An announcement at the end of August 2016 for the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4.0L IS USM Mark II appears to be pretty sure :-)
Canon press release:
Canon presents check to NCMEC for funds raised to help protect and save missing children.
As part of the evening’s festivities, Toyo Kuwamura, executive vice president and general manager, Business Imaging Solutions Group, Canon U.S.A., Inc. presented a check in the amount of $466,392 to John Walsh, co-founder of NCMEC, representing the total amount of money raised and donated, as well as the approximate retail value of products donated by Canon U.S.A. to NCMEC in 2016. Joining them for the check presentation was New York Yankees pitcher Chasen Shreve.
UPDATE: the page has been removed.
Edit: changed post title since it was a bit misleading. They do not accept pre-order right now.
Still not sure that the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV may be announced soon? Change your mind.
The announcement is expected for August 25/26. But well known online retailer DigitalRev already has a dedicated product page for the EOS 5D Mark IV, though without any specs or pictures. However, if you want to be among the first to get this highly anticipated camera, you can register to be notified as soon as pre-orders are available (just click the orange “Notify Me” button”).
We know very little about specs so far. The most rumored sensor resolution is either 24MP or 28MP. It will likely feature WiFi and GPS, Dual Pixel AF is also likely, as is a new AF system. We will soon know more.

Amongst all those unreliable if not faked Canon EOS 5D Mark IV rumors, we have another one to add.
Our sources always told us the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will have a 28MP sensor. We just got another mention on this sensor resolution (thanks), though from a new source.
Other rumors suggest a 24MP resolution, the latest murmurings talk 30MP (which I don’t consider anything to be taken seriously).
Be aware that so far there are no reliable leaks on the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. The only thing you really can count on is an announcement at the end of August (so it gets ready for Photokina in September). Hence, for the time being keep the salt at hand. Given Canon’s newly developed secrecy, the first reliable information will show up just a few weeks before the announcement.
