5D-7D merge. Sounds perfect for me.

So this would pretty much confirm the 3k+ price to me...
That's what I was going to say... No way $3500 is the price of a kit of new 5D3 plus new lens, as some people speculate/dream...
based on the OP's info: yepp. spot on. so, I will purchase the cam sometime next year then, hoping for a decent price drop. I am not an early adopter anyway. Hope the new 5D will get 1024k ISO at H2. Meanwhile  my 30D will gently click.

EOS Bodies / What will be announced on Feb 28?

3 votes per member. Please correct me on speed lites and lenses if I am absolutely wrong on that one. There is a fifth line left. So if anyone comes up with an additional option feel free. Well, this is just for doing a bit of time... 8)
Cheers, Pedro

2nd of March. That's 20 days to go for my birthday. These are great times!!! 8)
BTW I was just privileged to open page #40. So, shall we set up a poll at how much this will add up till the 2nd of March?  :P

@CR: Hope you only had to go back for a reason related to the new tech coming.The day you know the announcement will be huge you might post some gear you gonna offer at second hand rates as a hint, let's say: old 24-70, old 5DMkII even though it's not a lens ;D

@wrack_of_lamb: thanks a lot for that! 12800 would be quite something. Looking forward to it then! Three days and counting...

@Mt Spokane being a non-anglo and non-tech I only get a faint idea concerning your insightful explanation. Could you please tell me what this means for the rumored high ISOs of the new 5D?

Up to which setting will the 30dB work for excellent quality? 6400? or does that mean 100-25600? sorry. I know it's gonna be a hard job for you but thanks in advance. or as I am currently shooting a 30D you might use the H 3200 as a reference in comparison to a new 5D. 1600 and good light is fine. 3200 is quite usable with fast glass 50 1.4 and wide open, exposing to the right. A type of digital robert frank "the americans" style ;-) which I like very much as I am veteran from the filmdays

Cheers, Pedro

more importantly what will the USEABLE iso range be...

i am always curious as to how people define "useable" iso. having shot with b&w film as high as iso 1600 pushed to 3200, i suspect my tolerance might be higher than others in this digital age.

I can second that. I used to shoot a Contax 139 Quartz back in the day (1982) using the Kodak Tri-X pushed to 3200 ASA...those were the days...

Looking forward to the new 5D while I don't hesitate to shoot my 30D at ISO 3200 using street lanterns as long as I can exposure to the right with 50/1.4 wide open. Compared to this quality 12800 or even 25600 will look great on the new cam... 8)

the rumored specs are everything I hoped for in a 5D Mark II successor.  I could shoot this camera for a very, very long time, and not worry at all about what comes after.

same with me. I will upgrade back to FF. Had a Contax back in the film days. Shooting a 30D for about 5 years as an amateur there will be plenty of camera to explore and to work at my learning curve with for a decade I guess... 8)

22 megapixels?

I don't buy it.

Talk of a high-megapixel D800 killer aside, why would Canon ever make two different kinds of full frame sensors? They never did in the past.

Speaking of the past.....  nobody anticipate the release of 5D back in 2005. the company strategy can change, .radically influenced by the market.

PS 5DMK2 was the best seller upper lvl camera that canon ever had.

I am more than happy if all these specs pan out. And I wouldn't say that there is no high MP chance...As Canon officials were talking about recently...you'll never know what next spring or fall has in store for you!

With these rumored specs, given the possibility of 1024 k it is a dream cam for me. Not being a pro, it will be "new"  enough for ages...as my preferencies are low light without flash. My current 30D does quite well up to 1600 or 3200 exposed well to the right. So not this year but maybe next fall I'll return to FF having shot a Contax 139 Quartz back in the day (1982).

Is the ISO range convergent with former posts: 100-25600 and 1042k as highest extension?

EOS Bodies / From NL: NDAs expiring on the 2nd of March
« on: February 21, 2012, 07:40:41 AM »
Over at NL we read:

"20th We've hearing of NDAs expiring on the 2nd of March.
Now we also hear of a 5D3 (and only a 5D3) spec for a launch on the 2nd
22MP, 6fps, 61 focus points (41 cross) same as 1DX system
100-25600 Basic ISO 1024k dots LCD display 3:2 wide (or 3.2" ?)
Best Video quality in a DSLR.
After several different suggestions pointing to the start of March I'm wondering if we will indeed get an announcement on the 2nd. Fridays are not a traditional day for announcements, but perhaps we will see a 5D3 celebrating 25 years of EOS?"

@picsfor: as there is at least one or two more, then maybe one of these will. Personally hoping for a baby 1Dx type of cam TBA soon...

This is the most sensible rumour about a 5D2 replacement that will also replace the 7D.

Improved weather sealing, fine. 1D4 AF - also fine - just so long as it's better than what is currently in use on the 5D2.

Those features couple with 22mp would certainly lead to a spec sheet they could pull in at the £2200 price range or less. It really would be nice if they could add that dual card slot as well.

As for reduction in price? Why would they? £2200 on release will soon drop to under £2k on the streets once demand has been met. A baby 1DX for under half the price of the 1DX will please a lot of 7D users and 5D2 users wanting to upgrade.

I can almost here the kerching of the cash registers as this camera flies out the door  8)

What if you were spot on?  8) by then the high MP body would be how much?
