The rumor sounds pretty credible to me. Canon always want to keep up with Nikon and vice versa and I can't imagine they would give the megapixel crown to Nikon after having it for so long (D3x excluded on price ;)

That 45 megapixel though - if you divide by 1.6^2 you get 17.57MP which is a tad less than 18MP which is what you get on the 7D. Thus the pixel density would be very similar to the 7D - just a bit under. I actually dislike the 7D image quality with a passion as I bought one and shot with plenty of L glass and the noise is horrible even at base ISO100 compared to my 5DMarkII. Other people like the 7D and if you're one of them then I'm happy for you. For me though I'm not touching a camera with that kind of pixel density with a 40-foot pole. If I ever want 40MP I'll buy a Pentax 645D and give those megapixels the space they really need. I don't want to spend my days in Lightroom and Photoshop adjusting the noise reduction sliders (landscape) or using blur tools to soften bokeh areas (portrait).

That 5DMarkIII - wow that is right up my alley! I so so hope it is spec'ed like that and be the cheaper of the two.
 
61 points AF! I hope they have X-type sensors left and right and they are spread out! please! 5D2 has 9 AF points but I can only rely on one of them - the centre. So it's not the sheer # of AF points - it's the usable ones that count. Give me a grid of say 19 x-type sensors (like the 7D) spread out and I'll be very very happy.

The 6.9 FPS. Wow that will blow me away after being used to 3.9. Sports pros would scoff with their 1Dx's but it's a huge improvement for me.

22MP - ooh yeah I think 18-24MP range is the sweetest range for pixel density in full frame cameras.

I'd happily buy the 1Dx except I don't want to have to lug that portrait grip on my big overnight hikes, so essentially I'm after something smaller and just as rugged.

Things that are missing from this spec sheet is WEATHER SEALING.   I'd be p1ssed if the 5Dx gets all the shoot-all-day-in-the-rain weather sealing and the 5DIII doesn't. I hope Canon seal them both right up. I'd happily pay and extra $500 or more for decent weather sealing!

The 5Diii would be just fine for me. Make it 2900 then.

But sensorwise, without too much of knowledge about it I'd keep to Keith's comment over at NL:
"I'm minded to think that if this were so, then Canon would use a derivative of the 18MP 1DX sensor rather than another new FF one (18/45 is likely less development effort than 18/22/45)"

well, time will tell. 51k ISO surely won't look bad. Dream cam for me.

I hope the MP monster has better IQ than the 7D aka 18MP crops, that would be disapointing to say the least
hopefully they have refined the tech in recent years to get better sharpness out of them maybe removing the AA filter like the D800E. fingers crossed.

This is excellent, best way to do it, IMO. They'll capture all of the disappointed D800 customers too. Awesome, Canon. Let's do it!

Hey everyone, I'm gonna try something new here, no rumors, no guess and no jokes like "18-55 F/3,5-5,6 L IS" :D
Instead, just a really down-to-earth question for you pros of Canon items ... I'm a happy owner of 7D who wants to go FullFrame for his GREAT road trip of August month, do you think I have a chance to own the 5DmkIII until then, or shall I go right now with the 5DmkII 'cos mkIII is just a chimera ??
Thanks buddies !

... Oh oh oh...

I rate this CR0!

Its bollocks.

if it would be like you say the names would be the other way... X for less MP (like the 1dx) and 5dIII for high Megapixel...

But... Its NOT like the Rumor says...

This is hilarious.  Insane D800 specs confirmed?  Canon fantasy wish list rumours updated to match.

I do hope its true. The high mp version would be my dream camera.

Its what I hope Canon will eventually do with the 1Dx, because its speciality means it will not suit everyone as it stands.

18MP Canon APS-C = 46MP FF (18 x 1.6^2) so we have One (1) entire MP to spare  8)

AND the sensor technology must have advanced enough in the past 3 years to make the ISO performance a bit better!  ;D

What I find suspicious is the "With a pixel size similar to the power shot G1X" comment in the rumor. Shouldn't it be like the 7D in pixel size?  ???

If the rumors are true, than Canon have did the smartest move. launching two 5d cameras ( one with very good ISO performance and one with high MP) will ''reconcile'' all canon users. Everybody will have the opinion to chose what they want: High MP or good ISO performance and speed.

I really hope that the rumors are true.

Fake :P

Hot shoe is black and no dial lock button  ;D

Also, the III in Mark III is clearly photoshoped! I know because I have seen a couple of these in my days! :)

I'm with you on that one! The 5DIII version with decent weather sealing would be my winner!
