Grip not dissimilar to BGE-6 so probably 5DII.

We Canon users are becoming too used to making excuses for our brand, we have come to expect so little of Canon that we rejoice at any small mercy. So let's have no more of this "as long as the 5D Mk3 has 9 cross type AF points I'll be happy", you deserve more from a camera that's going to cost well over $3000.What is the reason to increase the price of a 5D Mk3 once it will be announced? $3000 o.k. Beyond that ... I'll go for a 5Dii or wait until it is about two years into its product cycle
The 5D Mk2 currently sells for $2500; I can't see Canon launching the 5D Mk3 at this price point, it would force them to drop the price of the 5D Mk2. Far better for them to launch at $3000+ and sell of their remaining 5D Mk2s at $2500 -squeeze you for every $!! .
dont they usually just set the 'new model' at the current price.. ? I've got a mk.2N, at 4 month's old, mk.III hit the marked, same price.... then the mk.IV hit the shelfs at couple of years later... same price.
IF they do DSLR-releated announcements in the upcoming weeks...We'll see. I'm pretty sure we'll get at least one new FF DSLR this year (1Ds4, or whatever it'll be called).
In my case the problem is, that my 350D IS going to stop takting pictures very soon I guess... And I'm waiting for the 7D2 or the 5D3 since I definitley want to have flip screen.
Flip screen is a consumer feature and I'd be shocked if they put it in 7D and 5D. I really hope they don't, because I'd then have to move up to 1D line just to get rid of it.
It really is disspiriting to see just how much more we have to pay for the same items in rip off Britain. The 400mm f/2.8 at $11500 in the US costs $14600 in the UK, even our stupidly high taxes don't account for that level of disparity, and when that is multiplied across the whole range of camera gear then the rip off is enormous.
I think if I needed to buy one of these lenses it would be cost effective to hop on a plane buy one & bring it back with me!
Actually, Jessops are claiming Â£200 off the 5DII and Â£350 off the 5DII + 24-105mm kit - not sure how this compares to previous prices though
ok so lets all say its true any idea on pricing what do you guys think will be acceptable ? I'm hoping no more than Â£2000 uk sterlingList price of 5dII Â£2299 body only though now selling around Â£1600
