I live in the UK so anywhere in Europe is accessible by car. Occasionally I go by motorbike so I leave the tripod behind and just take the one body and 3 or 4 lens - for example 17-40, 24-104, 70-200, 600 if I am landscaping. If I am going to the MotoGPs clearly they will be different.
You leave the tripod behind and take 17-40, 24-104, 70-200, 600 ?
600??? That one 600 f/4L IS which let me think: is so small that I guess you carry it on your pocket...  ;D

The tripod doesn't fit in the back box on the bike - but the 600 does :D I use it resting on a short monopod

What I'd like to see

swivel screen!
one CF slot
19 Af points

Without all that super professional features of the 5D MK3.

Price 1800 euro with a non L obb.

This could be PERFECT for me and a lot of people!

I for one do not want the articulating screen. I want a stills camera. Now I know of course that it will shoot video and that the cost of video doesn't inherently increase the cost of the body yet a swivel screen does. I'm looking for IQ and simplicity.

It's all shooting style. I use my swivel screen for stills far more than for video. A swivel screen let's over the head shots not be at the mercy of spray and pray and for low angle shots I don't have to get down in the dirt. plus you can be a little stealthier with candids when you don't have a big black camera pressed to your face.

Exactly as me  :) I want camera for stills. I dont want/need articulating screen for my style of shooting. For me, camera without articulating LCD feels more solid - I know I wont break it apart but it just feels more comfortable/solid to me.

Apart from the new entry level FF camera, I would someday like to see Canon's true replacement for the 1Ds Mark III.  I don't think the 5D Mark III necessarily needs a replacement, since if you upgrade the metering, it's effectively a 1D-series in all likelihood.  How about a 3-series?  :P

Something tells me that the high megapixel FF body will fall in line as a direct 1DS3 replacement.  In theory it should deliver top image quality, but not necessarily the best ISO performance.  It seems that the 1DX is more of a replacement for the 1D4, but still might be a contender for top image quality at low ISO.

I think they'll stay with the 1D X as a unified 1-series body, and not split that line again.  I do expect we'll see a 3-series or whatever they call it - high MP sensor in a 5DIII-type body, 1D X/5DIII AF, but a slow frame rate due to the large MP count.

Well, there is a chatter about new high MPx body:

http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=1210264

Ive read about above 32 MPx, 45 MPx and 47 MPx. Im sure there is market for such product and I think it could be a new line with 5D-like body. Probably announced sometimes early next year (I wont guess availability with Canon after 1D-X announcement/availability). It could have 4K video with high MPx.

Yeah, and the guy also said it was going to be a 1Ds Mark IV.  That sounds plausible.

Hmm, camera labels are hard to guess. And thats not important at all (for me). For Canon it could be wise to announce 36+ MPx camera to quiet all chatter about small resolution...and...to "have more" than Nikon.

The 1DX will join my 1D4 for action shots

What I am looking for is a new, improved body to go alongside my 1DS3. I suspect the 1DX will manage the portrait shooting however I do a significant amount of static shots, where colour/metering  is more important than either AF or FPS

A high mps body would give me the option of better prints above 16x12

OK I could go D800 but how are their TS lens? - perhaps a Canon body will be the best option methinks.

Here is my entirely speculative take on what might be happening.

The new FF body is the new 70D and will look very much like the 60D. It will have a touch screen, as will all future Canon SLRs.

The 7DII will debut a new APS-C sensor and will essentially be an APS-C 5DIII. However, it will retain and probably extend its fps advantage over the 5DIII. It won't have a pop-up flash.

The Rebel line will remain but, since the M now caters for those wanting compactness, the T5i will grow a little in size - not to the size of the 70D but enough to be considered the 70D's APS-C equivalent.

I must admit, my speculation is driven by my inherent desire for neatness! - simplified upgrade paths for 70D and 700D owners, while strengthening the reasons to own both a 5DIII and a 7DII.
