It’s still early days for rumors about a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV, and it’s not really feasible to separate future specs from wish lists at this point. Still, the idea of a late 2015 announcement and 2016 availability for the next generation of the camera that started the video DSLR revolution sounds about right — if it's going to happen at all.
Will it or won’t it (have 4K, that is)?
Will it or won’t it (be split off into a 5C variant)?
Will it or won’t it…
I know we need to share these kinds of things with you, but this is really, really early, trial balloon kind of stuff.
Just like the post we did almost two weeks ago.
Missing from this list is awesome dynamic range, something about which planet5D readers have been extraordinarily clear and virtually unanimous (98% of respondents in our survey) in their preference for dynamic range over more megapixels.

EOS 5D Mark IV Mentioned
Via Canon Rumors:
A separate report from Northlight says the EOS 5D Mark IV would have a 28mp sensor, 9fps and shoot 4K video. The camera would also see a “significant” advancement along with the EOS-1D X replacement in external flash control capabilities. This would include adaptors/controllers and firmware updates for the latest Canon DSLRs.
