Im guess its Canon's chairman's special guest.

Though some of my sources in Taiwan says that there are some people using the 1Ds Mark IV as well, some lucky VIPs.

So will Canon unify the 7D and 5D lines? There's been some speculation to that effect though moving the 7D shooter from APS-C to FF is a much more radical move than moving the 1D users from APS-H to FF. So radical that somehow I doubt it...

While the lens is known, there is much speculation on the body.

Bob, to me I can't see a merging of the 5D and 7D lines. If anything, the end of the 1D APS-H line might put more pressure on Canon to provide an even better high end crop camera. The only way I see a 7D and 5D merging is by requiring the camera to do both jobs in the same body. I don't see that somehow... but I wouldn't say no to a 8fps 46MP full frame body at a 5D price!

I don't hope they'll combine the 5D and the 7D line. I could just imagine they'll rise the 70D again up a bit to the 50D level and then there is a more payable FF camera or something like that. But a camera with the combined features of the 7D and the 5D sounds expensive.

A "5DX" (what I saw someone calling it on CanonRumours) would be the perfect camera for me... expensive, probably, but perfect. I don't need a million frames per second, but I could use more than 4. I don't need a million AF points but I could (and do) use 19... The 7D ergonomics are perfect IMO and from the looks of those photos, whatever camera this turns out to be seems to have inhereted those. Love the joystick-on-grip as well, that's one thing that drives me nuts about my BG-E7 right now, as I have the stick setup to move AF points and I have to resort to the old-fashioned way when in portrait orientation.

If they want to merge the 5D2 and 7D, that could be a 3D perhaps?
I too feel it's a too radical move to make the 7D2 FF

I see they have the unnecessary locking mode dial. I honestly can't see how it can be knocked by accident.

If they do merge the 5D and 7D into one, Wildlife shooters will become disappointed that they are loosing the crop factor or forced to downgrade. Some people (I've spoken to) are happy with the smaller sensor, and it is also good for those upgrading from the consumer cameras.

I think they should include the grips in the box at no extra cost :D

Yeah, like the lens hoods that come with the L lenses. So the camera should be a 5DL coming with the grip :D

You know it wouldn't be without extra cost, so I'd rather not have an extra piece of junk I don't need to pay for.

Interesting developments could be with the awaited 5DMKIII, or could be more of a evolution than a revolution. But I believe Canon is committed to provide a high end APS-C (whatever the name) to value the EF-s line of lenses.
