7D already supports the possibility to edit these things right in camera. So I guess 5DIII as well....

I think a lot will depend on what Canon may/may not do in regards to a true mirroless camera...If Canon does move forward with a mirrorloess camera, your probably looking at a body based on the GX1 sensor or a APS-C, so were probably looking at something in the $1000-1500 range...Where does that leave a successor to the 7D/60D/T3i's?
If the 5d Mk2 eventually goes away, a 7D Mk2 could move up the chain and take over the 5D Mk2's spot and sell for $1900-2400 but then where would you put a 65D if you also have a mirrorless camera coming to market in that $1000-1500 range? You could slot a 65D in the $1200-1600 range if they basically turn the GX1 into a mirrorless camera and say it's priced at $1000...But given Canon's recent pricing trends, I doubt that...The next 6-8 months should be very interesting for Canon's mid to low level camera range indeed...
One thought that occurred to me is if a mirrorless camera is coming...a great marketing angle for it would be...
"Welcome the new Rebel"
...and it would replace the entire rebel lineup...
Despite being very excited that I saw the before-mentioned city in the product gallery for the 5DIII, that was about the only thing that excited me there. Now, is it just me, or should the pictures for the product launch that is so anticipated online be more exciting, grandiose, something to make the potential buyer go "wow", and all of us who were anxious to see them turn to our (enter name of a competing camera brand)-loving friends and say "told you so"?
Yes, you're right to note that there is marketing spin to all of it. However, in referring to Chuck Westfall's statements he noted that the claimed 2 stop improvement in the 1DX over the 1D4 was in the JPEG not in the sensor. In the case of the 5D3 he has commented that most of the 2-stop improvement is in the sensor.
We have to be cautious when they refer to improvements for in-camera jpegs because the improvements Canon has added to its jpeg processing have already been available in post-processing noise reduction algorithms in Lightroom, DxO, etc. The advanced NR techniques were just not built into the cameras because they didn't have enough processing speed/power to do it while maintaining the frame rate.
This all makes a certain amount of sense. The 1DX sensor is only 2 years newer than the 1D4 sensor which was already one of the least noisiest sensors available. The 5D3 sensor is 4 years newer than the 5D2 sensor which was designed prior to a number of sensor advancements that we've seen in the 1D4 as well as in the Sony sensors which have remarkably low readout noise.
Why would a press event be soooo tight lipped about a printer? There must be something much bigger coming here. We've seen press invites in the past for printers etc. and Canon are happy to publicize them but this time round, something is different.
surprised primes and spontaneous go together....But why are you surprised? Until you zoom to the right length the spontaneous moment is gone, isn't it? ;o)
More to the point, how big is the sensor? 1/3" or so like in most phones?
CMYK (Carmine, Magenta, Yellow, Black inks; for print these are standard while screens use Red, Green, Blue Phosphors (and there is a difference between sRGB and standard RGB) - you need a program that does both well
