We’re told that Canon is aiming for a March 2016 announcement for the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. Which will be just before the NAB show in Las Vegas in April.
We’re told that once the EOS 5D Mark IV is announced and shipping, that the EOS 5DS, and EOS 5DS R will get a relatively quick update by Canon standards. The new 5DS series camera(s) will get the new 5D4 body ergonomics as well as an updated image sensor, maybe a version of this one? . Yes, “quick” is a relative term, but it does make sense.
We keep hearing about an 18mp sensor we originally reported back in the spring, though we’re not sure what camera such a sensor could appear in, or if it’ll be a consumer product at all. With Nikon putting a 20mp sensor into the D5, I guess anything is possible for the EOS-1D X Mark II or a version of the EOS 5D Mark IV. It could potentially appear an upcoming full frame mirrorless camera from Canon as well.
We’ve received a few other bits of information about the EOS 5D Mark IV, but we’re waiting to hear more before we publish them.
