So the rebate is 200 off the 2999 msrp? Bah that's lame but whatever I guess it's an ok deal still.

We should be getting leaks in two or three days, as more and more people become aware of the details. It is true that new lens announcements are kept quiter than announcements for bodies, just not as many leaks.
This quiet period is the sign of a lot of new lenses and bodies !
100-400 f/4-5.6 L IS II
200-400 f/4 L IS II
400 f/5.6 L IS II
7D mark II
yes i'm an optimistic guy
I think one thing people are forgetting is that for a year after a body is released, its price is very high...like, 50% higher than they sell for right now. Do you really believe the new 7D is going to be worth $17-1800+ for the body when the current one can be had for $1100?
so you prefer not to have any new stuff... i see.
i have 2000 euro waiting for a new backup FF body.
no way i buy another 5D MK2 and the 5D MK3 is to expensiv for a backup body.
Anyone shooting a wedding for the first time should really have some experience behind them first, owning some gear doesn't really qualify you to do a good service to a couple. Most of the advise here is not going to help. Go out there and shoot some events. Learn what works. Even better, shoot with a professional and learn firsthand how to approach things. It's funny how many posts like this end up on various forum sites. What you need to shoot a wedding isn't gear, it's skill and knowing how your gear works in various situations, and even more - what are you capturing - what many call the best day of their life. If you don't know how to do it, should you?
I shot my first wedding with my wife for free, because the couple didn't have a budget for photography. We did a good job considering we were new to weddings, but we were also far out of our depth. You really need to be a second shooter to get some experience.
