A small jumpstick on the battery grip makes sense - it will replicate functions for use in portrait mode.  I guess I need to save a few more dollars now that we have some better idea of what this is going to be like.  How come nobody has suggested that their new patented BSI full frame sensor won't make it into the new 5D?

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.

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).

Very nice detective work indeed over the last 19 page of post here!  I too like the idea this could be the EOS movie camera with the form of the LCD display.  Could this mean they might announced it before a 5D mkIII though?
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

Any guesses as to the price of the new 200-400?  It looks like a nature photographer's sweet spot tool.

This may sound stupid, however, why would an EOS Movie prototype be out for testing on a Kenya Safari shoot? ???

Making a film about wild animal!  ;)

Joking aside, you have a valid point here tooslick2k...

Last time I was in Africa, I noticed that most of the animals, including the Big Five, were capable of movement - and demonstrated that capability often. So, why not motion pictures of them?  That's a novel idea - someone should really consider a documentary film about African wildlife, nothing like that has been done, has it?   ::)
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

Probably around 7 or 8 grand, similar to the price of the Nikon variant.

My bets are on its an EOS Movie targeted camera(locking mode wheel so it won't switch off manual accidently when shooting video, the movie/live view button, the lacking CA mode on the dial indicating its not geared towards consumers)
The camera is still a DSLR, so it would make sense to make sure it works well when taking photos. He could also be testing how shooting with a widescreen aspect ratio screen in portrait mode is like and if it feels right or if it's to awkward to use.
Also the new buttons on the left side of the screen looks interesting)

This is so entertaining! :D

My vote from from the comparisons leans towards a 7D II

I now vote for a 5DX!  Darn you are right lbloom this is so exciting.  We finally have something more concrete to go on!!!

Bring it on Canon!

Exciting indeed. I like the sound of a 5DX, just sounds more sophisticated, hopefully it will be just as good as it sounds!  ;D

what if this camera was neither 5dmk3 or 7dm2 but in fact a 5dx
Personally I think a lot of people would love a full frame 7d and hopefully this new camera will be it, I don't care what they call it as long as it's a beast!  ;D

This makes sense to me. A merging of the 7D and 5D lines. Hope it doesn't share the 1Dx's 18mpx sensor, but I fear it might.

Or...

It could be a 7DX. Full frame version of the popular 7D. Same sensor as 1Dx. Less rugged. Small body. Lower fps (8 vs 1Dx 12/14).

Reserving room for the C to be the true movie successor and a 5D3 to be the high megapixel monster to compete with Nikon's 36mpx offering.

Nothing about the pictures looks like a video shoot, no tripods, no stabilization, guy is always looking through the viewfinder, etc.  I think stills when I think of a safari. 
5DIII/5DII/Bunch of L's and ZE's, currently rearranging.

The good news Canon 5d mk3 is scheduled for release on Feb 9th in Australia. The bad news is they have kept the S___ty AF system
