If I had to make a bet, then a printer it is going to be or something else but not a SLR.

The 5D MK3 most definitely requires some sort of show before the announcement, even for the 1D-series it is too silent.

Dealers in the UK get things first, right.  That's why Amazon UK states the Canon S100 will be available on November 25th, and Amazon US emailed me that the S100 which I preordered will be delivered the second week of October.

Stores deal with sales reps. Sales reps are not high enough up on the food chain for that kind of advance information.

Did the bloke behind the counter sell you that line of BS?   ::)

Clearly, they know how to separate people from their money... We are approaching the end of the quarter.  While I agree with unfocused's comments in another thread, stating that a reduced price on the 5DII will have no meaningful impact on Canon's corporate bottom line, moving more units of a big-ticket item very well might make a difference for a relatively small retailer like Jessops (yes, they're a big photography retailer, but small compared to a department store, such as John Lewis with >20-fold higher revenues).

So, I'd say the most likely scenario is that some retailers are trying to meed quarterly sales targets, and discounting the 5DII is one way they're trying to achieve that.  That's why there are price reductions by some retailers, and not others.

you will be proved wrong soon i have inside intel.

Oh, so sorry.  Let me guess, you're real name is Masaya Maeda and you're just trolling these forums for personal amusement, right?  Domo arigato for your sage words of wisdom, Mr Maeda.

Things are heating up!!!

I have no idea what will be announced tomorrow.  Hopefully, it will be something cool that we all care about (5DmkIII).  All I know, there have been multiple times where prices for the mkII have sunk to prices that had to be below cost only to go right back up and no new 5D being announced.

We can all hope though can't we.
5Diii - 50D - 100mm f/2.8, 85mm f/1.2 vii - 50mm f/1.4, 20mm f/2.8, 70-200 f/2.8 vii - 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS, 430 EX II, YN560, YN568, Bowen's 500R's

Jessops also dropped the price of the 7D so does that mean a 7D mark II is coming too. ::).

I certainly don't care about the 5DIII...

People that want the 7DII, what is wrong with you? The 7D is nearly new still and has tons of great feature that no other Canon camera has... What is wrong with it?

People that want a 5DIII, ok... This one needs an update I grant you that. Still, let's not forget the 1DsIII is more than 4 years old...

Tomorrow, if anything is announced it should be a 1DsIV or something like it. Maybe a 5DIII along with it. The 7DII is nowhere near...

Advanced preview of the pro announcement!

:P

That confirms it!!!  New 5D tomorrow!!!  They only changed the name to CR-2 PLUS Retinal Camera, and it now weighs 44 pounds.  I guess I'll have to get a new tripod now.
