CR Guy, still no leak info about press invites or events? Isn't it too quiet if the long awaited 5DIII/X is really going to be announced next Monday/Tuesday??

BUT also the photoshopped image to have eye-control (bottom right corner)... Fun, but bring on that truckload of salt for now.
How does the (expected) 1D X AF compare to that of, say, a 7D - the vastly increased amount of focus points aside?
The 7D has one f/2.8-sensitive point (the center one), the rest are f/5.6-sensitive. The 1D X has five f/2.8 points and 20 f/4 points. The wider the baseline, the more accurate the AF. I'm sure the AI Servo algorithms are better on the 1D X as well.Anyway we will see.
We'll see, indeed. In the mean time, it's fun to speculate!
My guess, assuming the 61-pt spec is true: one f/2.8-sensitive dual cross point (the center one), 30 f/5.6-sensitive cross points (the three vertical columns in the center and the inner columns that are f/4 on the 1D X), Zone AF but no Spot AF and no AF Area Expansion, no help from the metering sensor (which will likely be the 63-zone iFCL and not the 100K pixel RGB sensor).
So if this proves true, would you upgrade to this or would this keep you on track to get the 1DX?
Also, did I read correctly somewhere that you'll be able to meter off of any one of the 1D X's AF points should you choose to do so?
This is a valid point, while I know what Nikon has done, I just have trouble seeing Canon putting their Cadillac 1D X AF system in the 5DIII. From the advertising hype the AF system is a huge part of the appeal of the 1D X. Would that not leave pros thinking....so I'm paying $3500 extra to get 6 more FPS, a weather sealed body, and some very high ISO options that I'll never use, oh and 4 less MP.
I just hope that it's the real 1DX AF with just a minor tweak down that most won't care about too much.
dilbert, could you post the link to this "D800 only on tripod" info, this is smth I have been expecting with the high MP bodies. Are there reviewers already?
We’re still unsure if it’ll be a 5D Mark III or a 5D X
YOU are not THE MARKET and often this is price point driven, they make what people will pay for
Clearly Canon is meeting market demand, they are the largest share of the market
What's the far left lower button for? The one next to the rear small display. Can't remember pushing a button like that before. Resolution?
here it's a full size sample:
EOS 5D Mark Ⅱ, 70 mm, 1/12 sec, F/5.7, ISO 100
I don't know u guys but i think it's pretty soft for stopped down aperture!
here it's a sample of the brand new 24/2.8 IS, and it's way sharper!
EOS 5D Mark Ⅱ, 24 mm, 1.61 sec (yep, this IS works well), F/11, ISO 100
Not sure if anyone here have seen it or it's been posted:
It's an unnamed DSLR that is capable of doing 4K video, in CP+ 2012 exhibition in Japan.
I am curious as what it looks like extended. I hate the new hood, looks like the 24-105 and it leaks light like crazy.
Also the current hood doesn't let you see the extended lens, which looks horrible...
Already preordered mine from adorama!
Here's the photo
Damn that looks like a much more reasonable size than the Mk1, could be the fact that the lens hood isn't on it though. Thanks for sharing the pics and thoughts!
