doubting Thomas, haven't heard that one. i called bs on the 16-18mp full frame and i was wrong, not going to change name though...

certainly wont be buying this camera though (wouldn't have anyway at $7000)

i don't think 18mp is enough. Storage is dirt cheap why not have more mega pixels

Indeed, +1! The specifications seemed a little bit unusual but it's a new line, and you showed it to us before Canon.

Keep up with the site!

Craig just proved that he has a better source(s) than PB, NL (who doubted the CR3 rumor as late as yesterday), and all the self-proclaimed experts on the DPR forum. Hats off to you sir.  8)

Good job indeed by CanonRumors.

But I must say Canon also did a FANTASTIC job in preventing news leakage until several days before the actual announcement. In contrast, we already know the D800 specs way, way before its actual announcement which has been delayed due to the Thailand floods. :)

To be fair, CR also received news from 7 to 8 folks who claim "there will be no new DSLR in 2011."

Oh, look what just got announced? :)

That's what's tough, technically there will be no DSLR in 2011... however it WAS announced. I may have to read between the lines better.

Still correct, since this was a paper launch for a product that would only be available 5 months hence.

When Apple-watching got popular (after the iPad was released), it suddenly became cool to be a rumor guru and everyone with a twitter account became a part-time tipster. 

There is no age, IQ, experience, or even grammar :D filter on the internet and anyone can send an e-mail.

2011 has been Canon's turn for immature (err amateur) sources for rumors, so your BS meter has to be on at all times.  This has always been my favorite place to read about Canon, and you can see this last year about all the crap that had to be sifted through just for basic tidbits . . .

In the end, trusted sources are where the real information comes from, and they only open up under certain circumstances.  Everyone else just talks when there's nothing going on  . . . and eventually someone gets clever and makes up lies.

Thanks for filtering for us CR.

Canon Rumors is presently creating photographer shortages in Middle Earth (all the trolls emigrated here)

I'm not much for handing out kudo's to a rumor site for getting some information correct.  And I'm also not much for hammering on a rumor site for mucking it up either.  Both have happened here on CR recently.

In a world where praise is all too often given for mediocre accomplishments, my proclivity is to reserve recognition for those extra-ordinary efforts. 

The only effort in the immediate subject was to post some information given to someone by someone and call it CR3.

The true kudo should be for running the site and giving us all a place to come and share our thoughts and passions about photography and...rumors.
