5D X or Mark III Specs & Release Date? [CR1]
« on: February 02, 2012, 09:43:46 AM »
5D X / 5D Mark III The last week has been insane for rumors. I have had more than 150 “tips” sent in and going through them all has been lots of fun. The variance in information is wider than I’ve ever seen it previously.

More stuff Below is a spec list I received last week. It goes along with various other sources in regards to release date and specs.

  • 5D X
  • 22 mp
  • 61pt AF with DIGIC 4
  • 6.9 FPS
  • DIGIC 5 (Doesn’t say DIGIC 5 )
  • Announcement February 28
  • with 3 lens
  • Available April $2700

With Nikon announcing on February 7, 2012, and most thinking it’ll be the D800. I expect some kind of a camera to be announced by Canon within a month. If they can get these things shipping by April, a lot of wedding photographers will be happy.

We’ve seen one report about an October ship date for the 5D Mark III. If it’s not the 5DX/Mark III coming in the next month or so, then something else will be.

If they kill the 7D mk II, they will have my limitless rage! :'( Or sorrow.

Seriously though, they had better not kill the 7D line off!
What is truth?

1DX killer?
« Reply #4 on: February 02, 2012, 10:03:08 AM »
I would LOVE to be wrong, but how could this camera be real?  What differentiates it from the 1DX?  (ie. is there $4100 in difference?)

61pt AF?  Smells like a 1DX
6.9FPS?  Pretty powerful to pump 22MP through on just a Digic 5
$2700?  Why would I ever pay $6800 for a 1DX aside from [arguably] a little ISO help on the top end?

These rumored specs seems too good to be true for $2700 (like others have said), considering that things like AF is the same as the 1Dx (more then twice the price) and pretty high frame rate.

And speaking of frame rate, the 1Dx uses 2 Digic 5+ processors. At 12 fps at 18MP= 216MP/sec. Scaling that to a 22 MP sensor, Dual Digic 5+ would be able to move 22MP at nearly 10fts.
One Digic 5+ would maybe do 5fts at 22MP??

So unless the 5d mk3/mkx has dual Digic 5+, I don't see how it can do 6.9fps.
On a single Digic 5+ CPU I can believe anything roughly under 5fps

I am assuming that the 12fps the 1Dx does is limited by data throughput, but the limitation could be mechanical (mirror movement), in which case the upper limit of throughput is below 12fps at 18MP, otherwise Canon would have used just one in the 1Dx.

Indeed! It may be a little early, but I am going to call shenanigans on this rumor.

I can't believe the FPS or AF.

If they had said 5-ish fps, and 45 point AF; that I could have believed.

The rumored specs look good enough. Really wish I was getting a mpx jump. But if this camera is basically just a baby 1Dx then I am sold. Weather seals, AF, and fps: basically the 7Difying of the 5D2. At $2700, seems fair.

What concerns me is what lurks behind this camera. I will be migthy mad if I buy this and then Canon later in the year releases their version fo the camera I really want: the Nikon D800.

3+ lenses has me intrigued, unless of course those lenses are the 200-400, 500, and 600 super teles. In which case we'll all hit snooze.

Not to be a hater, but I think this sounds more like a wish list... my wish list.. =)  IF it's true, I'll be ordering mine asap... if not than i'll go sulk in my room.
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, Canon 85 1.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

Another hypothetical option to get the math working might be dual Digic5 instead of single/dual Digic5+.

What would $2700 be in £GBP. I dont mean a straight conversion, I mean that here in the U.K we normally pay a bit more than just the conversion rate for our gear.
