Just found out the RRP for the Canon Speedlite 600EX RT, £680......OUCH......But I must admit it does have an awful lot of features such as built in radio trigger & GPS? etc.....I'm sure the guys from EPZ will be filling us in on the details in due course....
Quote: Why not produce to versions one with and the other without the video,it cant be that difficult surely
Tha actual cost of any additional hardware will be mimimal - infact it will cost more to produce two models then 1.
However if the manufactures are charging a premimum for the video functions... then yes, we don't all want them (I find them fun to play with, but they don't add much more value for me than that)
As others have said the price will fall. I baught my 7D in spring 2010, about £1149 if I remember, compare that with the 'announcement' price of £1700.
Quote: I see Canon are also bringing out a new flash as well, the Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT, which apparently is all weatherproof as well as other tweaks, I wonder how much that's going to cost?.......Far too many pennies for me I've no doubt!
Its amazing how whenever Canon brings out new kit, the outgoing model seems to lose all of its weather sealing...
The Mk11 was a huge success with HD video, upgrading to the new Mk111 was always going to incorporate changes to stills and video as the camera has a huge dual market hence the hike in price, Canon wins on both fronts
330 quid for the battery grip. seriously.
Like I said before, the 'Bonkers' people are the one's buying it now at that price thinking it's going to take better images?????
That's why I'm getting the same camera for less. (MkII)
It'll do what I want for £1200 or maybe less now.

It's OK. I searched all over the press releases and it's [apparently] not compulsory to buy one.
It is, however, compulsory for the gearheads to sell their Mark 2 at a stupidly low price to fund buying a Mark 3 - so that I can upgrade from my Mark 1 [only 10,000 actuations when bought] which I got through a similar means for an absolute rock bottom price.
G'wan, you know you all want to..........

If I am selling my MK2 to fund D800, could I sell it at a higher price?
I view the 5D3 as a nice looking camera I'll buy when one of my existing cameras bites the dust. Or I win the lottery. Whichever happens first.
I'm not in the market for a new camera right now
Apart from AF it looks like a small upgrade at a big, big price!
Oh well, I guess it means the price of the Mk II may hold up or even increase... dashing the hopes of millions! Lol!
And I predict those who have gone over to the dark side won't be coming back........................
Personally I'm glad they haven't gone crazy with the specs - the Mk II is a solid camera and an evolution of that seems the way to go. If the last two models are anything to go by, prices will become more sensible over the next six months or so.
Quote: However we have not seen what this camera can do at high ISO
Out of the 'on paper' specs - that's the one I'm most interested in seeing.

Bri has a point, how long before someone in China makes a copy, and how much money will Canon lose because of it?
Hands up all the folk whose all kit consists on "genuine" Canon equipment?.........I know the argument will be "well I'll invalidate my camera warranty if it isn't a genuine Canon accessory" But there is some really good quality generic kit out there and is it really necessary to buy "genuine" when you can buy generic usually for a fraction of the price?........
You have to question not just Canon, but nearly all the leading brands marketing strategies, especially when most of the genuine accessories are made in China and probably the very same factories as the generic kit comes from!
The Mk III version of the 5D is now a full-blown professional video camera and compared to what you would have to pay to get similar quality on a 'proper' camcorder (probably well into 5 figures) could be seen as a bargain. Just looking on the bright side. Lol!
Two stops better high ISO apparently. So presumably the Mk III is as good at ISO 6400 as the Mk II is at 1600.
