Literally. Very cool to see them finally! Looks like a 5D Mark III as well that he was testing (no visible top mount flash). I follow borrowlenses.com and they posted this blog article today on facebook.

That's the new 3DX. Canon saw the current poll here and decided to listen.

Bring on the 5D III... lenses look cool but expensive.

Testing this with long lenses on a safari, will this finally mean decent frame rate and better AF tracking? Not talking 1DX better but perhaps somewhere between 7D, 1D IV and 1D X?

On the presumed 5D III it looks like the LCD may have the same ratio as on the 1D X

...he's probably shooting for the press release preview shots, the lens field testing should be finished by now.

Wow, that looks very, very real! The battery grip with a new "joy stick" is indeed a joy for vertical shooting !

If they've increased the frame rate and upgraded the AF, I'll be happy even if resolution stays where it is. I'm tired of center point focus and recompose at event shoots. Eye control would be pretty cool as well.

Not 7DII - no flash
Not 5DIII - no articulating screen for video/landscape shooters

3DX

Nikon guy with a 4D to brag around about the missing 2MP, 10 points extra AF, Same ISO, Bigger screen and the lack of cool white lens---Miss (THAT would have been THE dream)

The 200-400L appears bigger than I thought. It looks like a 3 kg lens to me.

He is a Canon employee and not one of the Explorers of Light....

Hmm, maybe he doesn't fall under the non-disclosure agreement. Canon already announced the lens, so no biggie there. On the other hand, the camera is new and hasn't been announced yet. Hmmm, come to think of it, maybe Canon did want the world to know that they are working on a new camera body prior to the official announcement. Normally, Canon, when testing a new camera, tends to use a black housing to hide the new body.
