5D Mark III/X Variation & New Flagship Speedlite? [CR1]

5D Mark III/X Specs
A slightly different spec list for the coming 5D3/5Dx. It mentions the camera using the 1D Mark IV AF system and not the 1D X’s 61pt AF. This is the first I’ve heard that. Definitely not a bad thing if true.

Also mentioned is an upgrade in weather sealing to match the 7D. I have heard of leaking 7D’s, so I’m not sure if that’s a good thing.

Replacement of the 580?
A new flagship flash may be coming shortly. No guide number was given, but a suggestion it will use radio to trigger flashes. It may also trigger cameras.
