This is an interesting discussion...If this new medium format sized camera is not going in the 1DX type body then I suspect that it will be in the $4K price range? Seems to me that if they get much beyond that they have the same problem that they have now competing with Nikon's D800, which clearly gets better marks than does the 5D MK III
I am more interested in what this new sensor technology, as applied to a replacement for my 1DX will look like, be, and cost....I mean, how many fps does a wildlife or sports shooter need, 20? Or more?? I have seen DSLR technology come a long way in the last 10 years...and the current techology today, at the high end of the $$ scale, is pretty amazing...I guess it will be fun, if not EXPENSIVE, to see where it goes next.....we have seen what the latest lens costs are, $18K for the new Nikon 800mm and the 200-400 costing as much as the 600 II costs...oh well, I will be waiting....but I don't expect to see any replacement for the 1DX actually hit the streets before the end of 2015....thoughts??
