Spotted in the wild: A new Canon body and two prototype lenses.
When Stephen Oachs was shooting in Kenya, he came across a Japanese man with limited English who claimed to work for Canon. The man was testing out a 600mm lens and a 200-400mm lens with built-in teleconverter.
Canon Rumors inspected the pictures he took of the camera and noticed the body has a joystick on the battery grip, new button layouts, new scroll wheel and perhaps most enlightening of all the fact that there’s no pop-up flash, which seems to suggest it could be the 5D Mark III.
But as with any rumor, take this with a grain of salt. Yet the possibility of a 5D Mark III is exciting news.
