Is the 5DX/III really being announced on 27/28 Feb?

Is the 5DX/III really being announced on 27/28 Feb? There has been little real evidence such as leaks/press invites etc. We're just some hours away from the proposed date and things seem a little quiet  :o

Your views would be much appreciated.

Leaks abound now, and we have a CR3 rumor, which is likely 95% correct.  Its 4+ days till Feb 28, so the level of info is following its normal pattern.  There will be more over the weekend.

http://www.canonrumors.com/2012/02/the-next-5d-on-february-2728-2012-cr3/

Canon is not like Nikon, they hold info very closely with only a very few peopoe knowing all the facts.  However, they send out press releases two or three days before the event and then the leaks begin.  Some reviewers have prototypes in hand, but they have signed NDA's (Non disclosure Agreements) and would lose the ability to get advance info is they let info slip.

Its definitely coming, and its CR3!

The details should be public by next weekend.

Here's to hoping they'll have a model on the Canon stand at Focus in 8 days.

Put another way - if something wasn't happening, wouldn't Canon want to be putting out some rumors to modify the consensus that it's imminent, rather than confirm its near announcement with stockists in meetings?

well we're 2-3 days away from the announcement and most the noise that we're hearing is coming from people speculating etc. I think what will reassure all of us is some concrete news about the speculated 5D3.

Where is the press announcement from Canon?

The details should be public 4 days after the announcement? I'd hope for them to be public during the announcement.

Is there something that I'm missing?

There's some announcement that's supposed to be happening on the 27/28, but the NDA's are up to 2 March - which would point to another announcement on 1st March.
So the 27/28th Feb is aligned as a EOS anniversary announcement, with NDAs beyond that event.

Slightly paradoxical currently, but it'll make sense within a week.

Apparently not all views are appreciated, Ramon.

As I suggested once I won't be standing by the wireless waiting for word from Canon.

Local weather is forecast to be sunny and uncommonly warm. I may go to Atlantic City and see what faces on the boardwalk come before my lenses.

CR Guy seems still optimistic about the CR3 rating of this launch next week:

Has anyone mentioned actually getting an official invite for 27/28 yet? They had to have been sent out before now.

Like Mt Spokane said.  Canon is very tight lipped!  Not too many leaks.  I'm glad we just have a CR3 confirmation.  You will something before March 2nd for sure.  I'm REALLY looking forward to the detailed spec list and price(hopefully below $3500).

Looks like we now know the answer to this question!

The world of rumors can be so heartbreaking.
