So we have been hearing rumors about how Canon could soon be upgrading its prosumer range of DSLR cameras, like the rumored upcoming Canon EOS 7D MK II which would be an upgrade over the EOS 7D. That being said, it seems that Canon might have plans to upgrade its high-end offerings as well, according to an alleged roadmap uploaded by the folks over at Northlight.
According to them, Canon is expected to unveil the successors to the EOS 1D X and the EOS 5D MK III in 2015. No word on when exactly they will be revealed, but they claim that it could be in early 2015, January/February. However they also claim that there is a possibility that the EOS 1D X’s announcement could very well take place later in 2014, with a possible release in 2015, while the EOS 5D MK III will be announced after the EOS 1D X.
The specs from either camera remains unknown for now, however it has been speculated that both cameras will take advantage of the new sensor technology that could be making its debut in the upcoming EOS 7D MK II, although given that the 7D MK II is still a rumor for now, we guess you’ll just have to take this rumor with a grain of salt for now. Either way if you had your eye on a pro-level DSLR, maybe waiting until next year before rushing into anything might not be such a bad idea.
