70d price discussion & poll results
« on: June 29, 2013, 04:47:49 PM »
Since the price is now confirmed here are the results (for pre-order price see thread http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=15670.0):

Canon is realistic this time:
25% of you were correct
12% guessed too low
63% guessed too high
- don't you Nikon trolls trust our favorite brand to be reasonable :-p ?

# --

I really like my price polls, because at least with the 5d3 very few people estimated how sky-high the price tag would be on release. Now it's your chance to prepare your next "I told you so!" post:

Will Canon this time fight Nikon on the same level, will they try to undercut them like with 60d/d7000, or will they sidestep Nikon with the new live view af and try to make a healthy profit like 5d3/d800?

For anybody who hasn't seen them: Here's the thread about the [cr3] rumored specs: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=15594.0

P.S: Please vote for what you think the price will really be, not what you'd wish it to be.

It'll be either $1100 or $1200.

And i seriously hope it's a d7100 killer.

Since voting is open until July 9, I'll wait until it's announced next week. Sure to get it right that way.

But that's no fun :-p ... there isn't any option to make the poll shorter I'm afraid, I set it to 10 days because I somehow don't really expect the camera to be announced on July 2nd already, not after all the past delays...

It doesn't have to be less than the D7100 to compete with it- I'm guessing $1400 so it's "within reach" of the D7100 and can be kitted with a couple of lenses for under $1800.

EOS 6D, 60D, 17-40L, 70-300L, 40 2.8, 50 f1.8, 100L Macro, Sigma 30/1.4, Sigma 8-16, Tamron 150-600.

Sorry, Mars. I did not know the poll feature was so limited.

I'm expecting to see this product come in around $1800US.

Canon's pricing plan these days seems to have two basic features:

1. Communicate through price that the item is a premium product unmatched by anything else in the marketplace. (Nikon does not exist in this realm.)

2. Provide room to gracefully fall back to a lower price if necessary and to allow "sales" and other retailing gimmickry without too much MAP offense.

When (if?) a 7D2 arrives it will exceed $2500US as I've been saying for a long time.

So, there you go -- I'm out there.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say $999.99 US.... It's not a rebel, it's not a pro body.... think of it as a gateway drug....get people hooked on a good camera and then they buy the expensive stuff. There is a psychological barrier to $1000, it will be a hair under.

I think I need to find rehab soon, went shopping with hubby to get paint and ended up only making enquiries with a group from the local camera club. Hubby was ok with this no painting today. If I knew the price was out of my budget then I could move on.

Judging by the leaked specs, the 70D is virtually a 7D MKii.

So the 70D will probably be priced just below the 6D.

Canon 50D + EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM

I'll play. I would expect the adjusted street price 6-12 months after release to be around $1100-$1300, so my guess as to release price would be around $1500-$1700 for reasons that Distant Star gave. Don gets the Optimist of the Year award.

The 70D will be about $1100.  The 7D MK II will be about $1800.  The competition is already out there, so the price is set.  Canon miscalculated when they set the price for the 5D MK III.
 
Canon really can't command a high price considering the specs.  Except for Wifi, and the tilt LCD, its pretty much just a minor upgrade to the 60D.  If it doesn't have AFMA, it will be relegated to a position more or less equal to the T5i.  The T5i has a touch screen, which for me is more valuable than a tilt screen.

If Canon does that, everyone should be blown away. Coming out with a much better spec'd camera for $100 less than list of the 60D would be crazy.

$1299 list is my guess, with it being under $1000 in sales/selling kit lens deals by Christmas
