This is a quote from this weeks Amateur Photographer (UK weekly 1/12/07 edition). Someone was asking the question if to buy 5D now or wait for replacment, the answer was as follows:
'Just a couple of weeks ago Vic Soloman from Canon UK's Product Intelligence division told me there is no reason to update the EOS 5D at the moment, as there is no competition for it. Sounds a bit fishy, but that's from the horse's mouth.
