We have been hearing quite a bit about the Canon 5D Mark IV and the high megapixel versions that will be part of that release. It has always been said that the release could come in the early part of 2015, and now we seem to have some more clarification on that point.

Canon 5d mark III

According to a report coming out of Canon Rumors, the new 5D bodies will be announced in March, not at CP+ in February like many had been thinking. This could possibly point to an official announcement at WPPI, which has its Expo running from March 2-4. Generally WPPI is not a big event for gear announcements, but given the 5D’s strong portrait and wedding demographic, it could make a lot of sense to announce them there.

Personally, I would love to see the new 5D models announced at WPPI, I will be there. That said, it is also possible Canon does its own thing, and announces later in March, making a big deal about the multiple models.

It will be interesting to see how this all pans out. It really seems as if Canon is having a shift in how they are doing things. It has been said that the giant had grown too big and moved too slow. Well, now the giant is turning, and im curious to see what it is up to.

What are your thoughts on this? When do you think the new 5D models will be announced? Leave a comment below!
