A recycling of past rumors has made its way around again, this time talking about a direct replacement for the EOS 5D Mark III, as well as a cinema version for the 5D line.

First up, the Canon EOS 5Dc. These specs first appeared back in February.

  • 18MP
  • 61 point AF system
  • ISO 100-204.800
  • 4k video (source says Canon has yet to define the frame rate)
  • Dual Pixel AF III
  • Many advanced video features
  • Features taken from Canon’s Cinema cameras

Second up, the EOS 5D Mark IV. This megapixel count first appeared in March.

  • 28MP sensor
  • 12fps
  • Dual Pixel AF III
  • New and more advanced AF system (compared to EOS 5D Mark III), apparently it will not be the same AF as the 5D Mark IVc
  • Anti-flickr technology (seen first on the EOS 7D Mark II)
  • Crop mode (featured on the EOS 5Ds)
  • ISO 100-204.800 (expandable to 409.600)

Before the EOS 5DS & EOS 5DS R launch, we had heard there would be 3 cameras carrying the “5D” moniker, and we assumed the EOS 5DS “R” was one of the cameras. However, in the last few months, there has been talk that the EOS-1D C would be replaced by a 5D style cinema DSLR camera. If the EOS 5Dc rumor is true and it's priced in the $3500 range like all of the “5D” cameras, that would make the XC10 & C100 Mark II tougher sells than they already are.

This is interesting to say the least, but we can't confirm how likely this set of rumors is.
