Is This The New Canon EOS 5D Mark III (or EOS 7D Mark II)?

canon_5dmk3_rearStephen Oachs of Aperture Academy posted some exciting photos of a possible Canon EOS 5D Mark III in his current trip to Kenya, or it could be a Canon EOS 7D replacement, to be honest.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III On The Horizon?

In the image below, you can see that the camera looks like a hybrid between the current Canon EOS 7D and the old 5D Mark II. Noticeable differences would be the button arrangement, the larger hotshoe/prism area, as well as a new battery grip with joystick (finally!) attached.

Logic tells us that if it’s a Canon EOS 5D Mark III, the specifications would rival the Nikon D800 and have some of the recently announced Canon EOS 1DX features trickled down. Based on those info, here are some speculated specs popping up all over the net for the Canon EOS 5D Mark III:

  • New 22 Megapixel Sensor
  • New DIGIC 5 Processor
  • EOS 1DX 61-point AF system (unlikely, possibly a larger version of the 7D’s AF, if Canon follows the 5D’s AF past progression)
  • GPS tagging built-in
  • Faster 5fps burst
  • 100-25600 Base ISO range
