Well the low rent autofocus system and a top shutter speed less than my current 50D have put my wallet right back in my pocket.  I have $2,600 burning a hole in my pocket and I don't think this camera is worth what they are asking.  It really looks like they took out as much stuff as possible and hope the "full frame" would sell it.  Disappointment.  In another 6 months I'll be able to afford a 5D3.  I think that is the way to go
Could of just about had one yesterday as they were selling the mark iii for $2750 on Adorama's ebay page.
I've heard that in a number of places.  I look at canon price watch daily and I did not see this .  Does Adorama have a separate ebay page?  Do you have a link?  I would have jumped on this but I keep missing these.  Thanks

Maybe this will turn out to be better than we think.   There may be a reason Adorama decided to sell 818 5D mkIII bodies at $2750 on ebay yesterday.   Coincidence?    ...we'll know soon enough...

Is this true?  I look at price watch every day and didn't see this.  Any left?  How can I make sure I don't miss this again?

So will be tonight around midnight EST?   Hope the 6D is crap... so I won't feel bad about my 5D2.  I don't want to get laughed at and ridiculed when out in public.  People with modern cameras already laugh when they see the outdated CF cards I still use and don't even have an articulating LCD.  It's embarrassing.
Well honestly, what did you expect?  You get out of the house and all of your lenses don't even have a red ring around them?  I bet you secretly have a 580 flash too.  Whats to point of evn going out to take pictures, you don't stand a chance.    ;D

EOS Bodies / Re: Canon EOS 6D Specs Leaked?
« on: September 16, 2012, 08:43:20 AM »
After i saw 5Dmk3 deeping below $3000... i really wonder if the 5d3 will make it down to $2.5K maybe refurbished canon soon.

with the spec of the 6D i might save a bit more and get the 5d3 now that its around $2800 on ebay. other might say $800 will get you a nice L lens, Im talking about the body here.
I only saw the 5D3 dip below 3K once.  That was Beach Camera.  Does anyone know if they are legit and did any one actually score one?  I see it near 3K every once in a while but those look grey market or from sketchy ebay sites.  I guess my great hope is hat the 6D pushes down the 5D3 by a few hundred dollars.  I'm in at 3k.  Right now 3.5k looks like a bridge too far.  It has to come down no?

PowerShot Cameras / Re: Canon S110 Rumor...
« on: September 14, 2012, 05:54:50 PM »
I don't know about this one.  The S95 didn't have a grip on the front and it was so much of an issue that there were after market grips.  They added it to the S100 so I would be surprised if they are losing it one model later.  I think false on this one

99
I wonder if it will have the same green-screen display and the focus point problems as the D800?

This new D600 still doesn't sway me enough to trade out of my 5D3.
but how about a 7D who's original price point wasn't too far off this?  They have a D800 to match the 5D3

You should see specs of the 6D Mark II - this is something definitely worth to wait for!

:D

OK,  some of us deserved that  ;D

Lenses / Re: Where is Canon
« on: September 12, 2012, 08:24:30 AM »
I think the D800 caught them flatfooted.  They thought the Pixel wars were over.  The market seems to think otherwise. Oh, and all reviews point to the D800 having those "quality" pixels.  I suspect Canon may have had stuff to announce that was not going to be competitive with the competition, particularly with their new pricing policy (you will pay MORE!!).  They have to regroup a bit and accelerate a few products.  Thats also dangerous as both Nikon and Canon seemed to have slipped in the first run quality department (5D3 light leaks, S100 problems, D800 auto focus problems).  Canon will have stuff soon enough but it looks like September will be light.  I suspect they will be focusing on their lenses (pun intended)

EOS Bodies / Re: Is a 46mp Canon EOS-1 on the Way? [CR1]

In my opinion, if Canon does not launch an cheaper model around 2500-3000€ with 35+MP, they will loose a lot of photographers.

Are they 'losing a lot of photographers' to the D800 now?   ::)
No, not yet, but if you were new to the pro market it's a tough choice between the D800 and the 5D3.  I guess one lends itself to the wedding market and the other to the landscape market but if I was starting from scratch the Nikon is a compelling camera

sure some lads will be happy with this news! but definitely canon should focus on the cheap FF first!

I think they will address the advanced amateur market first.  The 60D and the 7D are much in need of a refresh and as the 7D is 3 years old the regular product life cycle would mean there is something in the works.  As for the high MP camera here?  If true this is the answer to the Nikon D-800E.  Canon can sit and let Nikon take over the landscape and nature markets.   I think challenging the 800E is not something that can be done quickly so unless Canon had something in the works all along this may be announced as a work in progress.  What ever it is I'm sure I won't be bale to afford it buy I guess I will buy a lottery ticket.  One can dream

So, now I'll be an old fart using an S95!

Oh, how the children will laugh.

Seems that the 295 was the sweet spot.  The s 100 came out, had a bunch of initial problems, just getting that sorted out, and now a replacement shows up.  Sometimes you just get some of those short lived models.  I know, I'm on a 50d.  I also have an s95 and it's still a sweet camera.  That small, with quality RAW?   good camera

If Canon releases a 6D now they have my money. I even wait until end of October, but then if nothing happens and I won't wait forever I go with the new Nikon D600...just saying - not that anyone would care.

Well I care ... because I'm thinking along the same lines myself.   8)

I care to, and I am thinking along the same lines.  I am waiting to replace my 50D and have a budget of $2,500 .  I can continue to drive towards a 5d (getting close) , hope Canon wants to take my money for a lower priced ful frame, or jump ship.  Right now it looks like Nikon is in the technical lead here.  The only thing keeping me on Canon is my 70-200 f4L and my 24-105L .  Canon's new (every body pays MSRP for the new 5DIII really pissed me off.  They are about to drive a bunch of advance amateurs out the door.  a 3 year old 7D is not going to do it for me.  Show me something new or I'll start looking
