Looks good to me (on paper), but we'll see what the reviews say. For me personally, this camera does what I (personally) will need it for.

It makes me wonder why they even released a 24-70L II without IS. If the existing 24-70 I was good enough for the old 5d2 and this one is only a slight bump in MP and the 1DX is actually less than the 5D2, why a new lens where the primary improvement is the resolving power?

Looks about right to me if only for the price, I'd buy one as soon as I could.

Since I mainly do portraits, I'll wait and see how it all pans out. My 5D2 is already better than I am; I can't justify the 5D3 when I have no need for the autofocus. If I need the faster/better AF, I pick up my 7D.

At $3,500 it makes more sense for me to have a 7D and a 5Dmk2 over this beast. It is just a bit more money and it gives me the flexibility of having the best of both worlds (tech and full frame) in certain situations.

Ditto. I'm picking up a 5d2 this morning. On the other hand, the AF from the 5d3 leaves a little to be desired. I look forward to some solid reviews.

I see no reason to upgrade...like others said 5DII version 1.5...not even 2.0 IMO

Good news as I can use another 5D2 :-) with lower price.

and at $3500...give me a break...I think I'll just draw a line on my body making my own III if I fel like an upgrade.

And, since I'm low on coffee intake...if you can't do "it" with a MKII and MKIII isn't going to help.

was just looking at the specs, did I read that right, 102K ISO?? Crap i've been out of the camera loop for a while. I remember when getting 6400 ISO was a big deal.

The ISO at 6400 is pretty terrible though, let alone 102K

Exceeded my expectations 40 9.20%
About right 168 38.62%
Disappointed 53 12.18%
Overpriced regardless 174 40.00%

Thats just about right !
Those who say ...
1. Exceeded expectations are Canonites Gearheads programed and modeled in Canon upgrade ways
2. About right are Canonites who come to expect small incremental tech steps at high cost
3. Disappointed are Canonites and Nikonians who are weary of the upgrade con and know better
4. Overpriced are Canonites and Nikonians who see the light in the darkness

Looks to be about right to me, but hasn't changed my plans to keep my three month old MkII for landscape/portrait and purchase a 7D for wildlife/sports.

I'm sorry but it just doesn't have that 500MPs. I'm gonna build my own perfect DSLR!

JUST KIDDING.
It's what I expected. I was kinda hoping for more fps, but whatever. Expensive? Yeah, but I'm not rushing out to order it right now. I'm gonna wait at least a year before I make a decision (if I feel I really need to upgrade from a crop to full frame body). I can be patient and see how it does in terms of performance. I'm hoping it has really good AF (with freakin' 61pts) and image quality.

I've only been in DSLR photography for a couple of years and I've spent that time slowly refining my system and lens choices to where I'm pretty happy where I am now. I DON'T "NEED" a full frame, but I'd "LIKE" one. The specs on it don't make me wanna jump over to Nikon either (I just don't wanna spend the time learning another system). Plus, I'm not printing poster-sized images, so 22mp is just fine for me (I do well enough with 18 right now anyway).


I am in this boat. Just got a 7D since it meets my current needs more. If I get desperate for a FF, 5D2 it is for now. In a couple of years, who knows.
