A true Cinema body could have about 12MP... and then when used to shoot video, it would mask down to 8-9MP. (Exactly what the Sony A7S is/does). So you can still get great low light stills but have a perfect pixel for pixel capture of true 4k with no bining. But if they do actually produce such a machine, they need to get it out sooner than later and make sure they allow it to have a TRUE clean HDMI outputI think Sony is on the right path with their A7 line, they just havent actually supported it with lenses like Canon and Nikon have. But, the idea of a high MP studio/landscape cam, a more general workhorse (wedding/sport/event), and then a low-light video/street cam is a pretty smart differentiation. I'd settle for 12MP stills if it came with ISO performance like the A7s.
May have taken a few years longer than necessary, but, seems Canon is coming around to a decent strategy
