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.

WTF, people are talking about shooting themselves over the additional 2 day wait (jokes, but still), everyone wants the camera to be ridiculously cheap, and now you're complaining that it may use different batteries? 
You have to compromise somewhere and accept that there may be a few things about the camera that you won't like....

I dont give a S___ if it's $4000 body only with a battery no one has, I'm still getting 2 of them and I'm not going to complain like a bitch.

Re: It is Canon 5D X

at least kuaddro.com says so:
http://www.kuaddro.com/canon-eos-5dx-name-confirmed/

I don't know how accurate this site is but if there is only going to be one version. And it is going to be called the "5D-X" then so be it. For the reasons listed on that site. As long as we get the rumored "5D3" specs (e.g. 22MP, 61-pt AF, 6.x FPS and high native ISO (e.g. 100-12,800 or better yet...100-51,200 as in the 1D-X).

Hope we get some good news on March 2nd...or the night before (just before midnight).

2nd of March. That's 20 days to go for my birthday. These are great times!!! 8)
BTW I was just privileged to open page #40. So, shall we set up a poll at how much this will add up till the 2nd of March?  :P

@CR: Hope you only had to go back for a reason related to the new tech coming.The day you know the announcement will be huge you might post some gear you gonna offer at second hand rates as a hint, let's say: old 24-70, old 5DMkII even though it's not a lens ;D

Reading the posts in this thread and other links provided I'm convinced the next 5D will be called 5DX, will have 22 mp, pro AF and great image quality both at low ISOs and high ISOs.

Please, tell me with what camera do you have trouble getting quality images at low ISO settings?  I can't think of one camera in Canon's current lineup that produces bad images at low ISOs.

Rather often when lighting conditions are not superb and I shoot at 400 ISO I'm not overwhelmed with the image quality delivered by my 7D. Pictures often have quite high levels of noise and a murky look to them. Since I only shoot RAW I can fix most of these problems in DPP and PS but I would definitely love to get cleaner pictures with more vibrant colours.

I hope they will have the multicontroller on the grip as in the posted images from Kenya. This is a must have feature for me personally. I can't tell you have many time i've cursed my 5d mark ii for not having that. Best way to change the focus point with the grip on and holding the camera in portrait orientation.
Can't wait for March 2nd!

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?)

They will be merging the 5D and 7D lines to get the sporting fuction into a ff sensor

That makes me smile!

I just shot a couple rolls of B&W ISO400, and it felt like digital 3200 or more.
You're offended? Oh, really! Life IS offense -- get used to it.

Yep, sometimes I just laugh and think the average poster here must be a member of the menopause brigade!

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.

Jay S.

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.

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.

someone else already tracked it down, to page 27 of this thread

Honestly, I already saw it and it was just a rumor so whether I repeated it or someone saw the first person who type it hear I didn't see how it mattered anyway and, as I said, just a total rumor anyway, so I didn't feel like wasting even 10 minutes on it myself (and since I thought I had seen it on a different forum it may have taken me a bit longer than 10 minutes to find it  anyway ;D).

but one thing we should keep in mind: the cr-guy is very confident about the date:

"Announcement on February 27 or 28, 2012"
He just changed it into March 2nd  :P

I wonder how solid the 22MP,6.9fps, simplified non-1DX AF rumor is then. Maybe not at all?

I can't tell you have many time i've cursed my 5d mark ii for not having that. Best way to change the focus point with the grip on and holding the camera in portrait orientation.

I also hope the battery grip has a second multicontroller to match the ergonomics of the 1D X.  I'd love to have that feature on my 7D.  It would merely be a nice to have on my 5DII, since the outer AF points aren't very good, I don't select an off-center point too frequently. But hopefully the new 5D will have useful off-center points, to be accessed by the joystick on the grip.
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses
