Usually (not always) in order to show the reach I am thinking they may need to use their crop.
Also since 1DX abandoned the pro crop line ie APS-H I am thinking for London Olympics Canon needs a new crop (a better one than what is in their line up now) to fill the gap?

PS: I want it to be 5DMK3 still (will never buy a crop again after using my 5DC and 5DII)

Who says this won't focus as fast or faster and better than the 7D?

I've ascertained from the picture of the LCD display of the bird that this prototype camera has at least 100MP!  This is based on the following assumptions:

1. the LCD has at least a pixel count of the 7D  (921,600 pixels) and has approximate dimensions of 1174 x 785 pixels (3:2)
2. the professional Canon photographer is not a pixel peeper (he's not viewing at over 1:1)

My calculations are based on the small box showing that approximately 1/7th- 1/8th of image's narrow edge is being displayed which would put the resolution at least 12327 x 8218 or 101,303,286 total pixels.

The battery grip is not integrated, the dented thing under the LCD is the attachment screw between body and grip

I think is integrated

Well, no, it's not.  But if you think it's integrated, what do you think that knurled thumbwheel on the grip with "lock" printed next to it will unlock if turned in the direction opposite the arrow?

That moves the Island. :P

From FM, someone says they were told:

18.1 Megapixel full frame -CMOS-sensor
6.3 fps
100% viewfinder
100,000 pixel RGB AE
iFCL
100-51200 ISO
19 cross type AF-system (with DIGIC 4 co-processor)
Full-HD EOS-movie (1080p)
single DIGIC 5+ processor (and DIGIC 4 co-processor)
3.2 inch Clear View II LCD 1040k dots
mini HDMI
LP-E6 1800mAh
2899$ intro


That sounds entirely reasonably actually. 18MP vs 32MP is a bit of a shame but I guess they need to leave something for the 5DX Mark II in a few years (or maybe a more expensive 5DX+ in a year, same as 5DX but with dual-digic 5+ and 32MP ???).

Edit - didn't realize the RAW being mentioned was just a 1Ds III RAW.  In any case, I think that Canon definitely has changed their stance on leaks - the Canon employee's attitude certainly puts a poke in the eye of sites that are abiding by the NDA, but people get pretty excited by the sight of new lenses, and in this case Canon still has control over the opinions out there, by controlling the facts that can be gathered (previews could signal the lenses and camera are "just okay" or "great, but not worth it in these troubled times," whereas you can't say that with just a picture of the item in action) .

Very interesting times.  I wonder if we'll be able to recognize any photos from the Kenya shoot in the upcoming camera manuals?

100,000 pixel RGB AE
iFCL

The 100,000 pixel RGB AE sensor is a 1D X innovation, which they've named iSA, whereas iFCL refers to the older 63-zone metering system (color and luminance sensitive, not full RGB), found in the 7D. Two generations of metering systems in the same camera?  Bob lied. Or maybe my 3rd grade teacher.  Someone. BS.

I'd just like to point out that this is being posted by somebody with skin in the game, who would have respected the Canon engineer's wishes if he had asked them not to leak the information out of respect (though that would've reflected sloppiness on Canon's part, so their honesty is refreshing and our respect well-deserved in this matter).  We have gotten pretty used to the "father's brother's cousin's nephew's former roommate" rumor mongering without anybody having any skin in the game besides CR.  So CR Guy does pretty well sorting out the true and the false so we don't have to, but this is a totally different thing altogether.

Does it matter that somebody had to leak the Nikon D800 (supposedly, still) with missing labels and so on?  Not really, that's just business as usual.  Of course you have to consider the possibility that Canon had considered (even perhaps wanted) these photos could leak, and of course they have greater control over what's going to be said, because news outlets are under NDA and all we see are a couple pretty lenses and a nice-looking camera - no hesitant sentences in a preview to mull over.  It looks good overall, however.

Who knows, we'll, sometimes a weird thing like that is put in as the person tries to protect themselves while leaking.

Although, I do see they left out the frozen donkey wheel for time travel, so perhaps you are right. Not credible.

I posted on another thread, but will ask the question here as well: if the autofocus is the only major upgrade, is that enough for people to buy the 5DIII?

Put the 1Ds3 AF in the 7D and there would be no point in the 7D except the crop ;) ;) ;)
