Hello all,

It looks like Canon is not the only one planning an entry level FF camera:

I'm curious, maybe I missed it, but where is the link to a rumor for a Canon low cost FF body.

Nikon's pushing hard.  Gotta love competition!  Now if they could only deliver their products :)  I look around quite a bit on NR and there are quite a few people upset about not receiving d800s yet.

It wouldn't surprise me at all. There have been lots of rumors here about the same thing for a long time. I would think it'd be in Canon's best interest to strike first and make it good. They certainly created room for one by moving the 5D up to $3500.

We're still waiting on the 1Dx to ship, period.

Just like many are upset about still not receiving their 1DX which has been on preorder since since fall 2011?   ::) Latest info says that it has been pushed back (again) to june. Perhaps even longer.

By the way, I think the only reason to why there are so many 5D3's in stock is because most 5D2 owners has decided to keep their camera.

I am seeing a huge opportunity for Nikon's entry FF.

They could make their D600 with the same specs as the 5D3. It would steal minimal sales from the D800, but a whole lot of sales from Canon.

I'm curious, maybe I missed it, but where is the link to a rumor for a Canon low cost FF body.

I don't know if there were any rumours, but certainly people here were calling for a nice cheap entry-level FF (and at the time I jokingly said "crappy AF, low fps, rip out features like in-built flash to make it cheaper, and you've got a 5Dmk2".
Seems I was right when Canon announced the 5D3 and said that the 5D2 would drop in price to be their "entry level" dslr (that's still 2nd-most expensive currently-available camera they make).

Nikon can't just do that to their D700, too much of a gap from 12-36MP, but more importantly they can't sell it in Japan for whatever battery-related reason. I don't see why they can't just redesign the D700 with a new battery and call it the D701 or whatever, I haven't read that link so maybe that's what they're doing (or are they going to bollocks the features to worse than D700 standard?)

In stock? Where? My order with B&H is back-ordered, and they are still trying to fill orders from March from what I hear...

While I'm waiting for the D800 to arrive from somebody, I did get the Canon 5d3 from Adorama fairly quickly (less than a month). Perhaps being overpriced has some advantage.  Now if they could just figure out how to get the vertical grip delivered (I hear this Month?).

Actually the only reason I bought the 5D3 was that I was really waiting for what I call the 2DX.  A full frame camera with 44 mpx, 2 digilogic 6 processors, USB 3, uncompressed HDMI out for digital recorders and field monitors, 1D style with the vertical grip built-in for around $4,500 (maybe $5,000).  I think 6 fps is sufficient and of course the 1dX autofocus that the 5d3 already has.

I guess they could call it the 4DX.  I at first thought it would be called the 3DX but then I realized that calling anything as the 3D anything might be misleading....  Unless they actually build a .....

Third most expensive

- 1D4
- 5DIII
- 5DII

Just a minor point

Canon can't ship all 5D3s to B&H.

Maybe you should try finding a store that has them rather than relying on B&H.
