There are a few things on this specifications list that scream nonsense, but I’ll let you decide for yourself.
If this had shown up in my inbox, I would not have published it. However it was posted elsewhere, so here we are.

85mp? (taking a second look at the calendar) Aren't you a few weeks early?

I suppose you could get that much with a bit of pixel shifting, but at 20 fps it'd still require heaving lifting.

$8500!!?? Guess I'll be using my cardboard pin hole camera from middle school for a few years longer. :cautious:
Actually...for a flagship, this price likely makes sense.
Especially if you consider that Fuji is soon releasing a 100MP digital Medium Format camera, the gfx100S for about $6500 or so.

A Canon flagship if really near that performance with a full frame 85MP sensor and shooting speed....yeah, I can see that price point.

For those specs, I would see it more in the 10k to be honest.

This is no toy, its primary market is the pro sports/media outlets primarily so I'd expect it to be a reasonably hefty price like the 1dx mkiii was, although $8500 might be a bit out of reach for many in the current climate. In terms of specs it may well increase the MP to 40 but I see no reason why anyone would want or needs more than 20 fps, particularly in media work. I know a few media colleagues who have experimented with using the R5/R6 for sports and whilst they do work well, they struggle with so many frames to scroll through to tag images for editing. Very easy to hold the shutter button down when its completely silent and then realise you've taken 50 pics in a few short bursts. When you're working under time pressures in the field you don't need this. Be interesting to see what eventually appears, but I'd expect many of the increases in MP and FPS to be incremental and not mindblowing.

for me, tracking and stopping motion without a flash is a big deal. i have been very happy with the resolution of the 5d4 and would rather spend bandwidth on frames per second rather than pixels per frame.
