I don't know why you can't have both...
a 5D3 with pro AF (not as good as the 1DX) high-ish mpx, dual card, 5 fps, FF of course...

and a 7D2 with the same AF (wider coverage, since it's aps-c), dual card, lower mpx than the 5D3 and 7-8 fps...

basically the same camera, the difference would be just the sensor.. that way you could satisfy both camps.

The difference of the 1DX and the 5D3 would be fps, megapixels (5D3 would have more), AF, high ISO performance and weather sealing...

what I'd really like is the fuji x-pro 1 sensor pixel pattern thing..  that would eliminate the need for the AA filter.. now that would be a real improvement (I know that it's impossible)

It better be a 5d Mark II , not a crossover, because if this is a crossover 5D/7D, it will completely ruin both cameras!!!

as long as it's not 1.6 crop body... I'm Fine.

BTW: Am I the only one wish AF in video mode from new 5d?

It seems very strange to me people actually think the 5d will have "pro-AF" or something of the sort, and 6-8 fps? And higher res? And you excpect not to pay for it, 2-3k range. Jeez...

Why would anyone buy the 1d X if the the "5dX" has 8 fps at 25 mp with one stop more noise and 7d AF???

If anyone would want to buy a 5d, then you better hope it doesn't have that stuff, because it would be MUCH more expensive than the curent 5d.

A fullframe 7d?! it's still called 1d X, they won't make a cheaper fast fps FF with great AF for half the price of an X.

7d with with aps-h sensor? The main group of people buying ef-s lenses are 7d owners. (At least from my experience working in a shop that sell this sort of stuff) And Canon wouldn't want to sacrifice all those lens-sales by making the ef-s's unusable on a 7d.

And if a 5d3 or 7d2 will get some very cool features not in the 1d X, I will be veryvery upset. The 7d made my mk4 look old when they introduced the new menu-layout, Q-button, zone AF, spot-af (with all lenses) and a dual-cross centerpoint.

I feel like when I'm buying a 7000 dollar camera, it should be top of the line in every aspect for at least two years. It should be dripping from the 1d to the 5d and 7d, not the other way around.

funny: the photographer is wearing some "GR digital" white and blue merchandise
GR Digital as in Ricoh's GR Digital or ...something else?
It surely has Greece's colors on it.
Who sells this merchandise?

What are the arguments for this being the 5D mkIII over a 7D mkII? It hasn't been a full three years since the 7D release, but I can see how the 7D might get refreshed early...

It's reasonable for Canon to have prototypes some while before the cycle is completed.

Way to early for a 7D Mk II in my opinion. Would I be correct in saying that it would be out of the ord for Canon to do this for the 7D so soon? Three years is not that long.

What will be interesting to watch is the Canon 5D MK II prices. I've just noticed that I can get one for £1438.80 at the moment which is a good price. Whats the bets you can knock £300-£400 off that in the next week or so.

Could be quite tempting for some.

I think focus in 2012 is Canon 1D-X and Canon 5D MKIII
They may consider an update for the 7D in 2013 with announcement in september (Photokina perhaps?)

Another thing that indicates it is a 5D3, if you look at the size of the optical viewfinder opening, the 5D's is slightly larger than the 7d's  ) relative to width of the Flash holder; on the mystery camera, it is more like the size of the 5D2/ FF.

In the attach pic, it's a crude approximation of the relative sizes of the view finder. & has the smallest, 5d2 is larger and mystery camera is as large as 5d2 (if not more), and visibly wider than 7d.


Thanks for the picture comparison, it made me look closer. But I cannot draw the same conclusion as you did. When brightening up the "mystery camera" picture, you see the edges of a smaller viewfinder than the 5D's inside the dark cutout - just like you see in the 7D picture you posted. On the 5D picture, there are no edges visible - only corners (inside the viewfinder). Now if you look at the mystery camera prototype and brighten it up, you do see edges - even though the camera is angled slightly to the side, you see full side edges on both sides. Note the blue spotted line.

To me, this still leans heavily towards the 7D.


I agree. It surely isn't a FF viewfinder.

Not read all 21 pages (seriously guys? no one here works?) But my guess is the RATE button will switch between frame rates quickly in movie mode. May be a sign there's more options....

Going by the placement (alongside review, delete, magnify etc.) I'd guess it more likely to be in the sense of rating images. Happy to be proved wrong though...

1DX also has a black cutout in the viewfinder.

IMHO, it's just one more button that could be reassigned to do something I really need. That's great! :)
