Calumet Focus no longer listing 5D

I hate to (but will) start another thread theorizing whether the 5D MKII is coming at PMA, but I thought it was of interest that the 5D is no longer listed in the bi-monthly catalog that Calumet mails out (arrived at my house today).

For the life of me I can't find the last one I got to see if that has the 5D, but I found it odd that the most recent one doesn't.

I was in the store today and of course they still have new 5Ds for sale today. But .. whatever. Struck me as odd, at least, even for an aging 5D. Unless ...

They are still selling it. However, as I said, the bi-monthly catalog they send out (called Calumet Focus), is no longer featuring the camera. The Canon DSLR section features the 1Ds MkIII, the 1D MkII, and the 40D.

They sell plenty of cameras that they don't feature in the mailer, of course, but it seemed weird to exclude the 5D which is still in a class of it's own in terms of the Canon lineup.

Again, its absence doesn't necessarily mean anything, just an observation.

I think he is talking about what he wrote in his post

he wrote that it wasn't in the catalog that he gets in the mail.
NOT that it isn't online.

Oh well, there goes that theory.

read the original post

this is about a catalog mailed to him.
this is not about a website.

changes to a website can be made immediately.

changes to a catalog can not be made. you have to wait for the next version of the catalog to come out.

Did you notice that the facing page has a Canon ad for the 3 cameras featured by Calumet which also happen to be Canon's newest DSLRs? It might simply be that the cameras listed in the catalog are those corresponding to the ones in the ad which are simply the newest ones.

Yep, I noticed that. Like I said, could mean absolutely nothing.
