Canon EOS 5DC, Real or a Joke?

Real or a Joke?
I received this tidbit of fun when I was at NAB, just getting around to posting it. It shows a model name “5DC” on an official Canon web site. The one issue I see with the “leak” is that it originated on April 1, so maybe a Canon employee was having some fun?

Anyway, here’s the evidence and direct quote from the submission.

Canon 5DC: Real or Joke?


Direct Quote
Go to google and search for “eos 5dc” without the quotes. https://www.google.com/search?aq=f&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=eos+5dc

Now if you click the link, the page is missing, but if you look at google’s cached version of that page, it has titles and headlines for a Canon Eos 5DC (which I am currently hoping for). But the actual content of the page is for the C300.

But it also says that this was a google snapshot done on April 1, so is this a cruel April fool’s joke for true Canon rumor junkies? See the screen shot. I have a few more scrolling down the page if you need.
