No 5D replacement...but 50D

I don't really post on here very often (mainly because it seems everyone is always talking about Nikon nowadays), so question my "credibility" if you wish.

However, I've been shooting two MarkIIIs for the Baltimore Ravens for the last two seasons (one of which just displayed error 99 for the THIRD time after two factory fixes...body replacement pending...cross your fingers) They did a great job of covering the Ravens Cheerleaders Swimsuit Calendar though.

I just visited my local Canon retailer this morning. The owner just got back from a Canon meeting is Hawaii. I asked him if he knew anything about the potential 5D replacement...He said, no, nothing before the end of September. Apparently at some photo convention in Germany.

However, he did say that a 40D replacement is coming shortly. 50D, 15mp, weather sealed..Didnt get too into spec talk cause I'm not it that market. He couldn't remember if it was 5 or 8 fps, but he said it was pretty cool.

Again, doubt if you may...I thought I would share.
