Announcement Soon [CR3]
« on: February 17, 2012, 07:20:43 PM »

Get ready

Things are heating up and we’re going to see an announcement soon. February 28, 2012 is still shaping up as the day of an announcement, though it could be a week later. We’ll be seeing a full frame camera announced. We’re still unsure if it’ll be a 5D Mark III or a 5D X.


The next 90 days could be pretty exciting for the Canon community. Expect a bunch of announcements. This isn’t [CR3], but it sounds like we’ll see at least 2 full frame cameras announced before NAB in April. One will probably be the 4K camera. Also expect more lens announcements.

Does this, in any way, mean that it will be in stores by end of April, at least???

Admin, any updates on your previously posted 5D specs ? Now that we're about 1.5 weeks away from the official announcement I would assume that "leaks" should be flowing now. Is the 22MP spec CR3 yet ?

Is that a light at the end of the tunnel -- or a white phosphorus round coming at my heart?

Perhaps in a month or two the clouds will lift and a purchase decision can be made.
You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.

It would be best if Canon announced the next FF with all details and some samples on 28 Feb AND the same day reveal their plans for the upcoming FF models if their details are not finalized yet. Your last post, Craig, will put preorders on hold again until we see all options.
But I guess the most popular FF will be announced soonest - the second and third will be targeting more advanced users. I can't make use of 40+MP right now, my technique is not there yet. 40+ is for experienced photogs with plenty of superb lenses and other devices. May be some day... It is nice to have an option from one FF level to the next FF level. Up til now this hasn't been the case.
Cheers to all patient "waiters" and all other keen canonitees!
