Saving for the 3d (if that's the name)? Then predict here what the price of the high-mp body will be!

Going by the 3D name I'd guess somewhere between the 5Dmk3 and thw 1DX

Canon's high MP / high DR body does not have to be insanely expensive. Just cripple the FPS, give it 16 point AF and native ISO up to 12800. It won't touch the 5D3 sales, nor the 1DX.

This camera is ment to compete with the D800 / D800E, and therefore  the price tag should not exceed 4K.

But then again, it is Canon we are talking about here. The camera will probably be overpriced.  :(

I tend to agree with the EOS-S name.

But rather than s for studio I am going for s for sardine tins - as in sardine tins are what you would need to build your house and shoes out of to afford the camera.

$9000 all the way.

I am curious about the wiseness of conducting such a poll, that any Canon employee can see for input from a biased group of consumers, albeit an important one for such camera....? :o

If Canon uses the 1Dx body, $9000+ is a real possibility. Look at what they did with the 1Dc. Of course, then potential buyers will be able to buy a D800 body plus Nikon 24-70 and 70-200 lenses instead and still have money left over.

My guess is that Canon isn't that stupid and will use a 5D3 body with two Digic 5+ processors, for a cost of $4500-5000. However, I think 3FPS would be quite adequate. I've never understood the obsession with high pixel count and high frame rate. When I do landscape photography, my frame rate is measured in tens of seconds or even minutes. And most studio strobes can't recycle faster than 2 or 3 FPS (although the real limit is how fast electricity can be sucked out of the wall).

It's not a poll "at what price will you buy it?" but "what do you think the price will be?" and the latter assumes we know their practices and pricing policy but not always intend to buy.

With Canon's recent pricing policy ($2300 for a 3 1/2 star lens) I am guessing it will be at least 50% higher than the competition.  The D800 is about $3000 and the 5D3 is $3500 so this will be between $4500 and $5K.

For whatever reason, Canon costs a little more for the same specs when it comes to their bodies - this seems to be the case pretty much across the EOS line.

When it comes to lenses though, it seems to be the opposite.

Depends if you're talking about lenses from the good ol' times or the newest releases (tele primes, new 24-70L, 100L)... recently Canon is more expensive all over - even with the new €500+ flash.

I expect $8K.  Canon has not been shy about their prices.

People even voted 9k (and when putting up the poll I though that would be the one like $2500 that is not realistic) :-o
