I'm usually a generation behind.  Just got a 5DII in December for $1,900.  Will probably get the 5DIII when the 5DIV is released.  Canon's price hikes are killing me.  I don't have enough money to justify getting the newest stuff, there is more important stuff going on in my life.  Would I if I had enough money?  Hell yeah...

I'm guessing most folks here... if the 5d3 turns out to be fantastic, will own one eventually, long before the technology is obsolite or even uninteresting :)

If it has the 61 pt AF and other goodies rumored then I will get one within six months of release. That is assuming the body isn't over $3000. If it is then I will wait until the price drops or is on sale.

So what are you selling exactly?  There aren't many other reasons that a normal person would have that laying around the house..

AWESOME!!!!! Right on!

Coming from the 5DMark 11 & ready to upgrade I have a lot of interest in both the Nikon 800 and the Canon 1DX even though its a completely different beast. Like everyone I have heard the rumours of a 22 MP 5D Mark111 spec up but doubt it will do enough at that level to gain my interest. I will be watching but more keen for a quality 36 MP model. Bring it on Canon Nikon has made the challenge!

Take care man !!!  Iphone photo contains EXIF which, by default, has GPS coordinates and people can get a lot of info from internet nowadays .
Btw, with $170k you can buy just a camping tent where I live.

well if 3500 is bo price then that is a bit out of my budget
would have pulled the trigger at 27-2800 but looks like i'm going to get the mII , which I am still completely excited about coming from a Xti
happy for the people that will be able to get it - this sounds like my ideal camera to be honest

It does raise suspicions when the country which was first to place a man on the moon and the only to rover Mars can't seem to count integers well enough to have a cofident voting capacity

well the nasa and lockheed martin had it´s math issues too....   ;)

At this point, I feel Nikon D800 is a much better choice. Canon needs to go back to the drawing board.

I may buy a D800 with couple of lenses at this time.
