(That hurts!!! Well - It has been a while...)
Some rumours here.
The specs rumoured dont entice me personally , a couple of extra stops in noise/iso can be gained by a better lens , and more megapixels ? ( 21 is more than enough ) depending on how much cropping or massive printing you do , personally I can vouch for the mk2 as a fab camera , I have two of them , and I think the current prices are very good too
Was talking to one of the sales staff in Calumet today. According to him Canon are selling 10 5d MkIIs to film makers to every one to stills photographers. If that is right I would expect any upgrades to be aimed at the video functions.
Quote: Sounds like the kind of rubbish that sales staff spout. Myself and people I know who've got 5D2s were never asked whether we'd me making films or taking stills.
the reason i ask is if there is an upgrade then 5d2 wiil be very cheap to buy ? i mean what happend to all the 5d1s which must have been on dealers shelfs when mk 2 came out ??
There was nearly 5 years between the 5D and 5DII. You could be waiting a while...
Yes the 5DM2 will be upgraded.
Only Canon knows when.
Current price on a mark 2 is quite good at the moment so why not enjoy the use of the body now instead of waiting an indeterminate amount of time, after which prices could rise because not many can afford the price hike demanded for the replacement.
UMMM So whos got best price for a 5dmk2 at the mo ??

Almost tempted myself but it reduces focal length by 30%

Thats a lot of rubbish. there was only 3 years between the 5d and the mark 2. august 2005 and august 2008. It will not be replaced until august 2011. thats a guarantee.
There is some suggestion there won't be a 1Ds Mk 4 and that the 5D Mk III will incorporate features you may have expected to see in a 1Ds4.
Do they need to do anything other than read across the feature set from the 7D and update the analogue processing?
