Based upon Canon's track record over the last couple of years, I have little faith in the possibility of a large MP camera anytime soon. Both Canon and Nikon must be reeling from the $$$ lost to iPhone/iPad, and other misc.digital capture tools. Gone are the days of top of the line updates ever 12 to 18 months. Canon has a hard time bringing anything to the shelf within a year of it's initial announcement, and there isn't a hint of any news. Can't quite figure their strategy out anymore. I used to rotate out of three or four pro line bodies every couple of years and replace them with the latest and greatest. They have been saving me lots of money lately by not doing much of anything.
