I had my heart to set on a Canon version of the Nikon 14-24mm but I'm willing to take a crack at this one!! I'll wait for the reviews.  ;) :)
I'm with you, but I took the leap and pre-ordered this morning.  I'm going to sell of my 16-35 II and hope that the new lens is as good in person as it looks on paper :)
Finger crossed here.  :) Canon adding the IS is a great idea and the price is good.

I am not a good MTF reader :-\


Can someone explain to me the IQ difference between the 16-35 f/2.8II and the 16-35 f/4 IS based on the MTF's?
I put them here (upper images are the 16-35 f/2.8II)


Simple, more contrast (bold lines) and more sharpness in the corners (thin lines), from left to right = center to extreme borders, the higher the lines on the graph, the more transmission of contrast (bold) and sharpness (thin), usually, black lines are for wide open aperture whilst blue lines are for f/8. At least, if Canon did not change its MTF legend :)

EDIT: after more observation of those MTF from 16-35/4L, damn, that will be bitingly sharp at f/8. Landscapers rejoice :)

Two comments, once you 1D X there's no going back, so watch your credit cards.  I just paid mine off but my photo budget is blown for the year.  No regrets whatsoever, though, and if you need 12FPS and/or a bulletproof camera, there is no substitute.

Also, Canon is known to cancel orders paid with non-US payments, so that may be what happened, if you're outside of the US or using a foreign payment source.  If not, just call them, they have great customer service in my experience.
Hello Mack... yes that 1DX is a game changer I really like the 5D Mark III but I love the 1 DX in my hands @ B&H photo and I didn't want to let it go!!! What a beast!!!

Well there you go! The reason the 7D2 has been delayed so long is that it will be a full frame mirrorless dual pixel quad pixel fovenon big megapixel camera with a 1DX build in an EOS-M package.... that will shoot at ISO 819,200 and take 8K video.....

…and cost $1399.   :P
Cute....

Is it April Fool's Day? No!
But I almost feel like, reading this rumor.  >:(

Too much contradictions in it.
Especially the FF mirrorless.  ::)
Foveon like technology and cheaper? Hard to believe.
And just making the sensor cheaper means increasing Canons profit because this will not show in sales price.

So I am about to carry my bucket of salt back home.
+1000000 :) :) :) :) :)

welp just received and unboxed it. it looks like it was def not packaged completely, like someone let it slip out of the warehouse before the final packing steps. Def gray market (no warranty card).

It is def a brand new 5dmkiii though, with all the accessories.

Charging the battery now and will be testing the pants off it to make sure it's properly functional. Will update here when done, will test across my entire lens range as well.

Pretty stoked so far.

*edit* No manual either, but I don't really need that wouldn't be buying such a camera if I didn't know what I was getting into hah. But still provides to the "gray marketness" of this overall. Wish the battery would charge faster :: ) What a beast compared to the t2i it's sitting next to right now lol.
Well that's exciting... enjoy!!! I haven't picked up 5D Mark II since the III arrived!!! :) ;)

Random... I just don't trust them...I bought my 5D Mark III from Best Buy here in CT 4/7/2014... I chatted with the manager and she was able knock $300 off the price. It wasn't the $800 off as they are offering here. Everything that glitters isn't gold either...  I looked through the feedback on some of these ebay stores and saw that some of the buyers of these large dollar purchases (5D Mark III & 1 DX) had to deal with high upsale pressure on the extended warranty and other crap. Some had to go through ebay to get their refund some didn't get the camera until weeks later also some ended up with used items. Hey it's your money... I'd love to save a buck too  :) :) :) ;) ;) ;) ;) I just choose to deal with a reputable seller that's all but in the end I wish those who choose to buy here good luck.  Just in Canon now offering a $200 off on a mail in rebate for this body....

To each his own.  I used a similar deal about 1.5 years ago to get the 5D III for 2500 for a brand new unit with the kit lens removed (which I knew was going to happen).
Hello Random I may look that way for the 1DX I really like the 5D Mark III but I truly love the DX

LOL, I'm afraid to try the 1DX -- I might like it too much and I really can't afford it!
LOL You will. I kicked the tires on the DX @ B&H Photo and what a machine it was!!!

I took the bait and snagged one, it will arrive tomorrow, so basically ridiculously fast shipping. I had also read the reviews, ebay's got you covered for anyone that is skeptical about a seller like this.

You can get your money back, shipping included, extremely easily if you follow the procedures ebay lays out.

It's def one of those "to good to be true", but in the slight chance it is an actual brand new gray market 5dmkiii for that price? I will take it happily.

If it's reboxed, or anything off, it will just go back and ebay will be notified right away.

I will update my post here with the info for anyone who cares, fingers crossed.

Cheers
gni.... I wish you well. I'll be looking for the 1DX soon. I saw some @ 5600 and that's a great deal.....
