A camera featuring a new 30MP sensor must be placed above the 5D3, so I don't see how it would come into play for a low-end camera. Not until the next generation, at least. Right now Nikon can offer a 24MP camera which would be quite fine and yet quite less than the D800. I'm not sure Canon can do the same.
VF coverage, video perfomrmances, lesser AF (if still effective) and such things are quite an acceptable loss for a -50% on the price tag of a FF with the same IQ level. Amateurs would be more than content with it. I would like it to be so, but I doubt it strongly.

You seem to be making the assumption that higher resolution must equal a higher end body, compairing the 1D4 to the recent Rebels shows that itsnt the case.

Personally I'd say that if the D600 specs are correct they'll loose Nikon more D800 business than the 6D specs I listed would Canon 5D3 business. I think the 5D2 showed that resolution comes first for a large part of the amature market, there prepaired to work around some weaknesses to get the best quality where as pro's want the most efficent system and only enough resolution to suit there business needs.

I dont use grips and with modern batteries being so good the integrated grip is pretty much a dinosaur except for maintaining best weather sealing, intergrated grip is something i would rather not have if possible 5D sized bodies with no grip is about perfect for me.

Shooting in portrait is SOOOO much easier with 1 series body or gripped others

Went for a walk with the 7D + 70-300L and it felt like a toy.

I'll keep that passage in mind and cite it occasionally when there's some confusion by new forum members about what the standard around here is :-o ... a real man needs a real man's camera!

Canon will release a 30MP Body. Additionaly they will release a black and white body for all those people bought everything else yet.

We need MTF with 100 lines per mm to get aware, which lenses are good enough for more than 15MP. Up to now, we only can guess or read other sources than canon.com to find quality lenses.

Zeiss will fill the gap with high quality lenses: Canon is not offering MTF-charts with 100 lines per mm and so we think they don't trust there own quality.

meh i've shot 1D bodies and still keep the mk3 but honestly i'm not a fan of grips i'd rather lose the bulk
i find shooting portraits just fine with non gripped bodies. all presonal preference really. its a pity they dont make non gripped 1D bodies like the good old 1V but the 5Dmk3 is as close as they have ever been

lonelywhitelights and jouster is absolutly right. The first thing that falls to mind reading 3D is a camara able to make 3D-movie. Did Canon made af EOS 3D for 5 years ago it would be just another camara name but today, no way.
So let's call it 4D or 6D depending how the specs. will position it agains the 5D mark III.

The magazine is pretty well respected, and all of this could be entirely plausible

LOL not they are NOT. they are the guys that predicted the D700x, and other models that NEVER happened. NR said it best
