Much Ado About Rumors

With rumors of new upgrades to Canon full-frame cameras repeatedly flooding in like a tsunami, I thought it best to put together a wishlist of specs that I'd like to see.

Before I jump into those numbers , here is what I consider the target market and purpose of each of the "current" offerings. 
EOS 6D                - Advanced:      Casual/Travel/Landscape
EOS 5D Mark-III  - Professional:  General Purpose Stills + HD-Video
EOS 1Ds Mark-III - Professional:  Studio/Portrait/Landscape
EOS 1D-C             - Professional:  Do-It-All Stills + 4K-Video
