Well $3500 seems on the high side of estimates and seeing as the D700 was always more expensive I would have hoped the price would have stayed lower.  The D800 is being sold for £2600 (Nikon roadshow) I would have expected the UK price to be closer to £2400.
Time will tell
at todays currency rate its just over 2300 in the uk i have a 5dmk2 and 60d the 60d will be sold to fund this bad boy :D

Agreed, it will be a direct $ - £ conversion, you know all that extra TAX, to justify it. It will come down in price though, if the mkII stays in production for a little longer people will still buy it over the mkIII and save £1.5k

I seriously doubt that this camera will be on the market in rip-off-britain for much less than £3000, possibly even matching the $ price in Sterling...

I am wondering if the current 5d Mk2 will still be continued/supported?  I am guessing that there will be plenty of used 5dMk2 but, for me the 5d Mk2 is my next camera the estimated $3500 is out of my price range.

5D2 special - $1999
5D2 regular - $2399

5D3 regular - $3500

That seems like a BIG jump.
What do you mean by '5D2 special'?

If it is actually announced by the end of February, when do you think it will be available in the shelf? I mean, really available, not only few copies for the lucky ones.. Thanks

It was on sale, a.k.a. special price.  The 5d2 was $1999 CAD at a time when that converted to less than $1999 USD.

When it's on sale.

The price of the 5d2 probably won't come down much so I'll be selling mine off as well as a t2i.
A little sticker shocked but I'll have plenty of time to put money aside.
since they pushed the 1dx back, does that mean that the 5d3 won't be available until after this summer?

The yen is currently about 45-50% stronger than it was when the 5D2 launched.

Google "Hedging"

Not a complete solution here..

What do you mean?

</strong>Below are the specs for the coming 5D replacement, the full name of the camera is currently unknown.</p>
<p><strong>Specs<br />

</strong></p>
<ul>
<li>22mp</li>
<li>61pt AF</li>
<li>100% VF</li>
<li>3.2″ LCD</li>
<li>Dual CF/SD Card Slots</li>
<li>Price: Around $3500 USD</li>
<li>Announcement on February 27 or 28, 2012 (Depending where you are on earth)</li>
</ul>

So, same AF as the 1Dx, including the f/8 limitation? Also, it would be nice of Canon to release cameras and not only announce them...

And I have a feeling that this this camera will be a step up compared to the 5D2

Why would you think otherwise? This camera is 75% expensive from the current model and is competing against $3000 d800.
I'm no expert on prices in the past, but it seems like every time a new model has been launched, the price until now has been very close the model it's replacing.  Therefore it's a little strange to have such a big markup this time around.

$3500 is completely consistent with my expectations given Canon's new push for profit margins. A basic kit of the 5DIII with the new 24-70 II will set you back $3500+$2400=$5900. The 5DII with old 24-70 is $2000+$1270=$3270 or a difference of $2630. You would get sharper images with better AF but at a very substantial cost. If you're only using the 5DII's center AF point and don't have great technique sticking with the older gear would give you enough savings to purchase a lot more camera gear.

The price is higher than I expected too but I think you have to keep several things in mind:

1. Strength of the yen

Well, d700 was launched at $2999. so yen didn't strengthen for Nikon?

Actually, Canon has not even announced anything yet.  So, it's anyone's guess when they will ship it.

Well, d700 was launched at $2999. so yen didn't strengthen for Nikon?

my thoughts exactly.


If my options are
1. sell canon gear and switch to nikon
2. sell 5d2 get 5d3

I guess the $ 300/500 price difference D800/5d3 makes option 2 worse than option 1.

there must be some hidden spec or something that justifies that price.
otherwise, fail.
looks like 5d2 v d700 reversed. (recall, 5d2 outsold d700)
