All the specs really look great, the only thing that I am a bit upset about is the price -  $3500 seems high for the body only. I was expecting it to be a 20% increase from $2400 for the 5D2 to $2899 (max $3000) for the 5D3.

Let's hope that it's not $3500 body only!

$3.5k does sound a bit harsh . . . I hope it isn't the body as well, but who knows.  All I can say is that if it IS that much I am SO jazzed I pulled the trigger on the 5dMK ii price drop.

well, if the spec turns out to be true, and the AF is on-a-par with the 1D4, then I'll be getting one of those rather than a 1D X

So an extra $1500 for improved AF...wow

To paraphrase the MasterCard commercial: Extra card slot, $100.  Full-coverage viewfinder, $200.  Most of your images properly in focus, priceless.

Speaking for myself, I was willing to pay thousands extra for the 1D X to get top-notch AF.  If I only have to pay $1500, it's a bargain.

Nice paraphrase from master card!

Well $3500 seems on the high side of estimates and seeing as the D700 was always more expensive I would have hoped the price would have stayed lower.  The D800 is being sold for £2600 (Nikon roadshow) I would have expected the UK price to be closer to £2400.

Is the ISO range convergent with former posts: 100-25600 and 1042k as highest extension?

I would expect $3,500 for body only.  Also compare it to the 1Dx.  With more MP, same AF, etc, you are getting a lot of the features of the 1Dx for just over half the price.  ~1/3 of the price wouldn't make sense.

BTW, if the rest of the recent rumors are true, you are looking at faster fps, another stop or so of ISO performance and I am hoping for better DR as well.

The yen is currently about 45-50% stronger than it was when the 5D2 launched.

Finally!!!!  Specs are exactly what I want.  I'm not surprised at the price and probably body only price - fine with me.  More details next week will be very interesting.  I'm not counting on availability till August/September which is ok by me.

No mention of ISO in the specs yet... For a 22mp camera, I expect very good high ISO performance and DR... especially for that price. $3500 sounds a bit high, considering D800 is only $3000?

The price is higher than I expected too but I think you have to keep several things in mind:

1. Strength of the yen
2. Originally, the 5D Mark II was $2,699 (wasn't it?)
3. How many people have said "just give me pro-level AF and I would gladly pay more!"

I seriously doubt that this camera will be on the market in rip-off-britain for much less than £3000, possibly even matching the $ price in Sterling...

And I have a feeling that this this camera will be a step up compared to the 5D2

Why would you think otherwise? This camera is 75% expensive from the current model and is competing against $3000 d800.

Current exchange rate for British Pound to USD is $1.567.  As a result, $3500 USD is less than £2400 (USD equiv = $3700).  I'm not at all surprised at this price.
