I think at this point the only way to improve remarkably the IQ is to increase the light gathering area.

Well, I think it would be safe to assume that Canon would probably announce the 1Ds, 5D, and 7D successors before we start hearing things about the next 1D. That's three major products, so I think its reasonable to assume some "off time" between each announcement.
Now, if you factor in the effects of the tsunami, I don't think announcement would start until late 2011 at the earliest. Note - announcement, not the time the new products hit the shelf (which could be anyone's guess).
So it's going to take a while before it gets to the 1D line...
The second is that the smaller sensor size allows a faster frame rate - dual Digic IVs could not achieve 10 fps from a FF sensor.
I'm not familiar with the APS-H line, but I find this a little curious.
Switching to FF will make the owner's lenses a little short[er], while switching to APS-C will make them a little long[er]. A need to buy new lenses with a new body sounds like an opportunity to switch brand.
Yes Nikon are really good at undermining their Pro model sales with their lower tier cameras. The D3 sold really well upto the point when Nikon released the D700 (both great cameras btw). Canon are a little smarter in this regard, they create different AF modules for each price point. Nikon seem to put the same Pro AF into anything they can these days which can't be good for their business long term. Sometimes i look at Nikon's range and i struggle to work out which are the comsumer, pro-sumer and pro models.
Itâ€™s been said before, but a new 1D in 2011. Announced in the June/July timeframe. Full frame this time around.
Couldn't canon release a Fuji X100 competitor as also completing their "Pro Compact Camera" line (S95 and G12)?
I'm talking about a low-light compact monster, that would expand their compact line.
S95 = very compact; G12= very adaptible; Mirrorless = low-light quality.
although I find the rumor a bit strange and unbelievable as well, I disagree on the idea that the 1DIV is basically a 1DIII "N" ... a totally new sensor, fixed AF system, and video implementation? doesn't seem like a minor refresh, that's a totally different product
1D Mark IVn . Naah.
The 1DIV is an 'n' version of the 1DIII, so no 1D Mark IVn.
Canon is receiving quite a lot of bashing for not having the same low light performance as Nikon, and not so much appreciation for having higher resolution.
