My guess would be that canons arrogance with feature set will get the

It's nothing about arrogance, it's all about cost cutting. canon
knows what people care most, and they work well on that, and cut all
the other corners they can think of. They don't build the best
camera, they make the best money out of any single camera.

OTOH, in the interview when asked why they hadn't done this or that, they basically said we felt no pressure from nikon for so long what do we need to do anything for, we are the best.

Canon still sells a lot of "old" 5D's although someone said that "production had stopped." (though this may have been an overstatement to support his theory of imminent release of the "new" 5D)

I'm glad I went ahead and got mine, that's for sure; otherwise I would have missed a year (so far) of great pictures.

I think the OP is already "stoned".

He needs to "unstone" himself, and THEN take another look at that "new" 5D. \;-D

I agree with you. I do have RSP, but new camera's are not supported. So I use lightroom. These days Lightroom 2 Beta is available. Like it too. You can try that.

Re: I think the OP is already "stoned".

I am Going to see one of the 2 Canon suppliers in person on Saturday,

I cannot get any further information out of either of them over the phone, but they assure me supply at the end of August!
if I can get something maybe then I can be "unstoned"

Re: I think the OP is already "stoned".

I went to Panda Express for lunch. I opened the fortune cookie. The fortune read "Canon says new 5D in August". I once won $60 from the lotto using the numbers from a fortune cookie. They must be right.

As soon as the new 5D is announced the old ones will start to show up on ebay for around $1100-1500 depending on the condition. Great deal for a full frame camera.

Re: NEW 5D available in August!

Can't be August since July is almost over and no self respecting pro camera builder would ever bring anything to market that quickly. Need more time to build salivating zombies, stir up impatient people, get recently switched Nikon users to doubt their decisions, and lastly build up inventory. Had they been building up iinventory all this time someone would have said something... Now October or November with an actual December delivery date would be much better in terms of building up anticipation and desire.

It's a knockoff (nowadays those Chinese manufacturers no longer bother to wait until the real product shows up ...

If so, this could become an interesting source of FF cameras. Maybe even a new forum...
