No, it’s not been announced. However, Gizmodo caught up with a Canon rep at PMA and had the following to say regarding the 5D:
Interesting bit just tossed our way by the Canon rep when we asked about a 5D follow-up, slightly paraphrased: The EOS-1Ds line (their full-frame pro DSLRs) is on a three-year upgrade cycle. The 1Ds Mark II came out in 2004, and the Mark III dropped in 2007. The EOS 5D came out in 2005.
Right, it’s cryptic and all, but that’s got use thinking Photokina, eh? The 5D arrived in August ’05, so we should be looking toward August ’08 on the 3-year upgrade cycle? Nice catch Giz.
For more info, stay tuned to the Canon 5D Mark II page.
