Please do a High ISO noise test in RAW with the 5D3 and the A7s. With the 5D3 files downsampled to 12 MP. I'd be especially intrested in 25k, 51k, 102k streetshots...Thanks and great offer and idea! This must be a lot of fun. Regards, Peter.

Mine was bought well after the fix, and has a serial number 06202400XXXX.
In any event, I found that removing the lens cap results in better photos :D

Lol!!! made my day, mate!

Rumor seems like natural conjecture based on the potential "revolutionary" sensor tech rumor of the 7D.  So, it may be one of those rumors based on a rumor. 

But, three years is reasonable, just a bit earlier than I was expecting.  It may depend on how "revolutionary" the new 7D tech is.  My guess, we are looking at late 2015 or early 2016 for the 5DIV and 1DXII.  The 5DIII is all I need, but a 8 fps, and another stop of ISO performance and I'll probably upgrade. 

As for other areas of possible improvement, there is a good list going, just to about making all AF points cross type, more (all?) f/2.8 and AF with f/8.

If the 5D series is the "wedding camera" I can see the f/2.8.  The f/8 may be more for "wildlife" cameras like the 7D and 1D series.

Yes, docsmith! Another stop of ISO improvement would be VERY welcome. 51k like my 20-25k on the 5D3 now. But I guess that this depends on MP count, fast digic(s) and wether Canon are willing to do it or not. But as mirrorless cams (Sony A7s) get great high ISO specs (understanding that it is a 12 MP sensor) Canon might seem to be kind of forced to equip especially their higher end models accordingly...No need for ISO 204k on a future 5D. But really improved ISO 12.8k to 51k is on my wishlist. Either in a 5DIV or a 5DV.

Keith, I like your page and I like every rumor out of it ;-) As well as Craig's.

I got a slightly different question, off topic in a certain sense:
What are the two of you thinking about the next 6D?
Currently shooting mostly nightsky (MF via 10x LV), otherwise using center AF point only, the 6D would absolutely "do" for me somehow. It came out shortly after I purchased the 5D3, things happen that way ;-)

The only hesitation I have with the 6D is that it doesn't offer a CF-card slot.
Is this likely to happen with an upcoming outing sometime after these rumored upper level cams?

If so, I might go for one, although the 5D3 is a perfect allrounder and I will keep it until a 5DV appears, if it doesn't break or anything like that.

I'll take one if X II native 52,000ISO = 12800ISO current X

Dylan77: What will this mean for the 5D4 in "native" ISO? In nightphotography tests, the 1Dx was recommended without hesitation for ISOs 8k to 12.8k, while the 5D3 was referred to as an ISO 5k cam due to its pixelcount. Can we expect about 3/4 to one stop improvement in high ISO in RAW with the 5D4? I hope Canon will remain with the +/- 22 MP. As I guess, that real improvement in high ISO IQ happens along with improved sensor tech and same MP count, otherwise we'd endup with an "evolutionary" new body only.

To what extent could this discussion here be kind of foreshadowing what we are going to see sensor-techwise and IQ wise in a 5D4/1Dx2 ?

Although it is different tech, and a mirrorless body with much less MP as well?;topicseen#new

In relation to these rumored new cams, what year did R+D actually start? 2012? How long are these product  development cycles?

I've seen a lot of $5,000 deals lately, either sales are poor and dealers have to dump them, or Canon is planning a replacement this fall.  Its only two years old, so that seems unlikely, unless its just a minor mid life upgrade like Nikon did to the D4.

I would expect some sort of replacement sometime in 2015.  All other 1D series cameras were  around for 2 to 3 years.  Only the 1DsMark3 lasted longer. The 1DX was announced in late 2011.

Seems like you were dead on:

EOS Bodies / 1DX2 5D4 to be announced in January/ February 2015
« on: June 22, 2014, 03:13:52 PM »
Over at NL I just read:
21st Both the 5D4 and 1D X mk2 are to be announced January/February of next year, we're told (thanks).
The 1D X mk2 will be announced first (potentially late this year), but will ship later.
Both will incorporate significant advances in sensor design, which mean that there will be no high MP '3D' class body this year.

The info suggested that this was what was being tested in the studios we heard about last month,
(we've read it here:
and that elements of it woud appear in the upcoming 7D mk2, but that the real advance would not be seen until next year.

@CR guy: did you receive any other, supplementing news by sources which were accurate in the past?

What could the specs of a 5D4 be in ISOs? "native 51K"? Let's say ISO 25.6k like my ISO 12.8 on the 5D3 today? I just hope in case of the 5D4 they don't raise the MP count but improve the great allround cam significantly in IQ high ISO wise.

Whatever the camera is capable to do, I just like the ongoing evolvement in digital photography and I think, Canon are rollin' with the flow as well. So what today my 5D3 stands for will evolve further. By let's say 2018 I would just like to see a cam with "native" ISO 51200 like my ISO 16000 on my 5D3 by now if well exposed to the right. Well, time will tell.

I think this is a technically impressive camera and a bold move my sony. I predict this will be a train wreck sales wise. Sony is lucky that across all three variations they should do ok as they clearly share a lot of components, but this particular model will not do well.

How come that you think it's doomed to fail? I consider it a bold step ahead in relation to other competitors...especially price tag wise. They should even do it with a current DSLR type of cam. But as mirrorless cams evolve, A7s users will hold a particular outing of days to come in their hands.

Interesting camera.  The high iso capabilities are clearly it's strongest attribute.  But I prefer much more than 12mp personally.  And the 4k "support" seems misleading as you have to pony up 2grand more to fully leverage it.  A yawner imho.

12 MP are way enough for me. If my memory doesn't fail, there were some fellow posters here who opted for a low light cam with a lower pixel count. I would be absolutely in for such a beast either in the 6d or 5D segment. Although I think, Canon might leave the low light king to the 1 series... but a mirrorless beast with nice ISo 51k might be great. Maybe, the overnext 5D will do the job  8) Anyway, the 5D3 is way enough camera for an amateur tog like me!

tidbits of rumored info by "CR1" sources... 8) Is the small amount of rumored information a sign for a bigger innovative splash techwise? e.g. sensor?

I consider usable to be the point at which you don't need to use NR.

That's an intresting definition. Sometimes a bit of noise adds to an image, sometimes not. A mirrorless 12 MP Cam by Canon would be very welcome. Just hope that Sony offers their product at a reasonable price. The 51k look pretty fine to me. Wonder how Canon improves in sensor tech and low light capacity, and if they are willing to pass it down to 5Ds and 6Ds as well. Or will they keep it all for the 1Dx segment?  Should I buy another 5D within the next 6 years I hope for the same MP count and ISO 12800 like ISO 4000 on the 5D3 now.
