However this camera turns out, 5D3 owners will be burned.

Unless it costs like $5k.  Which wouldn't be surprising, given Canon's recent pricing.

Will this shoot 3D?





 ;D

Worth pointing out every time. Unless it does, it will *not* be called 3D.

I'm a 5D3 owner and I won't be, I still think my camera is great for doing what I need to do and a new camera release isn't going to change that. I shoot at bars, clubs, and other dimly lit places frequently and the 5D3 is the best (1dx maybe withholding), way better than the D800 for that. I shoot macro and flowers and that too sometimes requires pushing the iso.

If this body does something that I need, which I doubt, I can pick one up for the cost of a body with all of my lenses working.

/the 5d3 isn't perfect. but the things I miss are more rarely talked about such as exposure on focus point or a better metering engine. Images that are sharper out of the camera as an option for when I don't want to do post.

This sounds a lot like the 5D HD I've been predicting for months.

Same body, same price-point as the 5D III, but with an upsized and slightly improved 7D sensor. Take your choice: high ISO and frame rate in the 5DIII or high resolution but lower ISOs and frame rate in the 5D HD (high definition). At the same $3,500 price point as the 5DIII, it remains competitive with the D800, but doesn't undercut the 5DIII.

The 5DIII was targeted to event and wedding photographers who need clean images at higher ISOs. They won't be upset when this surfaces.

As for those worried about the ability of "L" lenses to resolve 46 mp, that's the same density as the 7D sensor.

For what reason? Unless you plan to buy another super computer for 46MP - raw file  ;D

Form factor? 1D sized body or 5D sized body?

Given that it would accept CF+SD cards I suspect it may take a form similar to the 5D.

For me this would be a bit annoying, mirroring Nikon's design choice, but not making things any better.

I would definitely prefer a 1D form factor.

Native ISO 50, software pulled ISO 25; sounds nice!!!
It is true that EOS 5D mkII becomes noisy if using Liveview for long periods, hope they fix this

Why don't we transfer all of the 1DX-esque ficitcious specs from the 7D Mark II thread and transfer them to this thread?  That would actually at least make SOME sense.  Personally this would be more of a 1Ds Mark IV camera to me, or at least I hope :)

Going to medium-format type sensor will require Canon to give up on the EOS mount, which is designed for the 24 x 36 mm format.
The biggest square you can put in the same circle as a 24x36 sensor would be 30.6mm on the side, and with the same 6.9um pixel size of the 1Dx, you'd only get 8% more area and thus 8% more pixels - 19.4Mpixels.

Being CR1, this is just someone's fantasy camera.  It has no more credibility than any of us just randomly emailing the CR guy with what we'd like to see in a big megapixel camera.  With the 1DX, 5DIII, T4i, and mirror less I just don't see another body being released so soon. 

There were tons of CR2's for months prior to all the previously mentioned cameras and not one for this camera, we would have heard something by now if there was a camera this big on the immediate horizon.

I will not own this camera for a couple of reasons:

1) I dont need or want 40MP images.  Good god.  22MP is enough to deal with.
2) Cost due to inflation, R&D, limited production will likely put the price tag at around 9500.00 for the body.

Now if they also added a real 3D capability to this model then it might be worth it.
