I'd swap the FPS for more MP......but I don't really need them. ;)

My guess is that 90+% of users of the MkIII won't either.

I just made a 17x11 print from my 7D (at ISO 6400!!).....looks great.

Price is back to $3599inc gst, there was an initial error, however with all the orders we put in with Canon Australia, we were able to keep the price as it was.
Aarrgghhhh!

Damn you Leederville Cameras!!.....I don't need a MkIII.....must resist.....wife will kill me.......mustn't pick up the phone........

I'm interested even though I don't really need a high MP body.

Though I'm waiting to see more reviews of the MkIII, especially interesting is the claim of an un-AA function within DPP.   Will it really be un-AAing or just another sharpening tool?

EOS Bodies / Re: Hugely Disappointed In 5D III Price

What have they been doing for 4 years is an interesting question.

5DIII is an enticing proposition, but the body is heavily 7D and the new AF system is from the 1DX.

Is there much 5DIII specific development?

The sensor...

Yep.

Let's hope the comprehensive reviews of production models show 4 yrs R&D in the IQ.

Fingers crossed!

The cheapest price I can find is this:
http://www.leedervillecameras.com.au/digital-slr-cameras/canon-dslrs/canon-eos-5d-mkiii-body-only

And it's AUS stock!!!!!!

Shipping is only $16

Wow, good deal.

Will be interesting to see what the grey importers can do.

Might be getting a 5D MkIII after all. ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: 5DIII pre-order thread

pre-ordered mine this morning from Camera Pro here in Brisbane. i was one of the first, if not the first, which is good since i don't see Brisbane getting that many.  ::) and at $3,865.00 AUD, i'm probably getting it for the cheapest price around at the moment.

Nice...that's a bit more like it.

Maybe I should flog off my 7D and 5D MkII on ebay..........

Want one......but don't need one, so the price settles it.  Could buy 2x MkII's for this.

No MkIII for me.  :'(

Let's see where the price is in 12-18 months (and how the 2nd price for a MkII is holding up - which, given the MkIII price, might be quite well!) and I might reconsider.

Seems there is no dedicated 'direct print' button.

I'll be jumping ship to Nikon immediately.

« on: March 01, 2012, 07:59:03 AM »
the price Ted's is selling it for is ridiculous.....

good thing i never intended to preorder from them anyway. :)

Won't know how ridiculous until we see some other ads.


Maybe later today.....

Oz site posted on another thread has an ad up for pre-order MkIII with specs;

61 AF points.

6fps

Price..........$A4200 body only.  Looks like $US3500 might be right.
