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!

You can't just make a statement like this and not provide more info other than "no link and it's a rumor!"  where did you just hear a rumor.  Is it wild speculation from some post in a forum or from a reasonably reliable blog?
Happy owner of the 5D Mark III, 24-105 f/4L and other L lenses

just a guess, but, I can't see them using anything less than the  24-105 f4L as the 'kit' lens.  If we assume that the kit L lens will be bundled for an extra $800, that would mean the body price would be $2700 (assuming the $3500 price tag is both accurate and with lens).  I don't know, something in me says $2700 would be too low, $2900, or the silly 2999 tag may be applied (lol, it looks less than 3000, lol, its silly but there is a rule of 5's and 9's in pricing for a reason!) - so kit would then fall in at $3700, or, they could take a loss on the 24-105 and boom, looks like a great deal!!!  With all the mkii lenses now, the 24-105 may very well get an update soon, so tossing a serious discount on it may in the end just be a way to clear inventory. 

As with all this stuff though, who the hell knows!!!!

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

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.

The current 24-105 kit is about $800 more than the body alone so that would equal a price of $2700 which does not seem impossible to me.

Bit of a long shot but perhaps the rumorued 40mm 2.8 pancake? the new 18-135mm is likely going to be a kit with the 650D and the pancake was rumoured along side it.

Seems very unlikely to me, the Nikon specs have been known almost definately for 3-4 months and 36 megapixels has been strongly rumoured since last summer.

Maybe someone would jump on stage and shout "Yo Canon, I'm really happy for you and I'mma let you finish but the Nikon D800E is the best prosumer camera of all time.... OF ALL TIME"    ;)

On a slightly different note:

Nikon: 16 Megapixels is “More Than Enough” for a Camera

That was before the D800 was announced, naturally. ::)

hah, wow

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?

how fast does it make them (unencumbered)?

I doubt it, but I'd be glad. If they need to spec it up, then do it and delay us 4-6 months rather than try to get us to spend $3000 for some lame update we have to use until 2015.

The rumor I saw was $3800 Canadian with kit lens. I don't have the link. Some of the forums have no msg body search and I don't want to spend an hour tracking it down. I spent 5 minutes and couldn't find it again quickly.

another interesting detail: do you guys think the new 5d will be available right after the announcement or in a few month? i saw a information about a NDA which ends on monday. and if that means the journalists already have their test units then the new 5d might be ready for sale.

what do you think?

I'm on the european part of the earth. does that mean 27th or 28th of feb?

In the past they would often be in stores 3-4 weeks after the announcement, although it seems to be taking longer with each release. I believe the 5D2 took three months to hit stores.

I'm on the English part of Planet Earth.... It means that just as I am waking up, my colleagues in Australia are going to bed. It's a damn nuisance. But the good news for the 5DX is that the 28th of February starts (at midnight usually...) around midday on the 27th in England. Japan is 8 hours ahead of England, so if the announcement is (say) 7am, then this would be 11pm on the 27th in England. But it could be earlier or later.

Obviously it depends on where you are, and what time the announcement goes live. CR guy probably knows more about the timing these things usually are, but he seems to have disappeared the last couple of days...

Canadian Canon Vendors had a meeting today (Feb 23).  The new 5D will be available in stores at the end of March 2012  in Canada at $3,800 with a lense (do not know which one).
Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.

Or stockists have been getting (NDA'd) news fromeetibgs with Canon, but can't yet share. 
As CR does rental business, I'd imagine he's got to evaluate the new kit from a rental, a personal, and the canonrumors.com (p)review angle. Beyond any personal stuff.
