The EOS-M2 catches my eye. If it has fast AF at a reasonable price, I may give it some thought.

1DSx ?

That could be a potentially unfortunate designation - if it didn't live up to expectations, it would be rapidly renamed the 1DSux.   :P

Can someone who reads Japanese let us know what it says about the EOS-M2, please?

I'm hoping for full frame...

Thanks!

Again not much detail on the EOS M. He lists his prediction at 80% probability on this one. An EOS M2 "might" include three main improvements.

1) Variable angle LCD
2) Built in EVF
3) Improve speed for AF in live view

The scan job was not very good which makes certain words hard to read...No mention of the sensor.

Edit: See corrections noted below.

Here is what is written for the EOSM2, as some of the previously reported posts were incorrect. There will be a change to a vari-angle LCD, as well as a higher end model that will be able to take an ACCESSORY EVF (I assume they mean in the shoe), NOT a built in finder (specifically, he uses 外付け (そとづけ)EVF ). Also not reported correctly in previous posts is that an upgrade to the AF speed in live view may have to wait 1 ~ 2 more generations of cameras. His words: ライブビューAFの高速化はもう1〜2世代待つ必要があるかも。

The specs on the D70 does NOT say 3fps. It says "3.0-inch Variable Angle LCD"

+1.  Could be around 5FPS.

I'd lean towards the 5.5-6 fps.  But anything under 5 just doesn't seem right.

+1....I want really want to own a P&S camera size with FF sensor, like the speedy AF Sony RX-1, without fixed lens of course.

There will be a real (big megapixel) replacement for the 1Ds Mark III with an outstanding image quality.

All big megapixel sensors (prototypes) are in an 1D X style body.

70D would pretty much have to supply at least 5fps to maintain its prosumer category which the 60D nearly lost due to lost features and downgraded handling.

7d2 can have the same AF as the 7D, it was good enough for most things once you figured it out, worked well in low light and action tracking.  Adding ability to track the subject also using color cues from a more complex metering sensor would be a nice benefit to have to match some of the Nikon bodies.

but they'd better get rid of the banding and pattern noise problems for both new bodies, especially at low ISO. It's become a pathetic weakness already when competitors' cameras costing under $400, like the ultra tiny Pentax Q or D5100, can supply raw images without banding problems.

Because landscapers and architectural photogs love dragging big and heavy cameras? No, I find that hard to believe. But if that is the case then it is a stupid move by Canon, and the D800 looks even more appealing.

Nope, as someone who does the above for a living, I -do- want a hefty 1 series body. I'd much rather see a genuine 1Ds3 replacement than something in a small body... The 1D X didn't amount to a significant enough upgrade for the work I do (important caveat, given it's a very good camera for many)

Same AF yeah, but what if they went with the trend and added the same AF as the 1DX/5D3 ?? Now, I don't know how that would affect 1DX sales, but if it would then the 5D3 would be killing off the 1DX more, people will get a 1D because they need specifically that, and a 7DII like that would be killer~
But anyways, the 60D was a failure and only survived with by slashing down the price immensely, and it's flip screen was nice... that's about it, no AFMA, not a significant AF or FPS or Sensor that makes it any more than a rebel.
Will the 70D change that? I sure think, and hope it will, because the 7DII will likely cost around 2,000 and the 70D will be the in between model at say 1,200? But rebels are quiet expensive on release.... *sigh*

I would love to see a true 1Ds Mark III replacement.  The 1D X was not it.
