i believe this to be the most accurate rumour they will release the 5d mk3 plenty of xmas sales me being one :D and they will leave the big boys till a couple of months before the games and will sell plenty of those too :D
merry xmas to me :D

If Canon start releasing camera based on Christmas I'll be damned. Xmas doesn't mean anything for most of the population of this planet.
your full of rubbish give me a link to some of your pictures to i see how PRO you really are lol and jeff ascough wedding photographer and eos professional shoots with 2 5d mk2 he prefers the smaller body and yes so there you go small boy

turn down the flames dude, he said that he cant use the 5D because of the extreme conditions he shoots in, not because he is too "pro" for it and needs a 1D(s) body

Right. But Bornshooter is also right. My job is not taking beautiful photos. Even if I can do it on my free time, my work involves documenting stuff with the camera. Harsh environment is what I go through sometimes. The 5DII is a great camera. Like I said previously, if Canon come out with a 5DIII that has weather sealing and AF performance in low light of the 1D, I'm all up for it.

I seem to remember acquiring my 5D MkII around Christmas so that kind of announcement would tie with the 5D MKII.  If this rumour is true then the design of the MkIII would have to finalised, the production line in place and ready to roll, because the sheer amount of product required to satisfy demand is enormous.  I wonder what the time is for a camera to begin its life, to it being shipped and available on the shelves, with a new camera like the 5D MkIII with high initial demand it wouldn't be unreasonable for a 2 month build up a stock to satisfy that.  The 5D MkII took Canon a little by surprise when it was unable to keep up, so is the 5D MkIII already in production?

Of course all of this assumes an October announcement!

I look forward to the appearance of the 5DIII.
Hopefully it will appear quicker than 8-15mm f4L. announced last August and now trickling into stores.
With the London Olympics less than a year away the chances of obtaining either it or a 1D successor seem slim
unless you pre-order and pay a premium price. (Of course loan stock may suddenly be available for Olympics)
Hopefully Canon will prove us wrong!!!!

On pricing, what was the 5D2 at launch? Start guessing from there. It will be more than £2k, and it might be even worse this time around due to currency effects.

$2999 would be nice. Hope the price would drop in 3-4 months to $2499. Kit bundle with 24-105 II IS USM for $3999 would be fantastic.

Anyone catch the price of the new A77?  It's competing against the 7d and is starting $300 less than the 7D MSRP... any chance this will force canon to lower prices on bodies?  Or is that wishful thinking?  FYI the 5d m2 started at 2699 but may have been higher or lower depending on store to store. 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

If Canon start releasing camera based on Christmas I'll be damned. Xmas doesn't mean anything for most of the population of this planet.

Christmas is definitely something marketing types pay a lot of attention too.  You are absolutely right about the demographics, but there will be a lot more sales of cameras based on Christmas than on the European Championship Soccer or even the Olympics.  Yes, there will be a definite bias towards consumer models for the holiday, but I can't even imagine how many thousands of 5D cameras will be sold.  Compared with how many pros will actually buy a new camera for the Olympics.  (Note, I am not a religious person, but I have been in a BestBuy right before Christmas)

My personal opinion is that they will release 5dMKIII soon, because the 1D/Ds is not ready yet.  The new 1 series has to be very high end based on what Sony just released(OLED viewfinder, High FPS, Actual AF in video, ETC...).  Both for Video and Pro-sumer level.  Sony is who Canon needs to lose sleep over, not Nikon.

Yeah, but is a 5-series camera really a typical stocking stuffer? It always seemed a weird time to aim for. They release everything so late in the year. Main wedding season is over in many of the more populated parts of the world, fall foliage season over, summer sports over, fall sports mostly over, summer trips to places to photograph over, etc. It just seems to me that they release them right as it enters one of the slower times for photography for a fairly large percentage of people in the world. Every cycle they release later and later, first they had them in stores by early sept then late then late oct then nov, so right when all the stuff many were hoping to use them for has ended, then they release them.

List price of 5dII £2299 body only though now selling around £1600 

Suspect launch price to be in region of £2500 - 3000 hopefully falling to £2000 - 2200 when initial demand has been met probably six months after stock hits the shops.

I really want a FF 1DV, but if the 5DIII has 7D af or better, shoots 6fps or better and has weather sealing at least as good as the 7D, I'll hold my nose and buy it..lol!  I need or should I say, I want a new FF body now!!!  Especially since my 70-200 2.8 IS II is on the way.  ;D

I can always sell it later with not much of a loss if the 1DV is all that....

Nikon D1x - 1319 days
Nikon D700 - 1149 days (and counting)
Canon 5D - 1122 days
Sony a900 - 1079 days (and counting)

Personally I think we'll see a new 7D mk2 much sooner than most people believe aswell.

Who knows? the new rebel t4i? 650D will be announced next February like every year
if they do not have a new sensor to put in this camera (probably trickling down from a possible 7DII) they would have to use the 18mpx CMOS from the 7D a 5th time! (7D, 60D, 550D, 600D and 650D) or develop a new sensor for a rebel line (unlikely?)

Given that the rumours of Sony going to 25 megapixels have been around for awhile I'd be supprized if Canon stuck with the old 7D sensor for the next round of crop releases.

It would definitely have the same sensor as the 7d, productionwise, it's cheaper and it makes more sense to give the higher models the new sensors and the lower models the older technology.

production wise yes
marketing wise a 3rd Rebel with the same sensor is highly unlikely

Why? We are talking about a 650D aren't we? And the 7D isn't old enough to be replaced, this year :) 'If' the 5DmkIII is going to be released begin next year, then marketing wise they will not replace the 7D at the same time.
