1Ds Mark IV & 5D3 Thoughts & Lens Patent

Clues about Canon’s Plan?
As we know, a lot is being said about the demise of the 1Ds Mark III. It’s disappearing from stock at stores, from Canon’s own web store and anywhere else you can think of.

So what gives?

I’m told Canon may be quietly letting the 1Ds Mark III sail away into the sunset without a replacement right away. The 5D Mark II cannibalized a lot of the 1Ds3′s sales since it hit the market and became one of the best selling dslrs ever. The people that wanted a 1Ds3 for it’s full frame and build quality have probably already ponied up and bought the thing.

Canon will put larger differences in resolution between the 5D Mark III and 1Ds Mark IV.

I’m told the 5D Mark III will be first and be a slight upgrade in megapixels. 28 seems to be the number I keep hearing.

The big megapixel cameras from Canon or Nikon won’t be until the end of 2011 and into early 2012. Expect a big jump in megapixels above whatever the 5D Mark III turns out to be. 42mp from Nikon, around the same for Canon. None of this is written in stone yet I’m told, Q2 2012 is also a possibility.
