It wouldn't make any sense for Canon to price a DSLR that high.  You might as well buy a used hassy at that price.  I bet it will be under $5000 - if this rumor is true, of course.

well everything is possible.. it could be that this camera even has the rumored square sensor. :)

by the way im speaking from an european viewpoint.
the 1D X costs ~8500$ here already.
so it´s not such a stretch...

Yeah, you guys get screwed.

Not if you consider I make 65k a year as a seller in a store... we can always buy half off from the US  :P

No, I still have one year full warranty. I even used it once to adjust my 300.

i know a media markt department manager in germany who makes 2100 euro NETTO.
that translates into ~25000 euro a year after tax.

i would really like to know where a simple sales clerk (no offense) in europe makes 65k $ ... not to mention 65k euro....

I meant 65k usd, not euro. That would've been fun! And of course no offense taken, I am a sales clerk by choice, no responsibillty, good money, and I get to talk photogear all day with all sorts of weird, interesting, funny and knowledgable people.

I thought we had all gone over this many time before that a square sensor cannot exist due to mirror clearance issues (unless of course it is 24mm x 24mm, which would be pointless)?

in case you did not notice we just put a rover on mars.  ;)
the easiest way is to make the camera mirrorless.

and hey im not saying canon will do that im just saying it is rumored.   ;)

We do not only  put it on mars :-D  we put a freaking rocket powered flying crane on mars and lowered it from that ;)  After letting it fly 563,000,000 km trough Space! Just 2,4 km away from the spot we wanted :D  That is just like hitting a hair  280 Km away ;)

So let canon-engineers do there job and bring us something new! 
square-sensor ?  problem with moving mirror ? let it stay and make its reflectivity electronic controllable ;)
you are skeptical about that? look at you automatic dimming rear mirror in you car ... its exactly that ;)
 
 just  the tip off the iceberg off  what is physically possible ;)

How many of these people are unknowns with no history to CR, and are just repeating rumors back with a little daydreaming thrown in?
