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 8)


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 $!! ;).

Current list price of 5dII is £2300/$3700 with cheapest shop price £1600/$2550 approx. (30% discount)
7d list £1800/$2900
When new models are released you pay list price until most stocks of outgoing model are depleted.


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).

Don't hold your breath.
The only certainties are death and taxes

EOS Bodies / Re: The next body... (my speculations)

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.

If you dont want video are you going to revert to 1D(s)III?
Only possible use for tilt screen is shooting over a crowd when you forgot to bring a stepladder.
You pay for the features you need on a body unfortunately Canon dont do pick and mix.

How about 5dIII with AF,card slots and built in grip from 1D IV plus  upgrades in. sensor and dual chips.

An underwater housing with built in microwave to keep your coffee warm and spill proof.
Also 1 in 1000 mugs should be replaced with the real thing.

How about bodies debadged with transfers so you can honestly claim your 1DsIV is only an 1100
So no complaints about how much you spent ;) ;)

Its just as well the grading doesnt extend from 18-55mm efs to 1200mm L

Lenses / Re: EF300 2.8 and 400 2.8 Mark IIs shipping?

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!

I agree UK prices are too high.
Just remember to add 6-8% Customs duty and 20% vat plus your trip costs before crossing the pond.

293
Are you
Actually, Jessops are claiming £200 off the 5DII and £350 off the 5DII + 24-105mm kit - not sure how this compares to previous prices though

On line or in store Jessops prices vary to a large degree.

EOS Bodies / Re: Really? 5d Mk.II for $1499?

The one omission in the ad was the word box

Camera is an optional extra

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 £2000 uk sterling
List price of 5dII £2299 body only though now selling around £1600 

Suspect launch price to be in region of £2500 - 3000 hopefully falling to £2000 - 2200 when initial demand has been met probably six months after stock hits the shops.

I look forward to the appearance of the 5DIII.
Hopefully it will appear quicker than 8-15mm f4L. announced last August and now trickling into stores.
With the London Olympics less than a year away the chances of obtaining either it or a 1D successor seem slim
unless you pre-order and pay a premium price. (Of course loan stock may suddenly be available for Olympics)
Hopefully Canon will prove us wrong!!!!
