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


I do recall reading a rumor regarding a late summer/Photokinaish announcement of an entry level FF from Canon. If I am not mistaken, it was just a line under one of the 5d MkIII news... I have not been able to locate the link though. Maybe CR can help?

Cheers!

Edit: I was mistaken - here it is:

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.


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

I second that!

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.

Well that would certainly soice things up a bit.  Or even use their 'old' 24MP sensor from the D3x!!!  I think they will give Canon a run for their money...
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

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 .....

Calling it the 10000X would be more appropriate given the price point a camera with those specs would likely come in at.

interesting. it sounds exactly the kind of thing Nikon would do. An affordable full frame when canon just made theirs 1K more expensive is a very very good strategy. specially if they crank the fps to 5-6, keep it to 16-24 MP and priced around 2K.

The Nikon full frame lineup looks could look like this:

D600 (low end, $2K, ~20MP 6fps)
D800 (mid end, $3k, 36.3MP 4fps)
D4 (high end, $6k, 16MP, 11fps)
D4X (high end, $8K? 52MP, 4fps)* assuming they scale up the  24MP D3200 sensor. The D800 has a scaled up D7000 sensor.

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.


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...


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.

 
Here is a list of In Stock Stores!

Oh Darn, no body has them.

Where are these in stock bodies?  Is this just another Troll?  I guess you can buy one on ebay from a gray market dealer for a big markup.  Canon has two factories pumping them out at a much faster rate than Nikon, and still can't keep them in stock.

I'm not gonna lie... $2000 for a full frame with decent autofocus would be nice...  The only problem... I've been down the Nikon road and didn't like the experience.  Maybe Canon will follow suit.  Or maybe I'll just save for the 5d3.  I wonder how true this rumor is.

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).

Third most expensive

- 1D4
- 5DIII
- 5DII

Just a minor point

1D4 is still available?
*buys*

It certainly is in the UK - saw one last week which I was mighty tempted by, but had just bought a 200 f/2 so by strong will power I walked on by.

Some more rumors on D600

The price of the D600 is rumored to be very low - maybe as low as $1500.
The sensor inside the D600 will probably be 24MP (made by Sony, modified by Nikon).
The D600 will probably not have an internal AF motor, which means it will work only with AF-S lenses (just like the D3200 and D5100).
The D600 will have HD video.
Announcement before Photokina (September 2012).
One or more low-priced f/4 lenses will be announced with the D600. For example, Nikon recently filed a patent for a 24-70mm f/3.5-4.5 full frame lens which seems to be designed for a cheaper FX DSLR body.

I just love Nikon's no internal AF motor strategy, screwdriver power!  ;D

I don't want to hijack this thread, but just a thought on d800 vs. 5dmkiii - sales figures anyway.  People are getting all worked up about the d800 outselling the 5dmkiii.  Has anyone thought that maybe one reason could  have not that much to do with the 5dmkiii itself.  It could be that the d800 was a huge leap from the d700, whereas the 5dmkiii is not that large of a leap from the 5dmkii (no new features, just upgraded older ones).  That has nothing to do with how the 5dmkiii and the d800 compare to each other, just the Nikon was behind the times with the d700 and the upgraders were waiting for features like video and so forth.

Well, i'd guess that D700+D80 sales figures are still probably well behind 5D2+5D3, more because the 5D2 was so popular at least. I don't think the 5D3 is selling badly, it's unavailable where it's affordable (like the US), it's everywhere in Aus where you have to pay $4100 for it though.

But add in sales figures for a potential D600+D700+D800 vs 5D2+5D3, if it actually happens, in a year or so, maybe this is what they're doing to redress the balance...

how was Nikon D700 behind the times? what camera today can deliver 8FPS full frame with a 51pt af system for less than 2200 dollars? If that's behind the times, man what is the canon going to do!!! If anything I always respected that camera for it was doing in 2008 what canon still hasn't done in 2012. The only weakness was lack of video, and that IF you cared.
 
no sir, the NikonD800 is selling because it is the camera many of us wanted the 5DmkIII to be. That's why I ditched my canon gear for it. Many switchers are going elsewhere for resolution. It is 2012 and Canon stuck with 22MP bodies when Nikon has entry level cameras with 24MP simply explains a lot of why the NikonD800 is tracking so high on amazon relative to other full frame bodies.

I'll keep an eye on the 5Dmk4 in 2016. But until then, and after using the D800 for two straight weeks, I'm just not going back  8)

This D600 intrigues me. It would be prefect for a backup body if the price of 1500 dollars is true. But I was thinking of a backup D700 instead. It's such bargain and outruns even the MKIII by 2FPS.
