I get all of my rumors from www.canonrumors.com Of course I won't hold them to it. At least it gives me an estimated time. 5D3 probably will be 3rd or 4th quarter. Canon already patented the new 24-70. You can see the spec and design info on that link above.
Oh, so you say. I'll hope they release it earlier! So I can't get my hands on a cheap 5D MKii by 2012!
24-70mm? The one they have right now is already expensive. I can't afford anything that goes above 1,500 dollars. However, I can handhold it at 1/20 without any shake (rifleman's hold / machine gun hold). It's all about technique! I bet the new 24-70mm would cost 500 dollars more.
The 24-70 mkii, might be $300 to $500 over the mki. However, I might wait for a Canon Rebate to buy it. Having the New IS helps for 4 clicks/stops at low night situation. I certainly can use the IS for better chances of tack sharp images. It certainly wouldn't hurt. Nevertheless, I can still shoot with the primes that we have without getting the 24-70mm.
I saw your prime kit lol. Yeah, you can easily afford the MKII IS! But then again... why do you need IS if you have lenses with the same focal length with enormously bigger apertures... just my two cents
Well, there are three of us into photography. My two bigger brothers and I. They got me into it not too long ago. The two brother are in charge mainly buying prime because they are professional. They put me in charge of buying zoom lenses. I certainly don't mind because we can trade/use each other lenses if we buy different lenses between the three of us.
