I believe it IS a Digit 6...  That Digic 5+ is getting long in the tooth in computer terms!   ;D :o

Well, the rumored small DSLR was specced with Digic 5. Unlikely they'd announce a powershot with a more advanced processor at the same time. So I'd guess one or the other is an error.

But then, what do I know.

Some camera has to come out with the Digic 6.... If they are in production it makes no sense to not use it.

Digic 6??????

Oh, Canon, what have you done to us!!!!!!
DIGIC6 ??

that would be great. but i guess it´s a typo.

Why not? Digic 5 was first introduced in the Powershot S100 (Dec 2011), if I recall it right. Correct me if I'm wrong, my memory's no longer what it used to be  :( . And Digic 5+ may likely be still better than digic 6. Maybe we'll see the Digic 6+ in the 70D and 7DII, who knows...

DIGIC 6 to appear first in a PowerShot??
I guess this correlates with the DIGIC 5, as well.

You are correct about the Digic 5, however, an S100 (RAW, 1/1.7", F2.0) is a very different animal from the SX2x0-line (1/2.3", 20x zoom, f/3.5, JPEG only, single control dial).  To be fair though, the SX40 HS was annouced at the same time as the S100 with the Digic 5, so maybe what we'll see is an S120, or a compact DSLR camera with an 18MP APS-C sensor in it also with a Digic 5.

I was wondering when the Digic 6 would be released.  I was hoping they wouldn't put the 5 into the big MP that's been such a secret...   ;)

Afraid you may be right, the 5D3 can no longer take a decent picture, its useless, send it for scrap. Its a conspiratorial plot they don't know how to run a company. I'm off to Nikon.
If you debate with a fool onlookers can find it VERY difficult to tell the difference.
