My question is:  if it is indeed 20MP, why the heck did they develop yet another FF sensor?

They're Canon. They did it because they can.

Re: Canon is out foxed.

Where Nikon has outfoxed Canon is that their camera at about the same price ($2099 is close enough to $1999) but with 20% more pixels. Nikon were able to deliver a 24MP FF camera at $2099 because their next model up camera has substantially more megapixels - 36. Canon's product lineup below the 1DX is screwed. They really need to throw it out and start over.

Your post is interesting in so far as this "pixel counting" is the exact thing most inexperienced users will do, and that drives the sales of the bulk of non-pro camera bodies.

Of course if you look at the resulting picture sizes no one gives a damn about the differences between 18mp and 24mp, if you want a real usable difference it's 36mp+ like the the d800. It's much more about iso performance, dynamic range at various iso levels, camera firmware features like af tracking, handling and build quality. All these things aren't in the "core" specs but are much more important than a little more or less mp.

For the price, the specs sound acceptable, but the details are going to make it or break it for me. More specifically, the combination between an autoexposure that exposes the subject properly (meaning low light or backlit scenes) and shadow recovery (so I can use the RAW to get around the bad autoexposure).

Nikon D600 got a very positive preview from Imaging-Resource

"Many of you will doubtless find yourselves equally impressed--not just with the samples, but with what this camera offers in terms of bang for the buck. That's almost certainly going to mean demand outstrips supply for the foreseeable future. Our advice? Get in queue now, before it gets even longer."

As long as they can increase the DR, 20MP is enough.

if the rumor specs are correct. I have no intention to buy this body. even for $1500

Agree with you!

At least an articulated screen, CF cards!, built in time-lapse, something new for who love taking video ecc....

Without these features, for the first time in my life I will buy a Nikon camera: D600........
COME ON CANON!!! WAKE UP!!! >:( >:( ;)

Most likely, these specs are just made up, because:
a) "APS-C Sized body" doesn't make any sense. Maybe some bits were lost in translation, so we've got "APS-C Sized body" instead of "APS-C Sized sensor" and those are 70D specs.
b) "11 AF Points, f/2.8 Cross-type in the center" doesn't make much sense as well. How many cross-type in the center? 1? 5? 7?  60D and 650D got all 9 cross-type.
c) If "APS-C Sized body" somehow means that it is smaller than 5D/1D, then I doubt that it would be xD series camera. SD card slots are reasonable for smaller bodies. However, a single SD card slot in $2000 body is just ridiculous and if they did that just to keep the price as low as possible, then the "Built-in Wifi & GPS", "Weathersealed" body and a new FF sensor doesn't make sense at all.
d) IMHO, only 5D(something) can replace the 5D2. Writing random numbers on cameras is a Nikon thing, not Canon. Let's call it 5D2minusCF  ;D
FF + primes !

I actually spoke to a Canon salesperson today, and he said there were "rumors" within the company, that a new cheaper FF is in the works. Metal body, price just a little less than a 7D. If this is the one he was speaking of, I'd be first in line. These specs for 2k = joke. These specs for 1.2k = GIEF!

i say no way.... i would even bet on it.

i would be suprised if it cost more then 200$ less then the D600.

The price is including 24-105 or not?? £1799 is close to $3000

Well from the early days of the 5D3 rumours I’ve been looking for a FF 650D looks like Canon are about to deliver!
The 5D3 is of course a fabulous camera and I’d have one in an instant if either of these were true
       a) I could afford it
       b) I was earning money with it
Unfortunately neither are true although I will be able to afford it at some point but I don’t like the time scale.

As a 500D owner looking to upgrade a FF650D would clearly be just that and I do feel that I’m right in the middle of the demographic this camera is aimed at (not pro’s looking for a cheap backup body)

I do have a few concerns though
       1. If it doesn’t have AFMA
I’ve never had a digital camera with AFMA so I just don’t know how important it is too have this on EF /FF body, I need to do my homework and get a clear understanding of the tolerances involved. Maybe without AFMA camera/lens performance will be acceptable for me as an enthusiast? Is this a ‘black or white’ thing or is it more something that pro’s require? I just don’t know.

       2. The top flash sync speed does seem slow, not too happy about that but it is still just rumour

       3. 650D has 9 cross-type, that’s fine but shouldn’t be less than this because that’s the reason  haven’t        gone for a 5D2

…… and then of course getting a 650DFF price point would allow me to get better glass keep taking pictures and upgrade the body to a 5D3 when the price has come down a bit in a year or so…… Sounds like a plan!

If the camera exists at all I can’t wait to see the final specs

Nope, UK prices just tend to be higher like that. Amazon UK is currently taking pre-orders for the D600 at £1974.44, so if this rumoured price is true, then the 6D will be nearly 200 pounds cheaper than the Nikon.
