Rumors: Canon 1Ds and 5D chatter continues

With both the 1Ds flagship and the 5D Mark II being "due" for an update, and this being the start of the "Fauxtokina" season, the Canon chatter is continuing!

First up, something measurable - the 1Ds Mark III has been "archived" on the Canon Canada website says Northlight Images and Canon Rumors. As you can see at the self-updating Age of DSLRs page, the 1Ds Mark III is getting close to 1500 days old (age is since the official announcement).

On the 5D front, The Pho Blo Grapher noted that the EXIF data of a food photography picture at 500px showed "5D Mark III". Meanwhile, an Australian rep said no 5DMk3 in 2011 writes Northlight Rumors.

Speaking of futurism, Photo Club Alpha opines on the possibility of a 24mp APS-C sensor from Sony and notes that when you adjust for sensor size, the 18mp Canon APS-C sensors are not that far off.

As usual, please note rumors are rumors until or unless they become facts!
