So, it is possible that 5dMIII will be announced in August but it will ship in December?

If announced at the end of August, or early September, it would likely be shipping in November.

If it's true, my plan will be ruined. I've planned to buy that at my hometown so I can get discount before moving to Singapore  :o

Unlike others, I'm all in favour of as many mp as possible.

Me too :-). I think 40 - 60 megapixels would be ideal for full-frame 36x24mm sensors. Past that the sensor is too small to support it well, and resolution will be higher than needed for most applications. I'd like to be able to produce pictures that can fill a book spread at glorious 400 ppi, which current full-frame cameras can't because resolution is too low. If you shoot detailed landscapes today you'd want a medium format system, which of course are way too expensive for hobbyists. Anyway 32 megapixels is a step in the right direction from my point of view.
or, you could do panoramic stitches and get whatever size you want.  :D

I need accurate data regarding the emergence of 6D or 5D mark iii  8) ... anyone know where I can get that information  ;D... and whether the calamity that struck the Japanese make the 5D mark iii delayed or dead?   :-\

Just email info@canon.com, or better yet, Fujio.Mitarai@canon.com.  I'm sure you'll get the accurate data you crave.  Be sure to let us know what you learn!

The thing that does not make sense to me about  the rumor that a 5D MKIII high resolution camera replacing the 1Ds MK IV (or whatever) is the weather sealing. Many pro nature & wildlife photographers comment about the excellence of the weather sealing of the 1D series of bodies. I even recall one comment about a photographer accidentally dunking his camera in the ocean, shaking it off (presumably drying the front element) and continuing shooting. Unless the 5D MK III has that level of weather sealing, I can not see that group of users being entirely pleased with it.

As far as MP count and resolution go, Jay Goodrich, posting on behalf of Art Wolfe, (April 13, 2011 entry http://blog.artwolfe.com/2009/01/equipment/ ) says that they print up to 30x40 inches using Photoshop (to size the image for printing) for images captured with Art's 1Ds MK III 21 MP camera. He also notes that Art used a tripod, cable release and sets the camera for mirror lock-up whenever possible.

I am certain that Canon will continue to increase the resolution of sensors, but it seems that, beyond about 24 MP, other considerations may attain greater influence. We shall see.

Okay, so now that we know what the 1D X has, what does that mean for the 5D Mark III?  Will the MP decrease?  (Is the megapixel war really over?)  Will the auto-focus and FPS improve?

Well, I guess it depends whether it will be a 5D X (whatever the X is there for) ::) - same sensor as 1D - we've had it before?
I think that plenty of readers here (if not the majority) would be happy with one DIGIC5, (+- one DIGIC4 for focusing on 20+ fields), same high ISO 51Tsd, 5-6 FPS and anywhere 18-25 MP (well more like 21-25 ;)). For 3000USD at max.
I am sad because of the release date March 2012. Seems like an eternity for me to jump onto a nextgen FF.
What next ? Are we in the dark for another 6 months until the next press release ?
Better start re-bonding to my old 40D again :'(

Let's see what New York and Hollywood will present to us... 8) Even if a 5Diii is due TBA next year...great times ahead folks...the shade a recently announced 1Dx is casting looks very promising! Cheers, Pedro.
