    I say fake because if it was real it wouldn't be so nicely shot, unless it was an actual "leak" from canon, and even then I doubt it because those pictures don't show you shit about the camera

    What??? Wow, that's some bad logic.

    Read the article snippet, apparently these DID come from Canon and are some brochure beauty shots. How about larger versions with intact Phase One H-20 exif:

    I dont' shoot canons, but aren't those buttons on the bottom supposed to be on the left side? I can't see Canon changing those around, b/c the ones used to Canon's interface already, will be searching around when they need it most...so I call fake.

    who needs a bigger screen? I hope they fixed their underexposure problem or that huge LCD is a useless feature.

    (i.e. when looking at the image for exposure on 30D, the image looks great, but is actually way underexposed when you transfer into camera raw. note, this doesn't take into consideration that you should be looking at the histogram for exposure monitoring)

    Seen the back of a 1DMIII lately? Look at button placement:

    Seems to be a plausible change to me.

    Shows what I know. I thought those were Qual/WB/ISO settings. :o Plus I thought Canons weren't suspectible to product leaks...unlike Nikon.

    I agree. Those do not look like any shots I have seen from Canon before. Not to mention the camera looks just like the fake version of the 5D MKII. I'm not some conspiracy nut just out to down everything. Plus (to me anyway) some of the lines on the body seem to be askew just a hair.

    Well, if this is to be believed (and it's the most plausible leak to date) there are a few interesting things to notice:

    - 3" LCD
    - Live View (button below LCD)
    - AF/AE or AF-ON button under the thumb (can't tell which)
    - ISO indicated on LCD and in viewfinder
    - sRAW support
    - User memory positions on command dial
    - 2s/10s self timer
    - Low/High speed continuous shooting

    What didn't change:
    - Same basic body, will probably use the same grip and batteries (yuck)
    - Probably no seals either
    - Same old shitty 9-point AF
    - Still no hard MLU button or assignable hard button

    As for the guts of the thing...Who knows.

    30D has this, nothing new.

    They really need to add MLU as a shooting mode.
    And I'd be sad if the focusing system is exactly the same, but I suppose they still need to give people a reason to buy 1D bodies.

    If it doesn't look like their brochure shots to you, then you clearly haven't seen one of the EOS brochures.

    Also, I see no reason to think that those pictures aren't real. 3" LCD and removal of buttons on the left should come as no surprise.

    It would be nice if they'd put the 6 AF assist points in from the 5D, that would help. If whatever eventual successor to the 5D still has the 9+6 point AF, then I'll truly be pissed.

    The body really isn't breaking any new ground, which is a damn shame. Still, it looks like a decent camera, and if they put a good, solid, sensor in it then it will be a fine upgrade for many Rebel/20D/30D users. Looks like I'm holding out for a 5D replacement or a 1DMIII with AF issues fixed. :wtc:

    the shooting mode wheel FTL
    plastic body FTL

    the 3" screen from the 1dmkIII is not that great, 2.5" with high resolution would be better

    but it should have a direct print button, so all is well
