A new book dedicated to a 5D Mark III has appeared on the Amazon.fr web site. The release date for the book is March 9, 2012. The book apparently comes from Pearson, which is pretty reputable.

Actually, it 'appeared' way back in November, and was discussed in this CR thread.

That its original appearance and resurfacing seem to mirror the D800's rumoured and actual release does seem somewhat credible though.

What if the supposed resurfacing of the book isn't a resurfacing at all? What if it was just there, as it was in November already? What if it was the same case on the other sites? Then could we call it a "rediscovery" only?

Please also note what Takuma posted earlier concerning CeBit:[From canon.de: (http://www.canon.de/About_Us/Press_Centre/Press_Releases/Business_Solutions_News/1H12/cebit.aspx)


Wie im Vorjahr zeigen Canon und Océ keine Hardware um das Kernthema des MPS-Parks zu unterstreichen.


It says that canon will not be showing hardware at CeBIT./b]

Hmmm, but after a little "research" I've found out that Canon Europe is sharing booth with some DICOM company. This company deals with some scanners and software and does some hardware services. Also that booth is situated in Business IT section.

So maybe really nothing for CeBIT. Hmmm.

CeBIT really doesn't seem the sort of show they would use for this. It's the place that new computers might get unveiled but not something like this.

Using translate.google.com to translate the French book description:
Très didactique et magnifiquement illustré, cet ouvrage vous délivre les bases à connaître sur le reflex numérique Canon EOS 5D Mark III, et décrit précisément chacune des fonctions et des options de paramétrage de ce boîtier. Il s'attarde sur les techniques spécifiques pour photographier les différents sujets que vous pourrez être amené à rencontrer chaque jour (portrait, action, paysage, macro.). Enfin, il vous guide pour appréhender les différentes étapes de la postproduction et les choix d'évolution de votre matériel photographique.

to English results in:

Very educational and beautifully illustrated, this book delivers the basics you need to know about the DSLR Canon EOS 5D Mark II, and accurately describes each of the functions and configuration options of this case. It focuses on specific techniques for photographing different subjects that you may be asked to meet every day (portrait, action, landscape, macro.). Finally, it guides you to understand the different stages of post production and evolution of your choice of photographic equipment.

Apparently III in French means II in english.   :(

Ah Moose beat me to it!

I can only add that the XML file indicates a publication date of the 13th January 2012. The Chapters website indicates a publication date of the 28th February 2012. I can only guess that Canon pushed back the launch possibly so that they launched after Nikon launched the D800.
