5d Mark iii price?
« on: February 19, 2012, 05:11:34 PM »
What's the latest on the 5d mark iii pricing? I hope it's not like the jump the 24-70mm lens took from version I to version II.

£2750.

That's my guess! My opinion is worth what you paid for it!

depends on what is released.

I still think Canon will try to come in around the £22-£2500 for a 5D2 replacement.
If they go with a D800 competitor, i'm not so sure - nearer the £3k mark.

I think the latest lens prices is a very good indicator unfortunately. If so I’m going to jump ship – to the mk2  ;D

Jessops was £2300 at the launch from what I could gather back in Nov 2008.
I'd expect at least a 20% hike on the 5D mark II price

I'm guessing $3299-$3499 and $4999 for the cinema dslr.

3499$-3999$ depending on:

1. further production of 5d2 (closer to 3999 if 5d2 still produced)
2. IQ and features increase (the better the more expensive)
3. comparison to d800 (the bigger advantage over d800 the closer to 3999)

it WILL be $3000-3500 . . . count on it! (hope I am wrong)

If the 1Dx would've been a $5000 camera, then the new 5D would be around $2000-2500.

Take 5d2. It's great.

I also count for cheap upgrade. But it will be great if it were under 3.5k$. I hope they don't dare go over 4k$.
4k$ for 4k cinema. Ugly perspective.

The 5D released at $3,299.  The 5D mk II was $2,699.  If I had to guess, I'd think middle of that- $2,999.  That's the magic limit for me.

Hell if I know but since you're asking for guesses I'm going to say, $3,300.

It just feels like they've raised their prices on everything lately because of the yen. I don't predict that they'll release the new 5D at 2008 prices.

Why wouldn't it be priced like the d800 near 3k?
