Could this the 5Dmkiii or the 5DX?

I stumbled across this blog on AppetureAccademy.
The writer seems to have met a man who could be testing a new canon DSLR, it looks kind of like a 5d mk2 and kind like a 7d.

What ever it is it will be a while before we can all get our hands on it. Its been about 3 and a half years since the 5d mark2, its about time for an update and its gonna have to be good!


Read the original article below…


“I’m currently on a shoot in Kenya, Africa, and I ran into a Japanese man sporting some gear I didn’t recognize. While his English was very limited, I was able to confirm that he works for Canon and is doing in-field testing with the new Canon 200-400mm with built-in teleconverter. He also was testing the new Canon 600mm. 

 What I also noticed was a Canon camera body that I hadn’t seen before. You can see it in the photos I took…I see the “Q” button located by the big wheel on the right, which on the 7D is currently located on the top left. The battery grip seems to have a joystick. I also noticed a “Rate” button…hrm, any ideas?

Is this the new 5D Mark III, or maybe the 7D Mark II? This info I was not able to determine. 

I’ll tell you this, that Canon 200-400mm is on my shopping list as soon as it’s available. He told me he thought it would be officially released on March or April.”
