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

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.

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?

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?

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?   ::)

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
