Canon Rumors : MPEG2 Based Codec for 5D Mark III & 24-70 II in April? [CR2]

MPEG2 Based Codec for 5D Mark III?At least we aren’t talking about RAW video!
Codec talk has been running rampant for a while in regards to the 5D Mark III, is most of it fact or wishlist?

According to EOSHD, Canon is working on an MPEG2 based codec for the 5D Mark III. It will have a 4-2-2 color space. Another feature will be a variable bitrate up to 50mbit. The codec will be an improved version from the XF305

The move is motivated by the desire to avoid paying Sony and Panasonic a licensing fee for AVCHD/H.246.

Adobe and Apple have already taken up the format, so applications for native editing will not be a problem.

24-70 II in April? [CR2]

The end in sight?
A good source says “I’d be surprised to see the next 24-70 not announced in April”. The source does caution things could go awry because of these apparent lens delays.

The source also says the lens will be “with IS”.

I look forward to the end of the speculation on this lens.
