QuotePeople are speculating that $3500 is with kit lens. Users from other forums seem to have evidence.
I'm not sure I've seen any posts about a kit lens, and not sure what lens they would throw in that has enough value to raise to a $3500 price tag. You're not going to put a junk lens in with what has the potential to be a new standard body for many photographers.. That's like the old "putting $29 speakers on a $2000 receiver" analogy. There may be some combo deals out there, or if the price tag with a kit kens is $3500 and its a decent lens, maybe the body is back down in the more reasonable range.
The rumor I saw was $3800 Canadian with kit lens. I don't have the link. Some of the forums have no msg body search and I don't want to spend an hour tracking it down. I spent 5 minutes and couldn't find it again quickly.
Canada, yes! Yay. Haha.
I'm exciting, I know that I want a new camera to accompany my 5D Mark 2, and I want to make the "best" possible choice I can. The 1Dx seems great, but the 5D Mark 3 might be the best choice, depending on what it can really do. No rumors, no he said she said. Just facts. I'm excited either way!
Sandy is short/nick name for someone who has Alexander as a name.
.......I'm so tired of hearing people flip flopping and getting up on their soap box and announcing "Canon loses" or "I'm going to Nikon". How does it REALLY matter?
Hell, the most moving and memorable images burned into the minds of most people on our planet, let's say "Top 100 photos of all time", are most likely ALL film. Taken decades (or longer) ago, on cameras that are laughable compared to ANYTHING we have now. In terms of features, abilities and technology, even usability and reliability. What does that say, truly, about GO.....
PS 5DMK2 was the best seller upper lvl camera that canon ever had.
now this crown i'm sure will go to nikon
It's interesting to me that most things that are technical in nature like computers, monitors, etc... tend to get better every year and the price drops every year for the same features. I don't really understand why cameras don't fall in that realm, it's a shame isn't it?
+1 Top of the line computers have sold for similar price for some time - with added features and performance. Why not cameras too?
Canon needs to do better to distinguish the market for EF and EF-S lenses and the same for EOS bodies.
Currently, they mix it all up without marketing the advantages of FF or crop properly. If I'm shopping for a Toyota, don't show me a Lexus. It makes the customer feel like they are getting an inferior product.
The $3500 makes sense in terms of features compared to the rest of canon's lineup.
But it makes absolutely no sense compared to D800.
Normally you should expect to get after 3 years of development something better for the same price... With the logic, that the price is okay with extra features EVERYTHING will getting more and more expensive..
My 3 year old televion... 1400,- EUR ... With this logic a new television with tons of more features (LAN, 200hz, 3D) should cost much more... But no! ist less expensive... Same with my car... Paied 15k for it a few years ago.. Now you get a improved model for the same price...
I really cant go with this argument, that after 3 years of development a bit better iso, dual cf/sd and finally a good AF justify the bigger price
5D2 special - $1999What do you mean by '5D2 special'?
5D2 regular - $2399
5D3 regular - $3500
That seems like a BIG jump.
