Canon EOS 3D at 46.1mp Next Month? [CR1]
« on: September 25, 2012, 09:44:31 AM »
More confirmations of a big megapixel body for PhotoPlus
I have received more confirmations that the current plan is to showcase a new 46.1mp Canon EOS 3D at PhotoPlus in New York City in October. Along with the camera body, an official announcement for the EF 200-400 f/4L IS 1.4x will be made.

It’s also suggested that 2 other lenses could be appearing for PhotoPlus, though those details have yet to be finalized.

Last year for PhotoPlus, Canon announced the EOS-1D X. It is a show Canon has been known to make a splash with.

What? I thought the 6D was the hero we'd been waiting for?

Yes! Yes! Yes!

Now 28 or 32 would have been enough, but I'll take 46, too ;-)

I propose a short Q/A round:

A: Yes they will be better

Q: Despite worse sensor will people be satisfied anyway?
A: Yes, those who will buy, will be very satisfied

Oh boy, time to go on the Nikon website and start posting about this  :o

Seriously though, there's a market for this (if nothing else, people that feel they need the pixels), but what's the price point going to be? $6k?

46 MP?  It won't be sub $4k, I'm predicting $4999 at a store near you!

lol.  Yeah, let's call it the 5.1D then.  With Canon's pricing strategy, $4,500 is almost a guarantee.  6D -> 5Dm3 -> 3D -> 1DX.  $4,500 fits in there nicely.

Does Canon even make a lens that can resolve 46MP?


** EDIT:  ahem, >$4,500 is a guarantee.  Though I don't think Canon will come within $1,500 of the 1DX, as it clearly wants that body to remain cream of the crop from a pricing standpoint **

Yep, The 100L & 135L are beast. Perhaps the New 24-70 II?

Any Canon Lens, that can take a 2x Converter with 18MP APS-C can not only resolve 46MP Full-Frame, but up to 120MP Full-Frame. Resolution-wise we're not done until reaching pixel sizes of about 0.25 micron.

This. I assume they will have to replace 85/1.2, 50/1.2, 35/1.4 and 24/1.4 (the latter not likely anytime soon ofc).
