Canon EOS 3D Rumor

There has been rumor floating around the net lately about the new Canon EOS 3D. One of our readers send us this picture and write that the camera would have 45 AF points with eye control and it’d be filling the gap between the full frame 5D (US$3300) and 1Ds series (US$7150).

Has anybody paid attention to the lens on the “3d” picture? It says 40mm 1.2L.

So, if this picture is real, may be we should wait for a 1:1.25 sensor, or just for a new L lens ?

40mm lens hmmm. sounds like it would be a nice 52mm lens with a 1.3x crop factor as the 3d just may might have…
what do you think?

I’d really doubt that canon would make the new version of the 5d have a 1.3x sensor. The 5d is so popular because it has that full 35mm sensor, I doubt that they would give that up with the next version. At least, i hope not. Because I plan on buying one for that very feature.

The 40mm 1.2 L seems a bit odd. Shouldn’t it be a 50 mm 1.2 L?

I need eos.

Doesn’t it seem stupid that an L lens would be so small? Every L lens, especially at 1.2, would be at 72mm.

I don’t know about the rest of you…but the 3D pic looks like an enhancement of another photo….low resolution, so couldn’t tell if there was any photoshop action.

nice, but!

has anybody noticed, that the 40/1.2 lens has the same dimension (diameter) as the 50/1.4 has? then why hell is the 50/1.2 as big as it is? okay, these are home made PS pics, but should think about that…
anyway I lovethe eye controlled AF system, and the “integrated” vertical grip. CMOS: would be a great idea, if we had the option to chosse between 1.25 or 1.6 crop modes, one for tele and other one for wide.. just another idea:) weather sealing I don’t really care, I’m not that kind of guy who needs that.

Why would the 40 1.2 have a bigger diameter than the 50 1.4? It should actually be the other way around as this simple calculation clearly shows: 40/1.2 = 33.3 and 50/1.4 = 35.7.

I want to buy 3D.Where is it?More more more

Exactly right. The whole reason people have gone crazy over the 5D is that its full frame and for a great price. I wish Nikon would come up with something like that at a competitive price. Once they do, I will jump on it.

Ask and you shall receive…depending on what you consider to be “competitive.”

Man that is a goofy looking camera, and 12mp

2008-10-24 11:50:45

Check out the screen capture for proof. The 5D, XT, and XTi are removed from Canon’s website. Then a few minutes later, there back up, and then down again. something is happening over there.

I would just buy the 5D Mark II

I am working with the 5D and I am very happy. I would say they are both great, but there is a “little” price difference…and that made my decision lot easier :-)

I just bought 5DMKII and I’m very happy with it, but curious about 3D… when would it come out?

2010-04-11 19:20:52

I have Canon 5DMKII and not completely satisfied with its colors. Would be very interested in what Canon 3D has to offer…

I love this camera, although it is my backup equipment.

It would seem to me that the Nikon D800 IS the competition, as the price is very nearly identical to the Canon 5D Mrk III depending on where you look. There would also seem to be no way Canon could price there new high mega pixel camera beyond the D800 price.
