Canon EOS-5D Mk. II leak

A second version of Canon's EOS-5D may be in production, a listing error suggests. Amongst the possible cameras a photographer might have, the bug submission form for Capture One beta 4 (by Phase One) lists a "Canon 5D Mark II;" selections are otherwise fairly conventional, limited to a host of known cameras and digital backs. The mistake is given weight both by Phase One's leading-edge reputation and by the EOS-40D, which was similarly exposed, and then officially confirmed on August 20th.

The current 5D is considered in the top tiers of Canon's DSLRs, its highlight being a full-frame, 12.8-megapixel sensor. While Canon's 1Ds Mk. II also has a full frame, the 5D is the cheapest camera Canon offers with the feature, which provides more detail while restoring focal lengths cropped by most digital sensors.

    It's the Canon 1Ds, not 1D, that has a full frame sensor.
