“DCW told me that it had received an email from Canon on 28 August 2008, advising that the 5D “has been officially discontinued”. I followed this news up with Canon Australia (Sales) that advised me “the Canon Australia warehouse stock is zero and there are no new orders being placed”.
When we asked a Canon representative about this, their response was:
“No, Canon Australia has not discontinued the Canon 5D, however Canon is unsure when the next shipment will arrive.”
So, can we expect a new 5D Mk II to land in our laps in the next month or so? I really hope so, especially if those leaked specs were accurate – I’m setup as a Canon man, but the Nikon D90 was starting to tempt me in unnatural ways with its HD video recording and abundance of features…
