p.3 #1 · p.3 #1 · 3D coming?

Be prepared for a price jump with the announcement of the successor of the 5DII.


Agreed....From my original post....

"They can improve a number of things that people have been complaining about for years, but they can still get away with charging a huge premium for it by just renaming it the 3D."

and...

"The pricing problem Canon has is the precedence they've established with two prior releases of a 5 series, so I think if Canon does release a 3 series (with optional grip), they will take the opportunity to increase the price to the $4k-$5k level. This strategy makes sense, especially when you see what other vendors are doing (Canon's value proposition has deceased significantly) and in light of the high-priced 1Dx."


I fully expect a huge price increase in whatever they call it. Canon is not here to provide us with great equipment at "reasonable" prices. they are here to sell us what they want to sell us at the maximum amount they can charge. What that is depends on market conditions/forces, but in no case do they want to give us something exceptional/great for a small sum.

Canon will most likely build in the 30% they've lost in currency exchange rates, and also an additional buffer (e.g, a base of $3-$3.5k + 30% + buffer (?) = approximately $4000 to $5,000 USP (US Pesos). A 3d/[whatever] at that level, buoyed by a 5d2 (or similar) at $2k, and topped by a 1Dx at $6800 gives them a spread.

I think it's going to be:

7D MkII = $2k
5D MkIII = $3k
3D = $4k
1D MkIV = $5+k
1Dx = $6+k

Of course, I honestly still don't believe that my 3D is in the works yet:

Give us a 5d2 that focuses properly with less shutter lag and more FPS and less banding and call it whatever you want, 5d3, 3d, 1232334d I dont care, I will be happy.

3k is gonna be a tough sell for a 5d model unless they seriously address some of our chief complaints (focus issues, speed, banding), 2k is pushing it for a 7d model.

Unless a big improvement in sensor tech (more mpx and less noise) the current 7D is pretty up to date.
