    Oh, these rumors have been killing me on the rumored "4/22" announcement date for word from Canon.

    As per this morning's rumors of a "leak" on a German website, it appears to be claiming 16 MP, 6.5 frames/sec? and waterproof?

    Perhaps I should be asking if anyone reading here who would happen to know when any relevant Non-Disclosure Agreements might happen to expire?


    The waiting is as bad as for Apple announcements :D

    Man in the pub told me it's going to be the 7D

    In fact the release is so far ahead of schedule they've started the recall already.

    That German 5D rumor is days old and was essentially "proven" to be a fake. We're still looking at the fall -- that would put it exactly on a 3 year refresh cycle, the same as both 1 series cameras.

    I see you sold a 5D.
    Do you have any suggestions as to where else (besides MR marketplace) we should post this entire Canon kit for sale?

    Awesome setup. Truly a full package.

    I think that fredmiranda.com has a buy/sell forum.

    Not really the place for cross posting, but you should have no problem selling it on Photography-on-the.net or Fredmiranda.com

    You have to pay to sell on fred miranda but its worth it. I did and I've sold everything I've listed almost immediately (never up for more then a day or so)

    Its $25 per year to sell on FM and they've got a huge, wealthy buyer community :) Very nice people too.

    I have been waiting for a update to the 5d for over a year now, and thought with the new Nikon out canon would have something shortly. Oh well maybe in the fall?

    The 1 and 5 series camera are on a 3 year update cycle. The 1D was updated last year (after 3 years) and the 1Ds was updated last fall (after 3 years). The 5D is rumored for this fall at Photokina - which would be 3 years after its introduction.
