Anyone else notice that the camera on the left in the group shot of all the new stuff is not the same as the C300 and it's NOT a 5D?  And has the same little light on it as the C300...Another cam on the way?

That'll be the 5D3... they'll announce it at the end as "oh, and just one more thing...".... woohoo bornshooter was right!!!

My thought exactly.  It looks like a standard DSLR; and they are going to say hey by the way we have the 5d-C have fun with that Nikon.

Or maybe it's a 1Dx.

Very few replies here for an 'historic' Canon announcement!

Guess this means that everyone is disappointed, but I think that this announcement is really what most people expected.  Personally, I have no clue about what most of this means or its implications.  As far as I can see, Canon seems to have entered the bottom end of the mainstream film making industry market, with a camera system that's still very expensive for the indie crowd. 

Am I right, or wrong? Wonder if anyone will be interested in the new lenses for stills photography!

Not a 1Dx.

1. It's too small to be a 1Dx.
2. The badge is red/purple; the 1Dx is black and white.

It could be anything else.

Meh

I thought that as well and looked real hard at the "red light" to see if it was just a reflection but it really does look like the "C" on the C 300.

Lenses... isn't this just going head to head with Zeiss Compact Primes?
Normal 35mm optics in a big shell and the cogs out for standard follow focus.  Zooms are new though

Tried to blow it up.. terrible quality though but you can still clearly see this isn't a C300!

These people don't have a clue. Once again we are given a consumer form factor. ZacutoRock will be happy -- they will sell a lot of cages, shoulder mount kits, etc.

Take a look at an Alexa or an Aaton 16mm film camera, among others. The view finder needs to up-front by the lens mount. The body shape is wrong, you need to be able to sit the camera on your shoulder, with-out add-ons.

Meh!!!
If they had done that all of the people that have spent thousands of dollars on DSLR video gear in the past few years would be SOL.

And it's in the foreground, not faded with all the other EOS lenses in the background.  It's clearly part of the cinema line, the badge is the same.  They also placed it so you might mistake it for just another C300.  Engadget just pointed it out also.

It looks pretty similar to a 5D2, but it has a vertical grip seemingly attached.

Edit: There is an additional button just to the left of pentaprism, and it does seem to look more like a 1d series.

That's a completely new DSLR, they just showed the EF and PL mount on the C300 bodies, completely different and new camera. New 5D replacement that right there.

I agree, they need something less than $16k for the prosumers

The three primes are 24 T/1.5, 50 T/1.3, and 85 T/1.3.  It is interesting how the 50 and 85 are slower than the standard L series EF lenses, especially for such an expensive camera. They better be good, and according to planet5d, they are sharper than the L's.

Edit: Apparently I didn't know T stops and F stops were different; thus, the new primes are better. I apologize.

Well, 16,000 bucks is a little bit out of my budget...

No they are T/1.5 and T/1.3.  T Stops and F Stops are different.  I cant remember the exact difference, but I know that T stops let in more light, but T/1.3 is superior to f/1.2 for sure.
