*UPDATE* New High-End DSLR Later in February [CR3]
« on: January 29, 2012, 12:48:37 PM »
*UPDATE* Invites have gone out to Canon Platinum CPS members to prioritize purchases of the new EOS-1D X. This is most likely the CPS event we’ve been told about.

For the launch of the Canon EOS-1D X, Canon would like to offer priority purchase for CPS Platinum members, as our most valued customers, we want to ensure we continue to add value to the CPS program where we can.

Not on February 7 [CR3] There will not be a 5D Mark III or similar announced on February 7, 2012.  It is suggested the “embargo” lift on the 7th may be for samples from the EOS-1D X.

Lenses [CR2] Another 24-70 f/2.8L II mention came my way. It will be announced with a DSLR.

More to come.

Well I just hope its early Feb for both. I've already got plans for the combo staring in may. What are the chances I can get this by then? Fingers crossed!

Makes me wonder when they are going to announce it, are there any major shows after CP+ but before Photokina? Maybe they'll just call a press conference like they do with the 1D series?

If this means we will finally see some real RAW sample from the 1DX it will be amazing.  At least we will know for sure what we are in for.  I guess we will have to cross our fingers for the new DSLR a bit longer...As Ricku said it, give it to us already!

1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

The headline is not referred to in the text below. More to come indeed!

Does 5D count as "high end" ?

This post poses more questions than it answers.

I think Canon has to announce something soon to show they have a horse in the race.

My thoughts exactly. The post title says late Feb, no further explanation in the body. So, is the "late Feb" CR3, or just the "not Feb 7th"?

Any possibility of the 24-70 getting bundled with say the 5D MkII successor? (Isn't the 1dX being sold as body only?)

The d800's going to be pushing video - their motorbike in Chicago show reel seems to really be pushing that (and presumably it's low light performance).  How might Canon reply to that angle? Nikon's seemingly going to claim  superiority over 5D MkII's video performance.

Embargo lift on High ISO, low light 1DX will be good to see anyway. Does that also mean embargo lifting for reviews?
