What confuses me is the IXUS issue....from another thread:

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

Does it make sense for Canon to announce the 5D3 successor on the same day as thy are having a "major event" for the IXUS series?

I don't know....but as I said, I'm getting a bit confused.

I guess the March 2nd date makes sense. Someone mentioned that this March marks the 25th anniversary of the first EOS camera (Canon EOS 650).

Also, 3+2 = 5 (Yeah, we're THAT desperate  :P)

Back and forth between February 28 and March 2. Both dates might be good, but I have 100% confirmed the next 5D for March 2. I'll spend today finding out what, if anything is February 28.

Cheers

There's also invitations to a Canon event in Singapore on 2nd March. Sounds like a global announcement on the same day.

Where is the invite to that announcement in Singapore on the 2nd?

A few of us in Singapore got the event invite from Canon directly.

The email mentioned:

Speed. Quality.
How do these matter to you in the world of imaging?

Is there any word on the battery the new camera will use? There will be a lot of pissed people if they make this camera with a new battery design,  think of all those video people that have banks of batteries.

March 2 will be the date for the 5D replacement.

...Yet it's not sure whether it's called a 5D mk3 or a 5D X?
Also, the word "replacement" is used here - has there been any clarity yet on whether it's going to be a replacement for the 5D mk2 at all? (i.e. the 5D mk2 not being discontinued?)

new japanese regulations regarding batteries will force canon to do what nikon did: new battery designs. expect it. deal with it.

NDA date makes a bit more sense now!
Only a week to go, and maybe a look see at Focus on Sunday :)

Is that for exported goods or just goods for sale in Japan?

In Japan only I think! You still can buy d700 outside Japan. D700 was discontinued in Japan because of the battery issue, but I haven't seen any report of Canon 's products regarding to this issue, so I think canon's batteries are fine with the new regulations

Yes, Nikon can no longer sell the D700 in Japan, but Canon can still sell the 5DII, so the LP-E6 design meets the new safety standards.  The LP-E4 for the 1-series does not, which is why the 1D X will ship with the LP-E4N, but Canon was able to design it so the old LP-E4 will still work in the new 1D X.

I sure hope that Canon will stick with LP-E6 with the new 5D. I'll continue to use my 7D/60D with the new 5D and I have a bunch of LP-E6 batteries.
