Is the Canon EOS 3D possible?

Well I am very new to photography and I have read here that Canon may be introducing a new low light body. I think the name that is being thrown around is the Canon EOS 3D. I know everything has come to a standstill in Japan, but my question is what are the chances of something like this coming to market? All that I have been seeing in the reports are high resolution cameras coming this year. From what I have read high resolutions typically don’t produce great photos with higher ISO numbers. I think it is a physics issue. I may be wrong, but I did want to find out what are the possibilities for future models.

The body has nothing to do with ISO sensitivity, its the sensor.  Canon seems to be moving toward higher pixel counts, since it improves resolution and IQ.  However, if they decide to make the same mistake that Nikon has already admitted to, and sacrifice resolution for Low light capability, they do not need a new body to do so.  Nikon was hit very hard by their big customers for failing to increase the sensor resolution, and even admitted that it was a mistake to not have a better rounded camera.  It makes the D3s more of a niche body, which apparently has caused the big customers to complain or even switch.  If low light sensitivity is your #1 priority, its great, otherwise, its years behind Canons more well rounded sensors that have good low light sensitivity, high resolution, and excellent video.

Well, I read somewhere that lenses had limited capabilities on resolution….I was reading that the new 1ds mark IV was suppose to have a 40 MP performance. If they release this type of camera/sensor can the canon lenses unitize that much resolution in the final picture? I was pulling from the main rumors  page where it said that Canon was disappointed with 32 MP sensor so they were testing a 40 MP sensor.

40 mp on a FF camera will not cause a problem with most of the good lenses.  Remember, the 18mp sensors in the 7D 60D and T3i are the equivalent of a 46 mp sensor.  100mp might start to see some limitations, but it will be better than 50mp in any event.  With any given lens, a camera body with more resolution will give a image that has more resolution.

Couldn't a 3d EOS be refering to a video specific camera?
