Are other countries shipping the lens earlier?

In that case, perhaps we should discuss the validity of the 7DII rumors from 2012, three years (approx) after the 7D was released...and the two more years that elapsed prior to the actual announcement of the 7DII.The approx 3 year product cycle was assumed for the 7D based on those used by other single digit bodies.
I see that your estimates have already slipped by a year.Not necessarily, I stipulated August 2016 because of Rio 2016. I gave both conservative and realistic timeframe.
And *if* that rumored timeline happens, how quickly will the latest and greatest cameras be on shelves available for purchase?Some Canon EF products from the top of my head.
It was a year between 1DX announcement and widespread availability.
If Canon pulls out the stops on the 5D3 replacement, will it be readily available?
If Canon releases a 1DsIV, how long will the general public have to wait to get one? Will that drive up 1DX prices?
Given current discount deals on the 1DX, I wouldn't wait to get one if "waiting for the replacement" was the best reason to not get one now.
By CR Guy!2015 is the year that the 5D and 1D are expected to be updated.
Expected by who? Lots of people expected the 100-400L to be updated in 2013...and 2010...and 2006.
So the transition you refer to is not happening... not at Canon, at least.Execution does need work but it is happening.
As the seller price it appropriately and make a disclosure.Have it clean then sell it. It will never be optically the same ever again.
Absolutely wonderful for the poor sucker who gets caught buying it. The fungus will come back.
