The previous 20+ pages summed up:

"$3500?! INCONCEIVABLE!" - 23%
"Blah blah look at how much I make as a photographer, check me out dooods" - 17%
wild, pointless speculation on other features - 8%
"But the Nikon blahblah is sexier/cheaper/makes me coffee" - 18%
"I want a second hand MK2 / 7D for cheap / free" - 20%

Actual interest and discussion on awesome new features - 13%

YOU'RE WELCOME, INTERNET.

Whats the other 1% ?

Whoops, wrong forum :)

now this crown i'm sure will go to nikon

Five posts in, and this is the first where you're not actually specifically saying you're jumping ship.

Just do it, will you? Nobody cares about what you might or might not do if Canon doesn't build your own perfect personal camera.

Well suppose those specs are true.  It seems to me that you get most of a 1Dx for half the price.  61 pt AF, a few more megapixels, dual card slots.  Sounds like a true pro camera to me, not just prosumer.  IMO $3500 is not a bad price at all to start with.

Seems to me that, unless you need high fps or the extra build quality, there's really no need for the 1Dx.

If I were Canon I'd put in 19 point AF to distinguish the product lines more.  But I'm not Canon.

20+ pages in less than 24 hours... I smell the awesomeness of Canoners.

Anw, chill the crap out guys! Relax! $3500 is a RUMORED price, RUMORED. Even if it's this price, I'm pretty sure Canon has specs and such to justify it.
Less than a week to go to a long-awaited Canon breakthrough, so hold your horses and we'll see the announcement together with the price tag.

It's not about the money, money, money...  ::)

Did Peter Jackson release "the Hobbit" early, because there are a whole lot of trolls up in here lately.

Did anyone expect the best parts of the 1D series line for the price of a 7D? Really? Everyone was talking about how these specs weren't true because they would decrease 1dx sales... $3500 is exactly where I expected it to launch. Ask any sales person, and if a customer is comfortable at price $Z, then a good sales person wants to sell them $Z + X. There's a splurge factor on things we really really want. This sounds like a more well rounded camera than the mk ii or d800. Niche markets are great, but widespread appeal is often better. By Christmas, it will be $3100.

I am surprised everyone is so focused on the high price increase.  Has anyone been paying attention to food and commodity prices for the past 3+ years when the Mark 2 first hit the market?  You really shouldn't be surprised.  Inflation is rising rapidly.  Our US dollars are becoming useless.

Instead of complaining with your voice, use the most powerful tool you have and don't buy it if you feel it is too high.  If consumers stop placing so much demand on the markets, the markets have to eventually come down to what is feasible to the consumer.  Too many bitch and moan, yet go out and buy the product as though their business cannot still thrive without the latest and greatest gear. 

How did all of the great masters of photography thrive before all of these "great" gadgets and doohickeys?  They adapted to their abilities and mastered them.  How many of you even still use a lightmeter?

Spend your dollars wisely and you won't need to NEED any upgrade everytime a new "latest and greatest" model or piece comes out.  Shoot, I still use PS3, LR2 and shoot with the original 5D.  The only reason i ever upgrade is if something breaks or there is something that is more efficient and can make me more $$.

Master what you have and you will never have to worry about what the dude next to you has.

I think it's not the rumored price tag itself but the fact that Nikon has a better specification to a lower price that is the problem. If this specification is true 5D3 must be cheaper than D800.
Dude please  ::)

Can't believe everyone is getting so upset over a rumoured price. This is pretty much the exact spec I would like for a camera (shooting mostly weddings but also a bit of sports, live music, landscapes, etc etc). Not sure I'll be able to justify it for a little while yet.

Hope the high ISO is spectacular though - I often find myself shooting at high ISOs or pushing RAW files quite a way.

I really wonder how many people going on about the 36MP on a D800 would ever really make much use of it. Shot any ads to go on the side of buildings lately? Yes I know it helps with cropping and then making big prints, but I've made a beautiful looking 30"x20" print off a cropped shot on my 12MP Panasonic G1.

This reminds me of the D700 vs 5DII conversation. Everybody said 20MP was for billboards. I still don't know who actually even uses 20MP for other than cropping but I can accept studio and landscape guys want more detail because it is a good thing to have rather than to lack.

The way I see it, 22 MP is the new 12 and 36 is the new 22.

Yeah, but if you think a spec sheet is going to give you better images, you're in for a disappointment.

Words are cheap.

My pal Nigel Blake uses 1Ds Mk IIIs, primarily (and he has been very specific to me about this) because of the detail that 21 mps can capture.

The cropping advantage is a welcome addition, but the detail's the thing...
