Personally, I'm curious about the RATE button.

1) On-the-fly image rating during in-camera review?  I'd think that was silly and something photographers would never use, and so Canon would never waste space with a button like that.  But then I remembered the Direct Print button....

2) Video frame rate.  Despite the mockup of the 1-series-looking Cinema dSLR pictured with the C 300, the 5DII's form factor is likely an advantage for a video production.  Could there be a red C on the front of this unknown body?  (Or simply evidence of a video-oriented 5DIII?)

Given the label on the "Rate" button is in blue text, I'm guessing it's #1.

Also note that the top LCDs on both 1D X and 1D IV do not have the dual card icon though.

Yeah, but that's only because they have the back LCD to devote to that.  Either way, I think it's safe to assume that whatever that camera is, it will have dual storage of some kind!  :D

Say it with me - XQD...   8)

Although it could also be Dual SDXC Cards.

Not a popular choice for many but the format is cheap enough.
Yes, i shoot video on a DSLR.

I have to say - this is looking less like a 5DII replacement and more like a 3D/4D/6D/etc. - something in the $4K price range, not a $2.5-3K 5DIII.

screen does not look 4x3...looks like a 16x9 or 16x10. [...]

Any chance that we're looking at a video specific model? Otherwise I'm not sure who would benefit from a 16:9 type screen. I hope that's not becoming part of the brave new world with all the 3D-LCD TV hype. Still can't really stand the format for PCs, especially laptops.

Maybe anyone shooting video on that camera.  The 5D2 was wildly popular for video, the 1DX and the development 4K DSLR will be higher priced than the 5D3 (most likely), so there's a good chance the 5D3 will remain very popular for video, hence a widescreen LCD would be useful?

Or they price the 5D3 at $4k and keep the 5D2 in production a while longer?  I don't generally prescribe to such theories but it's not impossible if the 5D3 is to initially be priced high.

Since there is so much speculation as to the potential possibilities for this camera, a question ran through my mind.  Does anyone know how many prototypes Canon has developed over the years for different cameras that never ended up seeing the light of day in terms of full production after field testing?

just wondering, are these pictures showing one camera or different cameras? At the source page with all the pictures of the camera, there is pictures of the battery grip with the joystick and one with an lcd screen on the grip, one with a mode dial on the left and one with no mode dial on the left thats replaced with 3 buttons? just wondering if anyone else saw that

Two different bodies.  One is a 1DX.   The other is clearly a new body.

Yep. If you look back over the previous 17 (!) pages, you'll see that several people have 'discovered' that there are two different cameras pictured (seemingly the 1D X and this new prototype).

It could very well be a EOS Movie prototype.  I'm sure they are out there. 

As to pricing of the 5D MK III, Nikon Rumors has a price estimate of $3K for the D800, which is where the D700 started.  I doubt that a 5D MK III will be far off this price.

Very nice thread indeed and very good news :) !

Just hope the new body will be out before my old ones give in..

Is it realistic to hope for shipping midsummer if an announcement comes in march?

Yes, is pertty obvious, there are not 1 but 2 new bodies, and they are very very diferent. The first have 1 lcd for images and 1 for settings. The second one (without grip) have 3 lcds. Seems to be the 4k DSLR. A video oriented full-frame.  The thisd lcd seem to be a redundant settings display to use with all the video rig mounted all around the camera making dificult to see the top one.
