Canon releases are getting expensive!
« on: April 13, 2012, 11:59:55 AM »
Let's see if I have this correct.
The last 4 canon announcements go like this:

1.  1Dc   -  $10,000 or $15,000 not sure which
2.  C500 - $35,000
3.  5D3   -   $3,500
4.  1Dx   -   $6,900


Sure glad to see them aiming their efforts at the 0.01% who can afford this stuff.
They have not announced anything for under $2000 for some time.
I am hoping this means they have a wonderful new 7d or 70d that will be worth switching to.

I think lower price model are coming.  Rest assure.  The pro line was in need and was due for their replacement so no surprise they cost more.  The video segment in particualr seem a bit high, but am sure more affordable cameras will benefit from all these 'expensive' releases...
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

Well...  #1, #2 and #4 are not aimed at consumers.  And #3 is not an entry level camera.

Apparently Nikon has a new Camera announcement on 4/19.  Canon won't be far behind.

Do we know which is is it?  Maybe replacement to the D300?

Agreed, I feel very poor. 

And yes, I realize these are aimed at pros, that is my point, 4 consecutive pro cameras and nothing for the 99.X of us poor souls.

I think more consumer targeted stuff should come in the second half of 2012...

Old 300 2.8 a couple years ago - $3800
Old 300 2.8 - $4500
Nikon 300 2.8 - $5700
New 300 2.8 - $7500

Nikon 200-400 VR - $7000
Canon Vapor 200-400 TC IS - $12000 (ok, yeah the Canon has a cool TC built-in, but $5000 is some TC!)

70-300 IS L - $1550 and they can't even toss in a stinkin' tripod ring or 70-200 2.8-type case (it is a great lens though which nobody else has on offer)

GPS Unit - as much $ as an entire iPad

The new 24-70 II is kinda money too (although the MTF for it look so astonishing compared to the old version that this one might actually justify itself).

The U.S. Secret Service code name for the 1DX is "Casper," as in friendly ghost!
Walter: Were you listening to The Dude's story? Donny: I was bowling. Walter: So you have no frame of reference here, Donny. You're like a child who wanders into the middle of a movie and wants to know...

Yes it will almost a year from announcement to shipping date at the present rate.
Maybe when it ships it will be the 1DXn.  ???
