1. Canon's new FF range is 1D X and 5DIII. Do you intend buying either of these (or both or more than one)? Please be honest, window shopping doesn't count.

Pending the availability of high ISO raw images for the 1DX, I "intend" to pick up a 1DX which is extremely useful for my work in theatre, dance, ans sports. If your suggested "3D" in #3 below does not come out this summer/autumn at Photokina time, I suspect I will also pick up a 5D-III as a "better 5D-II" - hopefully at a reduced priced compared to today.

2. If Canon introduced a 1Ds X, as the 1D X but with FF sensor made using the 60D pixel (45MP), 6FPS, for a list price of $8000, would you buy this? If so, and you had intended buying a 1D X or 5DIII, would you buy the 1Ds X instead or as well?

No - very high pixel count is not often needed for my work and price is a constraint here. My existing 5D-II's are adequate for resolution and IQ.

3. If Canon introduced a 3D, 5DIII with the 45MP sensor above, 3 FPS, otherwise as 5DIII, for a list price of $3500, would you buy this? If so, and you had intended buying a 1D X, 1Ds X or 5DIII, would you buy the 3D instead or as well?

I would buy both the "3D" and also the 1DX. The "3D" is a "want to have" rather than "need" - but more pixels are sometimes very useful.
