Are we there yet?  :D

Would the existing 7D users sell off your current 7D's after you buy the 5D3, if the AF of 5D3 can match the 7D?

No. Assuming Canon will not include a crop image format like Nikon does with their DX mode (which I'm pretty sure they've never done before) I would still like to have the extra reach the crop sensor affords. Now if they did include a "APS-C mode" with at least 10MP selling my 7D would be a very tempting option... also assuming that the 7ish fps rumour pans out too.

Can't agree more. The main reason for the cropped camera is the extra reach for most people and a DX mode would solve this problem. If Canon chooses to price the mark III at $3500 as rumored, that may price out alot of people from getting 2 bodies and they would either keep the 7D or a mark II for backup. $3500 is almost double the price of a new mark II which is why I think the price will likely be under $3000

dont forget the rumours that they are keeping mark II for awhile in the market, so i think markIII will be pricey!

An APS-C mode would be great not sure how an EF-S lens mount would work if at all.  I'm still keeping my 7D as a back up.

I would suspect that the DOF preview button is located here and assignable like the 7D.

this is the 60D right?

Correct. Press invites should have been sent out today or yesterday, but still nothing..

And I wonder where Michael Cruz went off to? He said that he was going to post more stuff, but now hes gone.

If you had a Canon 1Dx AND a Canon 5DMkIII would you be browsing a forum?.....
Neither would I!    ;D

I think he said he had a shoot today and hes in Dubai so is updates may not fall on everyones browsing schedule..... cant wait for anymore updates though!

Has this every happened in the history of EOS that no one knows about the press invite or has seen the marketing poster invite (Eg. C300 Hollywood) less than 60 hours away from supposed (CR3) announcement?

No. The 7D is a great second camera. I plan on keeping my 7D for a long long time.

During the exposure, the reflex mirror (the 'R' in dSLR) is flipped up and completely blocks light entering the viewfinder from reaching the sensor. If your camera is leaking light during long exposures, you should send it to Canon Service, because light leakage sufficient to affect an image directly means a defective camera.

No, not quite. Normally the mirror blocks enough light from the viewfinder, so that it is not seen in the picture. But if you use a filter like ND 3.0 or IR 720, which lets only 1/1000 of the light pass, the light from behind can be clearly seen in the pic, even with a non-defect-cam (on an IR-image it looks blue).

A lamp from behind during a long exposure can have a similar effect.

And btw. a viewfinder-cover is also usefull, when you do timelapse with exposure-metering...

While I agree the reach is an important aspect and a crop format would be very helpful, I don't think it's the main reason. I think most people buy a crop sensor camera because it's cheaper. If you can afford both and then you choose the crop camera, sure, but most people would buy FF if they could, IMO.

The 5D3, on the specs, is one of the long awaited bodies that fulfills our requests as professionals.
Even the 1D X it's not that perfect due to its price.
The 5D had for each generation something innovatory. The 5D was the first low price FF. The 5D2 was the video DSLR that turned the world up side down. The 5D3 is not that innovatory maybe but it will be what photographers demanded for a long time.
Cross my fingers for the price.
I've already passed 24-70 to "at this price, no thank you" so a 5D3 hope to be the chosen.

Maybe the new "innovation" will be wireless transmission to your speed light or the new speed light coming out so off camera speed light(s) can be triggered from the camera w/o the use of pocket wizards and the like.  I do not think any camera has this as yet and last year I was talking to a photographer who uses the Canon's ST-E2 transmitter who said that that piece of equipment might become extinct when the Mark III eventually came out.
Happy owner of the 5D Mark III, 24-105 f/4L and other L lenses
