Apparently some Canon reps technicians have loose lips and while jawing about how unpredictable their bosses were about announcing things, may have leaked a few specs for a phantom camera set to fit in between the 1D Mark III and the 5D. He also mentioned some possible upgrade specs for the 5D — maybe now is your chance to buy a used 5D on the cheap as all the pros ditch for the new freshness. The “3D” is rumored to have a smaller body but still a 15.1-megapixel full-frame sensor. And 12800 ISO? Yes please! See the rest of the shady specs after the link.

The rumored “3D” is to feature:

15.1 megapixels (full frame)
14 bit color
Digic III image processor
ISO 100 to 6400(up to 12800)
AF like 1Dmk III
3 fps [only?]
3 inch screen
A sort of smaller 1D body,with integrated grip but not rear lcd panel [not sure what this means]
1 flash card slot

The supposed 5D replacement:

12.8 megapixels
14 bit color
Digic III image processor
ISO 100 to 3200 (up to 6400)
Improved 9 point AF
4 fps
3 inch screen
Improved body

We’ll see how this pans out. Interesting to say the least.
