Canon-EOS-5D-Mark-III-Product-FrontEarlier this month, we learned about Canon's next full-frame camera, which is believed to be an entry-level model set to compete with the budget-friendly full-frame Nikon D600, set to be announced soon. Canon's new full-frame for the masses will allegedly rock the following specs:

  • 22mp (Same sensor as 5D3)
  • 19 AF Points
  • 4fps
  • ISO 100-51200
  • 3-inch LCD
  • Smaller than the 5D Mark II
  • More Plastic than metal in the construction
  • Pop-Up Flash (On at least one prototype)
  • $1999 USD at launch
  • Launched with a new non-L full frame kit lens (Undisclosed what the lens is)
  • Compatible with full frame STM lenses

But now we've learned that the mystery model will also flaunt the following:

  • Either an 18MP sensor or 22MP sensor
  • Design closer to 7D than 5D3 (smaller and with flash)
  • 7D style AF system (19 pt) and VF LCD7D metering
  • Single Digic 5+
  • 3.9 fps burst rate
  • 51200 max ISO

So the Canon EOS Mystery Model looks to be a concoction of a 5D Mark III and 7D, priced at under $2,000 and compatible with Canon's smooth, silent AF lenses
