March 2 will be the date for the 5D replacement.

...Yet it's not sure whether it's called a 5D mk3 or a 5D X?
Also, the word "replacement" is used here - has there been any clarity yet on whether it's going to be a replacement for the 5D mk2 at all? (i.e. the 5D mk2 not being discontinued?)

Is there any word on the battery the new camera will use? There will be a lot of pissed people if they make this camera with a new battery design,  think of all those video people that have banks of batteries.

new japanese regulations regarding batteries will force canon to do what nikon did: new battery designs. expect it. deal with it.

NDA date makes a bit more sense now!
Only a week to go, and maybe a look see at Focus on Sunday :)

Is that for exported goods or just goods for sale in Japan?

In Japan only I think! You still can buy d700 outside Japan. D700 was discontinued in Japan because of the battery issue, but I haven't seen any report of Canon 's products regarding to this issue, so I think canon's batteries are fine with the new regulations

Yes, Nikon can no longer sell the D700 in Japan, but Canon can still sell the 5DII, so the LP-E6 design meets the new safety standards.  The LP-E4 for the 1-series does not, which is why the 1D X will ship with the LP-E4N, but Canon was able to design it so the old LP-E4 will still work in the new 1D X.
EOS 1D X, EOS M2, lots of lenses

I sure hope that Canon will stick with LP-E6 with the new 5D. I'll continue to use my 7D/60D with the new 5D and I have a bunch of LP-E6 batteries.

Just in case canon change the battery from LP-E6, can i switch to Nikon at least then?
(yes, that would be an awesome reason)

Now, that's a valid reason to make a switch. ;D

Seriously though, we all would have no option if Canon changes the battery pack for the new 5D, but it'd be nice if they stick with the old LP-E6.

yeah, even if there is an option, just like in 1D X, it will be a huge plus.. here's to hoping :)

Reading the posts in this thread and other links provided I'm convinced the next 5D will be called 5DX, will have 22 mp, pro AF and great image quality both at low ISOs and high ISOs.
I hope they will have the multicontroller on the grip as in the posted images from Kenya. This is a must have feature for me personally. I can't tell you have many time i've cursed my 5d mark ii for not having that. Best way to change the focus point with the grip on and holding the camera in portrait orientation.
Can't wait for March 2nd!

Please, tell me with what camera do you have trouble getting quality images at low ISO settings?  I can't think of one camera in Canon's current lineup that produces bad images at low ISOs.
