Default Eos 5d

Anybody know if Canon is planning to update the EOS 5D anytime soon?
I'm thinking aboute getting one.

When I broke down and bought my 10D, the 20D came out a few months later. When I updated to the 40D, the 50D came out. I'd hate to get a 5D MK II and have the MKIII come out 4 months later.

the 5dmkii is a wonderful camera, i would not worry about their upgrade plans. with the recent introduction of the 7d and the 1dmkiv, i would not be expecting it anytime too soon.

Agree with Hards80. I think you're a year away from seeing an upgrade to the 5dmkII. The next camera upgrade will be the 1dsmkIV followed by an upgrade to 50d and entry level. 5d is a ways away.

Yeah, I reckon at least 18-24 months till the 5DMkIII comes along.

The 1DmkIV and 1DsmkIV and a 60D, and a 600D are all due before the next 5D.

Or canon will surprise everyone with 5D Mark III where major complaints from various users seems to be the age old AF. with 7D being tested and currently looks stable i wouldnt be surprised to see a Mark III before usual cycle.

But wait, 1ds Mark IV is still due....

I still feel original 5D is a superb buy at the current rate. One of the BEST cameras i have ever used
