Canon EOS-5D Mk II Leak 2

A further leak of the often rumored Canon EOS-5D Mark II has appeared today that suggests the camera will be Canon's most low-light capable model to date. The sequel is now thought to have a new 16-megapixel, full-frame sensor that supports up to ISO 25,600, matching the same performance as the Nikon D3 in very dark environments. The figure may be just for marketing's sake, the alleged source warns. Shots from the D3 at such a high range often exhibit very visible noise.

The camera would lack the live previews on its LCD that are present on the Rebel series but would make up for it through an extra-sharp display: the screen would have a VGA (640x480) resolution that would help in reviewing shots. Other additions would include continuous shooting at six frames per second as well as an enclosure fully sealed against rain and other splashes.

However, the camera would also still go without the full autofocus capabilities of the EOS-1D Mark III in addition to other extras such as fast UDMA CompactFlash card support, HDMI video output, and more features that have appeared in competitors or in some of Canon's own cameras.

The rumor has yet to be corroborated and contradicts earlier reports, but is unusually detailed and estimates that the new 5D variant would launch on September 8th for $2,400 in a body-only kit, falling in line with the advent of the Photokina expo in Germany the same month.
