Canon 5D II Rumors


The photo-related blogsphere is abuzzing with rumors that Canon will soon announce an upgraded version of its phenomenally successful 5D camera. It seems that the price for current 5D model is dropping "like a stone" which, to some, means that Canon is clearing its inventory before announcing the new model.

The rumor mill has it that the new 5D will have a 16MP DIGIC III sensor, a 3″ LCD, Live View, a Refined AF (similar to 40D), Semi Weather Sealing and 4-5 fps. The timing is expected to be late fall or early winter 2007.

As my friend Ralph Childs would say: I want one!
