This is exciting ehehe ;D


What marked me in those pics before was the photographer wearing a Ricoh GR scarf, which could be odd if the guy is Canon staff and this is a PR photo op. Same goes for the Sigma lens on those new pictures. (ok, that could be on purpose to "prove" that it isn't a PR move...in this case i would applause !! ;D)


The lens pictured on the 1DX is NOT a Sigma, it is the Canon 85Lii at a rather strange angle so you can't see the red ring. I have this lens so was able to do a comparison and am sure of this ;)

That was so 14 pages ago!

Sorry, couldn't help it.  I hate those stupid commercials.

How's this for a consipiracy theory.  Canon intentionally leaks the photos and "release" date knowing they will stir the blogosphere into a wild feeding frenzy.  Then when the sharks are circling in for the kill, they clamp down really hard to seal off any more info getting out and let the "release" date pass with no announcement.  One week goes by, two week, maybe a month.  By then, all credibility in CR as a reliable source of Canon product information has been uterly destroyed.  Canon can now continue to operate securely in to the future knowing that anything that comes out on CR, regardlss of confidence level, will be completely dismissed out of hand.  (I don't really believe any of that.  Just thought I would throw a little blood in the water  ;))

Or they just feed announcement dates a week off here and a spec 1 fps off there and use disinformation to slowly weed out all the leakers one by one.

I would think that the power of a pending lawsuit is enough to quiet anyone up.  I would be too scared to divulge open information like that.  If I were his friend, I would be furious.  I loved seeing the pics though. Thank you!  I hope that your user id wasn't your real name, and that the discussion of your location was really just a cover up.  It is interesting that the left side of the camera was never shown.  Could it have something there that even you didn't want to give away?  Also there were no mention of any specs.  Just photos?  Maybe this was an inside job?  I hope so.  Thanks for the info and good luck!

Based on pics like this, how could Canon track who it was? (unless there's just 1 pair of 1dx/5diii's in Dubai)

I would think not many 5D3 are out there, so there very, very, very well might be just one in Dubai, unless maybe there is some event there where they sent a whole bunch to test it at once and that is why the guy was not afraid to leak a photo or two.

Although perhaps Canon told the guy to leak a couple shots and it was under their orders.

Then again maybe the guy 'accidentally' fell off a balcony last night. This is the most likely scenario by far.

The pop up flash is nice in those situations when you need a touch of fill and don't have a 580 nearby.

So originally 1DX was going to be available in March now it is delayed to end of April for the UK (how about US?):

I hope 5DM3 is not delayed also.

Lesson learnt? Check with someone before you break their NDA, or at least make the sneak peek pics anonymous?

Hopefully Canon sees this as what it is - a good leak that helps buildup of publicity and anticipation :)
As mentione - there hadn't been a takedown

I'm not sure what I was talking about with pending lawsuits and all that.  No way could you get in trouble for this kind of thing.  In fact I want to encourage everyone under NDA to break their silence.

...Hey a crack heads got to do what a crack head's got to do...  Now give me some more photos and specs.

There is way too much silence. We got couple of pictures of the camera and direct contact with someone using it 3 days before the release and now complete silence. I am seriously beginning to doubt a Friday release unless the chatter picks up. The cameras are definitely out there but typically the Canon police would not be cutting out the chatter this close to the announcement. I remember alot of cameras that had full spec sheets leaked out by this time. If a announcement was still a month or more away, there would be a good reason for Canon to want to keep everyones lips tight

How many 5d3 do you think there are in Dubai?

i doubt more then 3-4.

Well Gulf Photo Plus starts on Friday.  They pay pros alot to be there, so I would guess more than a few top flight Canonites are there

brimming with excitement!!!!!
I have been DYING to upgrade from my Xti to FF - I am not a pro by any stretch. but I do love this hobby, and if the MIII comes in south of  $3K I would love to pick one up, if not then I will definitley pull the trigger on the crappy MII ::)
A couple of my buds have the 7D whivh they LOOVE and are pushing me to get that instead of the mII,
I dont shoot action very often, and I'm  of the opinion that I would rather a FF than a better AF system - after all I am used to the Xti AF, although not the latest and greatest I have taken some nice shots with L glass on this camera.

So for an avid amateur whose action shots are a definite low percentage of overall subjects to shoot, does my rationale make sense?

PS Whatever camera I get I will definitly keep for a number of years (secretly I still like my lil Xti :o)

IMO your rationale definitely makes sense. While the 7D is a nice camera, the image quality of the MII is a different beast altogether. If you don't need the better AF, then the MII would be the way to go.

I was at a workshop a few years ago with a Sports Illustrated photog whose favourite camera was the 5D Mark I... Go figure.

I've used both cameras extensively and absolutely prefer the MII vs the 7D. If you've got the glass, it's the right choice.

That is what it does. But I was suggesting a custom option where pressing it would toggle the preview on and the aperture would stay stepped down until you pressed the button again.

But for  what use? To always have a dark and unusable viewfinder?
But to be honest, I can live quite well without the DOF-preview. For me it's a nice feature for beginners, but if you have photographed a little, you'll know how it'll look (approximately).
But perhaps that just my fault having learned in the middle-ages where pictures still were analog ...

Even in the good ole analog days DOF preview was available and useful for the same reasons it is today. 

The DOF preview button on Canon DSLRs has been in a very awkward place on the left side of the camera body.  Improved ergonomics are always welcome, and the array of buttons on the right front of the 1DX likely include such an improvement.   Hopefully this will trickle down to the 5D3!!!
