WPPI - biggest wedding photographer convention at the end of this month.

5D MK II - Biggest wedding photographer camera for canon.

June 2012 - Start of wedding season.

It would be a smart move for canon - but I still think they're hoping to sell a few 1DX's to the desperate first.

Hey,

I am waiting for 650D, as I think previous iterations were announced every year at CP+ at the +-same time :)

Yeah, the 1DX is a perfect wedding camera - covers all the bases, not jst a few.
2 of those and you're pretty much sorted for a few years...

If they announce the 5DmkII replacement on Feb 28th as per the rumors this might give enought time to get this puppy into the hands of wedding photographer for the summer hopefully...
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

Is the 5D the biggest wedding camera? I see a lot more 1Ds III's and now the 1D X is here.

Announcements are made during the week BEFORE the show starts. 

This is because Canon will have the newly announced models on display (at least a model or prototype).  It makes no sense to make a announcement AFTER you put it on display, and the show's purpose it to hype your equipment with show and tell.

Yeah, especially that it's big enough that you can defend yourself from bridezilla with it if things get out of hand :-)

Wow.  If that doesn't put the fear into wedding photography, nothing will!  Thanks for scaring sharing!
