Your rumour was the most correct I've ever seen! :shock:

Something will be released sometime in the future. <-- Amazing accuracy, it's uncanny.

:lol:

I wonder how many prototype cameras there are out there that never make it to production.

There is a top avaition pro over on FM that is very well connected with Canon. He was told to expect a new camera with in the month to play with. He shoots MKIII and 1DSMKIII's....wouldn't make sense for Canon to see him anything other than the next series 1 body.

This and the price drop of the MKIII is looking pretty interesting.

I have to admit, I will be amazed if Canon actually does break tradition and release a 1D prior to February 2010.

I'm begining to believe you're correct. With the recent announcement of the D300s, it's looking more like the 50D needs replacing just so Canon can keep up. Dang the 300s looks nice.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

I want to buy a new camera too. I would like to trade the 21mpx of the 5D2 for a faster frame rate and better AF. 100% viewfinder seems normal these days and weather seals, with Pentax, seem like they should be able to make it into a canon model too. I don't care if the camera costs the same as the 5D2.

Gads! I do hope it's the 1D MkIV that gets announced. I'll be so annoyed if it's just a 50D with added video. I've been quite successful at resisting getting a second-hand MkIII for the last few months - just because I'd be really diappointed if the MkIV was released soon after.

What tradition?

1D - Announced 25th Sept 01
1DMKII - Announced 29th Jan 04 - 2 1/2 year gap
1DMKIIN - Announced 22nd Aug 05 - 1 1/2 year gap
1DMKIII - Announced 22nd Feb 07 - 1 1/2 year gap

So extrapolate on that, TODAY IS THE DAY - 1 1/2 year gap (we live in hope!) Anything other IS a break from tradition. No the other way around. And the Japanese love tradition (for which we salute them!).

IF I see one at Park Cameras today, I'll do my best to take it's picture!

Ooh I'm excited now!


Mike

Make sure the picture is blurry and out of focus. You don't want to break THAT tradition. :p

Hmmm from feb 07 to aug 09. [counting fingers.. one, two and a half] so according to your calculations it should have been announce a year ago :p WOW how could we have missed that ??

I think Jake is spot on. I see the 1D MK IIn as an updated model and if we exclude that from the timeline the next one will be announce in jan/feb 2010.

Now hows that for a prediction.
