5D Mark III & More Information [CR1]
« on: August 07, 2011, 02:16:13 PM »

Random bits of information

5D Mark III (or similar) announced in the February timeframe.



  • Different sensor than the 1D Mark V

  • It is still not clear whether it will have 26, 28 or 32 megapixel.

  • The sensor tech of the 1D Mark V will be used for future crop bodies e.g. the 7D Mark II.

  • The 7D Mark II is a late 2012 camera.

  • Expect significantly better noise reduction in high ISO modes.

  • Another full frame camera for sports and press this fall?

  • Announcements could be as early as the week of August 29, 2011.


EF 14-24 f/2.8L

I’m told this will be announced in Q1 2012.


CR’s Take

This is a big [CR1], I am posting information that is at least plausible. Grain of salt and all that. Various rumor sites are going to get a lot of stuff coming our way in the next few weeks, sorting it is always a challenge.

14-24mm would be nice, been pondering getting a wider fast prime to use on my crop, been considering the f1.8 28mm and I'm a tad reluctant to look at the 10-22mm EF-S due to the speed, or the 17-55m EF-S lens because of the mixed reviews and comments on build quality...    Price ?  Hopefully less than the 16-35mm, circa £700-800 maybe ?

be great if a 14-24 would be that price but I highly doubt it i have a feeling it would be over 1000 hope I'm wrong though

No way - just look at the price of the Nikkor.
Perhaps the Sigma 12-24II or its APS-C counterpart 8-16?

I have heard via a rep that Nikon plan to release a camera in the Autumn and then one in the Fall. He also claims that he knows Canon are releasing two models in the interim periods. Which are of a similar level and quality. The first from Nikon in the D700 replacement and then next is a D3 replacement.

i wonder how they'd distinguish it from the 14mmL already in the lineup.  Usually you loose some speed when you get a zoom, but since Nikon has the f2.8 I'd be very surprised if canon didn't match them.  Maybe they'll just discontinue the 14mm?

Nikon has already scheduled a press conferance on August 24, and the details and availability of the new models have leaked. http://nikonrumors.com/2011/08/02/august-24th-nikon-d700-and-d3s-successors.aspx/

However, Canon has yet to schedule any press conferences.  You do not introduce a new pro camera model without a big press splash, so we are all waiting to hear of a upcoming press anouncement.

How about asking your sources to provide an overview of how the pro line is changing overall? Sports bodies with hi fps, studio bodies with built-in radio strobe control, video bodies with follow focus...

If the 1D MarkV sensor tech is used for the next set of crop cameras then...

@28MP, 1.6x = 10 MP
@32MP, 1.6x = 12.5 MP
@36MP, 1.6x = 14 MP

... so this must be some reference to the engineering that makes up the sensor, not the actual pixel pitch.

Fall and Autumn are the same thing, so 2 cameras this fall?

".Different sensor than the 1D Mark V"

Maybe that should read 1Ds?

"The sensor tech of the 1D Mark V will be used for future crop bodies e.g. the 7D Mark II."

And it'll still be a 7D? no no no

No, 2 cameras this autumn.
but winter's nearly over, so next autumn doesn't start until march1 2012, sounds about right for any 5d3 release ...  ::)
Too much gear, too little space.

Terms like fall and autum mean different months to those in the Southern and Northern hemispheres.  Sometimes its clearer to just name a month.  For us in the North, Fall is coming on September 23, 2011..
