You are all wrong.... This will be the 7DII..... and all for less than $1800.00 :)
...

Why not? And with a FF sensor based on the beloved 7 D 18 MPix sensor:
1.6 x 1.6 x 18 = 46

Interesting.

Would be a big coup for PhotographyBay on the rumor front if it pans out to be true.

8K resolution would just fit in the 44.7MP:
Taking into account the 3:2 aspect ratio, it would make a camera of 8192x5460 pixels, allowing
- 2x2 pixel binning for 4K recording
- 4x4 pixel binning for fullHD recording
- full pixel use for 8K imaging

44.7MP sounds too great to be true!

IMHO the 44 MP will be a 22MP = because of the new focusing system. Remember 2 pixels instead of one?

Now that monster 75 MP - it most probably will be a 44 MP for real. Having that amazing focusing system.... now we are talking. I am looking forward for the ISO improvements though.

Lots of patience required for all these goodies to trickle down to my price range   :'(

The photography agencies will buy that stuff, but I really think enthusiasts is where they're making the money on the expensive bodies and big lenses. I can't believe how many $10,000 lenses I see out there.....

Not to go off on a tangent but....
I'm amazed, too. In Yellowstone earlier this year there was a line of 20 photographers taking photos of fox kits (pups) and the whole line had BIG big whites.

I would be perfectly happy if it would be around 30MP. I just want the best possible image quality in a 1D body.

I don’t see this being true.

Neither do I.

I lol at DRones who forget that 21MP still makes Jumbo sized prints.

LOL! Ramon, I'm really appreciating your humor, lately!

I remember just ten years ago seeing a fellow photographer with a red ring on his lens usually meant he was a pro or a serious hobbyist.  Today you see L series lenses on half the bodies (and almost 100% of FF cameras) and someone with a big white lens very frequently

I usually don't dabble in reading about DR test charts and viewing blownup 35mm 40x60"s with a loupe. Sorry if I don't fit into that version of "Informed". I didn't mean offend you with my comment, It wasn't directed at you. :P

I'm sorry myself, my post was more aggressive than intended :-\ ... all I wanted to say that "you don't need more than [insert mp number here] resolution" or "you don't need more than [insert dr value here]" are very subjective and there are good and valid applications for more dr and more resolution (macro / cropping from the same source / aspect ratio change!).

The "return of invest" of higher specs is falling, 12->18 mp was more important than 16->24 mp, same with dr, but imho we're not at the stage where people wishing for better specs don't make sense can be called out of their minds right away...

They can sell a lot of $6000-$7000 cameras to enthusiasts, $10,000+ is harder to do.

Don't professionals use cameras any more, or are professional photographers now so poorly paid that the really nice gear is for the rich hobbyist?  ???

I think there's a lot more truth to that statement than most would think.

So whats changed?

Is it that digital photography has made it easier and less expensive to enjoy photography?

Is it that it is now easier to share your results (flickr via iphone for example, rather than carrying round a printed portfolio) and show everybody what a clever and talented person you are?

10 years ago I worked in what was probably Glasgows busiest specialist camera shop, the 300D was all the rage but even then, even serious enthusiasts were buying bridge cameras like the Minolta Dimage 7, or Nikon 5800, selling anything better than a D70 or 300D was quite a notable day.

From what I can see from the current market bodies have generally became less expensive, much less expensive at the low end, but lens prices have remained pretty static (in line with inflation) so is it when folk graduate from a rebel they want the better lenses?

When I worked in camera retail, every picture a customer showed me was 'brilliant' 'that could be an athena poster', if they had anything better than a rebel I would refer to 'professionals like yourself'...

It taught me that photographers are nothing if not vain.  In actual fact the professionals went to Calumet and most of the crap customers showed me was truely dire.  But I got good sales.

Now that monster 75 MP - it most probably will be a 44 MP for real. Having that amazing focusing system.... now we are talking. I am looking forward for the ISO improvements though.

The Dual Pixel CMOS AF splits every single pixel into two photodiodes, so it looks to me it is a 44.7MP with 44.7x2x3 million photodiodes (x2 for dual pixel, x3 for 3 colors).

Looking at the 70D sensor of 20.2MP and taking into account the 1.6x crop factor, Canon could reach 51.7MP with the same tech as for the 70D.

So 44.7MP with Dual Pixel tech shall not be too complex to bring to the market in terms of sensor technology. This year for the C series and maybe next year for the rest of the line.
