Canon 5D Mark III to Officially Launch on March 2, 2012 0

Well, it seems that the first predicted Feb 27/28 launch date of the Canon 5D Mark III was pretty off the mark, and the March 2nd prediction is now inevitable. Anyway, what’s a day or two of waiting, right? With Canon recently distributing official invites for a March 2, 2012 event, it’s now or never.

I’m already excited for what Canon will bring to the table against the Nikon D800. How about you, what are you expecting from this upcoming Canon event?
