"Merging the lines" doesn't mean end of the line. I'd be very surprised if Canon doesn't announce a 1DsX or its equivalent as a replacement for the 1DsIII later this year or early next year. IMHO there's no way this 18mpx camera is going to be Canon's flagship model for the next three or four years.

I agree 100%. Yes, I will buy a 1D X but only for sport/airshows. My primary interest is landscape and for that 18mp is simply not good enough these days. I will hang on to my 1Ds3 for a while but if Canon does not come out with a 30+mp FF 1 series body I will have to look somewhere else. I want a 1 series body and not a 5D because I don't want to worry about rain/dust/cold when I am out in the wild and when I travel halfway around the world for a shoot I want the utmost reliability.

So Canon needs to do something else it will be the end of many years of happy Canon shooting on this side
