Pretty impressive results on deblurring and CA correction on images produced by a hand-bulit simple lens.

Now the rumored but highly likely 5D Mark III is imminent.  And its specs make me think that Canon doesn't mind the 5D series further cannibalizing the 1D series even more than the what 5D2 did.  I for one drooled over the 1D X high ISO performance and killer AF.  But if 5D Mark 3 can do it only 1 stop less than 1D X and has similar but simplified 61-pt AF, I can totally see myself pre-ordering two 5D3's instead.

What are your plans?

"...Although we confirm the name on February 5, our information was not 100% reliable, but now we can take it for definitive. The new Canon EOS 5DX.

The X for Canon means several things. First and most important, the tenth generation of EOS cameras. Canon wants to celebrate the tenth generation of EOS brand with the X in its most important models. Second but not least, means intersection/union, as in the case of  Canon EOS 1DX, which unifies the D bodies. In the Canon EOS 5DX case, would mean the intersection/union of 5D and 7D bodies, the union between FF, AF and medium-speed burst. This union between the 5D and 7D bodies was confirmed in our news about Canon’s 2012 pro Roadmap on 14 February.

Soon we will have more news. We expect some confirmation on the video capabilities, capabilities that our informants say it will surely impress anyone.

"...We apologize to all readers. Our information about the name of the next 5D, have not been good, although our informant has great prestige in the world film industry. Anyway, we can not lay the blame on the sources. The blame belongs to him who breaks the news (us) not to the source. We assume our error...."

So this CR3 said:

There will not be a 5D Mark III or similar announced on February 7, 2012.  It is suggested the “embargo” lift on the 7th may be for samples from the EOS-1D X.

It's now Feb 7.  I just check Canon JP and DC Watch.  There are still no high resolution samples.

Would this embargo lift be actually related to the announcement of 24-70 f/2.8 II on Feb 7?

When will we be able to see 1D X high resolution samples like those of D800 that are available on day 1???
