46.1MP Canon EOS 3D shows up on B&H website

A Canon EOS 3D entry showed up earlier today on B&H website (now removed). The camera was listed to have a 46.1MP sensor in a 1 series body, just like the rumors from the past few weeks.

As reported by PhotographyBay there seems to be several issues with this entry and the consensus is that this is probably a mistake or just a placeholder.

    Better bring the promised dynamic range

    HS! More megapixels? What are we gonna do with those monstrous files?

  • Bernard

    This 2D looks neato…


    100MP and 4K Vid Quad Digic 5+

    I sure hope it has eye control… or as it’ll be known “iControl”.

  • B&H is closed today. This is not from B&H, it’s a hoax. The entire company is shut down till the 10th for the Jewish Holiday of Sukkos. They do not update the website during this time (how do I know about that? I work there)

    • Must be fun to work there… with all the holidays and everything 🙂

      Yeah – there are claims that a 54mp D4x was also spotted there too. An EOS 3D and a D4x on the same day did seem rather unlikely.

      • yes, somebody is spreading jokes, D4x is not coming anytime soon.

    I don’t think Canon has a single lens to match that resolution.
    There will be a lot of oversampled images out there, unless one uses Zeiss lenses.

      Canon have plenty of extremely sharp and highly resolving lenses – most of them in the ‘L’ range, and mostly primes. The 35mm f/1.4, 85mm f/1.8 (@> f/2.0), 100 f/2.8 macro, 135mm f/2.0, 70-200mm f/4, 200mm f/2.0 are all absolutely superb lenses (in my experience). The new 24-70mm f/2.8 II appears to be amazing, but I haven’t used it so far.

      Does it matter if the sensor out resolves the lenses? At least that way it should enable you to get every last bit of resolution out of your lenses.

      Funny, you never hear people complaining that a lens has too much sharpness for a line of cameras, but build a high megapixel camera and all sorts of ‘experts’ will line up to tell you what a waste it is. I wonder if in the 1880s people bitched over the telegraphs about whether the 8×10 camera was too much camera for the lenses of its day.

    If it was on Amazon yeah, but B&H is normally last to update even after the items has been launched.
