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

If the high MP camera cost over than 7K, Nikon will be very happy.

All depends on whether they put it in a 5 body or a 1 body.
If it's a 5 body, price about 4K. With a 1 body, price about 7K.

What about Option #3 a new shaped body? After all, Canon may now wish that the 1DC was not identical in appearance to the 1DX. The fact that CR guy tells us that it will not be part of the EOS range i.e. a new designation could possibly mean that it might be radically different (e.g. bigger LCD with touch screen + fewer physical buttons). Who knows. 'Price' then becomes a moot point.

Saving for the 3d (if that's the name)? Then predict here what the price of the high-mp body will be!
voted for "sell your car". I figure it will be priced and marketed like a 1-series body and therefore priced similarly to the 1DX.

Geez all this $4500-$5000 is complete wishful thinking, just like when everyone thought the 5D3 would be $2500, it's what they wanted it to be.  The 1DS3 was was like $7k or so when it was released, I think this new high megapixel cam will be just as high.  Canon charged it before and got away with it, they're not going to sell a 46mp cam for $4500 out of the kindness of their hearts.  Just think about that figure, 46MP, no way that's going to be a reasonably priced camera.

If the high MP camera cost over than 7K, Nikon will be very happy.

If they ask more than 6k I WILL make pentax very happy.

645d dropped below 9k point as of recently.

The only reason the 1Ds3 was, correction $7999 when released, was because back in 2006-2007, R&D for that type of camera, and the making of such a camera, cost a heck of a lot more than it does today.  Even the 1Ds2 was $8k upon release.  Times have changed, this technology isn't such a huge cost relatively speaking as it was back then.

I hope it's around $4500 and hopefully it will push down the price of the 5D3.

To be honiest its pretty much impossible to guess because we don't know what where guessing about, at least with the 5D3 we had some idea of its specs before release.

If this camera follows in the footsteps of the 1Ds, has a big gripped body, the same advanced metering and other pro features and still highish FPS then the price is obviously likely to be very high. If on the other hand it ends up being in a body very similar to the 5D3 but with lower FPS then a price somewhere between that camera and the 1Dx seems more likely.

Theres also the sensor itself, if its a typical bayer just pushed to a higher level then thats likely to result in a lower price than if its some kind of new tech.

I voted 4500$, but now I'm changing my mind.

I don't think Canon will put this camera DIRECTLY against the D800 at the same price point. I think they will do a "pimp-my-cam" version of the D800 in a 1D body and sell it for +7000$.

I think it will depend on how much innovation they put in the camera and how many fps it can do. They have a lot more competition than before so I am hoping they will really push the envelope. I am guessing between US$ 7,000 and 8,000.

About the body size, I'm hoping it will be a rebel sized body, with 5D build quality.

Hope dies last - that's why I did this poll, it's interesting to see user's expectations vs. the real Canon releases & prices. I really like my 60d & my lenses, but Canon is really on the wrong track for enthusiasts at the moment, and not every wish is an unreasonable "I want a 5d3 for $1000" dream.
