Canon EOS 5D Mark III Replacement Talk [CR1]

Over the last 48 hours, we’ve seen and heard a lot of talk about the EOS 5D Mark III replacement. Nothing I’ve seen has come from a known source, but I’ll pass it along anyway.

These are direct quotes of what we’ve been told or seen.

“Next 5D will be announced around NAB and will be called 5D X. 4k is certain, moderate pixel count and new AF system based on 1D X II. No separate video-orientated version.”

“We have been told Canon upcoming Canon 5D series camera will have Canon Log and Wide DR gamut. [source]”

“The next full frame body from Canon will also move to CFast, along with an SD card slot. Which I assume is for 4K video.”

“The follow-up to the EOS 5D Mark III is already in testing with a select group of photographers and is basically ready for production beyond obvious software tweaks.”

Everything above is rated as [CR1] and comes from different places, please treat the information accordingly.
