We only hope that the revised EOS 5D will not use the confusing “Mark II” moniker. I have no inside information on when a revised model will appear (and if I did I could not reveal it). But a number of readers have asked, so here goes—
My guess is that Canon will introduce a new model at PMA in February. I also think there is a good chance that it will remain at 12.8 megapixels (or so), but might go as high as 17 megapixels. Actually I think it would be better if it remains at 12.8 megapixels, but with 14-bit processing, improved noise properties and color rendition, and less of the consumer-grade build quality. That’s much more important than, say, going to 16 megapixels.
