What is meant by: "Dual CF/SD Card Slots"? Both of each  :o? or CF+SD slot? Or not sure: maybe 2 x CF or 2 x SD?  ???

Perfect, I think I know what I'm giving myself for Christmas this year.

Pro AF woot!

All the specs really look great, the only thing that I am a bit upset about is the price -  $3500 seems high for the body only. I was expecting it to be a 20% increase from $2400 for the 5D2 to $2899 (max $3000) for the 5D3.

Let's hope that it's not $3500 body only!

Hopefully the pricing is right.

It seems that canon delivers a great package: Moderately high resolution, great AF system and moderate fps (that is my assumption if I read 3500$ for the body).

O.k., now it's time to decide between crop and full frame ...

Wouldn't be surprised in the slightest at a $3500 body only price. Especially after getting a taster of Canon's new pricing model with the 24-70II.

Oh I hate that crap. I really wanted 2 x CF. I just don't see the point of using 2 formats. I can understand it for peeps upgrading from a cam who have already SD's. Guess I'm turning back to the 1D X...

The yen is currently about 45-50% stronger than it was when the 5D2 launched.  So $3.5K for body only is already a reduced margin for Canon compared to the 5D2 @ launch.  And I have a feeling that this this camera will be a step up compared to the 5D2, comparable to what we saw with the 7D vs. 50D.  Just need the frame rate confirmed (6.9fps?).

To paraphrase the MasterCard commercial: Extra card slot, $100.  Full-coverage viewfinder, $200.  Most of your images properly in focus, priceless.

Speaking for myself, I was willing to pay thousands extra for the 1D X to get top-notch AF.  If I only have to pay $1500, it's a bargain.

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

5D3 regular - $3500

That seems like a BIG jump.
