This one is basically impossible as it would require quantum

Seconded. You'd need a universe operating with different laws of physics for that to work.

If this rumour is true, it falls in line with my view of a top tier of specialist cameras from Canon.

The 1D will be the specialist high speed sports shooter. It will stay at relatively modest MP count in order to keep its noise under control. The only place to move from this supposed 1DmkIII is to go to a larger sensor, full frame being the next logical step.

The 1Ds will get a hike in megapixel count, but will be a studio specialist because of it. The lighting (or support) will have to be exceptional to make use of the resolution and it won't have appreciable high ISO capability. For high megapixel landscape work, larger formats will still have an edge.

The 5D will be the specialist shoot anywhere/available light camera. The smaller format will keep it a firm favourite with photojournalists.

For the studio pro, the choice is easy. For the pro sports shooter the choice is easy (birder too). For the photo journalist, the choice is easy.

Considering the next in the 30D line can only make a splash on the market with a 10MP sensor, I'd been hoping it would be a 10MP 1.3 crop. It would need to be for it to be a credible backup to any of the exceptional cameras we're all hoping to see announced soon.
