Can somone remind me where the new EOS-1 would most likely fall on the camera line up price wise. Will it cost less than the 1DX or more?

The new EOS-1 body is amazing and a big step over the 1D X. I like it.
Am I just not reading this right?,…are you referring to the current EOS 1Dx or a different 1 series body out in the wild somewhere?

What new eos-1 body? Thought 1dx was it so far.

Never the less, should be interesting to see what is announced.
It doesn't matter where you start, it's where you finish.  All that counts is the photograph.

Doesn't smell right.  Why would they be telling dealers of a price drop for the 1DX this far out in advance?  Are they splitting the 1D line between sports (1DX) and landscape/studio (new camera) again? 

I lump this one with all the other rumors of a high MP camera.  Canon is working on one...and someday, one of the rumors will be true, but none of the rumors have proven true so far.....

It's an Olympic and World Cup year, so I wouldn't be surprised if we this and a new 800mm.

Just what we need. Another $7,000 camera. Where is the 7D MkII???

But the 2014 1dxs will work nicely with your new 200-400L, won't it? :-p

... but think of this: Every advantage in the high end sector is good for everyone even with Rebel budget because Canon always (and only) filters down tech from the top, see 7d->70d and so on. So if they release a new 1d it will be likely there will be more features and less crippling in the 7d2 (and 5d4, 6d2, 750d...).

Correct, the only reason why Canon did that was that Magic Lantern added it to the 5d3 anyway and Canon wanted to save the embarrassment - but it didn't work, now a ML-5d3 shoots raw mlv (dng) 1080p video which you can import straight into Premiere and still shows how crippled and conservative the stock Canon fw is.

M.ST purports to have access to all new Canon prototypes months or years before they're released.  He has also claimed that Canon let him permanently keep at least one prototype camera (which seems extremely unlikely).  However, he never seems able to provide any substantiation for his claims.  I recommend taking his statements with a pinch of salt.  A small pinch like this one ought to do the trick...

Intersting.  So the Digic image processors aren't considered 'tech'...or maybe you have some other explanation for Digic4 debuting in the 50D, before showing up in the 5DII, 7D, 1D IV, and so on?   ::)

TBH, I actually don't care all that much now.

What we have is good enough for (most of) our needs.

+1

Maybe I'm just old and cranky, but Canon's approach to "innovation" of cranking out $2,500 bodies every two years with minor tweaks is getting a little old.  And in the case of the 1D series, we're talking $7,000 bodies.

Reminds me of the iPad Air launch; "Really - that's it?  Thanks, but no thanks."

So Nikon produces a large mega pixel (36mp) camera for $3k. If and when Canon produces a large mega pixel (speculated 47mp) camera it's looking to be around $7k in an EOS-1 boy type.  ::)

I thought, stupidly, I was the only one with that opinion of M.ST. (Isn't it a 40D prototype he claims to still own, along with his personal EF1200 f5.6?)

As for debuting tech, Nikon have always had the reputation of throwing everything possible into their pro range first, Canon have always had a much more conservative approach, a method exemplified by ECF (eye controlled focus) in the EOS3, Elan, A2e etc, it never made it to the big league.

Regarding the next 1 series, who knows what it will be, certainly nobody here, but if it is a 1Dx with >21mp but <30mp I have the $6-8,000 sitting waiting.

Right?  I just don't know what Canon is doing anymore.  My long held belief of, "I'm tied to Canon because of all the glass I own," may actually be starting to fade.  For the first time I am considering the possibility of moving on, or at least taking on another brand full time.

And as for the $3k price of the Nikon 36mp, don't forget that Sony will be launching their version come December 1 for $2,300 ... http://www.amazon.com/Sony-Full-Frame-Interchangeable-Digital-Camera/dp/B00FRDUZUK

Really makes you wonder what you could possibly get in the $7,000 version from Canon.
