Canon EOS 5D Mark II rumours leaked in Amazon field guide
· 13 Jun 2008

EOS 5D upgrade for August? - As Amazon let slip news of a Canon EOS 5D Mark II Field Guide, is the long awaited camera about to hit our shelves? ePHOTOzine investigate.
Canon EOS 5D Digital SLR

When released, the Canon EOS 5D Mark II will be a replacement for the three-year-old EOS 5D.

Rumours have been circulating this week about the imminent release of the Canon EOS 5D Mark II after Amazon released a Field Guide for the not-yet existent camera with a release date of November 2008.

Unsurprisingly, the product has since been removed from Amazon and publishers Wiley are now claiming the guide's name was an error on the part of an employee.

Barry Pruett, publisher for Wiley said: “The title mentioned is a 'place holder' we put in our system and was inadvertently posted externally outside the company. We publish hundreds of titles a year and each title must be placed into our system well in advance of the published product, so we create place holders for titles. We already have the new Microsoft Windows titles scheduled and that’s at least three years away.”

“The fact that the information was published was an honest error by a new employee. There is not a camera to our knowledge, but we do know Canon will someday produce a new digital SLR.”

Should the camera make an appearance at any date in the near future, it will serve as an update to the EOS 5D released almost three years ago in August 2005. The 5D features 12.8Mp CMOS sensor, DIGIC II image processor, 2.5in LCD and is capable of 3fps. Currently dropping in price (presumably in preparation for the release of the 5D Mark II), the 5D is now available to buy for £1,275, a £1,265 reduction from its original price tag of £2,540.

Rumours surrounding the specification of the 5D Mark II predict that the camera will feature a 16Mp Digic III Image processor, 14 bit RAW, 3in LCD, Live View and sRAW format capabilities.

Robyn Rendle from Canon declined to comment on the camera's impending release, but if speculation of the 1000D is anything to go by, the 5D Mark II could be with us any time soon. We announced rumours of the camera on 21st May and it made its appearance less than three weeks later on 10th June. Watch this space!

...the image you include in your post shows the "Mark II" logo on the camera...but when you go to the link...the camera image there does NOT have the "Mark II" logo!

-Pretty well shoots down the images as fakes-in-progress...
...but what else is new???

The field guide is old news and has been discussed to death.

The photo with the mkii logo is probably a fake. It has the Japanese text surrounding it to make it look legit but it came from a site that also houses a video of a car going around a track, not from a Japanese site. The site also has a .eu domain extension.

The part I thought that was odd/funny is how this thing shows a camera that is identical to the current model, which i doubt anyone thinks a 5DII will look exactly like the current one.

But then the one odd thing is the little whitish dot (AF assist beam?) on the image above is shown on a spot that it's not on the current 5D. Maybe the person decided to try to do one other little thing since you can't see the spot of the current 5D in the image.

Hmm, I bought a new car in 1972, 1978, 1987, and 1998. Does that suggest that I'll buy another one soon?

An AF assist beam from there wouldn't get past many lenses in Canon's catalogue.

Re: Outdated
In reply to PhotoTraveler, Jun 15, 2008

Every new Eos version subtly and slightly modified in appearance. This Mark2 is identical. No go! - Besides the 5D already looks terribly outdated with its all round sides. The trend is to combine a round smooth curve followed by a sharp corner and then repeated again and again. Not only in cameras, it's everywhere in industrial design. Personally, I spotted the beggining of this trend on Opel automobiles back in 2002.
