Perhaps we will see (I can dream) that we will see $2000 of 1Dx. That would be nice, very nice

Don't try a "universal charger" like the one they sell at "The Source".... I have a friend who got one for her SX-40.... and it didn't work.... I tried it on my LP-E6's.... and it didn't work... she gave it to anther friend with a Rebel and it didn't work... and the last person in our group had a Nikon p/s and it worked for her...
Moral of the story, universal chargers aren't....
These threads always polarize the forum community, but I do think there is a market for high-resolution sensors. And I believe Canon is aware of this, and are trying to develop such a system (Zeiss mentions the word "high-resolution sensors" multiple times in their Otus announcement, and they cater to both Canon and Nikon). However, given Canon's recent trend towards bringing out the absolute top products in their class, it is more than likely that they are spending the extra time and effort to create something great rather than settling for good. After all, with good sales on their existing products they don't need to push out something before it's ready.
Maybe that's why they haven't introduced much exciting stuff in the past few years...
Yup. 1DX, 5D3, and 6D aren't much fun... 24-70 F2.8L II and 70-200 F2.8L II aren't much fun either...
I would expect a 44.2MP 4K FF sensor (11520x7680)
Update - 1D X results:
95145MB/s (according to the package) write: 51 frames
-Sandisk 90MB/s write: 52 frames
-Sandisk 150MB/s write: 57 frames
This is interesting and shows that the buffer size or the interface in the 1DX is different than the 5DIII, but all of the results are excellent given that the Sandisk 1067x card is delivering a burst depth of 35 RAW frames in the 5DIII (vs. the rated 18) and 57 RAW frames in the 1D X (vs. the rated 38). RAW+JPEG to the two Sandisk cards topped out at 15 frames, FYI.
Bottom line - the fastest Sandisk cards rock the 5DIII, while the older Sandisk cards are a great deal for the 1D X. Lexar doesn't quite ive up to their specs, at least in these two Canons.
Also, on a personal note, the 1D X may only be 2x faster on paper, but the thing sounds about 20x faster than the 5DIII. I can't wait to shoot with it...
Like I said, it just seems to me, that professional cameras, will all move to even larger sensors in the future.
Why?Because not enough consumer level cameras will sell...because those people use smartphones and tablets (or whatever the fad will be at the time) to take pictures. Again I'm not saying Canon will replace 35mm format sensors, with something 50 to 60mm, or larger in width. I'm saying it seems like it would be between 36mm and 50mm...like 40 to 45mm. And it won't be in widespread use...for quite a while...8 to 10 years is my prediction. But I'm not predicting the demise of Sony in the meantime...Nikon might be another story, though!
You keep repeating this assertion. People keep saying they disagree. They give their reasons...which are well thought out and logical. You consistently reject their views, but don't offer any evidence to support your position.
You say if Canon offers this amazing super camera at a fraction of the cost of its competitors it will create the market and suddenly everyone will want this imaginary camera. What makes you so sure Canon could offer such a camera at a fraction of the cost of its competitors? And, what makes you so sure moving to a larger sensor would suddenly become the end-all and be-all of all photographers, when so many people on this forum are saying "no thanks."
If anything, the trend has been toward smaller sensors. Full frame sells only a small fraction of APS-C and even then, one of the main reasons why full frame is popular is because it is consistent with the traditional size of 35mm film cameras. It's a size that has been tested and proven in the marketplace. Why would the world suddenly want a new size with all the compromises and additional costs it would entail?
It's fun to debate these sort of esoteric issues for entertainment purposes, but really, just repeating the same assertion time and time again without anything to back it up gets a little tedious.
Canon has see the D800 sales figures, so they know that high megapixels aren't in huge demand, but they probably also know there is a small subset of customers that will pay a premium for more resolution. Give them what they want, but keep the production costs down.
Camera sounds great. Only wish that Canon would get with it and produce such a camera. 20 FPS is a great - wonder how fast the camera can write the flash card
I just read a blurb on DxOmark that said this thing can shoot SIXTY fps in a burst if AF is locked?!?
Holy buffer-size! Even if it is limited to 40 raw as they stated, that's a LOT of speed!
Can anyone confirm that? My local Nikon web site is not so clear on the issue in the spec's page.
EDIT: OK, actually found that here:
At approximately 20 fps, the Nikon 1 V3 also boasts the world's fastest*1 high-speed continuous shooting rate with AF tracking, as well as high-speed continuous shooting at up to approximately 60 fps when focus is locked. This, as well as the world's shortest*3 shooting time lag ensures fast and precise focusing on moving subjects.
