there are many rumors on the web. Much of the proclaimed stats seem reasonable based on the tech advances we've seen in the past 3 yrs at Canon.

However the date is still somewhat a mystery. I was hoping we'd see an announcement on the 26th. The latest rumor on date is the 9th or the end of Sept.

Waiting a month or two for the newer model is fine - but if its going to be another year - then i'll go down and buy the current 5D now. Ive called the local camera shops - they cannon get body only any longer and their ordering kits seems to be limited a well.

With some of the knowledge in the community - and without violating any NDAs, some advise would be much appreciated (wait or buy).

Cheers!

Photokina starts September 23rd. If they are going to announce anything in the near future, it will be between now and then. Many companies start to announce major new products in the month before, but Canon might be waiting for sometime during the actual trade show from the 23rd to the 28th.

If I couldn't live without a full frame camera, then I would buy a used 5D, they are going for $1600-$1800 over on FM, then when the MKII comes out you will only stand to lose $300-$500..

But looking at the huge upgrade the 50D is over the 40D and knowing that Canon has to out-do the Nikon D700...

The 5D MkII is going to be a beast!

Nothing reliable I'm afraid, but rumours on another site I frequent are for September 15th.

Why?

Well because of this page from the Canon site which appears to be a new camera being partially lit lit by the moon.
http://www.canon.com/moon/en/index.html

This month the full moon fals on the 15th so the Canon watchers on the other site have put 2 and 2 together and came up with 15.

Personally I use Nikon, but I will still be watching with interest. It promises to be a great camera.

Well the guessing is over on the next 5d model. the moon site this morning is releavled. 5D MKII it is.

What has not occured is a press release from Canon - an official announcement and hense the specs. There is rumour from a magazine quoting Canon says the official announcement is at 8:00 AM this morning. This was however a French magazine so I would have assumed that they were referencing thier own local time. We shall see.

...and the press release that wasnt posted at the time of my previous post

http://www.usa.canon.com/templatedat...17_5dmkii.html

Nice specs. Not surprising it closely matches the rumours. One big difference was the fps. rumours were that it was going to be 6-8fps. 5D MKII comes in at 3.9fps. Looks very nice though. wondering when we'll see the SD card added.

General availability - end of November with an est price of 2699.00.

Nothing on adorama, BH, or Amazon as of right now for pre-orders. But I am waiting for this bidy - I will post as soon as there is a place to order them.

Just preordered it from Brightscreen. Let me know if any of you are interested in my 5D.
