With Photokina within the month, what closely guarded dream cameras will Canon have in store for the dedicated fancrowd? Will they show Nikon at last how a real high mp camera should be like, or will they preempt the d600 with a 5d2 successor? Take your pick!

7D is over-due for an update. Every decent canon crop camera has it sensor now, and produces = IQ.  :P

I think we'll see the 5dII successor simply for them to try and one-up the D600. We might see the new 70D, but, it'll basically be the old 7D with the new sensor AF and a weaker body

We usually get a lot more buzz if a major new EOS body is going to be announced... I cannot say if there will be anything worthwhile on that front...

But while you are at it Canon... let us know when you can begin selling us the new 24-70ii's.
EOS-5D Mk.iii 
Sigma 24-105mm F4 ART; EF 70-200 F/2.8L Mk.II; EF 85mm L F/1.2 Mk. II; EF 100mm L F/2.8 IS Macro, 50mm F/1.8ii;  TC's 2x Mk.iii; 1.4x Mk.iii

Any bets on the possibility of a G12 successor with a 2/3rds or even 1" CMOS sensor, a 24 to 180mm ƒ1.8 to ƒ4 zoom lens to beat the recently announced Niko P7700?

Okay, so where's the option for "nothing significant"?

I'm with K-amps on this one. 

Ideally it'd be a 70D (basically a 7D/60D merge).  I agree (from other threads) with others that the new firmware on the 7D means there's no immediate successor.

The new FF camera would be ideal, but they're going to have to make an affordable FF in such high volume (closer to that of the crop bodies) that I suspect we'll hear more chatter first.

Barring that, I'd vote for another price-prohibitive lens and/or really entry-level gear.

whilst i'd love the 7d2 to be announced, my honest feeling is that they'll not announce anything of consequence.  i think we would have heard more in the way of rumours if they were going to release stuff.


bummer.

I'm afraid they will show nothing significant.  The lens will be the star.  They got caught with their pants down by the Nikon 800e.  I think they were ready to show some stuff but it was outclassed when Nikon upped the ante for the same price as a 5DIII.  I think they will regroup and have something to show soon but all of the choices suggested don't make sense.  The real whole in their lineup is aging middle with the 60D and 7D now 3 years old, but if they go FF they kill of sales of the over priced 5DIII.  If they go mega pixels the 1DX line looks silly with an 18MB sensor.  the 7D got a firmware face lift.  What could they do with the 70D?  slightly better sensor?  Tweak the focus?  big deal.  If you were saving for a FF at $2,000 save a bit more the 5DIII will probably drop in price before Christmas.  Maybe $3,000, maybe less.  Beach Camera had 200 of them for $2,800 last week.  Something is wrong somewhere or sales are really strong on the 7D and 60D.  3 years is a record for not refreshing a line.  Especially their advanced amateur line. Like I said, I think Nikon really caught them with their pants down.

Maybe on the 5D3, yes.  But amateurs really aren't the big buyers of the 5D3 and D800, so I'm going with more of an entry-level type camera to be announced, maybe.

What about the 1DX?  When I'm at a football game and all the Nikon users are packing their bags and I'm still clicking off at 1/2000s, the "Canon Camp" really whipped the sh*t out of Nikon on that one.  The 1DX is better than any Nikon camera, past or present, period.  Maybe not completely for portrait/landscape, but who cares?  When you can get that much detail out of an 18 MP sensor, it really doesn't matter.  Nikon has absolutely no match at all, with any camera, to match the 1DX's ISO, detail, and AF performance.  Yes, the D800 maybe is better than the 5D3, but the 1DX is better than every Nikon camera, period.  If you don't believe this, please rent one and go shoot a night game or do some portrait work with it.  In my book, Canon wins over all Nikon cameras with their 1DX.  Why does that not count for anything, but the D800 vs. 5D3 bullshit still rages on?  What about 1DX whipping everything?

To play devils advocate here, it's not that it doesn't count for anything...it's just, I can have one of each of the 5dIII and D800 for the price of the 1DX. There's a reason the $3000 cameras get argued more than the $7000 camera...more users. Likewise its the same reason why the D600 v whatever Canon puts out will be debated twice as much as the D800 v 5dIII was; more people can afford it.

No, that's actually a fair statement.

I hope for a small/light (not bigger than 60d) 70d with FINALLY a new (less noisy) sensor.
