EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: Reminder: Announcements on September 17, 2012

With the EOS 6D at 2099 USD we can now expect the EOS 7D Mark II to cost maximum 1699 USD.

1Dx = 6799
3D = 4499
5D3 = 3499
6D = 2099
7D2 = 1699
70D = 1099
650D = 799
Who says there will be one?

I think there will be one but I can't be 100% shure. The gap between 60D/70D and 6D will be to big without a 7D replacement. And the 7D can't live on forever. At some point it will need Digic 5+.

Jeez. So they really are calling it a 6D?

Yeah I don't like the even number. I would have prefered 9D. But, then the 7D number would be above the 9D.
And that will not be the case. Canon should have named 7D "9D" from the start. Allowing them to fill in a mini 5D in the form of a FF 7D. But the did not expect a D600 at that time (2009) I guess.

February 2013 maybe. But the 7D is aging too. 3 years now.

Forget about EOS xxxD size body. Just look at the D600. It will 7D or 60D like in size and weight. Maybe 760 grams without battery and memory card.

EOS Bodies / Re: Another Spec List for the Entry Level Full Frame EOS

Yip NO "swively thingy" for me, it could be a deal breaker--I want mag alloy and weather sealing.  I think it is pretty clear that Canon will not add a flip screen to metal WS bodies.   Canon, these are still "still" cameras first, video is secondary.   And don't turn it into a FF 60D (no offense 60D users) with plastic, swivel screen, and no AFMA?  Unfortunately, I do think the new "entry" FF will be plastic, and with swivel screen, but not sure about no AFMA.

From my point of view, Canon:
  • needs true replacement for 5D Mk II as FF for enthusiasts
  • price it similarly to 5D Mk II - so around 2000 USD
  • should make it like "more then 5D Mk II" but "less then 5D Mk III" - less fps (around 4), smaller buffer, lower ISO range (to 51200/102 400 as max expanded) etc - basicly not to cut form 7D and 5D Mk III sales
  • should make it with better AF then 5D Mk II but not 61-point - 7D-like AF or 31-point with 9 cross-type
  • should make it from mag-alloy with some sort of sealing - 5D Mk II-like

This is what I'm talking about. A 5D Mark IIN. They can't go wrong with this type of camera. Price it around 2000 €.

I just want a 5D Mark II with better screen (3:2, 1040k) and better AF, Digit 5 and a new sensor. The larger eyecup would also be a bonus. I'm wearing glasses.
 

5D3 perhaps?



My budget is 2500 €. In Sweden 5D Mark 3 costs 3800 €.

I was not aware of your budget, and 3800 euros for a $3499 CAD camera is nuts.

It's really not a budget thing but I simply can't justify myself spending this kind of money on a camera. I'm just a entusiast, not even a semi-pro.

swivel screen is a must!

can't do video without it
and its a tool for low angle shots


want some better sealing go buy 5D3 or 7D

...same one can say with swivel screen. If you want one - buy 60D (or wait for successor) or 650D  ;) You wont get sealing, magnesium alloy body...but will have swively thing.

Different people - different wishes/expectations  :) IF rumors are true and this body will come for Photokina I think that Canon has already decided about how it will look and what specs it will have.

Here in Slovakia 5D Mk II costs about 1919 € (some time ago one official Canon seller had it for 1787€). Mk IIIs are priced at 3099 € for body only. Ive heard that northern European countries have sick prices. I think 3099 € for Mk III is sick price (compared to US price), but I remember Mk II was priced similarly.

You have 3 options:
  • buy 5D Mk II now
  • wait for entry FF to see how it is in terms of specs and price. Then decide between - new FF and 5D Mk II
  • save money for 5D Mk III (price will go down in time)

All depends on how long you can wait  ;)

Yes, these options are exactly what I'm looking at.  ;)
I have waited for almost 4 years now (sep 2008). I skipped the 5D Mark II and kept my original 5D.
