Canon 5D Mk II in Leak

Canon's widely rumored EOS-5D Mark II may have been confirmed through an Amazon book listing this weekend. An entry for a Wiley field guide explicitly mentions the unreleased camera and also mentions a projected November 10th release date for the text, although the schedule is likely tentative and isn't necessarily timed with the launch of the camera itself.

No specifications have been revealed in the listing itself, though past leaks have alluded to an advanced 15.3-megapixel sensor that provides more detail and light sensitivity than the EOS-1D Mark III at the expense of shooting at a slower six frames-per-second rate. An announcement was originally predicted as taking place in late April with shipping in early June, though the slip past this original date now suggests that any actual ship date is unlikely to land until the summer at the earliest.

    Please Please Please

    I really want to replace my 20D, but I want to move past the 40D into a Full Frame.

    The 1D, although an excellent body, is too much for a hobby. :)
