Canon EOS 5D Mark IV specs we'd like to see

The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV will be announced on August 25, 2016, for residents of North America, according to a popular rumor site.

The Canon Rumors website says it has been told that Canon will announce the long-awaited update to its popular 5D line of cameras just under a month before September’s Photokina trade show in Cologne, Germany.

Canon Rumors adds that the 5D Mark IV will be launched with a new EF 24-105mm f/4L IS II kit, along with another current lens kit.

What’s more, another Canon-centric site, Northlight Images, has posted blurry images of what it claims is a pre-production model of the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV.

Though, we must agree with other photographers who commented on the story that it really is impossible to tell anything from these images.
