Wow.. really suprised how many people are okay with the pricing o__O

They can't keep this price imho... It is way way way too much.. In Germany usually Dollar = Euro..  :(

e.g. the new 24-70 has a RRP with 2299 EUR - Same as in America in USD..

Street Price should be ~20% lower... which means a 5DMIII is at 2800 to 3000 EUR... At the moment you can already preorder a Nikon D800 for about 2650,- EUR... A 5DMII atm is at 1700,- EUR

Canon is really freaking out if they want a 3500$ RRP Price O___O

Sounds great.   I'm a bit surprised regarding the dual card slots, but the rest is pretty much what I was hoping for.  I just hope the high ISO performance will be as good as I hope,  but there is no question - I'll be preordering as soon as I am allowed to.

So....when will the 5Dmk4 rumors start showing up  ;)

CR guy thanks for the CR3, +1 to you....  Very disappointed with the price here myself...  :-[

+1 to Canartist for his comment on the Yen not affected Nikon only affected Canon? Since when did Canon start becoming elitist and charging premiums... I guess  since it started copying Nikon. So is Nikon the next Canon?

I really hope the price is closer to USD $2700-$2800....

The $3500 makes sense in terms of features compared to the rest of canon's lineup.

But it makes absolutely no sense compared to D800.

I want to know about ISO performance and DR.

A little disapointed at the price, I was really hopping to spend a max of 3,000. I'll have to wait and see what the reviews say (and think of a way to explain the price to the misses).

Time to start praying for the Yen to rally against the dollar..............

Hmmm... not thrilled with the CF+SD card slots... would prefer 2 of either... I guess maybe if you could have raw files sent to 1 and jpegs sent to the SD?  Still grasping at straws on how that could be helpful.  Price seems steep but I suppose it's the price of technology...  As neuro said, getting all the photos in focus would be priceless, but I hope they sneak in a few extras that the 7d has to make it worth our while...  now i need to explain the increase in price to my wife... great...  :P

I was really excited for this camera until I saw the price.
Dual memory cards is something I need and I would have paid $2900 for those new specs, but for $3500 it's going to need to have weather sealing and a few more stops of DR for me to reconsider.

We are talking launch price, so of course it's going to be a bit hefty. The original 5d2 released in USA was priced at $2699. When the 7d came out at $1699+ people were whining it was overpriced even though it had an improved AF system for a crop body.

Given the possible improvements that were mentioned like 100% VF, iso stop improvement by 1-2?, improved fps?, dual card slots, improvement in weather seals? a price range between $2999-3699 for the body is fair and I believe justified when given the addition of a better AF system.

A little disappointed in the price level, but not surprised with the price of the new 24-70.
FWIW:
New 20D Oct. 2005......$1829
New 5D   Jan. 2007......$2789
New 5D2 Apr. 2009......$2699
New 7D  Mar. 2011......$1499

Notice the 5D Classic at $2789, back in 07! Not too surprised at all for the New 5.
But this might just decide for me to go with another 5D2 and hand the 7D down to my daughter. Undecided.

The only thing I can see the dual CF/SD cards useful for is, I can shoot raw to the CF and then jpegs to SD, and use a eye-fi card. I get the raws for my use, and directly upload the jpegs to the web for my family to pick through.

Curious about FPS/buffer when using both cards. I assume it will go down.

Agreed. And how many of us have said all along that we would be happy to part with extra cash if Canon even only sort out the AF?

I'm always amused by the fact that as buyers, we often think we're being ripped off by the vendors. And yet probably everyone on this forum works for a company (even their own), which sells something, be it a product or a service. How many of us complain to our company that we might be slightly over-egging our position / price point?

Every year, we expect our companies to pay us a bonus and a pay hike, no doubt Canon employees expect the same. Is Canon any different in terms of it's pricing? It basically prices it's products at whatever it thinks it can get away with. I'm sure the companies we all work for, do similarly....

A combination of market forces and economic recovery may help to reduce the price in time. Early adopters always pay a premium. I just upgraded my PC to Sandy Bridge, having skipped the previous gen, and expecting to skip the next gen in H2. Sure I could have waited for Ivy bridge to knock down pricing further, but it hit my price point, and I bought.

If you want to upgrade when it is first released, you'll have to pay the premium. Those looking at the 1Dx may however be looking at a bargain.... :D interesting times.

If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

Launch price doesn't change that much until there's enough products in the used market to compensate... The 7D held its $1699 for a good year and a half... It was just last 12 months or so the 5D2 dropped from it's $2600 launch price...  Lenses prices have increased over the last few years... If your waiting on price drops, you'll be waiting a while
