At this point, I am neither interested in the form factor (with or without built-in grip) or its price; I just want to know if Canon has the sensor technology to achieve superlative dynamic range at low ISO without any banding whatsoever. If it has, that will be a great consolation because it means I can continue to invest confidently in Canon stuff while I wait for the sensor technology to trickle down to their lower end bodies...

We'll see.

9000$? Why not just get a MF system then?  :o

How many lenses are available for MF systems?

My thoughts exactly, that Pentax 645D looks even more tempting after this rumor.

The 645D is a fantastic camera and has just had a 30% price reduction in the UK.  has been weather tested to below -10C.

At least the name makes sense 1S, S=Studio but $9000 doesn't make sense in this one 8)

Super expensive elephant camera (1D class).

Looks like the ones of us waiting for a "Canon D800" can just forget our hopes and dreams for now.  :-\

People need to understand the price game better.

If Canon charges $9000 for this body, and they might, then it's strictly positioning.

If you're an amateur you want gear to be as good as possible and as cheap as possible. A no brainer.

But if you're a pro?

Let's say that your invested in Canon and that your business is sustaining high end gear. You are charging your clients  a premium because you use the good stuff. You market yourself as such. The best gear sets you apart from amateurs.

Would you like that all the latest and greatest equipment become instantly available to every trigger happy "freelancer" out there?

I've heard on numerous occasions that Canon actively sets their better tech apart from entry level stuff by price. Just look at what's out there now. It's especially obvious in their Cinema Line of products.

And it's going to stay that way. Might as well get used to it. Don't have to like it.

<p>There was also another mention of superior low ISO performance from the sensor. New technology will be introduced in this camera and will set the stage for sensor development over the next 2-3 years.</p>


sounds very promising if true.
seen many sensor technology improvements from sony, all baby steps but definitely worth applauding

if canon somehow manage to make a big significant leap forward in terms of sensor technology, it would be fantastic

Kinda $hitty of Canon to say the new 1DX is their "flagship" only to come out with the "real" flagship shortly afterward.  ???

Does Pentax offer tethered shooting with the 645D?  That was the biggest problem with that camera.

Don't worry, the actual camera(s) won't be on Retailers shelves to somwhere in mid-term of the new american president.  Canon hasn't shown us their ability to announce and actually deliver in quanity any of their top tier gear (like 1DX and the super-tels) for 6 months to 18 months later than the announcement.  I wish it wasn't so but they have not shown us this capability recently.

This frustrats me....the 1dx is the flagship for spots action and events!  This will be the studio flagship, both types of shooting have different needs and thus the bodies will be spec'ed in a different way (It will be some time before you have a studio quality body that has high MP and high fps and outstanding high ISO performance).  If your a sports shooter then go 1dx.  If you a slow shooter and wanting outstanding IQ between ISO 50-400 then this new beast may be for you!

And don't forget and don't get all pissy, but it makes sense to intro this in the flagship.  I brought it up before, look at the announcement for the 1dx - and when it was actually available - vs when the 5d3 was announced and available.  The tech was shared (sensor, AF), but the 5d3 body was easier to mass produce, thus that made its way to the market first.  I'd guess we'll see something similar here (maybe already in process, I have been wondering if the new 6d sensor is partly based on this new sensor).  Either was...If this is the 1S, then we'll probably see a 5s (at closer to d800 prices) announced in the spring and available by summer....

What this means to me.

As a new owner of a 5D3 (two weeks) I will be upgrading to the 5D4 with future sensor tech in 2015. Look if I had the money or interest in a 9k body/system I'd get a MAMIYA 645 DF
