none of them was given CR3

It was only the fact that something will be announced that was CR3.  There were no CR3 specifications.

Canon claimed 1DX is a filmmakers' DSLR. Now, the 5D3 will be bettter??
Check Nikon's two new DSLRs, they have more video features than Canon's at least on paper. And D800's video features are almost as the same as D4(it seems Nikon always make their non-pro consumers happy when they compare the key elements with the top-end model).
It's time for Canon to make some hard desicions becasue they have cinema DSLR. We will see in two weeks if this rumor is correct.

NDA's expire on the 2nd, so probably announcement on the 1st. So test shots of pre-production cameras can only be put online the day after, like with the D800.

Note: March 1st 1987: announcement of the first EOS ever: EOS650 --> 25th anniversary is an nice announcement date :)

They still have a week to decide which prototype to announce. For sure they are confused reading contradictory requirements here :) :)

I just hope Canon haven't made some bad eggs. I find it strange that after all the hype over their 1DX that was announced weeks ago, there isn't any high iso sample images. In fact the samples they have posted aren't exactly wow I need one of them camera's. Especially with the release of the D4 and D800 who's sample images are far better even though they too haven't shown high iso ones on the offical site, but shots from the D800 at iso 6400 are out there on blogs. So if the 1DX really lives up to the hype " performance redifined " then what are they afraid of? Also im concerned as to what they are going to do with new 5D, as now there is specualtion of it having an old AF from the 7D or 1DIV, not thats really bad but this is 3year old tech. Nikon have had awesome AF for years now in the D700 ( I know cos I've used one a lot ) and know they have improved it further in the D800. My only fear is that the new Canons need to match the Nikons AF at the very least, as I'm not interested in 14fps and iso 51200 if the shots are OOF then it's all irrelavant. My friend who is a fellow wedding shooter has a D800 on order an I can't wait to give it a try. I dont want to switch because of the money invested in L glass etc but at the end of the day I need a camera I can rely on on the job, I'm sick of taking shots and having that doubt as to whether they are going to be tack sharp. It frustrates me as when I've used a borrowed D700 on on a few of my weddings it was like taking candy from a baby, shooting at 2.8 the dam thing never missed. Come on Canon stop pussy footing about and release some awesome kit, there's thousands of us sat here waiting to spend vast amounts of cash, don't let it go to Nikon!!!

5D III/X on 27th/28th still CR3? Still no press invites / events? Really??

CR Guy, still no leak info about press invites or events?  Isn't it too quiet if the long awaited 5DIII/X is really going to be announced next Monday/Tuesday??   :o

Does anyone else think it's strange that we're less than 100 hours away from the supposed biggest DSLR launch of the year and there is no official press invitation dispersed across the news wires?

When I spoke to Canon a few weeks ago they said it is going to April or maybe even May, at least in Canada. I can't see a spread of several weeks between the releases when Canada and US are so accessible to each other. Given the silence I find this answer to be plausible. When I checked with my retailer he confirmed the delay.

About a week or 2 before 1D X was announced on Oct 18 last year, there were this leaked info about press invites on CR:

Oct 12: http://www.canonrumors.com/2011/10/canon-announcement-in-singapore-october-18-2011/

Oct 9: http://www.canonrumors.com/2011/10/cps-event-on-october-18-in-the-netherlands/

Sep 27: http://www.canonrumors.com/2011/09/october-26-event/

And now there are only 3 calendar days (or 1 business day) before Feb 28.

I bet this CR3 will be downgraded soon to speculate just the specs but not the Feb 28 announcement date.  I hope I am wrong, but the chance is low...   :(

And we shouldn't forget this too:
"There are apparently invites to press events on March 2, 2012. That could be for the coming 5D, or another product."

If there have been no press briefing leaks by tonight then that does seem odd indeed. Uniquely odd. But if it means they are fixing up specs to face the D800 better, then all for the good.

I'd like to think that too, but I doubt it.

If Canon's announcement were planned for next week or even somewhere in first half of April, it means that the 5D3 design is already sealed and that the cameras are already being made at the factory.

If the D800 really caught Canon off guard, they probably had no time to beef up the 5D3 specs.

I just hope that it didn't catch them off guard..
