It's on great authority that March 2 is the announcement date. Unless, they decide to out it tonight because everyone has seen it already.

This happened with the 7D launch, we had pretty much everything out. However, they still held it to the planned release date and added "as anticipated Canon is pleased to announce" (or something like that) to the beginning of the press release.

Its working though - the anticipation is killing so many people...

This images looks like the real deal guys! :D

Have a look at the second pic michaelrcruz has shown us, there are apparently 6 labels for the ports. The upper right port seems like a headphone jack to me.  What do you guys think?

Upper left seems to say MIC, but if anything top right would be a USB port... although it doesnt look like one at all.... come to that... where IS the USB port?

Seems like Canon seals the leak pretty tight this time... :-\

I have to say I'm a little disappointed. Canon still don't have a built-in eyepiece cover for the 5D line like the Nikon D700 - making you use that shitty little rubber eyepiece cover that might be attached to your neck strap, if you use a neck strap.

First chink the armor.

GRRRRRRR!!!!!

I'm not sure there is much thinking going on in this thread...

I mean we all know canon create multiple prototypes. These pictures could be of any number of prototypes and don't "debunk" the 5DX name at all. Not one iota.

Can someone identify the lens on the 1DX? Great photos!

Yes, it is the 85mm f1,2L II. But i was wondering first, too. It looks unfamiliar from this angle.

Gracias; I think you are right (holding mine at that angle as we speak).  I'd never seen it at that angle I guess, ha.  I knew it had to be something relatively fast given that big front element.   Thanks again.

Thanks, Westbild and Isurus!
