Canon 6D Link on Second 5D Mark II Listing

Dual Canon 5D Mark II Listings - Second Link Went to Canon 6D Page

[UPDATED: See revised screenshots at bottom.]

For a little while last night, Canon Australia had second listing of the 5D Mark II; however, it was in a folder directory for the EOS 6D.  I grabbed a few screen shots before it disappeared.

Canon EOS 6D URL Directed to Duplicate Listing of 5D Mark II

All of the content on the Canon EOS 6D link appeared to be a duplicate of the content found on the 5D Mark II page of Canon Australia’s site.

Could we really be getting another model between the 5D and 7D lines?  Perhaps a lower-end full frame aimed more at still photography, while the 5D line gets pushed deeper into the video realm (or vice versa)?  Any thoughts?

The listing is gone now and the URL for the Canon EOS 6D now takes you to an error page.

As pointed out by 1001 Noisy Cameras, the dual 5D Mark II listing is back and it is still linking to the Canon EOS 6D page.  Although the content is still for the 5D Mark II.  See the annotated image below that shows the URL when mousing over the link.

Enough Canon rumors…get a life and get outside and start using the fine cameras that Canon already has in its lineup!

Hi! I think Canon would be naming it Canon 6D instead of 5D MarkIII. Why? I guess since it would come out with an articulating LCD then it should belong to the 6 Series, just like 60D, 600D and now 6D.

My guess, is as good as your guess.

Hope it would come sooner.

When is rhe new 5D or 6D mark III coming out? Would it come with the new 24-70mm f2.8 IS USM II?
