Okay Canon Rumors Guy, time to be straight up with folks.

I assume the CR2 portion of the rumor is that there will be up to four new DSLR bodies announced in 2012.

Then, it appears the remainder of the post is simply repeating past speculation on what these might be. So, is it correct to give CR2 rating to the possibility of four new DSLRs but CR1 or less to the speculation about what they might be?

I'm just about to pull the trigger on a 5D MK3 and I mostly shoot video, can someone please throw me a 'you're doing the right thing' bone. I'm worried that what Canon might do is make a video orientated entry level full frame borrow the AF technology from the new 650D/T4i.

Can you see where I'm coming from?

Personally, I'm waiting. In the same boat as you.

Same boat as both of you. Thinking I will hold on to my 60D for now, invest in a 24-70 and other equipment (just got a Glidecam woohoo!) and wait til end of the year to make the Mark 3 jump.

Enjoy the Glidecam. I use a Merlin and love it quite a good bit. I'm waiting to see the entry levels specs, it looks like a better cam for me since any upgrade from a 550D will be great.

Oh man I feel you, but honestly, the T2i isn't bad. I truly believe that a lot of upgrades are not 100% necessary, and that's why a friend of mine suggested I hold off on a new body for a while. I only had my 60D just over a year though it feels longer, I do feel like I would like something more substantial an upgrade than a 5DM3 for the price it is. Have you considered better lenses and lights to get better performance out of your cam? Well lit T2i footage can look really great.

i hope one is an answer to the rumored nikon D600.
that would be the "entry level FF".  If Canon doesn't release a competitor to the D600 (if it meets the rumored specs), they are going to get crushed in the DSLR market for most enthusiasts and many pros, I think.

I really hope the big megapixel IS a 1 series body. My dream, I'd buy it in a second.

If it helps, you guys should go to the MacRumors forum and watch all the dudes tear their hair out because Apple hasn't seriously updated their i-Macs or Mac Book Pros for years.  Talk about long waits.  :(

If the mirrorless doesn’t count against the 4 purported camera bodies, I’m unsure what else Canon could have up their sleeves for the EOS line.

How old is the EOS 1100D?
Looks up for renewal to me, 1200D could be the #4...

There might be some early 5DMKIII adopters with their noses out of place before the years out.

Didn't Apple just announce a new MacBook Pro with an amazing new "retina display" yesterday?
If if had another USB port or two and came with Windows 7, I'd probably buy one.

A direct replacement for the 5D Mark II???  So what is the Mark III suppose to be?

I'm picturing a Mk2 sensor in a rebel body, swivel screen, and a "straight to facebook" button :-) What a scary thought.

Since they're going the radio route on the flashes, how about a radio controller in the body?

One day:

A modular camera where you pick 1 of x bodies, a sensor, a buffer-- feel free to add to the list--and when you're ready ( i.e. "have the cash"), you can upgrade the component of your desire. So as tech evolves, so does (can) your camera.

And spare me the, "Canon won't 'cause they're greedy," crap.  The ability to upgrade part of your camera would force other's to follow suit.

i think they are going to kill the line off and replace with mirrorless, a cheap crappy mirrorless not an awesome APS-H mirrorless that they could so easily do :(

There will be no point having an entry level FF unless Nikon comes out with one, otherwise they'll cannibalise 5D3 sales.

1100D
70D
3D - high MP FF

Sorry 7D users - your time is up.

and Canon walks away from the 1D4 market?

This points even more to the 7DII being APS-H.
