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'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!

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

Canon EOS 5D Mark III Commercial:

The video and photos seem rather old. http://blog.dominikwoerner.com/die-canon-5d-mark-iii/

I'd certainly be disappointed with the ISO range if true. Same as the AF (since we were being spoiled with the possibility of 1DX AF showing up in 5DIII). Looks legit though. Like something Canon planned to announce back in October.

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.

Why not both MP and good ISO?  Seems D800 has both and it would not be hard to choose then.

And Canon should not put a simpler AF (from 1Dx) in the 5D follower, just use the same.

For me: 5D MKIII
And because of 6.9 fps, ISO 100-25600(50-51200)

The 5D X only excels on MP. I personally don't need that.
But I like higher ISO and the advantage of 6.9fps is great next to my 7D

If this rumor is true, hopefully it'll end all this crying posts ! And if that's true that's a smart move from Canon ;)

Splitting a line while merging another (1D series) doesn't seem very logical to me.
I'm sure we'll soon see 2 new DSLRs from Canon but I doubt they'll belong to the same line...

This is likely fake. A mere reaction to the d800 from fans. I believe the 22 mp 5diii. This 5dx stuff at 40 mp is a pipedream.

when i looked at this post i saw two cameras that look "incomplete". 5dx seems to have insufficient iso range, so noiseless night shots will become even harder to get, and the 5d3 seems to have great video, great af system, great iso range BUT with much less resolution. Therefore my conclusion is that the 5dx MUST get higher iso range if canon wants this model competitive.

What I don't get is, with the 1D X brand being marketed as "highest quality ISO, fast shooting speeds, lower pixel count, best video" the split mentioned here (of course it's a CR1) has the 1D X like camera getting a 5D III moniker, while the slower-shooting, high MP camera gets the X name...it seems inconsistent to me.

Something tells me this might just be an attempt to put names to two prototypes out there in the field, and nothing to do with the names we'll end up seeing in shipping units.

POOMA:
If they do that they will be repeating the D700, which I doubt they will. They will also be cannibalizing the 7D, I think.
Making a cheaper almost as good as the 1D X 5D is, well, I dunno, not clever. But then again, if you need the 1D X you'll probably get, on the other hand, with a bad economy many might actually get a 5D instead of forgoing an upgrade all together, because the 1D X is too expensive. Maybe it's really clever... ?!?!

if they were to split the 5d line, i actually wouldnt be terribly surprised, but certainly do not expect the naming scheme to be 5dmk3 and 5dx...

i think it makes more sense to have 1 version of the top of the line pro dslr and >1 versions of semi-pro FF bodies...

What's the point of a 45MP camera when its way above the resolving power of any Canon lens?
