17th September?

I already got a comment yesterday, suggesting a press conference on 17th, but now the news about 17th september 5D mkII announcement is all over the photo forums and sites.

There are also some rumours about the price; 2600 EUR. For a camera with 21 or even 24 mpix with 1080p video capture, that would really be a bargain. It would be even cheaper than Sony A900, which has no video mode and besides that there are numerous heated Hi-ISO noise debates on various forums. I guess we should all thank Sony for introducing a FF camera with top of the class resolution priced at only $3000. I doubt Canon would otherwise put a 2400 EUR price tag on 5D's successor (to be honest I doubt it's going to be below 3k).
