Canon 5D II: 9.17.2008?


A well-established, reputable and very popular French magazine, Chasseur d'Images, has posted an article on its website predicting that the much-awaited successor to the full-frame Canon 5D will be announced on September 17 at 8:00 am.

It is expected to have a full frame, like its predecessor, but with 21 megapixel Digic IV processor, a magnesium alloy body, Live View and video mode, with a price of around $3,600.

Why was September 17 chosen? Well, if you check the Canon Evolution ad you'll notice that the silhouette of the new camera is emerging out of the shadows following the progressive phases of the moon, and full moon is due on September 17.
