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.
That's guaranteed - the "5D Mk III" spec will have been locked down probably a couple of years ago.

Quote
If the D800 really caught Canon off guard, they probably had no time to beef up the 5D3 specs.
Not "off guard", but in response to all the online whining and caterwauling about "too many megapixels".

Like it or not, this is likely to be the Canon "we've" asked for...

FWIW, it's the one that "I" want.  22MP is fine with me.  I do mostly video so the autofocus isn't my main concern either, although I understand it's important to you guys.

I just want good dynamic range, audio controls, and ISO performance and I'll be happy.

Press invites for Feb 28th and March 2nd

Where are the press invites for Feb 28th and March 2nd?

Why have they not been sent out yet and we are within around 60 hours of the announcement? Normally we get these invites well before.

Just received a Canon invitation, a major Canon event on 2nd of March in Shanghai,China.
It's called IXUS Night Show




P.S. Canon announced 5D mark II in Shanghai on 23rd of September in 2008

How does the IXUS show have anything to do with the 5DX/III or 650D?

Maybe this whole CR3 thing is a bust. NL says they have no official leaks yet.
Maybe they are re-tooling and upping 5D3 specs a bit and waiting until typical August?

Well I'm sure many will agree that this is a bit worrying as its around 2 days to go and no proper invites like Hollywoods C300 have been sent out.

CR gave a CR3 rating for the new 5D on 27/28 Feb yet has been extremely quite since that post on 22 Feb.

Anyone in the know please come forward  :-\

Didn't invites for the C300 event go out a month and a half beforehand?

Agree they're planning to do an EOS Anniversary times  tease/advert /video ?
Still gunning for info and announcement by Focus on starting on the 4th!

It is obviously postponed.

One can only hope it is because they want to give it better features to match the D800, but I doubt it..

it still stands at CR3 so I don't know if you're correct. This is a bit time for CRguy and if its been postponed I am sure that he would change the posting that he made on 22 Feb.

As of now, everyone is a little confused with the CR3 and yet no press invite.

Maybe CR guy is hoping for some kind of miracle?

Canon will not release this camera without a propper and enormous press event. Invitations are usually sent out 3 - 5 days ahead.

So..
