Photo and specifications of the new Canon 5D Mark IV camera

According to the used “rrccad” there a new image appeared on DPreview showing the new EOS 5D Mark IV camera from canon in action. It certainly looks interesting as the pentaprism looks unusual and unique which indeed might be the long awaited 5D edition:

Canon 5D Mark IV Starting price
There are some price speculations before the live announcement this month. As you might remember the Mark III’s price at launch was around the $3500 mark, but rumour has it that the new EOS 5D Mark IV will start at a lower point – $3299. There is no guarantee just yet what the starting price of the new camera will be, especially with the Brexit effect on the world market and the value of the Japanese Yen. The new 5D is expected to arrive on the market with two separate kit options. The first will be bundled with the 24-70/f4 IS lens, but the more interesting news is about a new kit on the block – an updated and brand new version of the workhorse 24-105 Canon lens – the 24-105/4 L IS II lens. The latter is expected to be the better kit which should reflect on the price, of course.
