Invites have gone out to Canon Platinum CPS members to prioritize purchases of the new EOS-1D X. This is most likely the CPS event we've been told about.
For the launch of the Canon EOS-1D X, Canon would like to offer priority purchase for CPS Platinum members, as our most valued customers, we want to ensure we continue to add value to the CPS program where we can.
Not on February 7 [CR3]
There will not be a 5D Mark III or similar announced on February 7, 2012. It is suggested the “embargo” lift on the 7th may be for samples from the EOS-1D X.
Another 24-70 f/2.8L II mention came my way. It will be announced with a DSLR.
More to come.
