With all the fast (fps) cameras out there right now (10 fps, 24Mpix NEX-7, etc.) it would be unacceptable for Canon to release a lowish Mpix camera (22 Mpix) and a low fps rate... Me thinks...

Then comparing this rumor (we are talking rumors here)
of the other DSLR manufacturer's rumored 36 megapixel
camera . . .


i don´t believe it 100% yet thet the nikon will have 36 MP but i would really love to see that it HAS 36MP.
so we can compare spatial resolution from a 21/22mp camera and a 36 MP camera in real world scenarios.

preferably 4 stops.

yeah sure... lets make it 6 stops....  ::)

I couldn't care less about a MP increase from the 5D2. 21 or 22 MP is more than enough for most of us. And if today's rumoured specs are correct...I'll be mostly happy. I only still need to know about the "native ISO range" ("useable ISO"). Will the 5D3 have the native ISO range of the 1D-X (e.g. 100-51,200)? Would make me happy and a buyer. As I prefer to shoot in natural light w/o using a flash under very low-light sometimes. Like to have that ability.

Rumoured 61-point AF? Does this mean the 5D3 will have the same AF system as the 1D-X? WIth 41 cross-type.

And also important...I hope Canon doesn't make the same mistake Nikon is pricing their D800 models at $3000/$3900 (2 versions...one w/ AA and one w/o). Canon should keep the price around $2500 USD.

Hope Canon does announce the 5D3 on the 7th of Feb as also rumoured.

sorry im not up to date with NEX models but isn´t that 3,7 FPS continuous shooting?

edit: just checked...

Quote
The NEX-7 has two continuous drive modes, labelled 'Continuous Shooting' and 'Speed Priority Continuous'. The latter runs at a headline-grabbing 10 frames per second, although with focus fixed at the start of a burst and no live view feed. Meanwhile 'Continuous' runs at highly respectable speeds (reaching a maximum of 3.7fps if you fix focus manually) while still providing live view between frames - the fluidity of which is greatly improved by using the electronic front curtain shutter.

so you are the usual "PR victim" it seems ;)

That would be an awesome camera for wildlife! :D
Good Image Quality, fast and (hopefully) a great AF.
And the 7D II as second body + for added Range.

I really hope this is true. But to me it looks like a 1DX killer. Like the D700 and the D3S.

I do think 61-pt is somewhat of a stretch, but you never know.  He's been right many times before and has reliable sources and wouldn't CR2 this if he didn't think it was probable.  Everyone is saying these specs are unbelievable based on a price of $2500 (which I highly doubt will be the final cost).  But if the camera is $3000-$3500 it seems like it could be possible. 
5DIII/5DII/Bunch of L's and ZE's, currently rearranging.

If I put together everything I have heard, these are the specs of the 5D Mark III.
22mp
61pt AF
7.5fps (this I’ve only seen once)
DIGIC 5
New Battery Grip with Joystick
GPS Ready

I still believe we will see 2 different cameras coming. One with the above specs, called 7D Mark II OR a totally another camera, maybe 3D (1,3 Crop Factor?!).

And 5D Mark III with something like:
GPS Enabled
Less than 19 AF points
Eye control autofocus
5fps

As a landscape photographer primarily, I
can't see why I would want to upgrade
to this set of specs.

The 7.5 FPS might help me capture Green flashes
better, and get a few more bird flight moments,
but other than that I can't see a persuasive reason
to upgrade.

Then comparing this rumor (we are talking rumors here)
to the other DSLR manufacturer's rumored 36 megapixel
camera . . .

After capturing sunset images last eve and having
the backlit forest detail evaporate - I hope any 5d3
has seriously bigger dynamic range; at least 2 stops
please, preferably 4 stops.

That would catch my attention !

Thank you Canon.
YES. spot on on what I think.

btw. the more I read the rumors the more I am getting the impression that D800 and 5d3 have switched roles between Canon and Nikon.
D800 without AA? how can $3900 be wrong? isn't this supposed to be a strong competitor for MF? at $3900 it's a winner.

I just hope the roles are reversed on the DR side too.

With those spec, I think this would be a big winner for Canon.  I would assume with the new processor that we would also gain a bit on the ISO performance.  I am a bit dis-appointed if it not announced on Feb 7th for no other reason that I am so eager to get some new bodies and see how the new line will stack up against the new Nikon line-up...

It does seem more and more sure that the 5DmkIII will get a great AF system, much to the contrary of many of original assessment here - don't you guys love it when we are wrong!

I think I may be alone in thinking the majority of those 5D III specs are totally bogus. The 22mp sounds plausible, but 61pt AF and 7.5fps sound FAR more like wishful thinking or even someone trolling with rumors to see what kind of response they get. I don't think, logically, there is any way Canon would cut into 1D X sales by stuffing such an advanced AF system and high frame rate onto the 5D, which has classically been positioned for a very different market.

WISHFUL THINKING! I'll take the 22mp over 18mp, though.

Ironically, that's sort of why I think they won't, or if they do, it won't come close to the rumored spec list.  I can buy a 1D X...if they announce a 5DIII with more MP than the 1D X, same AF as the 1D X, nearly the frame rate of the 7D, and at half the cost of a 1D X, I would quite possibly buy the 5DIII instead, meaning less ¥ for Canon.  To me, that doesn't make fiscal sense for Canon...

I'm in the same boat exactly.  With these specs, Canon would have to know they are going to lose out on a lot of 1DX sales.  That makes me think either the specs are off, or Canon will price it in the $3800-4000 range.  Maybe at that price with those specs it would make up for the lost 1DX sales and actually make them a higher profit since there is so much demand for the 5DIII?

These specs are not that different from the 7D apart from the 22mp ff - did Canon worry about the 7d affecting the 1d4 sales?
