6 hours have been and gone, the suspense of wondering what the OP decided on is killing me!

There's no such thing as an "entry level" full-frame camera...makes zero sense marketing/business wise. The Cine-DSLR will obviously be full-frame. I can see a market for a 1DsMkIII-esque studio replacement in terms of a 3D/4D high MP monster but not suggesting that is coming, however much more market for that than cannibalizing the investment Canon has made in the 60D, 7D (7D II) etc. with a $2,400 full frame camera...UNLESS it shot only stills which would make no sense really given phones are shooting 1080P video now. The 5D3 is the "entry-level" full-frame camera if you want to use that term; and the 1Dx is the flagship full-frame camera, certainly room in between them for a studio, high MP body. There will not be a 5DX, that was a creation of this site I think, not seen anything from Canon on a "5DX", the Cine-4K DSLR is not going to be in the 5D line, it is meant for an entirely different market, the market it was announced at, Hollywood, with the C-300. There will not be a <$3000 full frame camera from Canon this year, period...if ever.
erm...yes? Not going to tell you, or anyone else, how to spend their hard-earned. If you've got it, and you want it, have at it!
Didn't pre-order, walked into Jessops (Leeds, UK) this afternoon and bought the kit with the 24-105 lens. Am happy, but poor.
While I'm jealous, in two weeks I'll have my own and be £800 better off. Which kind of alleviates it.
