Well also a 7DSV and a 5D MK II is listed. Wonder where they got all this information, would seem odd if Canon had delivered all this information by now.
What's your point? As Dr. Croubie figured out above, the 7DSV is the 7D S
ersion which was released last year (it's the 7D with different firmware that allows an admin to lock out some functions, and is compatible with a barcode reader to add that to the EXIF data). The 5D MK II
was released in 2008, remember? The 1Ds IV is the only unreleased camera on the list.
It's not really surprising that Gigapan got the information, assuming it's real. I'm sure Canon has a long list of vendors to whom they deliver specs and in some cases engineering diagrams ahead of time, so things like L-brackets and other accessories can be designed and released in reasonable proximity to the product. What is surprising is that it's still up on the Gigapan site. That a mistake by Gigapan, and will probably result in them being taken off the pre-announcement information vendor list.
This may represent a slip-up by Gigapan, or possibly an intentional act, whether or not the data are real - as pointed out, they probably don't sell that many of their products - and this 'slip' has certainly garnered them a lot of attention (sufficient motivation to fabricate the data).
Still, it's one more piece in a growing body of evidence that a 1Ds IV is coming out soon - we all know the well has been dry for too long, and it's almost 'announcement season.' Plus, I've got this big pile of cash waiting on something
...maybe a 1Ds IV, maybe a 500mm f/4L IS II.
