Surprise surprise CanonRumors changes the date.

Then there will be a delay, and it will be pushed back to late April early May, which will turn into mid may then it will be Fall, followed by a November announcement of a new Rebel, which they predicated all along. Stuff writes itself.

There is a mixup of two separate launch events. Stop being over cynical.

We all should know by now that there will be no 5Dx/iii, and there never will be. Stop falling for every little unsourced rumor you read on the internet.

No different from the trolls on canonrumors dolling out their usual fodder of misinformation and speculation.

I think a lot of folks were expecting something to happen today but nothing did. It is a little disappointing. Today would have been an ideal 5DIII announcement date before D800 ships out. That way those canon users who were on the brink of switching brands, could have made a more delicate decision, now I can see them jumping ship.

This thing about rumors (rumours) is that they are nothing more than, uh, rumors (rumours).

cedrec, if their were no pictures, I would say you are right.

But we have 3 that are confirmed real, and 3 more that look very real. NOW, it maybe May, June or later when we can get our hands on one, but it is coming soon

Canon Rumors itself seems to be a rumor right now...
In reply to bradleyg5, Feb 27, 2012

I can't even get it to come up. Still I don't get the negativity from the OP, it is, after all, as so many have pointed out... a rumor. We may not hear anything at all. Canon seems much better at keeping secrets than Nikon.

Friday is a strange day for a Canon announcement -- it would usually be today (Monday/Tuesday). I guess Friday means Thursday evening on the west coast.

Have you ever seen those pictures of concept cars? The Google car that drives itself? Fuel cell cars and other devices meant for testing? Pictures of UFOs and bigfoot? Pictures of the Loch Ness Monster?

Pictures prove nothing aside from the fact that there was somebody who made them. As we're on a photography forum, I'd expect this to be common knowledge.

Seriously, if people are spring-loaded to jump ship because Nikon released something a few weeks before Canon, I think you need a new hobby. Poker, maybe. That way you can have a new hand of cards every few minutes. Or chatroulette.

Seriously, the 5DII you (generally speaking) were ecstatic over a few weeks ago is still going to work. It's still going do it's job helping you take great photos, and the image quality isn't suddenly going to decrease by a few MP.

Step back, put down the credit card, a wait a few more weeks or months.

Sheesh...
