Pre Orderprices for the newest Canon professional camera.

From http://www.dpreview.com

Preview based on a pre-production EOS 5D Mark II

Back in August 2005 Canon 'defined a new DSLR category' (their words) with the EOS 5D. Unlike any previous 'full frame' sensor camera, the 5D was the first with a compact body (i.e. not having an integral vertical grip) and has since then proved to be very popular, perhaps because if you wanted a full frame DSLR to use with your Canon lenses and you didn't want the chunky EOS-1D style body then the EOS 5D has been your only choice. Three years on and two competitors have turned up in the shape of the Nikon D700 and Sony DSLR-A900, and Canon clearly believes it's time for a refresh.

So here is the 5D Mark II, which punches high in terms of both resolution and features, headlining: 21 megapixels, 1080p video, 3.0" VGA LCD, Live view, higher capacity battery. In other words, a camera that aims to leapfrog both its direct rivals, either in terms of resolution (in the case of the D700) or features (in the case of the DSLR-A900). Full detail below.

It'll get voted cold because of the price and that fact that 99% of people on the forum have absolutely no idea of the quality of these cameras. Great price for a stunning camera - if you're into that sort of thing.
Jessops are charging £2,299 for the body, £3,049 for the kit.....
#2
I'd sort of resigned myself to that already - but having seen the other deal on here (from Dabs) I realised that this is about as good a price as you'll see for this at the moment. So worth posting especailly as they dont feature on [url]www.camerapricebuster.co.uk[/url]
#3
voted hot. Good price for what should be a fantastic piece of kit!
#4
Hot from me too but..

You seem to have posted something that does not cost £9.99 and which isn't the same price it is everywhere else so.. this will end up freezing.
#5
Voted hot and rep left - great price for this camera. I'm seriously tempted at this price.
#6
Hot from me :) Great camera....... I want one! I already have a 24-105L so it's body only for me.
#7
Thanks for posting this despite the possibility of negative votes. It doesn't hurt anyone to post something even though it is only of interest to a small number of people. At least everyone has a chance to see it and make up their own mind. Cold votes are a waste of time anyway.
#8
Cold!

Like this camera is like super good like, and stuff..
http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.12865

its wicked, like a 10000% cheaper, and takes AAA batteries so better innit?

.. waits...

btw the Canon 5D MK II looking better than the Canon 1d atm :) I won't be surprised if cannon release an updated 1d :)
#10
Nice bit of kit. Expensive though. Suppose It might be worth haggling or just run away fast.
#11
and for those wondering why some of us are excited about the 5D mkII then here's one reason.

This video has been shot only using the new HD video ability of the 5D http://vincentlaforet.smugmug.com/gallery/6042742_wZKiA#377930419_dgxvY-A-LB

as much as i wouldn't use the 5D for video, i currently use the original 5D for weddings and it's just a delightful, full frame camera. This update has pretty much made the 5D into the daddy :)

Let the Nikon vs Canon debate begin :)
#12
It's one of those where I so wish I could! Great camera, good price.

Heat & rep
#13
Ive just bought a Nikon D40 and im going to stick with it for a long time. It has an auto mode!

Great deal though, well above my price range. Come again? 21Megapixels ?? Piece of cake. Check this one out:

hope it helps in picking a holiday camera
banned#14
Hot! Its good to know that the retailers arn't sticking to the RRP of £2200 otherwise we'd feel ripped off knowing that the US is selling it for $2700.
#15
man this site is costing me a fortune!!!

I'm in the market for a DSLR at the moment. I was looking at the 40D deals that are being posted, but then seeing the 50D, I was tempted to wait for those to come down in price a bit, but now this... am seriously tempted.

Voted HOT.

LOL .... just remind me, would you be looking for a Ferrari or, maybe, a moped?
#17
if I had the money I would buy this. Maybe I should sell my hd camcorder & all my other camera kit!
#18
Anyone who buys this in '08 must be mad or a Pro who is making money from it.

Otherwise, come spring 2009 you will see a reasonable drop in the price.

What I have found interesting is that Everyone from jessops to warehouse express has this listed as a pre-order price, but Canon UKs Website haven't actually published the price.

£1800 or anywhere abouts is still the best about a the moment though :thumbsup:

By god I am tempted :-D
#19
Nikon FTW.

That is all.

As for the haters - come on, just because you aren't buying it, it doesn't mean that someone else isn't and wouldn't like to save a few quid.

i did find it on expansys a couple of weeks ago for £1800 but now they have pre-order at £2k so yeah it'll be interesting to see where it goes
#21
Wait til Feb, go to FOCUS at the NEC and get it for about £1700 from Jacobs (if you get there early on the first day)
#22
still learning on my 40d. maybe next year for me... then again, maybe not. Credit Crunch.
#23
Have just spoken to RGB-Tech.

They are expecting 10 cameras in early December.

They already have over 250 people register interest in this product.

Also enquired about the 50D to which I was told that they are getting about 5 in a week from Canon, and if I wanted one I'd have to wait until after Christmas unless I was willing to pay a £500 premium.
#24
Be interesting to see what you will be able to pick up a 5D MK1 for in the new year, that is a hell of a camera if it drops under £1000
#25
Why is this showing as expired? The price is still current as far as I can see.

you can get a 5D MK1 from Canon Outlet on eBay for sub £1000.

Dunno if that helps?

pointless camera for the non professinal.

Nothing wrong with it for the non-professional.

Some people like the finer things and if you can afford it, there's notthing wrong with this camera.

Actually not true, the real selling point to any camera buff Pro or Non Pro is the full frame sensor, I am by no means Pro but I do consider myself to know a great deal about photography and how to use a SLR.

I bought a 350D when they first came out, and learnt how to use it. I was fortunate enough to spend time with a borrowed 5D MK1 and really saw the benefits of the additional features and the full frame sensor. When I had saved enough for a MK1 I realised with some research that it was due for a revision, so my natural progression would be go for the newer MK2.

The other reason for a non-pro to buy Pro equipment is that if you have the best tools you can't blame them for shoddy results, it gives you a different perspective in your learning curve and you know if something isn't right it's probably your fault and you strive to learn a bit more without making excuses.
