Sony A7ii because Canon have lost the PLOT!

I think we should all begin to focus on the things we do agree on so as to avoid rehashing so many of the same topics and arguments time and again:
1. The Sony sensor (D800/e) has the most DR from ISO 100-800.
2. DR levels out and advantage is gone after ISO 800.
3. 5D3 sensor does better in higher ISOs.
4. More DR is useful (and nice to have) but not always/or even often necessary.
5. Each sensor has it's own advantages AS WELL as disadvantages neither of which should be ignored when when assessing IQ or level of advancement in technology.
6. Everyone has differing needs when it comes to photography which most of us in here cannot account for.
Things to avoid since they are so clearly untrue/baseless and continue to cause unnecessary debate due to their antagonistic nature:
1. Any blanket statements such as Nikon image quality "trounces" Canon's.
2. Pre-determining whether something is completely unuseful or not before it is in people's hands.
3. Making any other inferences about how good or bad the new bodies will be since again, they are not in people's hands yet.
I spent hours and hours trying to get it to work consistently on my PC and my 24-70L. Part of it was me, but I finally got it going.
There were no issues with the main AFMA portion, I was trying the extra tools like the testing of each AF point, the dust detection, the aperture test, repeatability, etc.
Eventually, I got them all run on my laptop, but my desktop did not like it. Its getting old, and might have some issues.
I'd like to spend more time and do it more carefully, but after running the wide and telephoto AFMA tests three times with the same results, I'm happy. First, I need to reread the manual. The AF point test seemed to vary, I think that I wasn't properly setup.
I will be looking at my images closely just to make sure everything is sharp.
There is more to this blinking than is normal. My wife's IDX performs perfectly & just blinks once when focus is achieved.
Mine however blinks constantly, less brightly & even when I don't have my finger on the shutter button.
Speed, (or others), any word back from Canon on the erratic/dimmed blinking of the focus points? You mentioned you sent them an email, and I am experiencing the same thing. Also, anyone else experiencing this phenomenon?
