This new camera is a 'Wall Breaker!'  ;)

Great news, I guess. The question is how much will it cost?

I very much doubt it. Way too much of a shift from Canon's recent positions.

50MP is more than overkill. like using a Ferrari to drive across town to do your shopping when a secondhand boneshaker is all u need.

The trouble is, the girls don't hang around my Hyundai outside the supermarket the way they do with my neighbour's Ferrari  :(
(And my pickup line of "Hi, girls, fancy a ride on my boneshaker" never seems to attract any interest, for some reason)

 ;D ;D ;D  nor are you going to attract too many skirts saying  you're a microstock photographer earning 33cts a picture when your other neighbour is tossing burgers  ;D ;D ;D

seriously,  this 50MP is still going to give you a 35mm digital format.

nofreelunch... do u mean to say BALL  buster???

Sad part is that the folks getting this camera are just point and shoot folks that want to look good amongst their peers at social gathering (picnic, play-theater) - and the camera will in the 'Auto- Mode' setting  :-[

Except when I work in studio (using the Manual mode), the Auto mode has always been the best for me
What is your problem with Auto mode?

My super duper Nikon D810 si way more than enough for me... Seriously guys, do you know how difficult is to keep your image tack sharp and without shake at 36mpix when zooming? And do you know how challenging is to find fitting glass of quality to match this sensor? Well, good luck with 50mpix :-)

Yup - I've got some problems with camera shake on recent tripod-mounted shots from my 6D. I guess it needs mirror lock-up as well for longer exposures. 50MP must be like shooting large format, with hand-holding not really an option for anything more demanding than news.  I hadn't thought about the glass, but of course the small sensor size compared with old-time 4x5 or 8x10 inch negs (where a resolution of 40lp/mm was fine) means the glass would need to be considerably sharper to achieve the same sort of quality.

I have a D800 and getting sharp images is no different than any other camera I've owned. As long as I apply basic photography rules I get good results. If I try shooting 300mm f/16 at 1/60 handheld I would expect the images not to be sharp on any camera.

Certain Canon lenses are excellent and I would expect those not to have any problem with 50MP.

Who cares how much it costs? I don't have to buy it. The business buys it!  ;)

Waiting, Waiting...

"Were told the embargo/NDA expires on Friday, February 6, 2015 for these upcoming products. These products would line up with the CP+ show in Japan next month.

    The two high megapixel cameras, with and without an AA filter. Resolution is said to be 53mp (though the pixel count is not CR3)
    The EOS Rebel T6i/750D.
    EF 11-24 f/4L
    EOS M3 Camera
    Various PowerShot cameras"

http://www.canonrumors.com/2015/01/big-announcements-coming-next-week-cr3/

I'm kind of wondering more about the T6i and what they are adding, and the M line (which I own the original, apparently they had a M2 which was never released in the US) So the 3 won't have some features of the invisible M2, like no WiFi (ho hum, I don't care) but rumored to have a remote, which is something I use.

Meanwhile the 11-14 seems to have leaked, and various Powershot cameras is more of "Exciting News" which isn't.  ;) That leaves the OP on this.

New 50-something MP full frame camera and the starting question. How much will it cost? More than I can afford is the easy answer, but it's still going to be fun to look at?

Rumor says, tomorrow will be the big news release, and just in case someone thinks I missed it. Tomorrow here is today in Japan in just minutes.

It's 5:49 AM  Friday, February 6, 2015 there, business day will start soon. (here it's 2:49PM)

Pricing looks pretty good, time to upgrade I guess.

Nice, but I'm waiting to see what Sony comes up with.

I love my NEX-7 and if they do 50MP in a similar size A-series body I have no reason to buy a DSLR. So nice to travel with one small light bag, small body and a couple lenses than a 50lb backpack full of stuff.

I also have a D800/28-300mm which is great but still big, bulky and heavy compared to the NEX. Plus Canon's 28-300mm is a monster so for my goal of downsizing, Canon as a whole doesn't fit my needs. I love my 5DMII but I haven't regularly used it in a couple years and my collection of Canon lenses are collecting dust. As time goes on neither Canon or Nikon seem to be the platform that fits my needs.

Totally agree. I still have my 5d2 plus various glass but am really enjoying MFT.

Here's the 60 second B&H intro, includes the new T6i T6s  24MP Rebels - The difference between the two models is that the T6s features a topside LCD panel, a Quick Control Dial, an integrated Horizontal level and Built-in HDR in movie mode.

Interesting reply from B&H Rep. "Any advantage for video over the 5D III would be slim, if any.  So, if you mainly use your 7D for video, the 5D III might be the better option.  Also, keep in mind that with video, these cameras arent using their entire sensor: there is line skipping.  This means that the resolution of the sensor isnt something one can really go off to determine the video quality one can achieve. "

I'm happy with my ##-D series right now, not going to change just because something new comes out with a bigger MPs. When is size not a factor anymore?

I won't be buying one of these new 50mp Canons.  I've seen the sample images and the full size quality looks rather disappointing to my eye - similar to APS-C with much more noise than my 5Dii.  Perhaps there will be an intermediate camera somewhere in the 32/36mp area, and I'll wait for that.

Nice that Canon finally made a move but I've already moved on from DSLRs. My 5DMII and D800 are collecting dust. I'm now shooting with a Sony A7R and will wait to see if Sony comes out with a 50MP version. Still have all of my Canon lenses and will do some testing on the A7R with a Metabones adapter.

You who are buying this camera, are you going for the DS or DSR version?

I'm being tempted by the greater sharpness of the DSR version, but at the same time I'm afraid of excessive moire. I haven't seen anywhere any comparison between the versions (same scene with both models)

Which version are you going to buy?
