With Canon’s introduction of the 5D mark III 2 months ago some filmmakers are eager to see a more affordable version of the new generation of Canon’s HDSLRs.
For others the APS-C sized sensor which comes very close to the 35mm film format is an argument against the 5D mark III.
Unfortunately there are no dates mentioned for the release of these cameras yet but rumored specs lists are a good start. Published by canonrumors:
