Status – September 2015

Well, this camera is due for an update! Below you see our coverage from 2013 when it was announced.

Canon is typically on a 3 year cycle for their ‘pro' products… so that would typically mean that we're due for a new Canon 5D sometime early next year hopefully.

At this point, there are a LOT of people excited by other cameras like the Sony A7s and the Sony A7r II as well as the Panasonic GH4. Those are all “mirrorless” cameras with smaller form factors and prices. And they produce 4k video as well.

So… where's the next 5D?
