features as 40D (highlight tone priority etc.)
* Image quality beats the current 1Ds II
* Pricing still being finalised. Will be 'a bit more than the D300'

A few 1Ds3 ISO 1600 shots

Those shots were posted on DPR forums, CLICK to go directly to the thread. It's a shame the poster didn't post 100% crops, which would really show "the real picture".
