I am 99% positive we’re going to see a new DSLR next Tuesday, all the clues are pointing that way and I’m willing to give it a [CR3] rating.
What camera? No [CR] rating on this yet.
Everything is pointing to a new 1D series camera, I am getting zero information from sources or from anywhere else on the web about any other camera. We started hearing 6 months ago that the next EOS camera would be a new 1D and the bits of information are all pointing that way again.
For now the best spec list I have is what I posted a few days ago.
- Full Frame
- ISO 51,200
- Dual Digic V
- Crazy frame rates of 12-14fps have been reported
- 61 AF points has also been reported
Stock levels of the 1D Mark IV also point me in this direction. It seems they are very much being built to fill orders. There doesn’t seem to be any excess stock too many places.
A far fetched spec list?
An amalgamated 1Ds/1D Spec List.
- 61 AF Points
- Native ISO of 100-51200
- New Battery
- 150g-200g heavier that current EOS-1s
- October 18 Announcement
Currently this is the only information I’ve seen in regards to such a camera. I’d rank this as highly unlikely for the moment.

Another spec list torn apart by the community. The crop factors are off to a lot of people. APS-C isn’t 1/1.6.
Received 8 spec lists today! I expect 1.6x more tomorrow.
1D Mark V
A new claimed spec list of the upcoming 1D Mark 5.
We’re still getting conflicting 1Ds Mark IV & 1D Mark V model names. I’m still not sure what the new flagship will be called.

Go on and discuss what you think. This is fairly inline with what we’ve heard previously.
I received a couple of emails today saying both the 1Ds Mark IV and 24-70 would be arriving in two weeks. This will be before the IFA event in Berlin.
1Ds Mark IV
The 1Ds Mark IV briefly appeared on Canon’s official web site. You can check that out at Photography Bay.
I have to admit, all is still pretty quiet on the rumor front. One person has suggested we may get up to 3 different announcement dates in 2011. One for PowerShot, one for a flagship DSLR and another lens announcement.
There has been absolutely nothing saying a 5D Mark III would be announced in 2011. Still a 2012 Q1 product in a lot of peoples eyes.
Quiet at CR
I’ve been away for a few days making sure my marriage remains intact. :)
I received a price list from a German dealer today, omitted on the price list was the 1Ds Mark III and 1D Mark IV. The dealer is a pro dealer.
5D Mark II Crazy Price
Best Buy dumping 5D Mark II’s for what appears to be below cost.

Canon Australia bug or more?
The 5D Mark II is listed twice on the Canon Australia web site, it wasn’t like this a little while ago. A placeholder or a mistake?
*UPDATE* It was pointed out to me that if you click the second 5D Mark II link, the URL says “6D” at the end. *thanks Mike*
Nothing else too crazy today.
