It's old school. Consider getting prints in frames from Mpix... (or think about a 4:5 ratio when composing - there are framing guide focus screens for the 1-series, for example.)

So is it only in AI-Servo mode it goes black? Does the Single Shot still glow red?
When you're tracking someone or something during Al Servo, the camera is constantly focusing. How do you re-compose your shot while keeping the center focus on the subject and not jumping to an object in front or behind them? I would assume that with the new 5D3, with the crosshairs being more sensitive, using all cross types or even varients of combinations, it would be easier to accidently jump forward or backwards depending on the contrasted objects...or am I to assume that everything shot is taken in a horizontal orientation and cropped vertically, when needed. ( I can't wait to get my paws on a 5D3 to test it out or 1Dx)
I don't know why anyone would pre-order a professional camera in the first place without knowing exactly what they were getting - and more importantly, WHY they were getting it.
I wonder why this issue gained so much momentum with the 5D3 and 1DX when the 7D behaves the same and it's on the market for some time.
Well, whatever the reason, I'm glad that they are finally doing something to improve it.
Let us know how you like it
Limited use so far, but love it, love it, love it. Build is great, customization is extensive, responsiveness is amazing. Shot some ISO tests, with no NR it's definitely a full stop better than the 5DII, probably a little more than that. Exposures are very, very consistent, AF performance is great.
Heading out to shoot a concert tonight, looking forward to it!
You mean better than the 5D III
You say it even 'remembers' my settings in Av / Tv / M separately?
Just checked it - you're right. (Sorry, I'm a Canon novice from Frankfurt/Germany)
This means I have three more custom modes which are always active. Even worse!
For example, how do you tell the camera NOT to clean the sensor everytime it is switched on/off? If I happen to program this in Av mode, is it gone when I use Tv?
There must be some higher override to set certain things. Would be a pain if I had to set it six times
Is it the same in your 1Dx ?
