I do not understand why most people here think it's bad? It does have AFMA (same AFMA as 5D3, with different MA for wide and tele with zooms). It'll be very good in high ISO's, and have better AF than 5D2. It's very light and a lot less expensive than 5D2 at the time of release. It's not meant as a replacement for a 5D3, it's meant as a modern alternative for a 5D2. The price will drop anyway. AF-points could have been more, but then they would end up with a bigger body and Canon chose not to.
I do not see much point in comparing this with the Nikon D600 as that's a Nikon :-). I don't change brands because something else can give me 'more' for the same money. In that case, everyone with a crop would buy the new Pentax K5-II, isn't it?
