Screw the 5D-X. I'm waiting for the 5D-X2. I hear it's coming any day now...

If you are happy with the 7D then that is good  8) 8) 8)

I will stick to my series 1  8) 8) 8)

Quote
the AF locks on SOOO much faster.

Irrelevant if the 7D is as fast as you need it to be

When I argued from this point for the 5D2 there was a flurry of activity from the 7D fans who criticised the AF on the 5D2 labelling it disatrous - and I got 30 smites in response.

For BIF/sports etc the AF needs to lock as quick as possible - even my old 1Ds3 out performs the 7D from this point of view. I had 2 7Ds which I used alongside the 1D4 and I wouldn't go back to the simplified AF system on the 7D.

I am hoping that the next 5D has a better AF than the 7D and hopefully as good or better than the 1Ds3. With the series 1 style AF cross-type focusing on all 39 AF points works with the 17-40 and 24-105 which is excellent news considering he popularity of those lens. For studio work the 7D style spot AF might be useful if it could be selected seperately from a normal AF point without changing a Custom function

Other things I would like from the series 1:

- Spot metering linked to the AF points. With 39 AF points it is easier to compose with the AF point where you need it - and get the metering correct at that point

- multispot metering - means tricky objects such as a wedding dress can be exposed correctly

- up to 7 shot bracketing for those difficult light shots/hdr  with +-3 stop with variable AEB amount. Sequence to be done through holding down the shutter whilst in continuous drive mode

absolutely NO mention is made about the sensor' size in the specs.
Could very well be the 7D II.
Anyone think the same?

absolutely NO mention of it being a camera in the specs.   Could very well be a waffle maker.
Anyone think the same?

canadian or belgian?

Just heard a rumor guys, the cr3 spec 5d III/x won't be released in the near future because the pressure from Nikon d800, canon will adjust their spec according to d800 so the 5dIII/x will be delayed!

No link and it's a rumor!

It'll be here soon. I get the impression that CR guy would rather let us wait than spout information that may be incorrect - the crux of the specifications is already with us after all. It's likely he got it from a single highly dependable source that has now become mum. No sense in corroborating from other sources since we're so close.

Though, admittedly, I've been checking CR.com every day for new information.

So not knowing a whole lot more about DR, ISO, etc. I'm debating the 5DmkII (at significantly reduced cost) vs. the mkIII at $3500 for base body.  I've already got a 7D some I've got plenty of speed for action and sports. Wanted full frame primarily for portraits, landscapes, so the 3.5 FPS on 5DmkII doesn't have a negative impact. Metering at focus point might, but again there are lots of ways around that with the 5DmkII.. 

Is anyone (with a 7D) thinking along the same lines (sorry I didn't read all 35 pages)..  Anyone have an holes they can poke in the thought?  I mean the extra $1500 - $1600 can buy and awfully nice full frame 1.4/1.2 lens..

People are speculating that $3500 is with kit lens. Users from other forums seem to have evidence.

Otherwise, we should all trust Canon - if they're pricing it at $3500, it's because they know it's good. Take a look at the 24-70 II. We were all confounded at the high price tag, but we've since learned that the IQ is god-tier from people who have used it. Simply put, Canon seems to know what they're doing. The things we don't know about the MK III could be good things.

evidence? evidence that 3500$ is actually the kit-price?

I'm sorry but I didn't bookmark any links. I was browsing dpreview.com, fredmiranda.com, and here and came across a few who think so.

I'm curious about what kit lens that would be...Plastic Fantastic?  :P

I'm not sure I've seen any posts about a kit lens, and not sure what lens they would throw in that has enough value to raise to a $3500 price tag.  You're not going to put a junk lens in with what has the potential to be a new standard body for many photographers.. That's like the old "putting $29 speakers on a $2000 receiver" analogy.  There may be some combo deals out there, or if the price tag with a kit kens is $3500 and its a decent lens, maybe the body is back down in the more reasonable range.

Hey Jay,

I'm in the same boat. I'd already decided to upgrade to the 5D 4 months ago, so did some reading and decided I'd hang out until the next body was announced. I'm using the 7D to the best of it's ability, and I use it 50/50 for video and pics, so I'm pretty locked on the new body, even at the high price point. Which, from looking at it, would make sense to be with a kit lens. But again, no one knows anything until Canon announce. But guessing is fun....

I also have a 7d and looking to upgrade to FF, but I think the mk iii might be a better option, because, if need be, I can get rid of my 7d and use the 5d mk iii for sports/nature with the higher fps, where the mk ii is not as versatile.
7d, 5d mk iii, 1d4, 1dx, 35mm f1.4L, 70-200mm IS ii USM, 300mm f4 IS USM, 600mm f4l is USM, 400mm f2.8l is usm, 14mm tamron f2.8, 17-40mm f4L, 24-70 f2.8L USM, 85f1.2L USM, 100mm f2.8 macro
