Canon's will come in at $2500 is my guess.   My reasoning:  It has to be more than the 7D, its likely to be more than the 5DIIs final price...and they've got that at MSRP $2199.  I could see them going as high as the original 5dII price of $2700 body only.  If they put it at $3k its too close to the 5DIII.  Based on my flawed logic, I'd put a range for prices on this thing at $1900-2700.  With their trend of overpricing significantly compared to the competition, I put the odds at $2500. 

So that's my speculation.   I'm hoping to be pleaseantly surprised!

In the past how long has it taken bodies to make it to the refurb market or CLP program?   I have no money saved, could possibly save 2K by next Christmas but would obviously love to save as much money as possible and I don't care about new or refurb.

So that's my speculation.   I'm hoping to be pleaseantly surprised!

Maybe we should do a poll on this ... imho it'll be a lot less than $2500 because once the 6d is released, the 5d3 priced will drop because of falling demand of people wanting a current ff camera but not willing to pay $3000+ ... Canon will not make the same 5d3 mistake again to price a comparable or inferior product much higher than the competition.

Is there any likelihood this fantastic camera would have a built-in wireless flash controller?? that would be soooo awesome

I don't think so - first then it'll be a tougher competition for the 5d3 with the need for an expensive and bulky wireless controller, and most important it might note be that easy to put a wireless controller into a rather solid camera body frame w/o sacrificing transmitting power and range.

according to Nikon Rumors the D600 is coming in at 2,700 about double the predicted price.... weather that is true or not we'll see.

The US prices of Nikon gear are usually lower, but at that point I think we can forget about a sub-$2,000 full frame Nikon camera. The D800 costs around ¥298,000 in Japan and $3000 in the US. With this ratio, I expect the D600 US price to be around $2,100.

If the $2000-2200 price is real then you can expect the 6D to be priced at the $2500 mentioned above.

Do you think that price will included a lens?

I don't believe that it would. NR points out that the price with the 24-85mm kit lens is ¥270,000 (body only is ¥215,000).

We will know for sure, tomorrow.

do you think as suggested in other topics that:
5dii is entry level at (guessing new prices) 1599
6d at 2599
5d iii 3499

i'm interested if the new camera can fullfill my needs.

minor gripe but I hope it doesn't have a different battery.  I'd like to be able to use/swap/share the same chargers and batteries as my 60D or with other shooters who use the LP-E6.

Dang, if it had built-in flash and an articulated screen, I would sell my 5DIII regardless of what AF is in there...

Sort of.
You will probably find that the 6D will retail around $1499, 5D2 will still kick around for a while at $2299 then just fade out once stock depletes and the 5D3 will stay around $3200.

If these rumours are true and it has thing such as articulated screen, dual SD cards and good video, it would pretty much wipe out the need for the 5D2 for video.

I can basically see this camera as being a FF version of the 60D.
Yes, i shoot video on a DSLR.

I was basing that price on the 60D when it came out, it was around the $1199 mark. Add a few hundred for a FF sensor and basically the same build quality and the $1499 - $1699 range would make sense and sell a bundle.
