Canon EOS 5D - successor this year?

Discussion in 'Canon' started by Donald Specker, Jul 12, 2007.

  1. Having opted to wait to buy a digital SLR, I'm now wondering if there will
    be a successor to the 5D this calendar year. In the late winter/early
    spring everyone was speculating on the new models, but nothing has shown up.
    Thoughts on Canon's timeline?

    Thanks.

    Lots of rumors the 5D MkII is on it's way perhaps in the fall. If true, I
    expect it to be priced about the same as when the 5D was released: $3200.

    A non-pro friend has been waiting for full-frame prices to come down for two
    years as he thought by now he'd get a full-frame for $1500. You see, he did
    not want to make an investment in EF-S lenses. But finally he's given up and
    decided to stay in the consumer line and get the EF-S 10-22mm for his 1.6x
    crop body. Good choice, for him, IMO.

    The 10-22mm is an excellent choice. Anyway, you can do almost
    everything with the smalller sensors that you can do with a 5D.
