new canon gear???

I don't normally believe all the rumor sites regarding new camera gear, however this forum thread: http://www.sportsshooter.com/message_display.html?tid=30339 seems to indicate reasonably believable intel that new bodies are on the way soon. Had this been yet another dpreview thread, I'd dismiss it immediately, however sportsshoter.com members have a bit more credibility and there's a couple higher profile members in there offering some thoughts - which I doubt they'd do casually if this didn't seem realistic.

16.7 mp 5D successor? Not bad - Lets hope the price point is attractive.
12.2 mp 50D? - They'll sell a ton of those.

Lets see if it pans out... I'm still hoping for 18 mp on the 5D successor...

I've been working a few hours a week at our local mom-n-pop camera store and as I was leaving yesterday noticed that the 5D we had was sold (I'm the only Canon guy in a store full of Nikon promoters). He told me that no sooner had it sold than the Canon rep phoned to say there are no more orders or re-orders on 5D, but that he couldn't reveal if anything was in the pipeline.

Successor sounds close.

Interesting!

What do you think about the popup flash on the 5D? This seems to indicate a body re-design don't you think? Makes me kind of nervous, since I think that would mean a smaller more 40d-like body... that alone might be enough to push me up to the DS. I just can't use a tool if it doesn't feel "right" and there's been a trend in downsizing since the 10D.
