Odds & Ends
A know source has mentioned a couple of things in regards to products coming in late 2012.

Mirrorless Announcement I’m told that Canon’s foray into the mirrorless world will begin in August with an announcement. Photokina is in September, so it makes a lot of sense to announce at the end of summer.

New Full Frame A suggestion that Canon will announce an “entry level” full frame camera in the fall of 2012. A true replacement to the 5D Mark II?

That would bring about 4 new full frame cameras in the span of about a year if we include the coming 4K DSLR. Most assume that will be a full frame camera.

Presuming that the entrey level ff is not going to be a mega pixel monster I'd say it is unlikly we'll see Canon releasing a high MP direct D800 competitor this year.

With the 1dx, 5d3, the 4k dslr and the entry level dslr surely they wont also put out a $3k price range full frame MP monster this year as well?

an "entry level" full frame? Anyone want to play guess the spec? Will this be the 7D2?

18 MPx

less FPS than 5D3

Single card

18 focal points

$2,200.

That's my opening offer. What's yours?

This comes from someone that is probably the most accurate of any source with stuff months off from coming to market. Specs and the like are never decided this far in advance. I have heard there are multiple camera configurations in the wild right now.

If I had to wager, a 5D3 minus the AF, frame rate and build quality. $1999 anyone?

Pretty much what I said - hooray for agreement! I think with the 5D3 at $3500, you've got a nice wide window below. If I were Canon, and looking at the 5D3 profits, you could probably sell it at $2500 and get your hand bitten off...

Possibly a 5D MK II with digic V+

The question would be why people should buy that instead of a second-hand 5D2.

I have a feeling that there is something missing from the story.

I was waiting for the new Canon 5DIII but the price killed it for me. The $2,000 price point is the sweet spot for me. My big worry is they will release the T4i before and I will jump too quickly.

I think it makes sense with a cheaper FF, same sensor as 5D3 but without the AF, fps and build. Maybe even make it compatible with EF-S in some way :)

There is no room for a 2000$ FF: the 5dmk2 is already at this place.
Canon won't spend money (research, production lines, testing, advertizing...) and time to replace an award-winning, best-selling product such as the 5dmk2.

Next annoucements will be april and september, for june and november availabilities. Seems like a nice roadmap to me (Canon mirrorless for christmas, yay  ;D). This will already be 4 major photography products (1D X, 5D3, 4K and mirrorless) in a single year.

I'm hoping for a mass megapixel FF and a sport-oriented APS-C (7D2 ?) announcements during Q1 2013.

There's no such thing as an "entry level" full-frame camera...makes zero sense marketing/business wise.  The Cine-DSLR will obviously be full-frame.  I can see a market for a 1DsMkIII-esque studio replacement in terms of a 3D/4D high MP monster but not suggesting that is coming, however much more market for that than cannibalizing the investment Canon has made in the 60D, 7D (7D II) etc. with a $2,400 full frame camera...UNLESS it shot only stills which would make no sense really given phones are shooting 1080P video now.  The 5D3 is the "entry-level" full-frame camera if you want to use that term; and the 1Dx is the flagship full-frame camera, certainly room in between them for a studio, high MP body.  There will not be a 5DX, that was a creation of this site I think, not seen anything from Canon on a "5DX", the Cine-4K DSLR is not going to be in the 5D line, it is meant for an entirely different market, the market it was announced at, Hollywood, with the C-300.  There will not be a <$3000 full frame camera from Canon this year, period...if ever.
