Canon 5D rumors from inside....

I brought my 5D to the Canon repair center to clean the sensor(I'm too afraid to do it myself)
I started to speak with one of the canon technician
Obviously i asked about the 5D mk II......

First of all he told that even inside the Canon world, until the very last moment you can't be sure what the big guys from Japan will decide to announce

All Canon employers are speculating on rumors and if there are lucky on some camera test prototype seen

Canon rap. clamming what is coming or not coming in next big show are just fooling!!!

What is said to me is that he actually saw, back in December 2007 evidences of a new Pro canon camera

He said that as far he could see Canon is thinking soon to produce a pro camera that would include some of the best feature of both 1D series

15.1 MP (full frame)
14 bit
1 Digic III
Iso 100 to 6400(up to 12800)
AF like 1Dmk III
3 fps
3 inch screen
A sort of smaller 1D body,with integrated grip but not rear lcd panel
1 slot flash card

He also spoke about a 5D replacement coming probably after

12.8 MP
14 bit
1 Digic III
iso 100 to 3200 (up to 6400)
Improved 9 point AF
4 fps
3 inch screen
Improved body

Prices? no one knows

he thinks the 3D(or whatever they will call it) closed to the 1D mk III
The 5D replacement close to the actual price

I personally hope the new pro will come out now!!!

But once more as he said: "What we see and we hear are often what actually it will not come out"

thanks for listening
