* Compact Super 35mm sensor video camera

* Records onto CompactFlash

* 3 accompanying lenses

Just a reminder that I’ll be live at Planet5D for a conversation with @PlanetMitch.

May be a bad sign for those wanting a quick 5D3 release or for those hoping that Canon video division won't try to cripple on DSLR video, IMO. Depends a bit on the pricing though as per the first item (quick 5D3 release) and whether they feel it takes the pressure fully off of that or not.

With how long Canon have delayed the 1Ds4 and considering that they appear to be ready to delay the three year 5 series cycle I think they better realize they need to knock it out of the park and not make it seem like they are holding anything back otherwise forums and perhaps even sales this time are going to explode on them. 5 series needs some degree of speed and full on 1 series AF. It's about you could buy a camera with top AF from Canon without being forced into a brick.

chito:
Will they be EF lenses at least?

Just like Sony did :( GH2 still remains the only real HD camera

The Canon EOS cameras are produced by the camera division, not the video division and divisions within big companies like Canon compete with each other to bring in the best results. Think of each division have its own "CEO" that wants to deliver the best results so that he can be seen to be eligible for being the CEO of Canon.

What you should be thinking about is how much each feature costs to put in a camera.

Some features, for example uncompressed 1080p/i video on the HDMI output, might simple be too expensive or require sacrifices in other areas of camera design that are more important for the 5D.

Maybe ... just maybe ... the 7 to 8 year period from 2002/2003 through to 2010 was an anomaly in terms of digital camera design for Canon/Nikon. Maybe it was a period during which they managed to solve all of the easy problems and going further from where they are now requires solving harder problems that take longer.

The product life cycle for SLRs prior to DSLRs was quite different. For example, the EOS 50 lasted 5 years - 1995 to 2000, when it was replaced by the EOS 30, which was in turn replaced by the EOS 33V in 2004.

The higher end the product, the less frequently it has was replaced:
