F4.0 would not surprize me. Canon reserves the biggest apertures for the prime lenses. ie. 14mm prime. If they did the zoom at 2.8 the 14mm prime would be less desireable.

Is it only me? Or am I the only one prefering the SOOC pictures in the review compared to the post processed ones?
I suppose he is seeking his 15seconds of fame and people seem to be lapping it up.
Matt Granger has proved to be nothing more than a tool.
$1,799 in both the US and Canada. With the CDN dollar so much lower.... all you US guys, buy from Camera Canada!
Notice that the only site mentioning that $1799 is an estimated price and that actual price may change... Is camera Canada.
Dont you still need a computer to initiate the transfer? If so why not a wired drive connected to the computer?
I had a quick look at the manual and this device in particular can be set to automatically copy or move everything off of an SD card once it is inserted; the device can be managed by a PC or Mac or wireless device via wifi. It appears to be useable as a simple USB external drive, or the USB port can be disabled. I don't know if a CF card adapter may be connected, but if I can get my hands on one of these drives I'll try it.
What is saves for me is the requirement to hump a laptop all the way across Europe. I plan to take my phone and probably my tablet, and with this device I can copy everything from the card and then mail the card home for the sake of diverse storage. It also charges via USB, so ideally I'll only have one wart for those three devices and one Canon charger.
