thats dissapointing, i was hoping for an 70D or a cheap FF replacement of 5D 2, since 5D III is overrated for me.

anyway i think they wont release anything before nikon does
if nikon releases a cheap FF d600, canon will reply (somewhere in the present)

however, canon hasn't replied with a 36megapixel class camera such as nikons d800

nikon has the lead in tech no doubt
canon just follows :(

damn, i miss the time canon released the 5D mark 2 where nikon lost her sleep.

damn marketing tricks :(
Bodies: 5D3 + 600D

well i think it´s pretty clear what i want?!

i want a FF with a better AF then the 5D MK2 ... something the new camera sure will have.
and im willing to give up some build quality for it.
I think that's what most people hope for.
5D II sensor, 7D auto focus, I could even live with the 60D body as long as it has a joystick for AF selection. The 5D II is still a capable camera, it's just that the auto focus is straight from hell, even the new 650D is better.

So I've sold my 1Ds III while it still gives good money (awesome cam, just too big and heavy for frequent traveling) and hope for a 6D or whatever they call it. If it's not gonna happen at Photokina, 5D III will be the only choice (on the other hand, that retails new at the equivalent of 2700 € here in Switzerland, so I can't complain, that's 10% less than the rest of Europe) and makes it even more interesting what Nikon shows up with.

First you all complain of new higher prices, then complain when there is nothing new to buy.

I'd love to see an ultra compact powershot with a fast prime, like 28mm f1.4, but that's probably never gonna happen

We should be getting leaks in two or three days, as more and more people become aware of the details.  It is true that new lens announcements are kept quiter than announcements for bodies, just not as many leaks.

Disappointed? Yes.
Surprised? No.

On a separate note - this kind of tech stuff takes time to develop and clearly manufacturers have a certain road map/schedule marketing and production wise for relaese of larger items - like dslrs and glass. So why do they never announce their plans? Why this type of announcements is always kept secret till the last moment? I mean - if they are planning to release a FF entry body say in December - why not tell us about this now? This could stop a number of folks jumping ship to Nikon this September. Is this beacuse they fear competition? But I doubt they (or competition) can suddenly decide to use a larger sensor or a more upscale AF system simply because this type of stuff gets announced now and is planned to be in production in 2-3 months... I donno much about this stuff, so i'm curious.

I want the leaks now! I'm so on the fence about a 5d3 or 5d2! Give me something new canon please!

Well, Canon this year had some problems with delays in the release of a number of items. Or did they :o ? Even the 650D which was on time had problems with the grip. We should all agree that it'd be better if products announced were released pronto, like the 60Da (just trying to find one   ??? ). Think it's better for everyone and saves tons of bile worldwide. Sure Canon must have acknowledged that. I for one had my share in the bile dept but I must admit that it's a waste. There's so much we can do with what we already have, don't we ?

5th September,
I like the latest update, lots of new toys to be announced next week before Photokina.

For me the one I'll be looking out for will be the next Powershot G model. As the the Powershot with a brighter lens, wasn't that hinted at before the last two Powershots were introduced? ƒ1.8 or ƒ1.9 lens? 

The only problem wil be whether it will be another carrot to dangle in front of us like the EOS M announced a month ago but not available until late October, will the next PS Gxx be announced next week but only available in time for xmas?

I was (and still am) hopping for a "6D" as many people here.

If nothing comes, I'm left with 2 options:
1- 5diii: a too expensive and a bit overkill (for me) body and no glass
2- or 5dii: a 3 year old body (which is fine apart from the outdated AF)+ 1-2 good glass

Putting it like this, it would be logical to go with option 2. But I must admit that I'm no better than the regular consumer:
I want something new!!
I guess I'm just as brainwashed as many others and find it very difficult to buy a 3 year old body (for new, if I was buying used, it would be another story)

a G12 replacement I’m told is likely, as well as a new fast lens PowerShot.
Does this mean the G12 replacement won't have fast lense but we will have to choose between a G12 replacement (with all G12 capacities: tilting screen, optical viewfinder...) OR another camera with fast lense?

crazy Canon!!!

Personally, I'm waiting for less expensive than 5DmIII FF camera to replace my already second 7D body and... EF 35mm f1.4 L II. Why not?

Once everybody who is annoyed by the lack of a 430ex2 successor finally bought the expensive 600rt to have the future-proof tech - I'm sure the delay is there to get as much revenue as possible, and once the 600rt sales drop a little the 440ex will be there.
