Dont think so. The 6D even got 1/180 probably to give another reason to get a higher priced body. I guess they will leave the faster syncs to the 1D series, cuz thats what professionals use with their flash firing going wild :P

If they did do it, I'd buy one.

I'm constantly hitting the wall with slow flash sync speeds. Australian light can be hard, harsh and brutal, and when there is no option but to shoot through the middle of the day, fill flash is often a must.
nah just trust the "experts" here who will tell you 1/180 x-sync is not a problem and you will not use it anway.  ::)
you will find these experts in any 6D thread....

Riiiight! Thanks for that. I feel OK about this matter now. I should have been completely satisfied with 1/200 sec sync and stop pushing the boundaries of how I can achieve a great shot in difficult conditions.

And thanks paul13walnut5, I'll check out the D40.

If using speedlight or speedlights on HS up to 1/8000 sync is still not enough power...
fastest DSLR Ive used is 250th. with larger output like Profoto 7b. need more power add another one.. now thats at 2400ws need more then go X4 or generator A/C with 2X 2400 units...
the problem usually is how big an area of light you are creating at what distance.

if you want to kill the sun overhead fly a 8x8 or 12X12 overhead and light from the side.
