One novelty is separate switch photo/movie mode on right to viewfinder. I don't think there were any switches like that before in Canon DLSR

Check the back of a 7D...
EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses

7D has that switch too  ::)

Yep... I also see a MFN button which I want... So no flash... I hope it has an IR flash commander...

I was checking out the LCD screen.  Looks like zooming on an image is done with the top wheel.  This is a big departure from the 7D which had dedicated zoom buttons.

Is he really carrying a 5D III + 1D X + 600 II + 200-400 1.4?
a little bit too obtrusiv.

but it might be a sign from canon: they might be ready to drop the 500 II and 600 II as well as the 200-400 soon :)
Combine that with the announcement of a fancy 5DII and they have all the attention they need.
7D - BG
3 Ls - 1 EF - 2 EF-s - 2 M42s
430EX II - YN560-III

don't think it's a 7DMkII, it seems a bit larger to me, which should indicate FF.

screen does not look 4x3...looks like a 16x9 or 16x10. For comparison:

The body attached to the 200-400 is the 1D X.  This makes it likely this guy has the 5D III as well.  Lucky guy.

Naw... when you blow up the pic you can see the blue + and - with magnifying glass where it always has been.

The center lock on the mode dial seems to be inherited from the 60D.
The "Canon" brand is positioned below the LCD, just like on the 7D and 1D IV, but on the 5D II it's on the edge.

The body in the second picture is a 1D X by the way.  (edit: nicely spotted, Joes Dad)

One novelty is separate switch photo/movie mode on right to viewfinder. I don't think there were any switches like that before in Canon DLSR :)
The 7D has one.

Not related to the subject of the images but looking at the EXIF the camera is identified as a 1DS3 but the original resolution is 6,144 × 4,096. Not 1Ds3 resolution. Fishy?
