6D will have to wait untill late summer

I heard a rumour that 6D is going to be announced just before Photokina, probably sometime between late August and 20th September. One of the reasons on why it wasn't announced now, right before PMA, was that Canon already announced 2 cameras last Fall and 450D just a few days ago. Besides that, Canon needs an announcement for Photokina and 6D is the only model that could be announced so soon. In my opinion, there could also be a 1D mkIIIn or even a mkIV. 6D is supposed to be a real upgrade, so 5D mkII won't be an option. It's reasonable though, after 3 long years minor updates should be out of the question.

Here are the rumoured specifications:

- 16 mpix, ISO 100-6400 (extended 12800)
- Digic III, 14 bit A/D, highlight priority with respectable DR boost (1+ EV)
- 3" LCD with higher resolution and live view
- dust reduction
- some changes to the body design, partial weather sealing
- 4 fps
- improved AF system (probably just improved 40D's AF)

I hope the new sensor will be even better at high ISO than Nikon's D3 and that its dynamic range would at least come close, if not on par with Fuji's S5.

If it was an upgrade, wouldn't the model number go down (3D) rather than up (6D)? Given the existence of a film analog in Canon's line, EOS 3, I would think than Canon already has a tweener strategy - a merger of 5D and 1DIII, both of which are probably nearing the end of maximal product life. They need to break the 16mp ceiling though, which has been used to protect 1DsII product equity; slower frame rate, less durable body...nah. It's time.
