And I thought my MK II was expensive at $799.  I bought it versus the Sony RX III because a 3X Zoom was not what I wanted for a walk around camera.

$511 for my new SL2 is looking better and better.  I bought a used 15-85 for it for $300.

The $1200 price astounds me.  I know that the dual pixel sensors cost more, but not that much more.

Makes me wonder who will buy this camera at this price point? the M5, M6 looks no brainier. Time alone will tell.

I concur...and wonder whether this camera should be supplied with a different name!

I was fiddling with the idea of one, but apparently I was a fool for thinking it would be much cheaper then that.

this would have to have like a 10X or more zoom for me to pay that much, i dont think any non-dslr except FF or the link should be over 100, unless it has something special

Does anybody seriously believe that price. To charge that amount of money the camera will have to be a quantum leap in improvement in so many areas it's not funny. When I also see talk of a rubbishly slow 24-70 f/5.6 lens, then either Canon is smoking crack or this pricing story is bogus. If it launches at that price it will die at that price, only die hard fan boys would shell out that amount IMO. I could believe $999, but there are a lot of good cameras for that money too.

I guess Sony wants $900 for their 1 in sensor, so a large sensor is worth more?  If this were FF the price would be tight.

In a previous thread I said how excited I was about this camera.... $1299 ?!?  Hell no.  If this is indeed the correct price in the USA then for the first time I truly believe Canon has made an error unless there is something drastiv we have missed.  I've got to assume that rumored price is not accurate... otherwise thats right off my list

Ok but can we drop the negativity in the comment section below??

The camera will have a better screen and navigation than you will ever find on a Sony/fuji.
If the camera has the rumored 15-43mm F2-4 and aspherical elements lens,
It be on par sharpness wise with the Canon efm 15-45mm kit.
There will finally be a faster APS-C wide angle option, so replaces your efs 10-18mm and efm 11-22 ,
will be as fast as the 24mm F2.8 on a rebel dslr. And compared to the EFM 22 will be stabilized. And the lens will be faster than any other kit lens that is provided by the other mfg, so you can forget about the latest small 18-55mm F4-5.6 kitlens as well. Even if you had considers the 17-40mm L for your crop, this can replace everything. Next to that, while the lens is stuck, you do not have to worry all that much about dust and sensor cleaning.

So let me do the calculation for you:
EFM 15-45mm kit : 200$
EFS 10-18mm : 150$
EFS 24mm : 80$
EFM 22mm : 150$
EFM 11-22mm : 350$
EFS 18-55mm : 80$
EF 17-40mmL : 600$

Total: 1610$. That is a lot money to be saved!

Add that with a hotshot, lens IS, internal ND filter and leave shutter and some digital IS and you have a killer option.

Same thing could happen as with the original M. No one bought it and finally they had to clear them out through BH at 1/3 original price (when I bought mine).

I was expecting this camera but I'm definitively not ready to put this price, even 999 seems too high.
I'm really wondering how they could reach this price, 4K, 8K, L lense,  excellent DR ???

Side consideration: PSC-6300 is the dedicated soft case.

you are missing Canon EF 200-400mm f/4L IS USM Extender 1.4X from your list. There! the total savings is now, what $12,610??  bargain...
