Re: Any rumors re 1D Mk IV?

For the record I got the 1D MKIII on Monday, so i welcome myself to the forum!

WHile searching for the best value/delivery options i spoke to the manager of a well known shop in the UK.

Rumor has it that Canon has a replacement for the 1D MKIII ready to launch during the second quarter of 2009. What's holding Canon back is a decision from FIFA ( those into football know who they are) to allow pro-cameras with video capability ( see 5D MKII) during sporting events. FIFA is currently looking into the legal implications with television rights and contracts with broadcasters. If FIFA give the green light then Canon will release the camera.

No comment about specs...
