5D Mark III & More Information [CR1]

5D Mark III & More Information [CR1]

Random bits of information
5D Mark III (or similar) announced in the February timeframe.

  • Different sensor than the 1D Mark V
  • It is still not clear whether it will have 26, 28 or 32 megapixel.
  • The sensor tech of the 1D Mark V will be used for future crop bodies e.g. the 7D Mark II.
  • The 7D Mark II is a late 2012 camera.
  • Expect significantly better noise reduction in high ISO modes.
  • Another full frame camera for sports and press this fall?
  • Announcements could be as early as the week of August 29, 2011.

EF 14-24 f/2.8L
I’m told this will be announced in Q1 2012.

CR’s Take
This is a big [CR1], I am posting information that is at least plausible. Grain of salt and all that. Various rumor sites are going to get a lot of stuff coming our way in the next few weeks, sorting it is always a challenge.
