On 1001 noisy cameras we read what has been around for quite a while. But if NL put it again, maybe there is something to it...  CRguy: Any news? 8)

Rumors: Canon 5D Mark X coming February 28 for $2700

A new testable rumor at Kuaddro.com suggests that the Canon 5D Mark X will be announced around February 28 with a price of $2700. The rumor also rumorizes two lenses, one of which we saw announced last night, the other being a 35/1.4L. [the rumor was written before last night's Canon announcements] (via Foto Actualidad).

With the Nikon D800/D800E now officially announced, it will be interesting to see whether the 5DX has "accidental leaks" left and right so as to grab some of the headlines and discussions away from the D800.


They are referring to a Kuaddro.com post.
Maybe Kuaddro.com just shares what we've seen already via CR...  :-\

NAB 2012 looks quiet possible for next announcements. April 16 - April 19 in Las Vegas. Don't know if there are any other big shows to show up new camera/lenses.

Everybody's tired waiting. Let's not forget that the decision Canon has to make will last for the next 2, 3 years. They have some prototypes, now they will decide and I'm sure there won't be so many dissapointed.

Regarding price - there is an inflation, financial market is not helping in terms of prices setting. From he perspective of users, DSLR market starts to be more and more expensive business. The highest quality has it's price and I'm sure we'll be finally amazed with the new DSLR.

Yes, we are tired. But I think that we will be pleased with new products. Canon has reason not to put a half-made/half-tested product to market. They want to make it worth upgrading from current bodies/lenses and for new users.

I can see people whining if Canon announce 5D-X with 22 mpx "Why not a crazy high mpx camera, I'm switching to D800 !" and if Canon announce 3D/6D high mpx, 4k capable camera "Why so much mpx ? I do not need 4k. I won't toss 4000 USD for this !". That's why I think they could announce both to please a wider range.

Last time they rushed the 5d, there were problems right out the gate... Black dots anyone?  Lets hope they get it right and deliver a flawless product. 
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.

The rumor missed one lens, got another wrong and missed the date on the other so I don't believe it is credible at all for the body.
