Shame not including the new AF selector of the 7D-II. Also it will be best to put some indication of the camera name on the top plate to recognize it in a backpack with another 5D-III: they are identical.

Back the the topic, I am more concerned with how the DO will render the image as a whole, including the background / OOF areas. This feedback will ultimately come from the field and until such time, I'm keeping my fingers crossed as to how this performs from a holistic viewpoint.
Also, what is of concern to me is how this lens will play with TCs - somehow I have a feeling that it won't be as great as the non-DO superteles.
I like how Canon has a middle finger up to all the 1D IV buyers, the 7D get's a major 2.0 firmware update
and 1D IV is still at 1.1.1
Granted the 1D IV works great but 1D IV was announced later than the 7D an now it is already discontinued
from production with no new improvements in the firmware.
If you ask Canon they probably won't admit 1D IV ever existed and laugh at whoever bought it.
The photo has a metal loop that I think is not a part of the lens, but rather a part of an anti-theft device (the one with a metal wire that has a lock on one side, and a big lump on the other side that wouldn't pass through the loop).
