actually i was just talking to someone about this in a shop today.

they are expecting something like a 3D to come out instead and try and milk the 5D for a little longer.

but something is likely to be anounced come august or september, if anything happens with the current situation in Japan.

what do you think a 3D will have (besides an attractive price tag)?

he was saying hopefully it will feature a auto focus similar to what can be found in the 1 series cameras.

but beyond that, no real idea.

don't quote me on any of this, this could have just been a camera store employee day dreaming.

yeah... pretty much everyone's making up rumors and such. This is why Canon needs to give us some authentic info.

problem is, the 5DmkII still sells well, so they don't really have to rush.

but it would be nice to see some new gadgets, i don't need more megapixels, just refinement.

yeah, the guy was saying that hopefully there will be some news soon, the stock piles of cameras are starting to dwindle, pretty much the only companies that are safe are Samsung and Lica

just cuz something is more powerful, doesn't necessarily make it better...

btw, I've been waiting for the damn 5Dmk3 since middle of last year. I wish I bought the mk2 before prices skyrocketed.

so far so good. i did update the new firmware.
the feel though is pretty much the same as the D90 but it's definitely much faster.
duo card slot is a plus as i can assign the second slot for video
16mp is insane and fills my SD card quickly when shooting in raw
