stop complaining about the price... for god sake.
if you don´t have the money buy a rebel.
the camera will have a lot more improvements then what is listed here.
and im sure it´s worth the money.
I don't understand your complaint. People have invested a lot into their systems, and they truly believed that they were going to be able to have a somewhat affordable FF camera, and 3.5k is way out of reach for most people.
Sure we can be a used 5D2, but most people don't want a pre owned camera (lenses are a different story).
I don't think it's fair to say that people need to stop complaining about the price. It is an enormous increase from the previous model. Whether or not it's a smart financial move for Canon is a different story, but I say people have the right to feel a little upset.
exactly. people have expectations about what they are going to buy, and canon should (actually I think it does) realize that (potential) consumers who expected a <3000 price for the new 5d will be upset.
I don't think that price is final.
also to note is that canon gear has high resale value. compared to a world in which canon had low resale value, "our world" makes it cheaper to switch system.
therefore canon cannot price the new 5d3 too high with the D800 at $3000, because if they do, consumers might think that the expense for an upgrade to 5d3 is the same as going for nikon selling everything.
I'll take myself as an example. I currently own 5d2+85L+70200 II.
say that I want to buy a 5d3.
so I sell the 5d2, buy the 5d3, it's going to be what, $2000? seems like a lot.
4K video? never shot any video on my 5d2. maybe it would be useful for marketing. but it's not as big as first DSLR with HD video. video is already there. 4K is incremental. we know it's going to happen.
I guess you didn't watch the video where the canon rep admitted HDMI output was deliberately crippled in 1DX. So if canon does not want to offer even a clean HDMI in their flagship, do you think they would offer 4k in 5D ?
Of course I don't think they are going to put 4K on it. but that's my point.
WHAT is the 5d3 selling for?
WHAT's going to be on all news sites? the nikon d800 had resolution. (example: "OMGZ INTERWEBS NIKON DEIGHTHUNDRED HAS THIRTY-SEVEN 37 MEGAPIXXORS")
