1001 Noisy Cameras has the latest Canon EOS 7D Mark II and Canon EOS 5D Mark III announcement date rumor, recent DPR forum post is suggesting that previously reliable dealer (as far as rumors goes) suggesting the Canon EOS 5D Mark III and Canon EOS 7D Mark II will be announced within a month.
Below is the excerpt from the DPR forum thread.
My local dealer, media markt, claims that the new 5d3 and 7d2 will be announced within a month and in the shelves this summer. The sales representative was so sure and convincing that I am selling my 5d2 before the price drops. He claimed the sales team already prepares for the rush of totally 7 new models/updates from Canon and Nikon, and that the new add’s from media markt are being prepared formthis as we speek!
I hope its true!!
Anyone else who heard this?
As with the other Digital Camera sites that have reported on this rumour we here at Canon Answers don’t hold much faith in this one. Reason being is that Canon never announces two DSLR bodies at the same time, also the Canon EOS 7D was only just recently released and still has a bit of time before it is due for renewal.
If anything based on rumour activity we have been hearing here we would be expecting a Canon EOS 5D Mark III to be announced in the September to October timeframe no sooner with release late this year or early next.
Given that the Canon EOS 7D Mark II release date rumour so totally and obviously incorrect we should not be giving any trust to this source.
