Unofficial 5D Mark II rumor

coming on May 22

  • 16.2 MP full frame CMOS sensor

  • Full weather sealing same as 1Ds Mark III

  • Dual Digic III

  • 8.0 / 4.0 fps

  • much improved autofocus, 29 points with additional 4 micro focus areas around each point

  • much improved screen, 3.0" over million pixels

  • ISO 12800 (C.F. up to 25600)

The camera is said to be coming out in conjunction with two new lens and a camera, one of which is an old school prime. The other camera will be somewhat similar to Nikon's classic FM3A. Some of the additional features:

  • Live View (improved from 450D; latest generation)

  • dust cleaning similar to 40D

  • MSRP $2799, available May 22

  • Photoshop Lite image processor with automatic image adjustment tools

  • Auto pilot mode - a sensor option that "sees" a great composition, takes great picture for you as you scan it with Live View without looking into the viewfinder

  • Auto shutter – this feature pushes the shutter itself – so you don't have to

  • Effect shutter - auto shutter option that takes a photo with cool effect pre-applied to it – so you don't have to.

Enjoy photography folks. Remember — it's more than pressing a button. And more than features on a camera.
