It would need like 10fps at 46MP FF mode and better video than the 1DC all around every which way and Exmor-like low ISO DR. If it managed all of that then it certainly could justify 8k-9k. That would be the best DSLR ever made.
Not going to happen. Keep dreaming... you have totally lost it... 46MP alone is already dreaming... then everything else you ask as well... Might as well throw all the existing 1DX and 1DC in the thrash compacter and sell this camera alone. Do you think Canon plans on throwing its existing cameras (the ones in their inventory) like the 1DX and the 1DC in the thrash? Do you think that they are going to reduce the price of the 1DX or 1DC to the point that its close to or as affordable as the 5DIII? You can find the 1DsIV for $4500-$5000 still... so without dreaming... what do you think will really happen, given the past and present tech.?
Even still, with the specs that you are dreaming about it would be the best DSLR ever made, until someone else comes up with something better. Then you guys will be b!tching about something else.
Maybe so, but who would buy a 36MP, non-Exmor DR, 5fps, worse than 1DC video, bulky 1 series cam for $9000 when you could get the same and better for a fraction of that price from other brands???
Or even say it has exmor DR, why pay $9000 for a bulky 36MP exmor-quality 5fps 1080p camera when you get the same thing for Nikon for like what $2500 or something? You can buy the D810 and three key lenses AND keep your Canon lenses and perhaps current Canon body and still have spent no more than after selling your current Canon body and adding the new $9000 1DsX.
You can get an A7S+Ninja 4k recorder+metabones adapter for Canon lenses+Nikon D810+two Nikon lenses for $9000! So why on Earth would you spend $9000 for a bulky 1DsX that gives 36MP with DR but 5fps and no 4k video?
You can get an A7S+Ninja 4k recorder+A7R+metabones adapter for Canon lenses for like $7000. $2000 less.
This thing either needs to be with the spec I list or forget it.
And at some point the 1DX and 1DC have to go to the trash. I mean do they still sell the D30 and 1D as their top models or are they in the trash? The current stuff makes those look silly. (not that using the term "in the trash" is how I'd have chosen to put it, since they still take pictures and people can get good use out of stuff that is not the latest)
And the 1DC is really about to make zero sense. A7S+Ninja4k costs half the price and gives better quality. The new SOny videocamera blows away the 1DC for video and is the same price.
