I've got absolutely nothing to contribute to this conversation.  I just want to be a part of what will surely be an internet sensation.

The bird on the Display is indeed a Guineafowl, a Helmeted Guineafowl. It even shows the subspecies expexted in Kenya, the shot could well have been taken in popular Masai Mara:

Excellent work, I was wondering what that bird was!

EDIT: Just a thought, what if the missing flash, larger pentaprism, and strange inner viewfinder borders means that this is a 7D mk II with APS-H?

EDIT 2: Just realized this APS-H theory was brought up before.

I'd be very surprised if this was a replacement for the 5D2 as it's got so much of the 7D about it. Also why would you test a 5D replacement on wildlife? That's 7D territory isn't it?

The large pentaprism housing could simply be that large for aesthetics / ergonomics and it is still APS-C or maybe H.

Interesting that no-one seems all that bothered that the 200-400 and 600 lenses are clearly on show here but all we care about is what body he's using them on!

Yep, why a 5d in the wild?...
I repeat wht I wrote before: in 2007 canon celebrated their 20th EOS anniversary in the same Kenya safari and introduced their
 sporty camera the 1dmIII...

A portrait of a bird with a 600mm lens, so can we say it's not a full frame body ?  So a 7D mk II looks more realistic ::) Of course we ignore the distance between this guy and the bird but...

It's too bad the guy who shot those photos didn't ask the guy what camera it was.  The tester didn't mind telling him that he was testing a 200-400 and 600ii, and that he was a tester for that matter.

Oh well.  My vote is 4DX

The picture seems to be zoomed in very far, judging from the tiny white square/spot inside the big black (grey) rectangle representing the full photo size. It's not a frame-filling bird portrait, I don't think. Or maybe it is, and it's just a really big bird...

If you check the screen, it's also zoomed in to 100% view, and if it's 25mp's, then it's pretty far in.

Oh dear god, no.  Not that stupid mode dial unlock button.  To me, that's one of the most useless additions that Canon can put on a semi-pro body.  I can see the reason for putting it on the 60D, but come on.  Anyone using a 7D or higher should have some idea of what they're doing and in all my years of photography I've never heard of anyone accidentally switching the mode dial unintentionally.  If the new 5D is in fact coming standard with the unlock button, I hope that one can "downgrade" and remove it.  Even for a fee, I'd do it.


I'm also really digging the new grip.

I have, running 3 cameras shooting video and kept accidentally turning the dial while turning the camera on.  I mean when you flip the switch its pretty easy to accidentally nudge the dial at the same time, it happen several times.  I kept thinking someone was switching it to aperture priority and was getting very frustrated.  It happens, maybe not to you, but it does.  You don't have to use the lock if you don't want to.

One thought, if both cameras are full frame, then the two combinations would give the same approximate field of view for a direct comparison (560mm vs 600mm), as the built-in extender has been flipped in.

This thread is cracking me up.... I just realised I came up to turn my computer off, 2 hours later I'm still at my desk, thinking I need to wake up again in 6 hours. Love this site!

FWIW I ran one of the pics through errorlevelanalysis.com - no signs of photoshopping....
