Various sources around the internet are quoting that it is highly likely that the next Canon EOS 5D to either be named Canon EOS 5D Mark III or Canon EOS 5D Mark X will be announced in just a couple of days on 27 or 28 of February 2012.
With the Nikon D800 announced just a few weeks ago we are thinking that an announcement from Canon sooner rather than later
Specifications for the expected Canon EOS 5D Mark III / X 27 February announcement date include:
- 22 Mega Pixel
- 61pt Autofocus
- 100% Viewfinder
- 3.2″ LCD Screen
- Dual CF/SD Card Slots
If speculation is correct the Canon EOS 5D Mark III / X will hit the shelfs at around US $3,500, there have also been rumours that there could be a dual release with two separate mid-range full frame cameras. i.e. but we think there is not enough evidence to back up there rumours.
