Uuups... I really don't get it:
The Mk. II was THE video machine, missing basically only one important feature: Articuated screen... and what do I see in these images?


...

What do you think: Live view w/o this feature is close to useless and video is much the ssame, don't you think so?

I made up a quick side by side comparison. The Mark III has a very similar and familiar button layout to the 7D.

It is nice to see them side by side. But you have a wring photo of the back of the mark 2, your photo is of the original 5D.

The first on the second line is a 5D1 ... missing AF-ON button.

Funny story. I've never had ANYTHING to complain about the Mark II. In fact it's the best camera I own.

Great, I MEAN GREAT IMAGE QUALITY;
never had much problem with AF, you just have to learn how to use it;
battery life is great;
LCD is great;
body is built like a rock;
great viewfinder;
video is GREAT for what it is... (and I run two webshows based on it)

So I don't see much of a point upgrading to the Mark III.
Most stablished 35mm photographers that I know and own a half-life Mark II agrees with me.
Can't see this being a big hit.

Great to hear you're still enjoying your MkII - I only recently upgraded myself (Dec.'11) and think I'll let the dust settle on the MkIII before considering it. The MkII is still an awesome camera, I too come from a 35mm background, and have to agree with you. And the AF is good imho - I mean it has AF! I do still like turning that focus ring myself mind you... (bad) habit?

The reason some people are dissatisfied with the 5D is because they shoot wildlife, weddings, sports, photojournalism.  All of these demand many AF points, and at times fast frame rate.  Not all types of photography require these two things.  But if you make a living shooting these subjects, then you need these features.
Pair this with the fact that Nikon's competitor to the 5D has a faster frame rate (with grip) and many more AF points.  Also Canon's next cheapest camera the 7D is packed with features, but is only a crop sensor.  It's tough knowing that you can pay a similar price or less to have these features.

Also there is the issue that the 5D has arguably the best image quality from Canon's line.  On the other hand, the 1D and 1Ds have a top level features, where the 5D lacks severely.  Now you end up having to choose high quality image vs. high level features.

That's my $1  (my opinion is worth more than two cents)

Just preordered mine, price is definitely $3499, they already had an SKU for it.  I was 4th on the list, which is crazy considering it hasn't even been announced yet.

Showcase Inc in Atlanta, probably the biggest Canon dealer in GA.  They are one of the 17 dealers getting the C300.

If the price is confirmed to be $3499 then how much will the kit be? Is there more than 1 kit?

If they offer the 24-70 MkII as a kit option I would imagine $4999 (at least). If they offer the 24-105 Mk1 then $4299. Both of these are WAG's from me though...
