I was just booking a rental with Vistek in Toronto and the rep fed me that the 5D MkII would be out this Fall with the same 16MP full-frame sensor as the Canon 1Ds Mk II. In the same breath he confirmed the 40D would be out in a matter of weeks.

Hmmm, to buy a current 5D when the price drops or the 5D MkII. I doubt I really need 16MP so I'll see what other goodies get added before I decide.

You can buy mine secondhand (but in XLent condition) when I upgrade!;):D

That would be a step back in my opinion. High ISO noise is better on the 5D than the 1DsII. I'd rather have a cleaner 12MP than a noisier 16MP. Here's hoping that it's 16MP but in a redesigned sensor instead of reusing a sensor with older tech.

Digic III isn't magic :) The 1D III has better high ISO performance than the IIN because of redesigned microlenses as well as Digic III processing. The 5DII won't have that benefit if it reuses the 1DsII sensor.

Upgrade before Christmas then, that way I can get my Mum to bring it over when she comes to visit (she's in Lincolnshire). Hmm, maybe it could be my birthday/Xmas pressie from her since they are only 2 days apart ;)

Interesting. I hope the 5D upgrade won't be noisier than the original.

Ditto. I really really hope Canon doesn't just plop the old 1D sensor in there thinking higher MP is the end-all.

At last we now know what the 5D upgrade will have!

It will have all the 40D features including the 'improved' weather resistance (not weatherproofing!)- the only difference being more MPs (16.7?)

And that's it.

but where is it ??? :confused: :cry:

I hope it has more than the 40D otherwise the only point in owning it is full frame. The current 5D has much better tonal control and DR as well as lower noise than the 30D which is another reason (other than FF) that makes it very attractive.

I'm hoping it's out early next year. I've been waiting for it for 9 months now and I'm tempted to get a 40D to hold me over... ;)

Next February - it'll be around next February. At least that's my guess.
Sensor should be based on that of the 1D3, just as the 5D was based on the 1D2. Around 15.5 to 16 Mpx.

I expect a few additional features over the 40D, but not much. ISO 50 and 6400, perhaps an improved viewfinder over the present 5D (maybe with an available split-image focus screen??), a few invisible "assist" AF points around the center like the present 5D. I'm going to guess 4 frames per second, with a bit larger buffer than present.

I would hope that it's at least as noise-free as the present model, if not moreso.
