I am in desperate need to upgrade my camera body! I feel that right now is not the best time to buy because I know Canon is going to announce this "New 5D" very soon....probably the day after I buy the current 5D.

Anyone have any info on whats on the horizon? I also want to get a body or 2 for the rental site as well.

A 5D replacement would be great ... but it's gonna cost you! Meanwhile, You can get a Canon 40D for less than $1000 right now. That price is so low I almost want to buy one just as a backup.
The Canon 5D, for just $1900, is at such a great price point that even it is hard to resist.

I read that the new 5D will be released mid July.

My guess...

It'll be released to correspond with Photokina in September. They may announce the pending release sooner.

I'm interested in getting a full-frame body, but with the current rumors about a "5D Mark II" I prefer to wait a bit... The "old" 5D will probably get significantly cheaper and maybe the new one is even affordable...
