5D Mark III & 7D Mark II Within a Month! [CR0]
« on: April 10, 2011, 06:30:12 AM »

Two DPR Rumors in one Week!

[1K1] posted a [DPR] rumor about a 5D Mark III and 7D Mark II being announced within a month.


Enjoy the spelling mistakes. :)


My local dealer, media markt, claims that the new 5d3 and 7d2 will be announced within a month and in the shelves this summer. The sales representative was so sure and convincing that I am selling my 5d2 before the price drops. He claimed the sales team already prepares for the rush of totally 7 new models/updates from Canon and Nikon, and that the new add’s from media markt are being prepared formthis as we speek!


CR’s Take

Not likely. I think I’ll see a 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x before I see a 7D Mark II.


I know of two dealers that have advanced knowledge of some product announcements, and by advanced… I mean about 48 hours.


File this under “grain of salt bigger than a Bentley”

alive and well singing in Vegas this August. So the conspiracy theory proves to be right...;-) BTW: An early fall anncouncement as mentioned earlier on this site (I won't forget the grain of salt either regarding the situation in Japan) would be great. So enjoy your days and fire your frames away with any type of gear available...Regards, Peter in Switzerland

That sentence alone would have made me rank this rumor CR0.

I would never trust a Media Markt sales clerk for anything...

Well, Media Markt is part of a quite a large store chain, something in the ballpark of Best Buy. But information trickeling down through the franchising relations, management and logistics to the common photo aisle guy? :)
Perhaps something along the lines of "supply is running low" + "last time that happend the new models showed up"...

I'm glad this has been demoted to [CR0].

Sounds more like an April fool!

Perhaps a category represented by an icon of a steaming pile of horse manure?

1. Media Markt is a large retail chain selling all over Europe, based in Germany, specialising on consumer goods, mainly in the medium to lower quality range. Main sales argument is cheapest price.
mediamarkt.de/angebot/digitalkamera_camcorder/

2. Due to the low price market approach many (but probably not all!) sales persons have not enjoyed a thorough training in photography.

3. As Media Markt advertisements usually react very quick to market changes. I would doubt that the advertisements are being prepared many weeks in advance.

4. I assume that Canon goes to the press with news about a new camera several weeks or even months before you can buy them in the shops. If you look at the latest L lenses the delay can last up to several months.

Summary: Probability of this rumour seemsto be pretty low from my point of view.

Maybe those guys have not watched the news from Japan lately.

I literally can't wait for this camera to come out. I'm loving the suspense, the anticipation, the surety that I'll be disappointed in some ways and blown away in others.

I'll be pre-ordering this camera, pretty much no matter what. I wonder what the delay will be between me sending that order in and actually receiving it? I've seen other cameras take several months to ship to people when they were released.

Having never peeked through a FF body before (and I'm not going to until the day I unbox this thing), it's gonna be rapturous for me. First lens on will be my 135L. First subject will be my wife or dog, whoever is being cuter that day.

I talked with a guy who works at the carwash yesterday. He's top wipe there and said he personally handles the car of the Canon USA Marketing VP. He said the VP told him the exact date the 5D Mark III will be available for purchase here in the U.S.

Unfortunately, this car wash guy wants me to pay him $1000 for the information. Well, I'm saving my money for the actual camera.

If anyone wants this information, send me the $1000, and I'll get it for you from this car wash guy!



Disclaimer: This is satire and not a solicitation for funds. If you'd like to send me $1000 just to be nice, I'll appreciate it, even report it as income, but I'm not offering anything in return.
