Dude... I do too....

I totally work with a group of trained assassin photographers from the future. I've traveled back in time because it's getting close to the time of the release of the camera that changed life as we know it.

It began simple, the 5dMKIII was released just as you are saying. People used it and fell in love. They sold all of their current gear and invested all of the money into the 5DMKIII. This was easy, since with the 5dMKIII came the first ever Canon Multi Lens, the only lens that could adapt itself to every use and possible situation, from f/.001 to f/7000 depending on available light, and it would transform from a 1mm lens to 5000mm lens with the flick of a switch.

However, the lens testing was not completed thoroughly enough, as mating this intelligent lens with the Canon 5dMKIII's quad Digic VI processors allowed the lens and camera to combine into one semi-living, self-aware, sentient being.

The lens and camera combo started to absorb the users, until just a few of us were left. We were the ones who were happy with our 7d's and didn't early-adopt the 5dMKIII. Unfortunately, we were pushed to the caves in order to survive.

After some time, we managed to get one of the 5dMKIII creatures to absorb a 7d that was on a wired remote. Using the wired remote, we were able to travel through time by setting a multiple exposure sequence into the 5dMKIII's circuitry.

A small group of us managed to come back to warn you... don't buy into the 5dMKIII ... .it'll only result in the destruction of the world as you know it.... It'll be fine at first, but starting with Firmware Update 1.2.93, things will change.

:lol::lol::lol:

Ok

Glad you had fun. I trust my source and i know the buyer for the company. They would not have put the SKU's in their system and made the preperations they did if it was a BS rumor. Should be announced at the germany show, or so im told. Guess we will see.

Oh, and i dont get the check your site thing either ??

Later gents

This is a cynical lot. Just kick back, Umph, and if you're right you can laugh up your sleeve at these fellows. I've been following the rumors embarrassingly closely, and there is a lot of stuff that points to October (as it pointed at May and August...). I'm ready to order mine. Hope you are right!!

The Germans are saying no replacement for the 5DMKII this year.


Audiophil published on their website:
Wir garantieren...
dass in diesen Jahr kein Nachfolger der Canon EOS 5DMkII auf den Markt kommt.
Ansonsten nehmen wir die Kamera zum vollen Kaufpreis zurück!!

For those who do not speak or understand German, it says:
We guarantee… that into this year no successor Canon EOS 5DMkII comes on the market. Otherwise we take the camera back to the full purchase price!!

Well, the 5D3 may not be released... but doesn't mean it couldn't be announced. :lol: Sneaky Audiophil folks.

How many people are thinking of freezing themselves in ice to make the wait a lot easier to handle?

The 5dmk3 has produced the most blue balls ever. :lol:

I for one believe the "announcement" of a 5D MkIII and the rumours are true this time around.... anytime now they will "announce" it and release it in all likely hood Q1 of 2012.

Thanks for the insight, Mike. My local camera store owner was being pretty hush-hush about answering my questions for the 5D3 while chuckling... I am pretty sure a few retailers know a thing or two about the 5D3 and roughly when to expect it. The big give away for me was that he doesn't plan on brining anymore stock of the 5D2 in store once the current one sells out... he's going to only bring in already sold (ordered and paid for upfront) ones only.

While I have a hard time believing Canon would release the 5D MkIII before the 1Ds MkIV in October there are only two possibilities for the October announcement... both will be launched at the same time or Canon is planning merger/new creation of camera lines and they will be announced.


Again just my thoughts.

I look at it this way; rumors are worth what you pay for them.. Nothing.

Haha milhouse's dad


Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.

I bet there is an announcement. Canon is WAY overdue for a replacement.... They need to catch up and pass Nikon.
