So, what will a 7DII be like? Are these hints of a probable change towards FF or aps-h?

Nikon is rumored to be bring out a low end FF Body.  It will not be pro level, but have the features of their beginner models. 
The Canon equivalent would be a FF Rebel, but even that would be better than the nikon model which, without a AF motor drive, can only use the newer Nikon lenses.  So if you have good but older Nikon Glass, it would be no autofocus. This really runs up the price to the buyer.

I would like to see this materializing. Would take us  back to film days, when every SLR was FF.  The manufacturers may use lesser material in > US $ 2200 bodies and so on, as long as they get back to "the real thing", maybe time and construction cost are due for a move like that.

"Red has always worked fine and it's what we're used to. I can't think of a situation where the red AF point is not immediately  apparent. On 1-Series bodies I choose to max the brightness of the AF display points. Maybe you'd like the simple option of dimming the points.

You know I'm wondering if the prolonged delay of the 1DX might have something to do with the black AF point issue. Sports shooters would be beta testing the 1DX and they would be blistering in their criticism of the black AF point issue.

Alternatively it may be a deliberate design decision to partially cripple the 5D3 to make the 1DX more attractive to action shooters.

Waiting to upgrade from a 30D I would feel kinda strange if they'd "crippled" AF points for such a purpose on the 5D3. If they can do it in my 30D, why here ? Cheers, Pedro

well, these are awful news indeed, for all of you who have been hopin to get their gear on time...
I am saving up for the 17-40 to purchase it along with the 5D3 around this time next year. Hope Canon will lower its pricetag a bit in the meantime. But having read some short test notes on DPR, ISO should be at least one or even two stops better than the 5D3s...Well, that doesn't make things easier, but it rocks quite a bit once the new cam hits the shelves...

Have to wait for quite a while, but I will shoot the night away outside trying out all the crazy ISOs my current 30D cannot do...25600, 51200, 102400  8)

@Bosman: So will I do. Still saving up for the WA lens (17-40) but I will flog the H as well. Looking forward to do candlelightish lowlight photography at 51k for conversions into B/W. Maybe I even dare to do this at 102 k  8)

Thank you very much for sharing. Would you mind if I'd ask you for some 51200 and 102400 shots, just to see how a serious test at these levels looks like? I do not work with LR. All done in DPP. But compared to DPP, how much NR did you apply?

What do you think, will 51k give us a usable low light street photography/portrait in B/W?

Cheers, Pedro

30 D. Still some time, saving up for a new FF WA lens: 17-40 4.0 to buy both at the same time ;-)

I just saw them over @DPR. Wow. Have a 50 1.4 myself. Combined with a 85 1.8 and 28 2.8 I am looking forward to do this type of photography. Waiting with my purchase while saving up for a 17-40 4.0. But with these photographs there is a lot of joy in the waiting! Was worth all the wait, I even guess we gonna get some very usable 51k b/w photographs under these same conditions... 8) Cheers, Pedro

Well with my current 30D in mind, this looks really nice. If the raws are 1 stop better compared to the 5Dii, how many stops is that to my current body...about 4 I guess. My H1 ISO 3200 don't even look like 25k without pp! This is the dream cam for me, for a long time ;-) About one year more and yes...here I come! 8)

Great! I am another 30D shooter about to enter into the 5Diii universe...Looking forward to do so saving up a bit longer to get the WA lens as well. And yes...the computer side is another aspect to be considered...But anyway, there is joy in saving up and waiting while many of you out there will be sharing their experience with this breathtaking new device! Tell your friend I said hello...wishing him lot of fun while walking thru the learning curve. I am sure he won't repent his decision as I won't mine.

maybe the demo body was a lemon... 8)

looks great @25k. Looking forward to see RAWs.

These samples were taken with a pre-production unit, right? I guess Canon are aware of it and might have it fixed once the first batch hits the street, or yes a firmware update will do.
