We’ve recently made two separate pages for the rumored Canon 5D replacement as it’s speculated that there will be two different cameras, the 5D Mark III and 5DX.

According to the latest rumor, the next 5D camera is expected to be announced on February 27 or 28, 2012, depending on where you are located.

Below are the specs of both cameras:

Canon 5D Mark III rumored specs:

  • 22 MP
  • 61 point autofocus
  • 2 stops better ISO than 5D mark II
  • Digic 5 Processor
  • 6.9 fps (down from 7.5)
  • Eye Control Autofocus
  • GPS enabled

Canon 5D Mark III

Canon 5DX rumored specs:

  • 45 MP
  • Digic 5
  • 61 focus point

The camera name might not be 5D Mark III or 5DX as the full name of the new Canon camera is not yet known. We’ll soon find out next week.

The price of the new Canon 5D camera is expected to be more or less $3000 USD.

What do you think, will the new Canon camera compete with the recent Nikon D800?
