5D Mark IV Out In The Wild, Expected Announcement This Year

By Anthony Thurston on May 20th 2015

The reports are saying that the rumored Canon 5D Mark IV has made its way out into the wild to be field tested by trusted Canon ambassadors across the globe.


This reaffirms the current line of thought in the rumor circles that the 5D Mark IV will be announced towards the end of this year. If I had to guess, I would say it would be some time around the end of October or beginning of November. There’s only one major show that time of year – PPE 2015 –  which would make for a perfect launch point for the new camera.

It is rumored that the 5D Mark IV could feature a brand new image processor, likely called the DIGIC 7. The updated processor has been rumored for development of the upcoming flagship EOS-1 D X Mark II, and many think it could also make its way into the 5D Mark IV if development moves along as expected.

The 5DS and 5DS R are coming next month, and review units are starting to make their rounds across the web. You can get your pre-orders in over at B&H if you still have not done so and are planning on it.

But as mentioned above, still many months to go before a 5D IV announcement.

    Last week I was at a concert in Gulf Shores, Alabama, last week and noticed a man with a Canon camera, but all the markings were not there. The body was gripped, Canon blacked out, and nothing at the lower right of the body. The photographer had a new 100-400mm lens mounted. I approached him and he refused to give any information about the camera. I’m not saying this was the new Mark IV, but could be a partial Mark III with some added bells and whistles. This is how Canon developed the 7D Mark II.

    Cool…my MKIII has been around the block more than a few times and probably ready for replacement.

    Oh well, I fell into this “Analysis Paralysis” syndrome in 2013 when I was researching what Canon DSLR to buy. It took my wife to snap me out of that syndrome of APS versus full frame and reading the rumor sites. I bought the 5D Mk III.

    I have a 5D i, ii and iii, each better than its predecessor, and have loved each one but the Fuji X-T1 rocked my world in April, 2014 and that love affair is still going strong. Nonetheless, I am still looking forward to the specs on a new 5D.

    I am crossing my fingers for spot metering at any AF point. Why they save that for the 1D series is beyond me.

      That’s always a delicate marketing balance. If you put all the capabilities of your top end camera in a lower end camera, will that end up affecting top end sales?

      Some say yes, others say no.

      Each corporation has to make that decision. Nikon puts this on cameras other than their top lines. Canon chooses not to.

      Who is right? They both are…. for their corporation strategy.

    Canon needs to improve on their image quality to regain the quality it had over a few years ago.
    I wonder how the image processor will deal with the image noise. I Guess we can expect clear images up to ISO 25600. That would rock!

    Looking forward to it!

    I hope this camera turns out to be what people wanted it to be. I know a lot of photographers are looking forward to learning more about what this can and can’t do better than the 5D3
