Canon EOS 40D Mk II?

OK. Now, I’m lost. This can’t be! A rumour surfaced this week on DPR about a possible upcoming Canon EOS 40D Mk II.

  • new 12 MP gapless microlens CMOS sensor which employs the 5D markII improved output amplifier, and a more advanced color filter with superior light transmission
  • Digic IV
  • 100-3200 base ISO, expanded L1- 50, H1- 6400
  • Liveview with new more advanced algorithm contrast based AF with tracking capabilities
  • Movie mode, with the ability to use the upper mentioned contrast AF
  • 5D markII LCD
  • 5D markII battery system
  • AF microajustment
  • Fulltime weathersealing
  • Everything else, same specs from the 40D

To me, it looks like somebody angry at the spec of the Canon EOS 50D and wishing more.
