For me personally, the question is:

Will the rumored (http://www.techtoyreviews.com/canon-5ds-image-leaked-price-tag-3800/) 3800$ (5DS) or the 4300$ (5DsR) be worth the price, Canon will want to have for it?

Or wait for an 5DIV, an goldenegglayingwoolmilksaw??? But how much will this be????

Those prices are way too high. If true, Canon killed the success of this camera right out the door. It can't be more than the D810. If anything it needs to be less, as most people looking for higher MP and higher DR have already moved to Nikon. I doubt many people are going to pay more for something with just more MP. 36MP is already taxing out many lenses and is a huge amount of detail!

I can't even think of a single professional landscape photographer who hasn't moved on to an A7R or D800/810 by now, who shoots with 35mm format gear.

Sir, I am just an hobby photographer, but why shouldn´t Canon drain our wallet as much they can?
Look at Apple, whose iPhones are just incremental better than the earlier model? But on each sucessor, the price moves up and up....

thx.

If the problems continue, one of friends will fix this problem for me. He works for the German consumer protection department...
But this procedure is a shame...

According to Kenrockwell, which is the most reliable source and famous website for evaluating the camera and lens posted a live photo of Canon 5DS, it’s identical to pictures leaked on the Internet. Ken – the site owner said he had hand on model mock up of the Canon 5DS and brought into the studio to shoot with the 100mm F / 2 lens. In addition, Ken also revealed the price of the Canon 5DS will be $ 3800, approximately 2,35968 rupees. Meanwhile Canon 5DS R version will cost $ 4300, approximately 2,67016 rupees

I have read some of the messages...

The two Canon 5d's are Studio Cameras. The 50mp Sensor is Produced by Sony! Now we all know Canon loves to way over price their cameras, that Cinema Camera comes to mind on that point...I am guessing $3,500 to almost to $5,000.

There is no confirmation the sensor is produced by Sony. Not saying it isn't. But there is no confirmation it is.  In fact, Canon Watch had a subsequent CW3 (CR 1-2 equivalent) that it is NOT Sony, but Canon.  And No Canon doesn't over price their cameras. Everyone thought the 7D2 was going to be $2500+ while kept saying no way, it'll be under $2000 just like the older model. Wham. Same thing with the 100-400 Mk2. Everyone thinking $3000+.  I said $2000-$2500.  Wham.  As you can see I'm planning on going 3 for 3 ;-)  The new Studio Rigs will be between $3500-$4000 (maaaaaybe $4200 high side but I'm not feeling' it.  They are there to compete with a D810.  The 5D4 will Also be the same price as it will have 4k included where these Studio models will not.  The Prognosticator hath spoken!   ;D

+1 if you are right...

I heared that Canon was indeed thinking of using an non-Canon sensor on one of the tryout-models oft the 7DII, but decided not to do this. I read somewhere in the past, that there was an 24MP sensor in the wild with  great specifications (better DR, better ISO,...). The poster wrote, Canon was happy with this sensor, but they were in fear that an marvellous 7DII will "crop" al lot 5D... buyers.

I got an phonecall from the Service center on Friday: The "mainboard" is broken. Fixing this will cost me 700-800€. Canon is not willed to repair this on warranty. I should try to get my money back from the parcel service.... >:( :o

I told the Service man, that I am definitively not willed to pay this, as they sent the camera to me (so they are the risk-owner). So, he hang up.... More to come.....

EOS Bodies / Re: POLL: Price of 5Ds

In sony forums, they see the A7 successor around 2500-3000$. So, I guess, Canon will price it much higher, as they see the sony as an toy (words from Canon manager at Photokina). Maybe around 4000-4500$
But, on the other hand, the a7rII will have an superfast and accurate AF and IS an alternative to the 5Ds.

My son in law told me that Sony is not willed to compeed against the 5DIV, as this coming body will be something extraordinayry/exeptional/revolutionary like the 7D when it appeared on the market. But it will be very high priced.

UPDATE

I got some more tidbits about the specs (thanks). Here is the new specification list (lines in bold are the new specs):

    50.6MP full-size CMOS sensor (53MP total count)
    5DS R is without low-pass filter
    Magnesium alloy body
    Dust and water sealed
    Dual processor DIGIC6
    Regular sensitivity ISO 100-6400, expand to 12800
    Continuous shooting 5 frames / sec.
    High precision 61-point AF, 41 cross type
    EOS iTR AF
    150,000 pixel RGB + IR photometry sensor
    Added “fine detail” to the Picture Style
    1.3x and 1.6x crop shooting mode
    Customizable “Quick Control Screen”
    Time-lapse movie
    Anti-flicker
    Interval Timer
    Bulb timer
    No headphone terminal
    No DAF
    No HDMI output for video (clean out). Not to compete with 5D III other video features are same.

The source also stated that the sensor is made by Canon using a new CMOS manufacturing process. I rate the added specs as CW3. The new specs (if real) confirm that these are DSLRs not oriented to the videographers.

Canon's Q4 earnings report shows camera sales are down

The actual status of my 6D: It returned yestreday after almost 2 weeks. Camera works now basically. Changed the card-slot-board (if I have translated this right). But now, the main front wheel does not work. Sent it back again.... More to come

Argh, that's a good reason to have a backup camera. But on the bright side: They can hardly charge you again after sending back this camera as "repaired", so imho whatever should be the issue with the wheel should be on them.

The first repair was on warranty (free). As I told the service center, that it returned with an issue, they told me to send it to them again for free (an parcel service fetched the parcel)

I am very sorry, that I wrote not the exact process in my postings. I have removed the battery afterwards. I did everything that was written down in the manual.

I´ve tried to access the camera via USB, but it did not work.
One things I have recognised when I prepaired it for UPS: The batteries do get very warm.

The camera is now on the way to Canon

Much thanks for all replies!!!!!! I will write it in this forum, which error has occured.
