No option for none of the above???
No, because imho screwing 3rd party batteries is a given after the last 5d3 update and Canon ignoring any complaints about it.

Import pictures using Lightroom
Canon will eventually release it and it will sell like hotcakes.
It always amazes me as to how users think that AF is such a big issue with modern cameras, I guess that they somehow don't wonder how photos were taken for 100+ years without any autofocus at all, and yet fantastic images were captured of sporting events, bif, and other demanding events. Certainly, good AF is nice, but hardly a big issue for me. I did just as well with my Argus C3, my Yashica TLR, my Canon FTQL, any number of P&S cameras, and several early DSLR's. I have had several 1 series DSLR bodies as well as Rebels, all the 5D series, even a D800! I've had no issues capturing sports with any of them, its just a matter of paying attention and learning timing. There were probably a billion supurb images captured with those old Graphlex 4X5 cameras where you had to slide in the film carrier, then pull out the film cover, and capture the image as quickly as possible. Then reverse the process, flip the carrier over and take a image using the film on the other side. They could do that in a second or maybe two.
I recently discovered some old pre 1920's National Geographic issues in my attic, and, sure enough, there were great photos of sporting events, wildlife, and birds in flight from the early 1900's using primitive cameras, the photographer just learned to deal with what he had..
Get as good of a camera as you can afford, and learn to use it. You will do fine.
I am sorry but that is bunkum.
Yes we made fine images when we shot manual focus, but keeper rates were dramatically lower, even for top end pros. When I shot sports in the '80's I was happy with 3 critically sharp images per 36 roll, an 8% critical keeper rate and I was average at the time and in the best of health and eyesight, nowadays keeper rates are in the order of 90-95% critically sharp.
AF is huge, that is why after a comparatively short introductory period they achieved universal acceptance, way quicker than practically any other major feature of SLR's. Universal acceptance of TTL metering and Auto exposure modes both took much longer.
"Will still photography be necessary in the age of 4K video?
"Wide open" vs "wide open" is pointless.
16-35mm f/2.8 L II on a 5D3 Vs 10-22mm on a 70D, which theoretically would give the better image?
What concerns me a little lateley is the relative inactivity on Yongnuo's side.
All that glistens.....
The flash connection is relatively new, but it has happened on three shoots now, I shoot some real estate and have 600-EX-RT's inside the property and control them from outside, with the ST-E3-RT this is effortless and 100% reliable, however with the YN-E3-RT it is not so and when they do stop talking I have to take the YN off the camera and walk it back into the property, often the same room, to get it to reconnect.
I believe many will never have an issue with the YN, I probably work them harder and longer than most would and the reliability seems to drop off as shoot time goes up. For pre 2012 cameras and non critical/short term use they are still a way better buy than the ST-E3-RT, for longer shoots or with post 2012 cameras just get the Canon.
I now have to take it off camera to make any adjustments to remote or menu settings, once the thing drops a flash you have to go very close to reconnect
We are not debating functionality but rather sharpness
There is very little to gain by sticking an L lens on a crop body.
What FF gives you is the ability to choose a thinner DoF if you want it, use a faster shutter speed if DoF isn't a limitation, have lower noise and greater post-processing flexibility, etc. The benefits of FF are most evident when pushing the envelope, so to speak.
