Make sense, yes or no?

EOS 1D X - Flagship (moderate MP, high FPS, best build, AF and metering)

EOS 3D - Pro FF (high MP, low FPS)

EOS 5D Mark III - Pro FF (moderate MP, moderate FPS, Pro AF and build)

EOS 6D - Semi Pro FF (Smaller brother to 5D series)

EOS 7D Mark II - Pro APS-C (High FPS and large buffer, Pro AF and build)

EOS 8D - The new xxD line. Semi Pro APS-C (Smaller brother to 7D series)

I believe you meant 70D insted of 8D....

No. With the EOS xxD line running short of new numbers my guess is that this line will move up to the xD line in form of a 8D or 9D. The little brother to the EOS 7D line. Just as the 6D is the smaller brother to the EOS 5D line.

When it's time to replace the EOS 90D. I can only see it two ways:

1) The model after 90D will move up and be named 8D/9D.
2) The xxD line starts over again with 15D, 25D, 35D and so on.

I know "pro" photographers that use Rebels. The photographer is the "Pro" not the camera.

With "Pro/Semi Pro" I ment camera body style. I know that a Pro photographer can take pictures with any camera. ;)

I know, I was just busting balls.

EOS 8D - The new xxD line. Semi Pro APS-C (Smaller brother to 7D series)

Pretty close to the way I see it. I would guess the "8D" would actually remain as the 70D. They can always call the next generation 70D II, just as they do with the other models. In fact, if you want to split hairs, it would make sense to call the next model a 60D II. That way it would be clear that the 6D and 60D are essentially the same thing, except for the sensor.

I still think the "3D" could just as easily be a 5D HD (High Definition). Same body, same price, different sensor. Again, just quibbling about names, not anything of any importance.

The APS-H boat was sunk last year. I think Canon is only too happy to be rid of that sensor and I don't see it coming back. Sorry.

So there is no pro FF?  The 5D Mark III is currently a pro camera, and it is FF.  Professionals aren't buying the 1DX to shoot weddings and senior pictures, I'll tell you that right now.  What does semi-pro mean anyways?

I do think someday there will be an 8D and certainly a 3D line.  Wouldn't things get interesting if there were a 4D?

Hey now, while you are correct that I am currently shooting 5d3 for weddings, I do WANT a 1dx for my wedding work. I'll be getting one as soon as I have the extra cash socked away for it.

i think your announcement date for a 1dxs is way too soon, and 7d2 will never be aps-h. People with EF-s lenses will never buy it.

We'd finally be able to go back in time and get those shots we missed ;)
