That would be really great oppportunity to show a new wide lens at the same time. A lot of excitement but the price tag will be even a bigger killer than this 3dx capabilities. 7900$? 4900$?
I think the fact it can capture high-resolution images in both 3D and 46 MP at the same time leads me to suspect the price will be on the high side, but that's just my educated guess

(...)
My other issue with the “3D” name, is the camera wouldn’t be 3D. However, add the “X” at the end and that should help alleviate any confusion with consumers (believe me, there would be).
(...)

Yes Craig, you are right. Does Canon know that or they really intend to sell it in pairs?

Why not call it the 1D Xs for studio

"CF and SD cards" rather than dual CF cards - does it translate into 5d size body rather than 1Dx?
1Dx | 5D III

I'm sure that Canon now uses the 'EOS 3D' name as a code word for any misinformation that they intend to spread!  ;)

Now this is one rumour I do believe completely

A fabulous pro camera at a fabulous pro price, I expect way higher than 1Dx.

Have to admit though as photogaz '1DXs' does sound better, and sits better on that pyramid, just don't like 3D (so it's guaranteed to be called 3D)

And I’d be really surprised if not two CF slots.

I'm in the reusing the 1d name camp....   we have 1DC, 1DX, 1DM - for "Max" to allude at "medium" format quality at FF sized sensor.

I think it will have both CF and SD card slot because this way you can use eyefi card.

So, if the 3D is supposed to between the 5D and 1D series, that also means the price will be somewhere between $3500 and $6800.  If this is supposed to compete with the D800(E), then I think Canon seriously missed its price-point.

 If this is supposed to compete with medium format cameras a price between 3000$ and 6000$ is not a bad idea.

High MP cameras is not about high ISO performance, it is about high DR at base ISO. If your applications require high ISO they don't require high MP, and then there's 5Dmk3 and 1DX.

If it will offer 12 DR stops @ ISO 6400 then why forbid them go so far?  :D

I think it shouldn't compete directly with the D800(E). Making a prosumer body for a camera that requires top-of-the-line pro lenses to make full use of the pixels is just strange, which is what Nikon has done. I think a high MP camera should be a pro body.

Shooting high MP to its full potential is not cheap, you need expensive tripods and/or expensive lighting, and expensive lenses. When you have to buy everything of the highest quality anyway, then the body should be that too I think.
