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

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...

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 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.

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.

does that means the rest of the world have to wait longer? or can we expect a worldwide start at the same day?

CR Guy has still been active on his FB page though for the past couple hours.  And he sounds like he's still optimistic about the launch of 5D III/X next week!   :) :) :)

"...

Keenan ThePhotographer Adams (8 hours ago): Also, when the 5D Mark III/X drops next week, can you go on podcast with that one dude again?? Im sure you guys could talk for an hour.

Canon Rumors (8 hours ago): ‎Keenan It's booked and ready to go later in the week.

Let's just assume that Canon is on time with the 5D3/X announcement. That we will hear something in the next few days.

As long as they give us what we want. A high MP (45 MP) for that crowd. And a "Low" MP 22MP high native ISO 5D3 for the rest of us. I'll be happy and will be playing my order for a 5D3. I think we've done enough speculating of whether or not we're going to hear something at the start of the work week.

There was a comment on facebook that he had to return home early from Ecuador.

That might have something to do with it.

You don't return home from an international destination for trivial reasons.

This then lends credibility to the possibility that the body only could be between $2200 and $2500 mark (AUD) if its bundled with the "kit" 24-105mm f4.

That sounds much more reasonable
Yes, i shoot video on a DSLR.

As posted in another thread here, check this out:

http://www.clubsnap.com/forums/canon/1050868-something-exciting-coming-canon-singapore-2nd-march.html

They mention speed, perhaps a hint about the burst speed?

Command find on a Mac, or whatever Windows has these days.  Or the Google search bar will open the option to search the page in iOS.  Might take 10 minutes to search all (as of now) 37 pages.

I demand that Canon makes the 5DX Mark III as capable as this sensor video-wise  :P

NHK's new Super Hi-Vision sensor captures 8K at 120fps, fast enough for Usain Bolt?

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?
Just received a Canon invitation, a major Canon event on 2nd of March in Shanghai,China.
It's called IXUS Night Show

I believe we haven't seen any invitation regards to the CR3 spec 5d which only two days left to be announced.

 
P.S. Canon announced 5D mark II in Shanghai on 23rd of September in 2008
