I can't imagine what a Mark III would have that would make me want to upgrade.
Better AF (faster more cross points), weather sealing (good for some people), flash control from the body, more video modes with higher bit rate, gps, wireless connectivity for viewing on a laptop while shooting, few extra megapixels, higher fps... lots of things could be improved or added to make it better.

Nothing there that would prise another $3,000 out of my pocket.

wow.. what do you want from it? just curious!

I have a D90 and I am planning to get a FF so I am waiting for new D700 or this III

+ an up-to-date dust removal and even better high iso

Like I said, there is nothing I can think of. Weather proofing would be nice but not nice enough to justify spending $3k to add a Mk3 to the Mk1 and Mk2 I already have. All the things in the list are "maybe that would be nice to have if I ever need it" additions, not essentials. The real killer on the upgrade from Mk 1 to Mk 2 was the dust removal system. Video was interesting but personally I already have enough to do without getting into that in any serious way.

Of course, if I didn't already have the Mk2 then I would be interested in what a Mk3 might have to offer (and I would probably hold off spending until a new version came out).

I'm really anxious to see what the new MIII specs are.

I'm going to speculate that the new X model will be the fast sports/news camera and the MIII will be the slower hi-res/landscape camera.

18MP and slow performance in the MIII would be a sales flop unless they added some new magical features (better video?) to make up for that. And if Nikon's D800 does end up being 30MP+ the MIII would get killed in sales along with seeing some Canon to Nikon defectors. This would be a bad move by Canon and I wouldn't buy this version.

28MP/30MP+ makes sense. This route would be the slower performing hi-res version that wouldn't compete with the new high priced fast X model. Big megapixel cameras are dirt cheap now so Canon, and all the others, don't have a whole lot of options here but to go bigger MP and affordable. If it's around the same price range as the MII I would buy this version.

^^^ I think it is highly unlikely that the MkIII, whenever it does arrive, will have extra MP. If Canon had developed such a sensor they would surely have offered it in a new 1Ds version first.

Not if the priority was "fast". Shooting/processing 30mp images would compromize the fps.

In which case they wouldn't have combined the 'new' 1D & 1Ds into the X __ which they have. Ergo there is no new extra MP sensor that has been developed.

"Ergo there is no new extra MP sensor that has been developed..." that you know of.

The 5DMII seemed to sell unbelievably well which could justify investment in a new sensor. The 5DMII was a parts-bin camera which allowed the low price and was probably hugely profitable.

A new sensor could probably be used in other areas for Canon such as new video camera models. The MIII would just need to be dumbed down a bit to prevent competing with other Canon still and motion products.

I would be much more interested in lower noise than higher MPs. If it went up to 22 or 24 that would be negligible, as long as noise is reduced. Plus, the focusing system needs a major upgrade. Not sure if all of these things will convince me to trade in my MkII though.

Canon Rumors posted about a possible new competitor to the 1DX.

Nikon seems to have learned. So like I said, one fast camera, one slower high res camera.

If Canon is planning to use the 1DX sensor in the new 5DMIII and just dumb the speed they are going to get spanked hard by Nikon's D800.

I love my 5DMII but if the MIII doesn't have something big I'll have no reason to upgrade. Better focusing, higher res sensor, better video, and more features would open my wallet.

5dMarkII down to less than 2K now at Adorama:  http://www.adorama.com/ICA5DM2.html?emailprice=t&utm_term=Other&utm_medium=Others&utm_campaign=Other&utm_source=joelm

Could this be them dumping their stock as quickly as possible in anticipation of the new version hitting the shelves?

It does match what has happened at times in the past when a new product was due.

Apparently the 5D mark III has been spotted in the wild

Yeah and I hear they were shooting unicorns with it

Would be nice to see some solid specs. Most recent rumors say the sensor won't be more megapixels (18-22) but will have faster performance. That doesn't make sense. Isn't that a 1DX?

Nikon seems to have got it right with one high performance (D4) and one high res (D800) camera. Hopefully Canon doesn't botch this by launching a 5DMIII that has people scratching their heads.

Don't think so. It appears to have a battery grip fixed to the body which makes the camera look bigger than it is. The 200-400mm lens does give the story some authenticity __ unless it is an elaborate hoax!

When I said "isn't that a 1DX" I didn't mean literally. I meant that if they made the 5DIII 18-22MP with faster performance, wouldn't that basically be similar as a 1DX? This wouldn't make sense. I would have no reason to drop a few grand on a camera that's a little faster than my 5DII. Plus if the D800 is 30+MP, Nikon will be eating into Canon's market share in this segment.

Yeah, that would seem a little confusing to have two cameras with very similar specs, but that is also what they did with the 1Ds Mark III and the 5D - essentially identical except for more buttons, battery, focus points on the 1D so it wouldn't surprise me if the rumors are correct about the 5D ...

Perhaps they will launch an additional camera that is a megapixel hog.  You'd think they need something to compete with Nikon's supposed D800 (lots of megapixels) and medium format cameras.

I wish only one thing: better dynamic range on sensor, that's all.

I don't think that the new 5D will have the same MP count ( or between 18-22MP) a 28-32MP will be a fair count.  The pics from Africa i believe is a 7D MK2 or a 5DX

Are you voting for a 5DX AND a 5D Mark III??

I sure would have thought that the next 5D would be a high MP count but all the rumors are saying that it will be around 22MP.  I would have also guessed that the new 1Dx would have been a high MP count as well

I vote for a 7Dmk2  without a pop-up flash and an APS-C or APS-H sensor, or a 5DX ( 5Dmk2 combined with 7D).

If the rumors are true, 5Dmk3 with 22MP, than i believe we will see a new camera ( with high MP count) from canon in near future.

Is it possible to "build our own" camera??  A la a Dell Computer???

I'll take ...
- a 21MP APS-H sensor
- 8 fps
- Dual Digic 5 processors
- Infrared controller flash (pop-up if need be)
- ISO to 25,600 (max)
- Sensor cleaning
- whatever else....

etc.....

Just curious
