...They are milking the products which in turn give us either the same or a very very small step towards new technology.

or, the incremental or small steps forward are a reflection of their real technology and mfg capabilities

someone mentioned that Canon could do something bold and tool up with the largest possible APS-C sensor that would accept an APS-C lens, in order to squeeze every possible bit of IQ.  Sort of a "get as close to H" as possible. 

While the motivation for this is admirable, and conceivably there may very well be some largish C sensor size that would still provide all the various geometries in the mirror box required to accept the C lens mount.  I rather suspect, however, that Canon has boxed themselves out of such a possibility due to the existing (and expanding) APS-C lenses which, by virtue of their 1.6x design point, do not have sufficient image circle IQ to support anything larger.   for example, as cool as it would be to have the 10-22 suddenly turn into a 14-32 FF equivalent instead of the present 16-35, I wonder what the edges would look like...

Here is what I expect for Canon's near future lineup:
  • EOS-Rebel T3i $500
  • EOS-M $800
  • EOS-Rebel T4i $800
  • EOS-100D(M2) $1000
  • EOS-10D(Rebel T5i) $1000
  • EOS-8D(70D) $1500
  • EOS-9D $1500 (Pro APS-C or Full Frame EOS-M)
  • EOS-6D $2000
  • EOS-7D $2500
  • EOS-7D C $3000(7D/5D body with C100 sensor)
  • EOS-5D $3500
  • EOS-3D $4500(40+ MP in 1Dx body)
  • EOS-1D X $6500
  • EOS-1D C $12000

What do you guys think? I think it would clean stuff up quite nicely then they could just start adding new marks to new models, I also think it gives multiple choices in the same price ranges and they would like it to keep higher prices bodies from slipping

When was the last time an integrated grip body was $4500?

With the new tech it would be an about-face from existing pricing trends.

Ah, I guess you're right.  It doesn't necessarily need an integrated grip but I think I remember the 1D MarkIV hitting that MSRP before being discontinued and I assume it will priced above the 5D yet still have to compete with Nikon's $3000 high megapixel camera so I figured what better way than to give it a higher grade feel but pixels that small and a resolution that high I doubt Image Quality and Shoot Features would be close enough to 1D X's price range. 

Hmm the more I talk about this the more I think it'll end up being something like a 5D3 body with just a new 40+MP sensor for $4000 like a "4D" or "5D3s" lol. Hey, h.265 just got ok'd too and they promise 4k with it so maybe that's what Canon is waiting for; a 5D3 with a 44MP sensor and 4K H.265 video with 4fps bursts and a 4" LCD screen called the EOS-4D LOL Japan would hate it ;-P
