12800 ISO sounds kind of low - perhaps it could be extended to 25600 and even 51200... that would mean that 6400 was really usable.

... 39 vs. 19 auto focus points but no word on how many are cross-type ...


From rumored specs I can see: "39 AF points (with an option of 11 AF points), 9 cross-type AF points"

So IF canon puts 7D-like AF with 19 cross-type points - AF looks better for Canon.

Yeah, this DOES sound too good to be true. It looks like a 5D Mark III for half the price. I don't see a reason why Canon would do that. I just hope I'm wrong, though. :)

Here we go again... round two of offer me a 5D Mark III with extra features for half the price or I will go to Nikon forever!  Flame on.

Stating facts has nothing to do w/ flaming ... it won't be a 5d3 if servo af is crippled, no dual card slots, less sturdy build quality, no quiet shutter, less customization *and* much shallower buffer (i.e. 5 fps only for a few seconds) - the last thing is often forgotten when talking about fps, but Canon did it already on the 650d.

I can think of couple of things: lower max ISO, less fps, worse AF, less video stuff (adjustments), no headphones jack, less sealing, smaller buffer...basicly something that could 5D Mk II user want as a replacement and Mk III user as backup.

...Canon needs something to replace 5D Mk II (Mk III is not a replacement but and upgrade to higher level, like a new line) and to have something to compete D600 with. This could be such a body.

I would look forward to a touch screen if it also has a well done user interface:

menu navigation,
custom settings - setting, selecting
direct print :)
etc

with a physical lock/unlock toggle button.

I disagree, the 5d3 was the intended replacement (hence the name), but Canon screwed up because they didn't account for the competition and now have to put out another camera body. If it wasn't for Sony and Nikon, the 5d2 would probably already have gone and people would have to decide either to pay $3000+, stick with a crop camera or wait a 1-2 years for the price to drop. Hail to the competition!

I agree with the latter...but yet disagree too.  5d3 is the replacement for the 5d2, that is certain.  But I don't think canon screwed up.  I think of it like this.  If you advertise your cost for lets say wedding photography at $3500, and the other guy, your competition who is just as good as you  (better in some ways, but worse in other's starts targeting your clients and telling them they'd do it for $3000 is it you that screwed up your pricing...or, is the other guy in fact undercutting you by offering a similar deal for less $$$????

I bring this up because in almost every pricing discussion for our work, those that charge too little are called bad names --- it's frowned upon.  Some even go as far as saying its part of whats destroying professional photography.  So in a real world comparison - if you believe your work is worth every penny of the $3500, do you lower your rates and profits and match your competition or do you stick to your guns and maintain your rates?

Just give me a sensor at least on par with the Mark II & better autofocus, a wireless flash controller would seal the deal. I'll gladly do without video to keep the price at $1500 as I think most people would.

WOW, I would be again so happy that canon put more than 1 AF point and a superb sesnor with great dynamic range of 5EV:) Maybe they use some 15 year old sensor and tune it by 0,25 EV. Great! Hope that the upgrade will be beyond a new facebook button on the back.

Well, thinking about it again the other alternative is that Canon planned the 6d (*if* there will be such a thing) all along, and priced the 5d3 high strategically to leave space for an entry-level ff that isn't obsoleted as soon as the 5d3 price drops some. If that that is the case Canon would be more clever than I though because the 5d3 will still sell @3000+ for people who want to afford it, and the 6d will prevent people with Canon lenses to jump ship to Nikon.

If it were that simple, sure, people probably would. But removing video won't make the camera cheaper

Yeah, the spec list says (+H1 and H2), which would seem to imply that it goes go to 51200, but 12,800 is the last true ISO level. And I'd take useable 6400.
