There’s not a lot of information coming in about the replacement to the EOS 5D Mark III, which we expect to be announced no earlier than the spring of 2016. All signs point to it coming after the successor to the EOS-1D X.
The latest thing we’ve been told is that the camera would have a higher resolution than the EOS-1D X Mark II, which at last count would be in the area of 24mp. While the camera would remain a good videography DSLR, again we’re told that 4K is not part of the plans for the EOS 5D Mark IV.
We do wonder if we’re going to see another split in the EOS 5D line, with a lower megapixel option for ISO performance and something in the high 20mp’s in resolution for the masses. We’re seeing nothing that suggests we’ll get a cinema version of the EOS 5D Mark IV, but there continues to be hints of multiple cameras coming.
More to come…
