Seriously, in Canada it costs about $1.30 per thousand dollars per month to insure your gear against replacement and all risks.
Me also would like to know which company charges $1.30 per thousand dollars per month to insure your gear fully ?
I think a high MP fullframe product in development annoucement. A release in Q2 2014
For a shoulder bag I've used the ThinkTank Speed Racer V2 (smaller versions are Speed Demon/Speed Freak). It's padded (but bigger and squarer than a messenger bag) but what I really like about these bags is that they come with a padded waist strap so if you want to lug a lot of gear then you can fold out the waist strap (normally tucked into pockets) and put it on to take most of the load off of your shoulder strap (so it doesn't dig in). The waist strap also stabilizes the bag when walking, climibing, etc. so you don't have to worry about it sliding off of your shoulder and falling to the ground. They also come with a rain cover tucked in as well.
For a seven day trip in Southern California (including walking around theme parks for days with the kids) I carried a 5D3 with 24-70 F/2.8L mounted (sometimes in the bag while getting around outside the park), 16-35 F/2.8 II, 24 mm F/1.4 II, 70-200 F/2.8 OS, 1.4x converter and a 7D body inside the bag. On the pouches outside I had a 600EX-RT plus spare cards, batteries and lens hoods. Loaded up it was a bit over 20 pounds but I survived the trip.
Looks to be a general Canon promotional event not a product announcement. Probably similar to the "Live Learning" events that Canon puts on in the U.S.
+1, doesn't look like an announcement, just Canon waving their flag.
The biggest reason for me waiting is for the dual pixel sensor.
The biggest benefits of dual pixel sensors is for live-view focusing and video. Neither of these are priorities of the 1D-X target market. Canon will be in no hurry to put this technology in the 1D-X series and if it requires any tradeoffs it may never make it into the series.
It isn't really a rebate, you get a American Express Gift card that has a monthly charge for unused balance (After a initial period). I consider a rebate to mean that I actually get a check in the mail.
However, Its still better than store credit because many places I shop will accept AMEX.
I have trimmed my kit so I have minimal duplications.
I don't mind duplication. For example, I've got the 70-200/2.8L IS II, 70-300L, and 100-400L. It's fine, as long as they have a use...and I actually use them. After getting the 24-70 II, I stopped using the 24-105, and couldn't see using it further. I had been using the 28-300L for travel, but since getting the 70-300L, I've taken the 24-70 + 70-300 instead - broader range, better IQ, takes up the same bag space, and I don't mind the lens changes.
