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


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).

Wow, I didn't know that all of those lenses are outresolved by the 7D.   ::)

Shows what you know!   :P

Sorry, couldn't resist!
2 x 1DX
Big Ten, GLIAC, NCAC

$7000-$8000.  Priced and marketed in parallel with the 1Dx as a flagship camera for the segment of users that complained about the 18mps of the 1Dx.  You know who you are, now's your chance to put your money where your mouth is.

I don't see it costing more than the 1D X, since that camera is Canon's flagship.  Also, I doubt the 3D/6D/etc will be weather-sealed like the 1D-series, include a CF shutter rated to 400k cycles, built-in battery grip, etc.

Who knows? Maybe the two lenses to be announced with it might be specifically designed to maximize the performance of the 46.1 MP sensor.  :P

Since they are calling it the 3D maybe it will have eye control focus!  (dreaming)

<strong>More confirmations of a big megapixel body for PhotoPlus<br />


</strong>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.</p>
<p>It’s also suggested that 2 other lenses could be appearing for PhotoPlus, though those details have yet to be finalized.</p>
<p>Last year for PhotoPlus, Canon announced the EOS-1D X. It is a show Canon has been known to make a splash with.</p>
<p><strong><span style=\"color: #ff0000;\">c</span>r</strong></p>


I believe Canon had this sensor and the technology to mas produce ti for some time (2-3 years) but  they were somewhat afraid to be the firs that announce a FF sensor with Medium Format resolution. After seeing the huge success and IQ of the  Nikon D800, they hurry to deliver it.

It's been a while since I saw a CR3 rating at a rumor and this is no different...
Yeah, a big MP camera is coming soon... It doesn't take a genius to predict that!

Why? All they will do is firmware upgrade the 1dx and it will be 46 mp. lol Now they can use the 1dx for 1dc and 3dx.

Any thoughts?

but what's the price point going to be?

Also, what will the price be?

Or perhaps they're calling it the EOS 3D because it will have 2 x 23.05MP sensors (left-eye & right-eye) ???

I think they are the same company and people.  They just get us to fight it out on which is the better flavor of the year while they make money either way.  :o  ;)
