Adam Filipowicz: I bet it will be $10k

It will be less than the flagship 1DX. The 4k video only works with 24p. If we want 60p or 120p would cost over $10k.
It will take the place of the APS-H 1D series price range maybe a bit cheaper because Canon knows the success relies on competitive pricing. Too high a price people lose interest or choose something else from RED or Sony. The 5D series will split. We may see another FF camera with inferior video at around $2k.

Canon has finally woken up and took the fight to Sony while Nikon dies in the swamp of Thailand.

I guess the 5DMk3 will be the high MP studio camera with emphasis on video, swivel screen and fill the void of the 1D price point of £3k. 7DMk2 will be the new APS-H camera and priced around £2k.

Taikonaut: Canon is moving back into the organic looking body last seen in the 1DMk2.

Yes really. Do you know what organic means?

Yes but the hacked GH2 has high bitrate over 100mbps if needed and the GH3 will get 1080p 60fps at higher bitrate but fraction of the cost.

Taikonaut: Have you ever been stopped or asked what you are doing when using your dSLRs at an event while hundreds of others using P&S and phone cameras don't get hasselled? This is the reason to go mirrorless.

A long lens with compact body you still have more chance than a dSLR body in not getting hasselled by concert organizers accusing you of making money from their show and trying to stop you.

@Maxfield_photo I'm talking about "events" type photos here not studio. Advantage of mirrorless are I can take it anywhere at shows, concerts, sports, etc, and don't face the same kind of attention or restriction a dSLR user might get.

I can see it being popular with high end MFT owners who also owns lots of Canon lens especially if they their MFT for video. The prices are still too high for most I feel. There is another company developing something similarand will give Redrock some competition.

007peter: OMG, we need to do the same in America. I can't use DSLR here without mall cops (security guard) getting in my face :(

I was taking pictures with an dSLR in a coffee shop in Amsterdam and the manager had issues with it.

Its being hacked as in they actually got it working at 50p and 60p just a matter of stabiliizing.

40mm is still rather short for a macro lens even on a cropped body.
