If the 1DX is the amalgamation of the 1DS and the 1D why would Canon ever manufacture a new 1DS or 1D? It would defeat the purpose and undermine the sale of the 1DX.
If the 5DX is the amalgamation of the 5D and 7D why would we ever see a new 7D?
I hope I'm wrong.
The clearest thing to me right now, when you look at the images of the safari camera, and when you look at the CR3 specs, the 5DX is a new FF 7D. Similar button layout, action oriented, multipurpose camera, great video.
IF the 3D exists it will make Canon's lineup invincible with three FF cameras and it will serve as the true 1DS/5DII replacement. But where's the evidence of this camera? I want to see the evidence so so bad, because it's the camera I want to buy!
I think instead of releasing a 3D, the rumored CR3 camera should be the 7DII, and the 5DIII should be the uber MP landscape/portrait camera we're all dreaming of.
