In between our stints of "doctoring" this photo and filtering the latest rumors of the much awaited Canon 5D Mark III, there have been reports of its launch postponed till end of this year. The reason behind the delay might not be issues from the development aspect but from the production side since Canon experienced several delays on their manufacturing facilities.  On the bright side, the new camera will most likely include the more advance Auto-Focus unit that is currently available on the Canon EOS 7D DSLR Camera.
