Let's pretend that the 1DX is exactly what it is today, only it was released with the 1Ds2 in late 2004/early 2005.  I wonder what it would cost!!  :)

Better sensor...

If the 1S really has a better sensor and that technology trickles down into the other DSLRs following its release then I'm very glad that I'm not getting into bed with any of the Canon 2012 DSLRs.

Really Canon? One must spend 9k just to get that long awaited bump in DR?

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

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

Yep, 1DS III was $8000 at release and for the first few months.
Do you know how long it took before it took to come down a bit?  And do you remember what it came down to?

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.  :-\
Give it a rest.  You're not the target market for this camera so Canon doesn't care what you think of the size or anything else about the body for that matter.

new sensor tech introduced over the next two years.... that´s good.

im not buying a 5D MK3 or the 6D.
on low iso performance, what is most important for me, both offer me not enough improvement to pay the price.

as i have to much canon glass i won´t switch to nikon.

so i will stick to my canon bodys and do some fancy photo vacations with the money canon will not get from me.

let´s see what the future sensors will bring. 
6D, 5D MK2, 7D, 550D... a lot of Glass.

'IF' this camera is aimed at the medium format crowd, I'm not so sure thats a wise game to play.
1] It's a small market anyway
2] System switching, how many hasselblad owners are really going to part with their gear...
3] Sensor size. Ok so if this new sensor gives 'medium format quality', you still have to convince people that a smaller sensor is the way to go and it will be like trying to convince full frame users that apsc has the same Iq.

It'll probably sell well to studios that do indoor and outdoor shooting and require that versatility. but if I had that kinda money, I'd get a large format camera with a MF digital back. I know they're aqward and cumbersome but there's just something so rewarding about using one. You have to think about EVERTHING you do

With Canon updating their technology so often, it's safe to say that it would be wise to rent these new bodies if one was a professional. That would be the only sensible way to stay on top of the competition, and not go broke trying to out-do the "Jones'" ...... when it comes to producing the cleanest/clearest photo.  ::)

I think we're all aware of that. But I think, too, that Canon is leaving a lot of money on the table by not producing a direct D800 competitor.

Sony and Samsung have a lot more $$$ to invest on R&D, let's not forget that.

Samsung has, but not Sony. As a matter of fact, Sony is dying. Just look at their overall financial reports, they are bleeding bad, real bad.

9K to compete, what a joke, Canon really are a big monopoly

IF this new sensor technology is true, and Canon needs to set up a new sensor plant just to cater for the new manufacturing process, then it does not surprise me that Canon implements this high pixel count camera in a $9000 body. Early adopters of this high pixel count camera are merely paying for the non-recurring engineering (NRE) costs.  ;D

Canon is thinking long term here and good for them. Maybe they missed a beat with a D800 killer (Although I'm pretty happy with my 5D3 and C glass) but they'll probably kick Nikon's ass for a few years in a row with this rumored sensor's trickle down.

If it is 9k then they are probably just protecting the 5D rather than competing with the D800

Imagine if they released a 50mp camera for less money than the 5D3....it would screw Canon's marketing for sure.

If they do release a high MP body then it has to be damn amazing because if it isn't I'd rather spend 9k on a D800E and a few lenses and have both brands onboard.

It came down pretty fast actually, because of the 5D Mark II.  I remember it retailing when the 5D2 was new for $6899, then $5999, then $4999, until the used prices went under $4k when there weren't any new ones anymore.
