No mention of the speculated Auto ISO or weather sealing?


60D, Canon 18-135 IS, Sigma 10-20 hsm, 24-70 2.8 hsm, 70-200 2.8 hsm, 430EX II, and all the other stuff that goes along with it.

There are some interesting comments & speculations about the size of the RAW data ...

12 MB looks too much for just a 10,1 Mpx sensor ... even for the sRAW ... normally the size of the RAW data in MB usually match around the Mpx size .... so that it can suggest (speculation) a possible 14 bits depth  ???

There is no confirmation or leak about it yet !!

Juan, I regularly get 10-12MB RAW files from my 20D, so I wouldn't read too much into the sizes. 14 bits could be a possible explanation, but that would lead me to think that they would have to have a Digic III chip in there to support.

I agree, that´s possible too, but in this moment as I said about this particular aspect, just speculation, still no leak ... or confirmation :)

Nothing yet on Auto-ISO, but there are some interesting things posted over on Northlight Images speculating about weather sealing:

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: 404 | MIME changed to 'text/html' | Byte size: ZERO


Note the rings around the buttons which is similar to the sealed buttons on the 1D's, also the new style hot shoe used by the 580EX II and 1DMIII for sealed connection.

I'm the guy that also sent them a note about the 5D-like side panel:

IMAGE NOT FOUND
IMAGE IS A REDIRECT OR MISSING!
HTTP response: 404 | MIME changed to 'text/html' | Byte size: ZERO


Which leads me to belive that the grip would be changed. The BG-E2 would no longer fit correctly with the thicker body design. It also looks like the body is a bit wider than the 30D, particularly when you look around the CF door and AE-Lock button area.

Finally, I noted that the part number is definitely different from the 20D/30D/5D in the leaked photos:

HTTP response: 404 | MIME changed to 'image/gif' | Byte size: ZERO


It appears to read DS126171 where the 20D is DS126061, the 30D is DS126131 and the 5D is DS126091. The label is also a different shape and orientation from the other three cameras.

If this is a fake, someone went to unbelievable lengths on the details.

jwil, thanks soooo much forthe detailed analyze! now i believe that baby in the photo is the real thing! and it comes with weather sealing! i love it. chose XTi over 30D suddenly became a wise choice because the upgrade is more "necessary" ;)
