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.

It looks like he is at a test-field, and then it would make a lot of sense to carry what he carries. It's not a soccer-dad, he's one of the select few with the trust of testing non-released Canon gear, NOW, the guy who took these pictures, well, he's not anymore.... ;D

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.

forget about the equipment, he's a lucky dude just to be able to go shoot on safari in Kenya

My "Lucky guy" remark was intended to capture your sentiment as well.  Paid to use top of the line equipement and travel to Kenya ... not a bad gig.

Yep... I also see a MFN button which I want... So no flash... I hope it has an IR flash commander...
Dear God no, not I/R, should be radio  :o

Cant be radio unless owner is able to set frequency as US, Europe and Asia use different bands

To me, the MFN button indicates the camera has AF area selection as it does on the 7D. If so, this would argue for it having enough AF points to make AF area selection desirable. Hooray!

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?

Not unless he changed it in the raw conversion or somewhere in the post processing..
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.

Hope your thoughts will become true ! I think that this could be a new 5D Mk III as there is no pop-up flash and bothe 7D and current 5D Mk II looks different.

Fingers crossed for new 5D Mk III ! Bring it on Canon !

Hummm...this lens look very sexy!  It is very exciting to finally see more and more info getting down to Graig about the 5D mkIII...let hope this puppy is right around the corner.

(wonder if the sensor has anything to do with the new sensor in the patent post Graig just put!?!?!)

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 :)
7D has that switch too  ::)
Yep, my mistake. ::)
Indeed that camera is very similar in layout to 7D, but there are many differences.
I don't count locking dial... I my memory serves me, it is possible to have 7D and 5D2 equipped with such dial.

Hmmm... 5D3 or 7D2 without pop-up flash and (CA) mode on dial....
