The camera in his hands seems to be too big to "only" be a Rebel in my opinion

I was looking on the Northlight rumor site.  They claim that a dealer was quoted as saying the price will come out at $3250 Euros.  That translates to $4,372.55 US dollars.  I REALLY hope that is not true as that is a HUGE price jump from the MKII release.  If it is, sign me up for a MKII and maybe I'll get a used MKIII in 4 years.

Camera prices don't translate according to exchange rates like that.

Not trying to be a negative nancy, but this invite looks kind of lack luster compared to the invite for other recent invites for big items--the C300 invite comes to mind.  If this is for 5diii you'd think canon would want to pump up the volume a little bit... ?? maybe breakfast is a huge deal in italy?  thoughts?

Remember the slow leak of the 5D2 on official Canon pages as the moon slowly, slowly lit up the body image more and more. And Friday is a weird date. But maybe they wanted to just go for the quick surprise or to not have the slow release build expectations too high up?

Try writing "Canon EOS 5D Mark III" in Google translate, and then translate from Italian to English (see attached file).

Spooky ;)

haha

That's good to know, I thought they translated in terms of price.  As the US price seemed really high.  I am starting to get the feeling that is will be $3500 + but maybe that's me just thinking a MKIII is too good to be true and I won't get my hands on one.

An Eos breakfast also in Paris?
http://www.kuaddro.com/petit-dejeuner-eos-in-paris-march-2/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=petit-dejeuner-eos-in-paris-march-2



"release does not mention more than a brief ‚ÄĚpetit-dejuner EOS"

Maybe, if it does relate to the 5D3 at all it's just a brief little mini-teaser and the real announcement will come later on? Maybe just enough to hold people off from the rush to the D800 while they work on adding more to the 5D3, just to let us know that something will arrive eventually?? Either that or they have very much changed how they go about major, non-Rebel EOS DSLR releases (of course this is certainly possible).

I can't imagine them holding events like this all over the world for a consumer camera (t4i).  We haven't seen any consumers get invites to these, and why would you invite a bunch of pros to see the next big consumer camera?  Also, we've seen the T2i, T3i, 60D, and 7D since the last 5D, a T4i on that date would mean 5 APS-C cams in-between the 5DII and 5DIII, just doesn't seem right. 

Plus, the 25th anniversary of EOS is a big deal to them, I'm sure they want to release a product that's a big deal as well.  Honestly, I don't think it's out of the question that they could release BOTH the t4i and 5DIII on that day.  That would give the pros something to look forward to as well as the consumers, and everyone is happy.

Maybe the 25th anniversary is why they are going about it in a different fashion this time. Everything is different because it will be a bigger, not a lesser, deal.

Would they even need/want a celebrity to endorse a prosumer camera?



Because those are the models that sell the most and I don't think pros care who presents it (well, maybe if it were Kate Beckinsale).

It can't be a rebel. NO WAY!

Has Canon ever advertised a rebel together with a big fat L lens?

Didn't they introduce the 70-300 L as a nice lens for the beginner on a budget?  ;D  (And I'm not actually kidding.)
