Rebate on the 5D MIII expires 1-5-13, I imagine Canon will extend the other rebates until then... maybe even up the rebate amount?

This is what will get my check book out:
1. Low noise at low ISO, high ISO capable sensor
2. Same or higher frame rate
3. Same or higher MP- but only if point 1 is satisfied
4. Two CF card slots
5. Same or better AF (5DIII level?)
6. Same or better build quality
This is not too much to ask, and given the rumors of a brand new sensor and the 46MP FF, I am guessing they are more than expected.
All camera functions are executed via electronic 'commands' from a central processing unit. Hence, ISO and/or AF functions of any camera can be updated thru firmware. Hardware is composed of any piece, structural or physical, that comprises the component(s) of the body.If that were the case, folks would release hacked firmwares right and left but they can't because it is dependent on hardware.
In electronic systems and computing, firmware is a term often used to denote the fixed, usually rather small, programs and/or data structures that internally control various electronic devices.
7D owners, does that post make you anxious or what? Imagine a fix to the ISO noise issues, autofocus issues and whatever other issues we've been having being implemented into the 7D. Man, then it would be an awesome body, wouldn't it?Pretty sure that both ISO and AF is hardware and can't be modified via a firmware. I didn't see the new post on the home page mention anything regarding those, where did you see it?
Waiting here at the edge of our seats for the release........
I just called Canon tech assistance and CPS. They say its a BS rumor. NOTHING AT ALL. THERE WILL BE A firmware UPDATE FOR THE 800MM LENS. Called national camera exchange they said they have heard nothing at all.
Why did you cancel with B&H? They are shipping pre-orders today and it does seem that they received a huge shipment! A ton of users including myself have already received credit charges, "Shipped" status changes, and UPS tracking numbers! Updates are being posted on the B&H order Queue thread. So although B&H lost a lot points for lack of communication, they at least made good on the March 22nd deadline
