Does it mean we can expect a little drop on the european market ? In France it's been a long time that the price of 5D mark III is at 2999 €

Thanks for your advices guys  ;)

so in a close future my photo gear for nature and wildlife picture should be this one :

5D Mark III and 40D
17-40mm F/4 L
100mm macro F/2.8 L IS
70-200mm F/4 L IS
and a tele lens most likely the 400 5.6 L (a new version with IS and Weather sealing is welcome). i just order a 300mm  F/4 L IS 8)

EOS Bodies / Re: First Round of EOS 7D Mark II Specs [CR1]

I'm pretty sure this is all about speculation and if the 7D mark II exists en 2013 (which is definitely not 100% sure) it'll be with very different specs in my opinion.

 And it's starts with this 24 MP with an APSC sensor, i really hope it won't be exact, something between 16 to 20 would be great !

What i want is the kind of AF of the 5D mark III, better noise reduction and great high iso performances...

Actually in France, we can order the 6D ( - avaibility announced 4 to 12 days) with 3 different lenses :

40mm f/2.8 STM pancake 2279.90 €
24-70 f/4 L IS macro 3349.90 €
24-105 f/4 L IS 2899.90 €

Lenses / 17-40mm F/4 L or 16/35mm F/2.8 L I

I'm thinking about buying a used WA lens. In your opinion, for almost the same price would you take the 17-40 F/4 L or the 16-35 F/2.8 L I. The 5D mark III would be the body to go with...

Thanks guys for your comments and advices  ;) Now, i know the 5D mark III is my choice, i have to think about the best option in terms of lens to couple with...

Thanks for sharing your experiences, i'm more and more convinced about the 5D mark III as my next dslr body  ;D

What makes me thinking about a FF is the fact that in forests like the ones of Costa rica, you're not necesseraly need a crop factor but you absolutely need light and speed. So actually, until a very good 7D mark II (with a great AF, high iso and weather sealed) is arriving, i think the 5D mark III is my best option...

I know the 300 2.8 L IS would be the best option but it's not the same price (even a used one) and the same weight...

humm pretty hard to choose ;) I would rather have the 300 because costaricians forests are pretty tough in terms of low light ans the IS and the f/4 aperture would help me instead of the 5.6 without IS.

The combo 1D mark IV and 300 f4 yes, but the 1.3 crop factor surely helps...

Thanks for the sample ! It works very well ;)

Initially i was thinking about the great, sharp and light 300 f4 L IS but i think it'll be too short coupled with a FF for wildlife photography :(
