These are fixed lens camcorders. I know they serve a purpose, but...snore.

mkabi, to my knowledge, those RED sensors have never been released. I remember seeing them talked about years ago, but I never heard anymore than that.
Back to the lens, it's probably going to be over $20k. Likely in the $30k's, at least, but we'll see in a week or less. Spec wise, I haven't heard exact numbers(more correctly, I've heard two or three different, but similar zoom ranges) and I don't want to say the exact numbers that I have heard, but it's supposed to be wider than 20mm and longer than 105mm. Aperture, I haven't heard either, but hopefully a constant T2.9. And regarding the picture, I was told this morning by someone that officially they have to say it might be fake, but it's not- unofficially...
But, until Canon releases an announcement it's all rumor. By this time next week, we should know for sure. NAB really gets cranking Monday.
Is the *optical* quality of a Canon CN-E50mm T1.3 L F better than the IQ of a 50mm 1.2L? If yes, it would be interesting to get compared to the Zeiss Otus 55 f1.4...
Should be the same or virtually identical, different coatings maybe so maybe better contrast, more aperture blades I think, better mechanics.Smart, if this is true. But it doesn't address the pressing need for a 7DC or 5DC 4K DSLR or Cinema EOS equivalent for under $10K, does it Canon?
You personally not having a need for it does not mean there is not a need for it. The fact that there is so much interest in ML and Black Magic cameras clearly proves the point that there very much IS a need for it.
There's interest, but relative to the CX00 line.... there aren't sales. The BMCC and ML products are "alternative" products that cater to niche audiences (primarily high end hobbyists) that Canon does not need to cater to because this market is much smaller (with significant competition) than the market (low end tv/indie cinema/high end event and wedding) they are doing exceptionally well in. C300s rent very well and are ubiquitous on reality shows as A cams and dramatic tv as B cams.
Besides, since the Black Magic cameras and 5D hack already cater to this market... there are already products here to choose if you are not interested in what the CX00 line has to offer. Hence what need is there for the same product but Canon-branded (and inevitably much more expensive)? Were Canon to add raw and 4k to its dSLRs it would cannibalize 1DC and C500 sales, which are already workflow nightmares, and force immature workflows onto consumers who are likely not as ready for them as those willing to drop huge price premiums are, compromising the company's reputation for easy-to-use production-ready hardware. Black Magic caters to an enthusiast crowd (similar to Red) that is willing to put up with workflow issues and immature hardware for what they perceive to be significant image quality gains... Canon is interested in the "good enough for your client and really easy to use" market.
When 4k tvs, monitors, and post-production workflows are mainstream Canon dSLRs will shoot 4k. (Maybe a few years after even, Canon dawdles a bit with such tech it seems.)
I would expect a 44.2MP 4K FF sensor (11520x7680)
Curious - how did you get that sensor size?
Isn't 4k twice 1080 which is 1920 x 1080 so twice would be 3820 x 2160?
You know what will be a head turner?
Instead of a 7DC, they release a 5DC... 24MP Dual Pixel & 4K. Game over.
If they put 4K video on it, NAB would be a great place to announce it.True, but I don't see that happening. For one, there would have been a lot more rumor leaks that it would have 4k, especially since there have been so many other cameras adding 4k.
A firmware update for the 1D-C, and new EOS cine body that actually does 4k that does cheaper than the C500 would be what to expect from Canon

<p><strong>Dual Pixel technology more than just AF?<br />
</strong><a href=\"http://www.northlight-images.co.uk/cameras/Canon_rumours.html\">NL</a> reports that they’ve been told to expect even more new features from Canon’s Dual Pixel technology other than autofocus. Currently the tech appears in the <a href=\"http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/986389-REG/canon_8469b002_canon_eos_70d_dslr.html/bi/2466/kbid/3296\" target=\"_blank\">EOS 70D </a>and will also appear in an upgraded <a href=\"http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/889545-REG/Canon_EOS_C100_EF_Cinema.html/bi/2466/kbid/3296\" target=\"_blank\">EOS C100</a>. Will the <a href=\"http://www.canonrumors.com/2013/11/from-interbee-interview-with-the-head-of-cinema-eos/\" target=\"_blank\">C300 get a similar upgrade</a>?</p>
<p>Apparently dual pixel design will need the latest generation of processing (DIGIC 6/7?) technology to realize its full potential. The benefits of this alongside new CODECS will be seen in the next Cinema EOS cameras and possibly in new high end DSLRs.</p>
<p>The video and stills segments of the professional lineup will get upgrades in 2014. Cinema EOS will get it first, and possibly be shown in April at NAB 2014 in Las Vegas. DSLRs will get it in the second half of the year and will most likely be shown at Photokina 2014 in Cologne, Germany.</p>
