You know Canon probably have a few people dedicated in getting general feedback regarding their products watching internet forums blow up and speculation and hypothetical dates and such and they are sitting there just laughing their butts off. I'm all in for this new product but until i see white paper on this product, I'm not getting hysterical yet.
Maybe CR Guy is not publishing any specs because while testing it in Ecuador, he sees, that specs from rumors are not worth a thing? I assume he can't write anything what he's testing but what comes to his mailbox, he possibly could.
1. CR Guy does not get advance information or test cameras from Canon.
2. He does get a lot of e-mailed rumors from peopole he does not know, and are just passing on something they read about. These people are not in the know either.
3. There is a third group, that have provided reliable information in the past, and may have access to information about new bodies. He is extremely careful to protect these sources, and does not post anything that might identify them, if he does, they may lose their job.
4. Mose CR3 rumors come from dealers or other reliable web sites that accidentally show information before they are supposed to. These sources get shut down quickly, and do not get info in the future. Do not expect CR3 info until someone gets careless and lets a web page go live.
