5DX / 3D launch
In reply to Josh152, Mar 22, 2012

I think Canon can keep the price of the 5DX/3D under control if they leverage the research and engineering of the 5D3 Body and retrofit it with newly developed higher pixel pitch sensor. Granted the new sensor will cost a lot to develop and produce but should be able to amortized over the 100,000's that will be sold. I bet there are many prototypes in beta testing like the 120 MP APSH sensor they announced last year. They should be able to reverse engineer some of the superior sensor tec of the new Sony designs as well as tap into their own wealth of research and development assets. My guess is they could easily launch this high resolution model at $3500 usd dropping to $2999 usd after 6 to 12 months.
