then perhaps Rebel-users would be prepared to part with 2 grand for a body like this?
Don't think so... "Rebel-Users" mostly upgrade to something 'bout $900-1500 and I can't see them spending $1999 + Lenses (since most own EF-S-lenses anyway).

The specs also look suspicious to me:
  • Why develop a new Sensor when Canon has three different FF-Sensors available?
  • Why a new 11 Point AF and not the 19 Point AF of the 7D?
  • Why only 1/4000 when even the 60D offers 1/8000?
  • Why only 1/180 when even a 650D offers 1/200 and the 60D offers 1/250?
  • What is an "EOS" Body? One similar to the body of the EOS 650D or one similar to the EOS 1Dx?

I wouldn't trust this source...

Forget about EOS xxxD size body. Just look at the D600. It will 7D or 60D like in size and weight. Maybe 760 grams without battery and memory card.

Why would it take SD when the 7D takes CF!? Seems a bit of an interesting choice...

Doesn't sound very promising IMO. Weather sealed, but 11 point AF so a new system there too along with a new sensor...

I think this one is a fake.

I expect the 7D/5DMKII homologation. Makes more sense, with the parts bin, and more value for the photographers.

Looks fake...  If this is true... Why the heck does Canon spend so much time figuring out ways to cripple their products instead of going and reworking their sensors... >:(

Looks a bit fake, but in some ways makes sense.  If Canon made the specs stronger, most of us would expect a price greater than the D600.  Maybe the somewhat weaker specs were deliberate so they could price it lower.

As for the SD slot, I'm guessing this is geared more towards Rebel/60D owners looking to move up to FF cheaper than a 5DmkIII, so they've got SD cards already.  They won't have to worry about buying a new body PLUS relatively expensive CF cards.

I wonder if the new sensor was so that they could address banding and/or DR in some way.  And I'm curious about AFMA, which would be nice.

So we got then 5D Mark 2.5?

2.25!

You are both incorrect. By the rumored specs I see, I would say more like 5D Mark 1.75
5D Mark III, Rebel T1i, 17-40 f4L, 24-105 f4L IS, 70-200 f2.8L IS II, 85 f1.8, ST-E3-RT, 430EX II, 2 x 600EX-RT.

to add phase detection on the sensor like the 650D and eos-m

maybe canon want to keep this precious 19 point AF to another higher model

because Nikon D600 is 1/4000

because 5D3 only has 1/200

Get your 5DmkII while you can. You won't be disappointed. With this new camera, you might very well be.

Canon needs to develop a new sensor with better IQ + DR + ISO noise performance, but cannot use the 1DX or 5D3 sensor wth higher MP count cos' that might tempt others not to buy those FF bodies (marginal buyers)

An 11 point AF system is an upgrade from the 9-point AF found on Rebel series bodies

The new Nikon D600 is only 1/4000s max shutter speed, so Canon are matching that spec

And as regards max flash shutter speed sync, well perhaps Canon wants users to shell out for the new 430EX II replacement that is coming soon so that they can get HSS that way, so then 1/x sync becomes totally irrelevant

Finally, an EOS body is anything that Canon Marketing want it to be, but you cannot deny that the tech world (inclusing DSLR) is moving smaller, plus CR commentators with gripped 5D3's and the tall-body 1D series cameras often complain about camera weight (lugging body+telephoto lenses around). Also Canon has introduced the EOS-M with an APS-C sized sensor, so the trend is for smaller bodies across the board.

No 17 cross type AF points?

Prepare for failure canon.

Built-in GPS and wifi?  Why can't Canon include those useful features on the 5D3 or 1D X?   :-[

APS-C sized body?  7d or T4i size?

This has me stumped as well. I think the 7D is actually a little bit larger than the 5DII  ;D

5DMkII owners need not look at this '6D'. Only upgrade path seems to be 5DMkIII or (god help me) 1DX  :o

Disagree. When the 5DMkII disappears, this will be an appealing camera if upgrading from APS-C, save possibly for 7d owners.

The specs on this camera have been bugging me this morning, and I finally figured out why. It has nothing to do with a new camera coming out for with less-than-hoped-for specs on a budget FF. It's the implication that a camera body like this is going to called an xD.

Here's my point: For my way of thinking the single-digit Canon line implies a level of build quality and other features that come with a higher end camera. It's not for the average weekend shooter. It's for the serious photog who plans on pair it with some high quality glass to get the best IQ out there possible. The specs for this camera are clearly less than that.

So Canon, let's not call it a 6D. Let's give is a xxD or even an xxxD name. Nobody's going to care if you put out a FF camera that has one of those designations. But let's not dilute the xD line of fine cameras you already have just because it's a FF.
In landscape photography, when you shoot is more important than where.

Gear: Canon 5DmkII, 17-40mm f/4 L, 50mm f/1.4, 70-200mm f/4.
