Looking back on this rumor, I wonder if the "new 70-300 f/4-5.6 IS" was a reference to the 70-300L that appeared less three months later.

Do you use cameras with and without the AA filters? I shoot the D800, 5DIII, D800E, D810 and the D7100. In ALL cases, for my most detailed landscape work at low ISO, the cameras without the AA filter produce superior IQ Images to ones that have the AA filter and I have the large prints (3 feet by 2 feet average size) to prove it.
Some people are excited, some are denouncing this. One thing is for certain: this is a huge buzz that will not just affect Canon shooters but shake up the market for other brands as well. Studio/landscape shooters will be flocking to this 50MP body if all goes well, and suddenly Nikon and Sony will have to have something like this.
Landscape AND Studio body?
I feel so foolish now for having paid £1800 for a 5D3 when it was being sold locally for just £2999.99 without running the risk of receiving an incorrect power cord

One shouldn't expect Dual Pixel sensors manufactured by Sony. No way.
If Canon did this, DXO would implode from having no one left to pick on.
They might have to start testing cameras rather than sensors.
