I believe most of us were fine with an incremental update until a few months ago. When D800 rumours came out, and the recent rumours about pro AF and metering in the 5DIII/X, I fear we have been hyped beyond recovery.

Anything Canon releases will get a lot of whines unless it matches the best specifications the rumours have pegged it at.

How unfortunate.

It will interesting to see if it has:

- increased DR
-1DX type metering to help jpeg shooting
If they could increase the DR to about 6, or even 8 stops...  :o

Or is it just wishful thinking to expect anything other than our current ~4 ish stops?

As long as it matches the D800 (except the high MP count), I'll be more than happy.

If the 4K body was this close to release then wouldnt it have made sense for Canon to show/tell more about it at the C300 launch? I got the impression that it was still some way away and was included only to counteract RED's release.

I would not be supprized if we see both a high MP and high ISO 5D body annouced(if not released) at the same time, one less big annoucement its true but also a chance to send more people away happy and steal more of Nikon's thunder.

Was the 1Dx formally anounced allready? I wouldn't be surprised if canon presented their final version of it before any 5D III/X anouncement.
Anyway keep it coming. Specs?
7D - BG
3 Ls - 2 EF-s - 2 M42s
430EX II - YN560-III

If they announce the 1dx AGAIN, people are going to be hilariously pissed.  :P

No.

That would have distracted people from focusing on the C300, which is a brand new camera/line of cameras.

10 days to go! These will be some of the slowest 10 days ever....

Another round of silly logic:

2+8 = 10 = X = 5DX announced  :P

If there is an Canon announcement of a 5D MkII replacement in the next few days it'll be one of the best kept secrets Canon have ever managed!  10 days  before the 5D MkII we knew virtually all the specs (despite a fog of wrong rumours) and yet all we seem to have is a very few hazy details.

So either they haven't actually decided which model to manufacture until the D800 reaction is fully considered, or maybe they have decided and this time are keeping it very secret, or alternatively the rumours are just wrong & there won't be a release on the 28th

This is obviously great news!  I do wonder just like Flake how come we dont have more solid info on the new camera less then two weeks before its announcement.  There is still uncertainty around mkIII versus an "X" version, the psec are fluctuating a bit...very interesting how different that is from the spec of the D800 which were pretty bang on months before its announcements.  I guess Canon is doing a good job this time around...
1DX, 24mm f1.4L II, 35mm f1.4L, 50mm f1.2L, 85mm f1.2L II, 135mm f2L, 24-70mm f2.8L II, 70-200mm f2.8L IS II :  D800, D4, and a whole bunch of Nikon lenses

It's interesting that the CR3 status only applies to an announcement of a camera body and not 'what camera body'.

I will not be disappointed with what ever they announce for the simple reason i have 2 5D2's that, apart from the AF niggle, are still more than adequate for my needs.

So if the announcement doesn't appeal to me - Canon won't be getting my money!

@picsfor: as there is at least one or two more, then maybe one of these will. Personally hoping for a baby 1Dx type of cam TBA soon...

If it uses the 1D4's AF system unchanged, it will cover a relatively smaller area on FF (unless they scale it up, in which case it wouldn't be the 1D4's system).
