Yeah I am in the 18 MP-likely 5DMarkIII camp with earlier announce; but

I have been mulling over an evil thought that the 1DX is the "London" camera, timed more to happen when key sports photographers / publications are in buying mode for the 2012 Olympics.  And that the 5DMarkIII would come later in the year at a to-be-disclosed moderately higher MP.

I dunno.... Canon - give us a clue!  Even a 'careless' comment to help guide us in this windless ocean.

I'd imagine Photokina next year we should know a lot more. In the meantime - wouldn't the 650D announcement in only 2 months or so give us an indication of how scroogeworthy they'll be with the more prosumer -> high end lines below the 1DX?

Arkarch,

I reckon you calling the 1Dx the "London" or "Olympics" camera is exactly right. Its designed exclusively for the photojournalist/sports togs with no thought for the studio/landscape "fine art" users at all.

It's a lovely camera, just not for me.
