Perhaps its an elaborate rouse to add more confusion in the mix. Instead of the usual cadre of professional photographers to "preview" its latest products, Canon made an unexpected move over the weekend and had one of its employee test out what looks to be the much anticipated Canon EOS 5D Mark III Digital SLR, in the open quite literally. During his safari trip in Kenya, photographer Stephen Oachs met a follow traveler from Japan with an odd setup - a unmarked Canon EOS camera, a new 200-400mm lens, and an unfamiliar 600mm lens. While Oachs was able to confirm the man to be a Canon's employee out testing field-of-depth functions, he wasn't able to get more information on the gears. Already, the speculations have run rampant online, everything from a new name (Canon EOS 5D X), a completely new model (Canon EOS 7D Mark II), to accusation of the images being fakes.
