I'm sure it's BS, but if not they can stick that where the sun don't shine. $9K.

If the $9000.00 is USD then we can be sure that will equate to $12000.00 for the Australian market where we will be rightly ripped off compared to anywhere else on Earth.

Yep, that price tag will definitely make me look seriously at the D800e.

Even staff discount would leave it a rip-off. At this rate 1D IV may be my last ever 1 series.

Far more interested in what a 7D II can bring to the table.

Let's hope it's not another 5D3, where the performance was overestimated, and the price underestimated.

5d3 seems to me pretty justified as an overall camera.

I'm looking to update/upgrade my 1DsMark III, merely because "it's that time" and certainly not for lack of image quality. But I'm not quite sold on the 1Dx. I'm firmly entrenched in Canon because of lenses, but if Canon's response is in the $7K-9K range, it certainly would give me more pause for thought whether to jump ship to Nikon (D800e). The savings from the msrp difference would offset losses from selling/buying new nikkor lenses and related accessories.

Oh I love mine, but you have to admit it didn't meet expectations for the development cycle, (MP, DR, etc. etc.) and the price was higher than anyone anticipated.

>= 40MP & 14 stops of DR at ISO 100 from raw w/ spot clean shadows, or GTFO with $9K.

I would like a no-fps high-res high image quality simple full-frame DSLR for less than the cost of the 5D3, even if that meant only a single AF point (which could then be up to f/8). The idea would be: no compromise on image quality or low price, but compromise everything else.




This is absolutely nonsense and a pure Canon-profit supporting statement as always from you. The D800 gives you everything, including very good AF. I don't see any reason why Canon should compromise in any regard, and why it couldn't release a Camera like this. There is only one reason holding Canon back from this: internal sort of competition with the 5D III since its price would drop to the ground after such new high MP FF would be released.



I'm amazed how much you know about the Canon Corp. without working there.

The only estimates came from silly threads like this. Select what you choose to believe more carefully.

Bitch, Bitch, Bitch over camera prices. Have any of you priced MF lately. At $9000USD a 46 MP Canon camera is a bargin in comparision. MF starts over $12,000 + lenses and Hassys and others wind up around $40/50 Thousand USD.

You whiners go back to your 5DIIIs and quit knocking the Hi MP. The 1DSIII was $8700USD when released (12/2007) and I have no regrets even though it hurt.

2007 was a very different time in regard to FF sensors. Please have a look at the current competition in this market and what the D800 for example can do for less than $3K, prices have come down a lot in this segment. A comparison to MF is invalid, sorry - it is like comparing apples and oranges. If Canon really does this move with a $9K high MP FF camera, more consumers will switch to Nikon than they already do.

Yep, but then there is the D800 at 1/3 that price. Really depends on what the market Canon is going after. If they want to lure over the MF crowd, then they better deliver more than just pixels with the new sensor. If they want it more a general high resolution landscape, studio camera competing against the D800, then their price needs to come down big time.

Pentax 645D is 8.8K and while matching AF lenses are few and expensive (55/2.8 is 1.2K, 25/4 is 5K and the 90/2.8 is not yet available), old manual focus lenses are wildly available at significantly lower prices.

Happy shooting,
Yakim.

Tell us how well the MF manufacturers are doing and how many have disappeared.

No one's stoping you buying MF so why are you bitching?

I did purchase a D800E in May and am very happy with it as an interium camera until canon releases the 46 MP replacement for the 1DSIII. I can't say I like Nikons ergonomics but the IQ will do for now. BTW I'm only bitching at the bitchers.

A canon 35 has a lot of ergonomic advantages over MF especialy for hikers that want to do landscapes. If I did studio photography I would have jumped to MF long ago. When I shot film I used a 2-1/4 X 2-1/4 Mamiya for hikes having to carry extra rolls of 220 film and change them in the field. What a PITA! I used a 4X5 Speedgraphics for non hikes.

Makes sense! BTW, what do you expect from a future 1Ds camera which the D800 doesn't already have (I am just curious)? Switching in your case to D800 makes sense to me. If there would be a way to use Canon EF lenses on the D800 (which is physically not possible) than even more people would get a D800 now (like myself I admit).
