Now that Nikon has an upcoming entry-level full frame DSLR up their sleeves with the $1500 Nikon D600, the Canon rumor mill is busy churning their own entry level counterpart. Thanks to Canon Rumors, here are specs that we may be getting with this $1999 Canon full frame DSLR:

  • 22mp (Same sensor as 5D3)
  • 19 AF Points
  • 4fps
  • ISO 100-51200
