I would LOVE to be wrong, but how could this camera be real? What differentiates it from the 1DX? (ie. is there $4100 in difference?)
61pt AF? Smells like a 1DX
6.9FPS? Pretty powerful to pump 22MP through on just a Digic 5
$2700? Why would I ever pay $6800 for a 1DX aside from [arguably] a little ISO help on the top end?
I can totally understand why most folks on this forum are skeptical about such a camera at this price but remember what people thought of the 5D mark II when it first came out? It was basically a small replica of the 1Ds mark III (selling for $8000 at the time) offered at $2700, OK so the AF of the mark II sucked but you got the video functionality instead and this was a fair trade. Of course the mark II all but killed the 1Ds III sales by selling for 1/3 of the 1Ds III price. So who knows, maybe they will do the same again and offer the 5D X for less than 1/2 the price of the 1D X with comparable functionality. Maybe they need to sell large number of the 61 point AF module to make production profitable and that's the only way to sell that many units.
