Not me - 1D / 1Ds is too big for me.

I have a 1D4 and a 5D2... One suits fast, distant subjects that need autofocus and the other suits landscapes and manual focus. No matter how good the newbie turns out to be, my skills are way short of extracting everything from either of the cameras I own....

So.... unless one of them falls over and can't be fixed, I'll probably pass on this round.


Several cameras and more glass than I will admit to.

I dont have a 5D, but if this new 1D really has low MP-count and great AF, it shall be mine.

Jay, I guess you have missed the whole image quality vs megapixels debate, huh?

Nope, haven't missed a thing.

Ricku wrote in post #13243229 (external link)
Surprising question.

Because more megapixels is not always better. I am not a wildlife photographer and I have no need for the silly megapixel race.

If it is a 1-series FF body, that's an area that's been tickling the soft underbelly of MF and now some rumor site thinks Canon will pull back from that by half? Nope...

I'll buy the potential for a 5DMlI/7D "marriage" that might put snappier AF and possibly a higher frame rate in an "affordable" FF body but not a 1DsMk... that's neutered in resolution. Especially if Nikon Rumors have any validity as regards their potential 30+ MP offering that may (or may not) be right around the corner.

Can't wait to bomb dodongos.

And yeah, who wants to lose 1/3 their resolution? Specs considered, this sounds too similar to the 16mp 1D Mark IV, with the 16-18mp resolution, and frame rates only 1/5 to 2/5 faster...huh? Somehow all these impressive specs require dual DIGIC V CPUs?

I was so very tempted to just ask CR guy if he's gone insane. If he's right, I'll be very impressed (although I'm not sure I'll be impressed with Canon if this silly thing is their serious next entry in the 1D line).

I'm just excited about anything new that comes out of Canon's factory and very anxious to see this new beast.

People who shoot landscapes, the downgrade in megapixel is a great deal. Especially when you are expected to pay more to top up for it.

People who also shoot weddings for a living like my partner, I think it is worth a shot. Dual Card Slots, better auto-focus and probably better ISO performance would be tempting.

for all we know it could be very possible. Canon recently had a full page advertisement showing the 1-Series on the Today newspaper here in Singapore:)

Precisely. Im not saying that this camera does exist. It is only a rumour, a very strong rumour tho.

I just think it is a little bit strange to see all the "instant naysayers" and radical non believers. Why are some people being so doubtful?

It will be interesting to see their reactions if these specs prove to be real. :)

Whatever the specs may be, my face will be poker face.

Arguing for a camera that doesn't yet exist or arguing against a camera that doesn't yet exist...

Is either camp based more in reality than the other?

Probably around $7,495.00 - a bargain as usual!

So, will have to book 2 - just in case.

Legend of Zelda fan, I see!

And if this was a spec sheet for the new 1, I'd be jealous...but at that price tag, I'll enjoy my 5.

Why would you give up nearly a third of your resolution?

I'm fine with 12mp 5dc, and have yet to encounter a situation where I needed the full resolution of my 5dii.. it's what I shoot in, but it does nothing but use more hd space and slow down my editing.

~16-18mp in a full frame camera with great high-iso and a functional autofocus neeeeds to happen.
