Canon 5D Mk II Rumors: Hoax or Blunder?

The latest buzz floating around is whether Canon Germany's website has blundered by briefly publishing the anticipated EOS 5D Mark II, whose screen capture seems to confirms that it will feature a 16 Megapixel sensor, a 6.5 fps shooting speed, the new Digic III processor and a weatherproof body, or was it a hoax.

Since I'm on the tenterhooks of impatience for a Canon 5D successor, all this is irritating. The screen grab is shown on Wired's website, and some people have dismissed it as being a fake...since the image of the new camera looks out of alignment with the rest of the images, and why wasn't the full web rundown page for the Canon 5D II been grabbed as well?

I'll suspend belief until I physically see the 5D Mark II at the retailers.
