Pressure By the Nikon D600?

Would Canon Drop its 5D3 prices after Nikon will release its rumored Entry Full Frame Camera the D600? I hope so.

To early to comment on a rumour. You realise the Canon 6D will have the 36mps sensor from the 3D but limited to 4fps - but only cost $1500

I'll believe it when I see it. I'm just disappointed with canon not knocking it out of the park with the 5D3 and I'll continue to wait another couple of months to see some more announcements, they'd better nail it against the d600(if the rumors are true)

Oh no - not another person disatisfied with their current kit to the extent of jumping over to Nikon

PS It will be cheaper to buy a 5D3

My sentiments exactly. Nikon has been aggressive this round with their camera body specs and features but in the end, I still prefer Canon glass. Otherwise I would have made the switch years ago. But you have to give Nikon credit, they are doing some amazing work with their bodies "this round". Let's hope it sparks a fire under Canon's arse.

They'd better be willing to buy back my 5D3 at retail if they plan to drop the price of the 5D3...  >:(

canon should drop prices on that body because it is overpriced. not because of nikon.  8)
I think that will happen way before the D600 shows up. There is just no justification for the extra 500 dollars they want to charge.

How about those specs of Nikon D400 ...

http://nikonrumors.com/2012/06/13/some-fresh-nikon-d400-rumors.aspx/#more-40648

Canon must do something very interesting and unique with the 7D2 to keep the pace....

not to mention the epic selection of glass available

This is why, years ago, I also chose Canon.

BUT

Nowadays Nikon and 3rd-party companies are almost there, in many cases they even surpassed L glasses while demanding less money. In my opinion, the only truly unique lenses in Canon's line-up are the 135 f/2 and the 70-300 L.

I'm very disappointed by Canon in terms of pricing. I can accept a lower-performing sensor, a lower-specced camera and everything. I cannot accept that this camera costs more than the better-performing competitors. This is true for lenses as well. This makes me feel milked and almost doomed for my choice of being a Canon user, so..... since I'm not married to Canon, if it turns out that Nikon is able to deliver better results at a much lower price, I'm not thinking about it that much. I'll switch, and I'll do it again in 5 years or so, if by then it's Canon who's providing better performances at a lower price.

There is a Nikon 135 f/2 at about the same price

Yes, but it's a very old lens and not really as good as Canon's ;)

i am on the same boat, i can't afford F2.8 zooms, so the F4 series 70-200 is what making me stay.

but for those who don't buy 2nd hand body, the D600 sounds like a pressure to Canon indeed.

I am sure if Canon simply drop the price on the 5D2, loyal Canon fans will stay.  some people may never want more than 9 pt AF system and will satisfy with an old but still decent metering system.

Competition is always good, we should hope for other manufacture to pressure Canon more as well, at the end, it will benefit the end user.

Dissatisfied? Nah.

Disappointed? Yes, Canon can do better.
