Are other countries shipping the lens earlier?

Pressure from Nikon & Sony on the full frame front plays a part on the length of Canon's product cycle.

Nikon
D750 - 3 months ago
D810 - 6 months ago
D4S - 10 months ago
DF - over a year ago
D610 - over a year ago

Sony
α7 - 16 October 2013
α7R - 16 October 2013
α7S - 6 April 2014
α7 Mark II - 20 November 2014

To be honest arguing when a future product will release is ultimately pointless. I dont make money on predictions. ;)

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.   8)
The approx 3 year product cycle was assumed for the 7D based on those used by other single digit bodies.

I personally found it reasonable assumption at the time. Who would have thought that it would take more than 5 years from one announcement to another.

It is possible the 6D successor could either do a 3 year or 5 year product cycle. It has long passed the 12 month cycle of Digital Rebels.

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. :)

Double gripped pro bodies from Nikon & Canon are timed to be released months before any Olympic or FIFA World Cup event.

Same goes with the lenses, flashes and other accessories that are widely there.

Like say the 200/2 IS II or 800/5.6 IS II that CR guy keeps pushing up as a CR2 or CR3. Realistically I see them being updated before Tokyo 2020 if Canon follows the product cycle of other superteles.

Just to revisit the product cycle of the 5D line.

Mark I - 22 August 2005 (160 weeks)
Mark II - 17 September 2008 (180 weeks)
Mark III - 2 March 2012 (144 weeks as of today).

Assumption, if the 5D Mark III replacement follows the length of time of any of the previous models

Mark I - March 2015
Mark II - May 2015

Conservatively it'll be announced by March but realistically it should come out before 2016.

And *if* that rumored timeline happens, how quickly will the latest and greatest cameras be on shelves available for purchase?

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.
Some Canon EF products from the top of my head.

Announced
18 October 2011 - 1D X
17 September 2008 - 5D Mark II
15 September 2014 - 7D Mark II
20 October 2009 - 1D Mark IV
11 November 2014 - EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II

Shipped
June 2012 - 1D X
December 2008 - 5D Mark II
October 2014 - 7D Mark II
December 2009 1D Mark IV
December 2014 - EF 100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS II

Baring earthquakes, tsunamis, legal reasons, technical reasons and break down of supply chains in other parts of the world Canon does deliver products within 1-3 months from announcement.

I am 100% certain that the 1D X replacement or supplement will show up before August 2016. I am 110% certain that the 5D Mark III replacement will be released months before that time also.

Now as to buy now or later is really based on your wants/needs. I want a full frame and I am willing to wait it out for the 5D Mark IV. Perhaps the thread starter is not aware about the product upgrade cycle of the 5D or 1D line hence my mentioning it

I have gone through buying a EOS body less than 12 months before a new one shipped and it is annoying to suffer such bad depreciation.

2015 is the year that the 5D and 1D are expected to be updated.

I expect...

Expected by who?  Lots of people expected the 100-400L to be updated in 2013...and 2010...and 2006.
By CR Guy!  ;D

I expect the 5D to be updated by March or later and the 1D later in the year.

March is less than 90 days away.

So the transition you refer to is not happening... not at Canon, at least.   :D

If you are experiencing soft images with your new EOS 7D Mark II then download the EOS 7D Mark II AF-Setting Guidebook

http://www.brochures.canon-europe.com/getFile.php?productid=9090&languageid=-1

Reading, understanding and practice will most likely resolve the soft image problem 99% of the time.

EOS Bodies / Re: Focus problems with the Canon 7DII?
« on: December 03, 2014, 06:25:55 PM »
I think the focus problems has its roots in unfamiliarity with the body or too much excitement over new gear. In other words user error.

To correct this try downloading and reading the EOS 7D Mark II AF-Setting Guidebook

http://www.brochures.canon-europe.com/getFile.php?productid=9090&languageid=-1

If the body still gives focus problems after thoroughly reading, understanding and practicing what is found in the PDF then try doing microadjustments.

Still a problem? Then send it over to Canon.

Again, I see it as most likely a user error. I myself got a lot of soft images but I put it down to a new lens + new body + not shooting in months than anything else.

Craig, you have my blessing to rename the subject title. I find the honor of my thread as a CR post a bit amusing.  8)

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.
As the seller price it appropriately and make a disclosure.

As the buyer ask questions and thoroughly test before agreeing on the purchase.

Anyone buying used should never expect brand new condition.
