This is from the (Italian) forum where the image of the Canon event expected for March 2th comes from.
The image and alleged theories about a imminent announcement of the 5D3/5Dx appeared on many dedicated Internet sites, to to mention the buzz on Twitter. However, things are not that sure as they may seem.
The strange thing: the invitation (written in Italian) for a “breakfast at EOS” (that’s the translation, trust me: I speak Italian) appeared on this site, and then disappeared (but you can check it here, it’s the Google-cached version of the original page). Read it Google translated clicking here.
Some thoughts about:
- I couldn’t find any “invitation” written in English on the Internet; isn’t that somewhat strange?
- Why has the image been posted and then be deleted?
- Is this a hoax? (but I do not think the original poster wanted to fool us)
However, on the same forum
two images of a Canon soon-to-be-started event appeared.
This one in Shanghai:
And this one…well, I do not know, maybe in Italy (not really, indeed …:
Finally, this is the very first forum post (click here, and here for the Google translation) where the invitation image showed up . The post dates February, 27.
I am confused and really would like to know what you think about. Is it a hoax?
