My bet is that they introduce a dSLR and a mirrorless variant of the same high res camera. Also with a brand new mount for the mirrorless and a lens or two.

My bet is that in the long run, the EF-S mount will be discontinued. It is wise to start introducing mirrorless in the rebel line, as the customers here probably is less demanding. Let the technology mature a bit before introducing mirrorless to the 70D/7D lineup.
It would have to "mature" an order of magnitude or two before it would be usable in a 7D type camera.
If going pure EVF mean it'll be mirrorless... 2 possibilities:
1) Replace by EOS M or design a slim rebel and use EF-M mount.
2) Remain the similar size as current rebel, so can still use EF mount and also a larger capacity battery.
I hope at least is 2 as EVF need a lot of power...
Have a nice day.
I can't say that I hate pop-up flash. I have it and on occasion I use it, but I'm certainly no big fan of it. Putting a pop-up flash on a pro body would make me look for alternatives. It's hard to imagine such a flash, with a GN high enough, and without putting a severe penalty on the numbers of shots the battery would last. The current ways of positioning pop-up flash also leaves a little more to be desired - it's awfully close to the optical axle, and can't be swirled or tilted.
I'd rather save up to an old style hammerhead flash from Metz, than go with a built-in flash on pro bodies.
Direct light coming off the camera is horrendous.
I honestly can't think of a useful way to use a pop-up flash (other than blinding people in dark rooms so that you can run away).
One reason "pro" cameras don't have it, is the prism in the pro camera is generally much larger. Looking through my 5DIII and then my 7D, is like going from a 60 inch HDTV to walmart laptop screen.
If you look at the bump that is under the pop-up flash you will realize how small the prism is in there, vs a "pro" camera. Of couse you could put a large pup-up on a pro camera, but it might look so large and bulbus as to be silly.
All that said, I like the pop-up on my 7D and use it from time to time.
Isn't a point about pop up flash and articulating screens not being on pro cameras because it affects sealing, and sealing is deemed more important than these features for pros?I am sure they can overcome this if they want to. Others have!
We have all seen the discussions, about why popup-flash is left out on the pro bodies from Canon. Those in favour of leaving it out says it is because it can break, and it is not a "pro feature".
Is the 6D a 'pro body'?
IMO, it's a marketing decision. Canon wants your money. FF bodies (from Canon) don't have a popup flash. FF bodies cost more. Canon figures if you need a flash and can afford a FF body, you can afford a Speedlite.
I've been debating on this for a couple months now since I don't really use them for more than taking pictures of my kids and some occasional outings with our friends. It is a pain to lug around with the battery grip and kids stuff and I don't feel like I'm really getting anymore good use of out if (although everytime I take a picture they come out AMAZING). Anyone have any recommendations on something new? I haven't been following the mirrorless cameras much but they seem to be the 'next big thing'. My only requirement is that the camera shoots in RAW as I love to edit photos and touch them up in Lightroom.
Depends on what hybrid means. If it just means that they're able to show data superimposed over the OVF image, then no. If it means that the OVF can become a full EVF, then yes, but only when in EVF mode.I think what you describe is correct, just an evf superimposed over the ovf. I just thought that I've read a rumor about canon developing a hybrid VF. How it works, we'll, nobody but canon really knows. Hopefully they can bring the best of both worlds.
