And if it features another slow zoom lens and tiny optical viewfinder, it will be equally unexciting.

And there is is irony....the 1Dx was to unify the two 1D ranges...the 1DIII and 1DsIII into a single body and a single range....but the 1DX came out at the price point of the old 1Ds range....if the 1DX proves to be nothing more than a full frame 1D series...then how much will Canon charge for their 1Ds replacement? Silly money I guess...
What sort of IQ will it have?
Expect nothing worse than the current 24MP APS-C in Nkon/Sony but hopefully much better.
Yeah, I know, not enough to better the current Phase One IQ backs for medium format. Shucks.
This was my last favorite comment from this thread. I totally agree...Canon can take their time on the 5D IV and 1D neXt. Far too early to replace those cameras. I suspect the big camera Canon will be at least announcing next year will be the big megapixel camera...the 1Ds X or whatever then end up naming it. The landscape and studio photography camera.
Personally, I hope it gets the following (this would be my wish list for the 1Ds X):
- 180nm sensor fab process, 60% Q.E.
- 46mp (8350x5567) or 54mp (9000x6000)
- 16-bit on-die parallel ADC (3e- flat read noise)
- 15+ stops DR
- ISO 52100
- 1D X meter and AF system
- 61pt AF unit
- 5fps frame rate (FF), 7fps (APS-H cropped), 9fps (APS-C cropped)
- Integrated intervalometer, 9999 max frame count, configurable inter-frame delay, configurable pre-start delay, manual mode or bulb mode support, bulb-ramping
- Price not to exceed $6,999
Seems more like a firmware update than a whole new camera...
hmm. no new lenses?
The 'leak' is of the camera's spec.
Where does it imply there are no new lenses?
