On canonrumors ..........

1Ds Mark IV before 5D Mark III?
We’re told August will be a major announcement month. The 1Ds Mark III replacement and 3 lenses will be announced. No detail into what lenses.

5D Mark III to follow soon after according to a few folks.

It probably won’t be until July when we started getting solid stuff with specs and a clearer picture of what’s coming down the immediate pipeline.

Guess I am gonna have to leave the money home Tuesday when I take my lens in for repair.

Might be worth waiting for the 5D3 since its not that far off.

Nothing I've been told for the last couple of years makes me think the 5D3 will predate the 1Ds3 replacement...

If the 1Ds '4' comes out in August, I'm putting my money on the 5D3 being a 2012 camera for delivery (and quite likely launch too) ;-)a


bye for now

Canonrumors isn't really known for their stellar track record in far-off predictions, either, though. So who knows.

The rumors are the 1Ds3 replacement (whatever it ends up being) will have a different and better image sensor than the 5D3. 1Ds3 replacement is said to be 40+ MP while the 5D3 at around 28 MP. So there won't be the problem they had last time with getting the same resolution and IQ for $2700 instead of paying $8000 for the 1Ds3.

Yet they didn't even put a rumor rating on that post which makes it sound like unsubstantiated email/forum posting junk.

That will mean the 5D3 gets announced in Aug! :lol: Which might be possible now since Canon is getting back to 100% production a lot sooner than initially expected (after the tsunami) while Nikon is look at getting back to normal sometime in the Autumn.

My neighbour's uncle who worked at the local Canon HQ as a janitor <ahem>....hygiene specialist said he saw a memo with the picture of a 5dIII and words around it while cleaning out a waste paper-basket. Possibly feature set?

Being a simpleton couldn't careless and remember the features. He was only able to say that the camera is black and EOS. :D

The 5d was announced in August of 05. The 5d2 was announced in July of 08. I think it's safe to assume that the 5d3 will be announced around july-ish of this year.

With lenses that were announced last year (400 2.8 II ) not due until at least December now, due to Japan's tsunami, I would not hold your breath for a 5D III to hit the shelves in the foreseeable future
