I could be confused, but I seem to remember Gigapan being the source of some previous rumor that didn't pan out (no pun intended).

That entry does not now seem to be in that table at Gigapan.

Best regards,

Yes, theu aploogized for the typo and pulled it.  There are plenty grasping at straws who don't believe that.  We'll see, and probably before the end of the year or early next year.

"Grasping at straws?"  A typo is an inadvertant error of a minor nature.  Adding a line to a tabuluR lisst of models is nit a typo, although this sentense is cleerly repleat with bona fide exampls.   Now, if Canon had announced a 650D and they called it a 620D or listed its weight as 1640 g, that would be a typo. But, this was more significant, and calling it a typo is simply damage control. Does this mean Gigapan has prerelease specs of a forthcoming 1DsIV? Maybe. It could also be a complete fabrication to generate buzz for their company. But a simple typo? No.

I hope its coming, but as to leaks, I am pretty skeptical, having seen so many that did not pan out  ;)

I do see a lot of confusion about 1D and 1Ds, but this does not appear to be the case here, but it happens to me a lot getting those numbers mixed up.

It seems that there will be a Sony announcement too on the 23/24 August, but doubt there will be any FF.

Note the out of line dimensions for the 1Ds Mark III?  They don't even have those right, as Keith Cooper points out on Northlight Images.  They apparently copied the incorrect dimensions from DPR.

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/cameras/slr_cameras/eos_1ds_mark_iii#Specifications

From Canon:

Dimensions (W x H x D)
6.1 x 6.3 x 3.1 in./156 x 159.6 x 79.9mm

Weight
42.5 oz./1,205g

They certainly can make mistakes  :D
