Canon EOS 5D Mark IV murmurings (nothing really new) [CW3]

Canon RumorsCanon Rumors
A rehashing of old Canon EOS 5D Mark IV rumors in a package mimicking new information surfaced on the web. Some of the suggested specs leaked first here on Canon Watch.

  • The EOS 5D Mark IV will come after the EOS-1D X Mark II announcement
  • Q1 of 2016 is the ship time Canon is aiming for
  • EOS 5D Mark IV will have 4K (we were the first to report this)
  • New Speedlite metering system coming with the EOS-1D X Mark II and EOS 5D Mark IV
  • Sensors ranging from 18mp to 28mp are in testing for full frame cameras. I suppose this implicitly means “in testing for the EOS 5D Mark IV”. We were told something else, and I wonder who really believes the EOS 5D Mark IV will have an 18MP sensor (but see next point)
  • EOS 5DS and EOS 5DS R were a test for “two model viability”, a model split of the EOS 5D Mark IV still possible. First reported on Canon Watch, Canon may announce a second, cinema oriented EOS 5D Mark IVc with an 18MP sensor
  • New DIGIC processor

All in all nothing that hasn’t been rumored before. I agree with the possible announcement at the beginning of 2016, though it is still possible that Canon may announce the EOS 5D Mark IV at the end of 2015. The reasons for a 2016 announcement of the EOS 5D Mark IV in 2016 may have to do with issues with the new TTL flash system Canon is developing. Hope we will soon get some fresh EOS 5D Mark IV rumors. All EOS 5D Mark IV rumors.
