Wow! 24 pages and still going strong. How about a deep breath and a little longer perspective?
Ten years ago in September 2002, there were several choices in Canon full frame SLRs, notably the EOS-1 V, Elan 7, and the newly released Rebel Ti. These could all use the same sensors, usually from Kodak or Fuji, and were generally only good for 24 or 36 exposures before needing to be replaced. Yes, film! Digital SLRs were APS-C or APS-H, not full frame.
Now, ten years later, our current, non-cinema, Canon full frame SLR choices (in order of decreasing price) are EOS-1D X, 5D mkIII, 5D mkII, and EOS-1V (as priced at B&H today). Yes, the current least expensive full frame SLR is an EOS-1 V!!
Much has happened in those 10 years. Perhaps we should consider the amount of time it takes to get really proficient with a camera relative to the perceived amount of time before it is "obsolete". In this thread, the latter seems to be getting vanishingly small. These are not mobile phones with cameras with a 6 month product cycle but tools to be used and useful for years.
I am glad the technology has been advancing to give us more full frame digital choices (2 new ones so far this year alone -- not counting cinema) and there is now rumored to be one that will be more affordable than the EOS-1 V! Rumored specs are less important in the big picture, not that specs are uninteresting or will not be important when there is an actual camera to spend real money on.
Overall, I view the rumored specs favorably.
The 11 AF points, particularly if all cross type with a center dual cross is an improvement over the 5D and 5D mk II and all the APS-C DSLRs (except the 7D, numerically). It is not reasonable to expect a full frame camera to share the 7D AF sensor due to the different mirror box geometry for full frame and and EF-S capable APS-C cameras. (The 10D did use the same sensor as the Elan 7, and later the Elan 7n, but the 10D was before EF-S and not compatible with it).
The built in GPS and Wifi are a bit surprising, but welcome.
A 20MP sensor in a, roughly, 60D size body seems reasonable at the rumored price. Remember, Canon is reputably working on automating camera manufacturing. Remember also what they did to the industry when they introduced the AE-1 in 1976!
I really look forward to an actual announcement and real product reviews of this. Too much speculation eventually becomes too much noise.
