According to eagle–eyed bloggers at NeutralDay who spotted it on Canon.cn, the new high–end snapper will come with serious grunt inside. You can expect a 15.1MP sensor, a 95 per cent view viewfinder, 6.3fps shooting and ISO up to 3,200, with an expansion pack taking that to a mind–boggling 12,800 if you fancy.
It's also set to come toting an HDMI input, suggesting there'll be some hi–def goodies just waiting to bust out onto your LCD.
Being a leak, there's no news on final dates and prices, but with camera bods gathering in Berlin for the Photokina powwow next month, and Nikon priming their D90 for release, you can expect it soon.
