So its looking like we are going to hear more about the Canon 5D mkIII on Friday March 2nd. How excited are you guys about this? Do you think the suggested price of $3500 is going to fly for video people? I guess my thoughts are that it has a lot of proving to do at that price. For $3500 you’re most of the way to an Sony FS100 ($4699 after rebate at the moment). I am definitely looking forward to seeing how the new 5D is going to stack up to what we are seeing now.
Here are some 5D mkIII specs from Canon Rumors:
- 61pt AF
- 100% VF
- 3.2? LCD
- Dual CF/SD Card Slots
- Price: Around $3500 USD
- Announcement on March 2, 2012 (Depending where you are on earth)
