I think the major production of this new plant is DSLR body,
because of one line of above link.
"New Canon plant in Chiayi Dapumei Intelligent Industrial Park will start product 5D2 from June 2012"

If correct, that means no 5DIII until late 2012 at the earliest...

J-Man:
Makes complete sense to have some redundancy in case of another earthquake.

Re. 5DII hard to say when the replacement will come, if true, then I think it's more likely to see a 3D & 1DsIV
this summer/fall.

NXT1000:
hello canon, at least go to someone there are no earthquake. Like europe or singapore or thailand, why go from one earthquake prone zone to another earthquake prone zone?
this is crazy.
