5D3 is not getting announced, this is a video only event. The 5D3 is a photography camera... not a camera entended for Hollywood.

Probanly... But the 5D2 was THE video DSLR... I wouldn't wonder if they palce the MkIII as a kind of bridge between video and photo market...

Very few replies here for an 'historic' Canon announcement!
Well, 16,000 bucks is a little bit out of my budghet...
Wait and see what the other camera costs.....

I'm more interested in the label on that second camera and am still hoping for a 5D3...

You're probably right that it won't be a "5D3" but there could be a video optimized pro-level DSLR form factor camera announced.

Not that there is any rule that says Canon can't announce anything they want and could certainly add "one more thing" if they wanted to.

By the way, the Q&A just started, and the list price is 20k, not 16, as the DVinfo article stated.

I agree that the 5D3 could be the bridge but I just don't see them announcing it today along side with it. They'll save it for the photographer event (Photokina).

Well... But they HAVE to say something about this "phantom" camera on the picture... Canon wouldn't be so stupid to  publish such a photo without knowing exactly what they are doing... The phantom camera ist definitley PLACED there and not just "be" there by mistake.

So I guess we have to wonder what the DSLR is packing.

Next big question though... will it be a lower resolution sensor (i.e. less than 21MP) with the justification it's optimized for video?

Almost certainly. Perhaps even the 1D X sensor as a 1D C...
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

Not sure about "stupid" but wow what a huge teaser if they don't even mention it!  Rumor boards will be abuzz until they address that second camera in the photos.

Maybe that's what they want... if anything they'll just tease about it at the end.

Any ideas if the lenses will AF on a traditional DSLR?

I'm sure they did it on purpose... I'm sure the canon marketing guys are smart enough not to do something like that by accident...

So why is this camera 2X as expensive as the 1Dx when the output is the same essentially?

I doubt it. Why would they, they are designed for use with a camera that doesn't have built-in auto focus.

Why would they
Well, a 14-60mm 2.6 would be awsome on a 5D...

Even without AF, it would be. It would be Canon's first sub 2.8 (and this is T/2.6, which is better than F/2.6) zoom lens for the EF mount; that's pretty neat, and it covers an incredible zoom range for a full frame body.
