R5 mark II rumor, too good to be true?
2

From "Canon Rumors Guy",  canonrumors.com,  here are the new rumor: [CR3]

Canon EOS R5 Mark II Specifications (Rumored):

  • New 61MP CMOS BSI sensor
  • Dual DIGIC X processor
  • 30 FPS electronic shutter with tracking / 12 FPS mechanical shutter
  • Same 8-stop IBIS
  • New High Resolution mode similar to pixel shift shooting found on Sony/Fujifilm
  • 2x/4x/8x digital tele-convertor
  • Same Dual Pixel CMOS AF II from EOS R3 and EOS R6 Mark II
  • Internal 8K 60p video recording (8K RAW video spec to be confirmed)
  • Internal 4K 30p/60p/120p video recording (all by oversampling)
  • FHD 240p video recording
  • Focus breathing correction for video
  • New overheat prevention design similar to EOS R6 Mark II, at least 40min for 8K video, and over 60 min for 4K video
  • Dual CFexpress type B card slot
  • Standard HDMI port
  • Dual USB-C port
  • 9.44M-dot EVF
  • New design of vari-angle LCD monitor optimized for video shooting
  • Launch time: 2023 Q2

This seems a direct match to Sony A7R5, with video specs exceeding it. Given Canon's history of crippling video on still cameras, these spec seems too good to be true?
