I think I'll go out and invest in a tank of gas and a bag of potato chips.... Wonder what they will be worth in 2023?
They will be worth a 2009 Digital SLR  ;D

As many the months maybe...
Or... years!  :( This is a rumors site and everyone can write his or her BS! We simply do not know. For now I prefer to enjoy my TS-E 17mm. Less wide but still wide enough, plus having Tilt and Shift capability  ;) (and anyway the 14-24 is likely to have an equally high price).

Some photographers get the EF 14-24 f/2.8 for testing a few weeks ago.

Does "some" include yourself? So, how is it? 8)

No chance. I once asked M.ST about his experience with the 7D MKII. No reply. Which is understandable since he probably - for sure - signed a NDA
This or, there are no such things as 7DMkII and FS14-24 f/2.8L yet!  8)

Kind of sad :(  The 5D2 was and still is a great body!
Just AFMA it and it really is a great body. I will keep mine to keep company to my ... 5DMkIII   :)

The 35 L II, I am so seriously excited about that lens, seems the wait has been forever!
For how many years there are rumors that 35mm 1.4L is being replaced? Let's don't rush to celebrate an imaginary version II.

anyone has a rough idea of the price for the 35L II? im seeing a price tag of roughly $2,000.00 correct me if im wrong.

Probably $1500 or so... If they go with $2000 that would cut the possible buyers down significantly....this is a general wide angle lens... Lots of people could want it...but only if priced properly...go a bit too high it becomes a specialty type pricing (like TS E, or ultra wide prime at 2k as in 14mm). No they will have to come somewhere in the 1500 to 1600 range...it will quickly slide down to the current L prime average of ~1400 after release and initial rush is gone. Not sustainable for a 35mm otherwise.
$1479 is the B&H price when there are no rebates. Why Canon would spend a lot on R&D to make a 35mm 1/4L II that will cost almost as version 1 costs. There is no logic on that.  :o Add to the fact that we know what Canon does to the prices of the next version lenses...  :(

Most interesting thing to me is that the EOS 1V is still alive.

$1699 new at B&H, film not included.
SHAME ON THEM! They should include a free film  ;D

Just the one??  Be a bit like selling you a 5D III with a 256MB CF card.....
They sell it with no card at all!

1998 - Canon G3 (which got a LOT of use)
G3 in 1998 ?  It was introduced by the end of 2002!

btw, I'm getting an 8-15mm fisheye for Christmas!  I can't wait to play with it.
Oh NOOO. I didn't want to get more lenses this period. I was thinking of it 6 months ago but had gotten over it.
OK, a TS-E 17mm L I had gotten that period was quite a consolation  ::)

but if it hurts your fanboy feelings when people dare to say that canon gear is overpriced... i beg your pardon but that´s what many people think.
It is overpriced but it is our choice whether to buy or not and what item to buy and when. So what's the point of whining?
