Canon 5D Mark III images leak, Launch on March 2nd!

I'm really excited about the launch of Canon's next huge DSLR, the 5D Mark III, set to launch this Friday, March 2.  Some images were leaked and posted on CanonRumors.com, and they definitely don't look fake.  Here's a few shots:


Official specs have not yet been revealed, but this ultra powerful camera is rumored to offer a 22-megapixel sensor, 61-point auto-focus system, 6.9fps capture rate. It will also feature 100% viewfinder coverage, 3.2-inch LCD screen, and dual card slots: CF and SD.

The sensor resolution spec is lower than the 36-megapixel Nikon D800, but Canon has explained before that this successor to the 5D Mark II isn’t attempting to compete on megapixels and is designed based on the needs of professional photographers. The body itself will cost around $3,500 and the camera will likely ship in late March or early April. Official details to come on March 2.
