One Week Away From FEBRUARY 28, 2012.

Exactly only one week away from the [CR3] rumor of the next CANON FF DSLR Announcement. How come everything is still very quiet?

Because Canon was taking lessons from Steve Jobs? Regardless, I just cleared enough space on my Amex to be able to pre-order as soon as it's available.

I hope a Feb 28th announcement is true.  Gives me time to cancel my D800 order if Canon blows me away.   ;D

Can't wait for BIG announcement but hope:
1. Products available within 2-3 months.
2. Reasonable ie  5D3= $3k-3.5K max!!  Anything above I will buy 5D2.
3. More lens announcements.....
5D Mark III/60D (sold) /  24-70mm f2.8L / 16-35mm f2.8L II / 70-200mm f2.8L IS II/ 85mm f1.8/ 580EX II

I wonder if Canon will put the Mark II in the CLP program when the next replacement is announced. At 1599 it would be tough decision (for myself) if the Mark III/X is coming in around 3K.

5D Mark II + 70-200 IS II (After selling 70-200 F/4) or Replacement
5DIII | EOS M | 24-105 F/4L | 100-400 F/4.5-5.6L | 70-200 F/4L | 85 F/1.8 | 50 F/1.4 | 580EXII | 22 F/2 M / 18-55 M | Sigma 105mm OS Macro

I've had my 7D for just over two years and have been waiting to go full frame...was going to purchase a 5D Mk2 but have decided to hold off to see what is announced...

Not counting the 1Dx early announcement...Does anyone know historically what the time difference has actually been from when a camera has been announced to when it's actually shipping?

NDA's, the unknown potential multimonth gap between announcement date and general availability at camera stores?

I'm not in the rush to buy  mrk III , because mrk II is serving me just fine.

However...I'm curios what mrk III has to offer - can't wait to see real spec. ;)
Body: 1DX -- 5D III
Zoom: 24-70L II -- 70-200L f2.8 IS II
Prime: 40mm -- 85L II -- 135L -- 200L f2 IS -- 400L f2.8 IS II

my wish list is simple, a decent flash.
better recycle rate
simple control button (not CFM Hell)
light balancing diffusers would be a nice touch.
built in radio control, game changer...

Are you talking about the new FF camera or a flash? None of the current lineup of Canon FF camera bodies have built in flash.

Now, built in radio trigger - that would be very cool in the new FF body.

I think he meant new flash that was also mentioned in some of latest 5D X/III posts :)
6D (on the way) | 450D | EF 28 f/1.8 USM | EF 40 f/2.8 STM | EF 85 f/1.8 USM | 430 EX II | wishlist: EF 24-70 f/2.8 L II USM, EF 135 f/2 L

Built in radio trigger would be pretty amazing. Bonus points if it's compatible with PocketWizards, or one of the other good quality radio triggers.
