I doubt if these will be above $3k!!! With the D800 now out, I can see the 5DX being aroun $3200-3500, but I think the 5DMk III would be below that...probably around $2700. at least that's what I would do if I were a product manager at Canon.

And why is that.

Looks like the Canon 5D MKIII will have

Better AF
Much Better ISO (25600 native versus 6400)
Double FPS
Video on par or better perhaps.

The only thing the D800 offers is large MP, which a lot of people don't want.

So compared to the current 5D MK II which sells around $2300 retail...

Much higher ISO
EXTREMELY Better AF
Faster FPS
and not sure what other bells and whistles are in there, but AF, FPS and ISO are each big improvement areas.

Darn, now this will cost me 2 new cameras instead of one cause I would want them both!  Wait, make that 3 since the 1DX is a given for me... :P :P :P :P :P

Canon, you will bleed me dry in 2012!  Not to mention a few more lens!  I LOVE IT!!!!!!!

That 5D Mark III seems like my dream camera. If that is a true spec list I will absolutely buy one.

45mp would be amazing for landscapes. I only hope that it has sRAW at sizes that would be ideal for weddings (15-18mp)

why shoot sRaw? just shoot raw and downsize.. I never understood shooting at a quality less then your camera could provide..

If there was a 22mp/ 61pt AF/ 6.9fps camera cheaper than the 1D-X, who would buy the 1D??

Isn't the 5D line positioned as the $2-3,000.00 FF camera?

If there is this "split" I think it would be a smart move for Canon. Getting more of this market segment (since Nikon has chosen to only cater to the high MP crowd with their 2 versions of the D800). Satisfying the 2 types of buyers (high MP and high native ISO/low MP) . Without alienating either group. If those specs are accurate...I'll take 1 "5D3".

And to think...if you started as a "high ISO/low MP" shooter and later decided to do wedding photography/landscape/studio work...you'd have a choice...the 5DX....no need to buy a new set of lenses (if you were to jump ship and buy a Nikon D800).

Now if only Canon would already make the announcement.

If these specs would materialize, then probably instead of Canon rather some used Nikon gear would be available on sale. :)

The one thing I've been failing to understand with all the 5D replacement spec rumors is why a high MP camera (be it a single model or one of two) would have anything near pro-grade AF. Normally AF is a huge differentiating factor between lines and would pump the cost up quite a bit, but any camera with high MP is clearly being marketed to a studio/landscape/macro crowd in which AF performance is far less important.
The aerial photography crowd needs pro-grade AF along with high MP.  :)
Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.

Images would take up more space on memory cards, resulting in more memory card changes during a shoot. Images would take more time to download, then time spent downsampling and converting to a new file and erasing the original. Time is money...

Two cameras with different sensors or same sensors but different firmware?

If the 5D3 specs turns out true, looks like I know what to get as an upgrade to my 7D :)

Over £3k for these bodies?

Actually the post say over $3k for these bodies.

Putting that into the usual dollar to pound exchange rate used for electronic items gives..... er, ok. I guess over £3k  :-\
