This can only be Sony announcing a 30+MP FF camera as the 24MP APS-C is fairly well rumored now. If it was from Nikon, it wouldn't be a surprise as almost everyone is expecting a 30+MP D4 (no surprise there, is there?)

This is fairly inline with what weâ€™ve heard previously.
This may be in line with what we've heard previously, but we're obviously hearing these things from people who are making this crap up.
- Image sizes: 32.4 mp, 16.2 mp, 8.1 mp @ 5, 3 fps
- APS-H mode (1.3x) â€“ 24.9 mp, 12.5 mp, 6.2 mp @ 8, 3 fps
- APS-C mode (1.6x) â€“ 20.3 mp, 10.1 mp, 5.1 mp @ 10, 3 fps
Folks, if you're going to fabricate a rumor and send it to CRguy, please go out and learn how sensor sizes scale and also some basic math.
If you take a FF 32.4 MP sensor and run it in a hypothetical 'APS-C mode' you don't get a 32.4 Ã· 1.6 = 20.3 MP image. The 'crop factor' is a diagonal measure that impacts field of view, but real pixels on a sensor have both x and y dimensions, so when you scale a FF 32.4 MP sensor to that 'APS-C mode' you get a 32.4 Ã· 1.62 = 12.6 MP image.
Please, go waste someone else's time, or come back when you're smarter.
I declare shennigans!!
What lens did you use for this?
I took this with my point and shoot before I really got into photography. If I had to guess, the equivalent focal length was about 40mm (the camera was a Canon Powershot S3 IS, which was 38mm equivalent at the widest end).
What if the 5D Mark3 never appears and we get a 3D (next year) and a 6D this year?That wouldn't happen. If a more advanced model comes out called the 3D, and a 5DII beating "FF DLSR that also does video" is released then why would Canon released it as a 6D and discontinue the 5D line? The makes no sense from their past naming patterns and no sense from a marketing perspective.
And if the 3D moves up in terms of what it offers photographers and gets all of the hyped up video (even 3D video!) and the 6D becomes the FF DSLR "that also does video"?
Of course all of those 5D Mark2 owners that feel like their camera is linked to their ego will be suddenly overcome with waves on insecurity because a "lower model" camera will be better than theirs and will cry out in shame at how could Canon do this to them. Diddums.
This is actually almost standard M-O for Canon DSLR's. About 2 weeks prior to the real announcement, some Canon affiliated web site "accidentally" posts some tidbit about the soon-to-be-announced camera. In this case, it looks like it was the name. Other times, it was a photo, or a spec sheet, or even a full draft of the press release.
I'd say we can expect an EOS 6D to be announced anywhere from 1 to 3 weeks from now.
While I agree about Canon's M-O for leaks, I don't see a 6D announced right now.
As the name suggests, a 6D would sit between the 7D and the 5DII.
The thing is, there's no need for an even more advanced 1.6x camera than the 7D.
But if the 6D is FF, what features could Canon possibly cripple, so that the 6D sits below the 5DII ??
Make it a 1-fps camera with just a single AF-point ??
In the last 24 hours, I've read reports of people walking out of Jessops with large boxes of expensive digital camera equipment. I imagine that if you could find the people that have those boxes, you can get a pretty good bargain :-)
nothing like buying from scums to fuel more looting
Could someone please actually state the sale price that BestBuy was offering? The price is already back up to $2499, and no one thus far stated the sale price. Seems like basic information that they should have included in the OP.
I can tell how you f'ed it up, you put all that damn text over it!
Rumor is bullS___. If FF is 32 MP, then APS-C crop is 32 / 1,6 / 1,6 = 12,5 MP.
Now ... Imagine the guys with a FF Nikon D3S in crop mode. They get about 5.5 mp. Yet, we see people clamoring for this feature who can't do the math.
The people who sell their equipment, expecting it's price to fall when the new equipment is actually announced.
How about all those people who sold their 70-200mm f/2.8 L IS lenses in anticipation of the MkII version of that lens, only to kick themselves when used prices went UP by a couple hundred dollars once the new version was released?
Exactly. What is the 7D missing? Flip screen? No sense holding your breath on this one. Until Digic V materializes, the 7D seems fine where it is.How could you forget to mention the 7D Mark2 in your summary?!?!?!
Because there are no real rumors about a 7D2
