It looks that way.

And I heard it might be called the 3D.

Really?? 3D if they split the camera into two different versions? or just 3D - that's it.

I thinks so ,since the existing 5D is doing so well I guess Canon is not in a rush to add the new one to the collection. it seems that  even  Nikon D300 wasn't enough to change their mind:(

I read somewhere that Canon couldn't use 3D as it is a registered trademark ? Too bad, I'd really like to see the equivalent of my EOS 3 with a full frame sensor...

I noticed Canon has registered in January on the UPC database for the 7D. It has not, however, updated the PictBridget listing as it did a month prior to the release of the 40D. Perhaps it learnt from last time.

On one site it is listed as a 7D, but on another it is listed as the EOS 5D Mark II 20 MP.

Someone has also registered for a Canon 70D and a 320D.

5D with 20 MP would be very tempting :)

I am hoping for a 3D with 22 mp's.. similar specs to the 1Ds Mark III except a smaller body.  I think having the option to have the small body or added battery grip is one of the nice things with the current 5D

And then a 7D with 16mp's and lesser other features - more like the current 5D

Whatever they do, it will need to have 20MP or more. Sony will  most probably put their 24MP sensor in the 5D competitor, and although there won't be hordes of photographers changing to Sony, not much is needed for studio work. Just a body and a couple of good lenses, like a 100 macro and a 24-70 zoom.

Another interesting alternative is the Pentax K20D. 14MP and very good image quality, also at high ISO. Their lenses aren't bad either. And the price? $1,300 for the body. The Samsung version will be even cheaper.

Since Canon are discounting the 5D like a *insult removed* and if you believe all the chatter on other forums they can't sell it I believe that canon might just keep this body going indefinitely, there may not be a market justification to repace it. I feel pretty sure that they would have replaced it by now if they had any intention to do so.

Here's hoping, although 15.3 is too small for an istock XXL.

15.3 is quite reasonable number taking into account 10-12 megapixel of cheaper models and 21 for Eos 1D (whatever Mark number it is). But this is still speculation as it has been for the last year.

But it's big enough for an StockXpert XXL (15MP)  ;)

I have owned 5 generations of Canon DSLR's and the 5D is hands down the best by a huge margin.  The images from that camera (with the 24-70 L) still blow me away every time I look at them. 

Can hardly imagine wanting to upgrade unless they come up with some pretty major improvements. 

My only complaint about the camera is the sensor dust so whenever I do upgrade down the line sensor cleaning will be a must. 

I recently bought 40D to have as a backup with onboard flash and the new menu system and live view on it don't impress me at all.

The 5d sensor is a dust trap.  I never took my lens off from buying it and the sensor still attracts dust.  I tried dust-aid but that didn't remove much of it.  My 400d with the canon dust removal still has some spots on it though, so I don't know how effective it will be on the new camera.

I use liveview for precise focusing when taking tripod land/cityscape photos. Do really appreciate this feature a lot for this type of work.

Good to know live view is helpful for some types of work.  Guess since my work is mostly people I haven't had occasion to use it.    Maybe if I ever decide to give landscapes a shot... :)

The new model has sensor cleaning.

http://gizmodo.com/381810/canon-5d-mark-ii-supposedly-surfaces-online-due-in-june

I should add, this is everywhere on the web. It is supposedly a screen short of the de Canon site. But when you check the url at the top the backslashes are forward slashes etc.

A BIG FAT FAKE methinks.

I think that is fake, because of the grammar. It says: Die EOS 5D Mark II mit Vollformat CMOS-Sensor mit 16 MP. I as a German would think that Canon would write it in a better German, with only one time mit. It does not sound very well with two mit.
But I might be wrong.
I just checked the German Canon Site. And it is exactly as if this was a screenshot. And some parts of the description were copied from the description from the old EOS 5D and 1Ds Mark III.
One thing more which lets me think this is fake. Just above the 5D Mark II you can see the last sentence of the 40D description on the screenshot. I do not think they would put the old 5D down so fast. As you see on the German Canon website: http://www.canon.de/For_Home/Product_Finder/Cameras/Digital_SLR/index.asp
the 450D as well as the predecessor the 400D are still on this site. Why should the old 5D not be on there as well?

In the may/june issue of American PHOTO there is on page 25 an advertisement for Canon cameras, with three bodies : EOS1Ds ; EOS1D ; EOS 40D...
As if the 5D was no more on the catalog (yes, I know the 450D is missing too, but this advertisement is rather pro-oriented).

And in Europe you get a 200 rebate with the 5D...

June ?
