If anything, the 5D3 will be Nov 3rd...but I doubt it. Canon will launch some fancy ass video cameras, that is all with a 1Ds4 next week privately, the following week publicly.

The 1Ds is the oldest most out of date cameras (cosmetically speaking, it still takes the best pictures) so a new model is way overdue and will be replaced next.

Interesting ... from the magazine, looks like the 1D-series will stay split.

Only it bothers me a lot if Canon happens to introduce an FF 1D with 18MP, maybe one more time a cropper? In the light of the theoretical Nikon D4, that sounds like it will be less in ISO. That also begs the question, what happened to the DIGIC 5, such a poor improvement, only 2MP more per second?

Boy, this time Canon is pretty tight lipped about everything.

CR's been fishing like crazy and seems to have absolutely no clue! Been going back and forth between DSLR and no DSLR although off late, the hard line has been NO DSLR, up until the last 2 days that is...although CR does seem to be pretty confident about no 5Dmk3 this year....

BTW, not bashing CR! And I understand rumors and rumors and just that...rumors! CR has said that over and over. Just saying that Canon's doing a pretty good job with keeping it under the wraps!

And like CR said, no leaks probably means no release although I believe we will see a 1ds and a 5Dmk3 (or at least a 6D which would be a 5Dmk3 with trimmed features) before end of this year.

Who said that 18mp at 10fps would max out the abilities of DigicV? Which is what I assume you are implying.
Maybe it'll do 12fps, or be a single DigicV who knows. 18mp FF sounds perfect to me.

"18mp FF sounds perfect to me."

Yes, it does for most.

People into Landscapes (one of my interests), enlargements (niche) would love the large MPs though.

What is interesting is that the intro image is a 1Ds and on the inside pages they show the entire top of the line EOS range.

I wonder if Canon could blow everyone away by introducing all the new top flight EOS's in one go to celebrate the 25th anniversary.

If they did then I'd suggest that the 1Ds will be a mega-pixel still specialty camera.
The 1D a sports & high end video camera.
The 5 & 7D's will be what they are, top line prosumers with many of the EOS features, but I bet Canon won't let the 5's cannibalize the sales of the 1's again, so expect a proper step between them.

Just for the fun of taking a wild guess, 1Ds - 45MP stills only // 1D 25MP - APS-15fps & pro video // 5D - 30MP FF & pro video // 7D 18MP & HD video

Makes sense, i'd love that if it happened. 1ds and 5dmk2 would suit my kit perfectly.
