All this talk is of no new high end camera from Canon, and the evidence of the total lack of sales (and supply) of the 1Ds Mklll, does seem to point to the end of the era of the 35mm style pro still camera. The market has spoken, and Canon have listed. Video and streaming content are the new rage, pro-sumers want their video and vimeo, and seemingly lower pixel counts stills. They have no interest in making exhibition sized prints, online distribution and sharing is the new king.
I will be interested to see what this big departure for Canon is, but my guess remains that it'll be a head on Red competitor. I suspect that the very few of us who either need or want super large still image files may never find it in the 35mm form factor, which personally I find a great shame. I really love using the EOS line, having worked with it since 1991, it would be my absolute first choice on any given day.
That 120MP chip they showed with Canon cine quality lenses is my idea of heaven, and I'd take out a second mortgage to get that system if they made it, but there's maybe only a couple of hundred of us in the world who feel that way, so developing such a thing is not what you'd call good business sense.
