This promises to be a winner for Canon, but very much at the expense of hugely reduced sales for the 50 f/1.2L.

Thank you both for your feedback. Just to refine a bit, all this is not about opening a business at all but just getting a foot into lighting (which is new for me) to take better pictures of my 2 kids. I wanted to start with a 430 Ex because it is quite cheap and I know that if I move further into lighting, it will always be useful to have a portable flash for rim or as a background light.
Yongnuo YN-622C transceivers: $90 per pair, complete functionality, perfect operation. Why pay more?
I confirmed they do exactly whatever PW's Flex/Min can. ^_^
if you go to mid-page-ish, there's a section on it. it's not entirely clear, they say it can shoot 1.1 fps RAW+JPG until the card is full, but the shooting speed depends on zoom length and "other settings", which is pretty vague. in high speed mode, they say for every 10 shots it takes 5 seconds for the buffer to clear.
I currently use and am happy with LR4. I like the keyword ability to sort, and the image manipulation abilities seem just fine. Work flow is efficient.
I had a long discussion with the Canon representative who did not suffer from humility from either his own abilities or the Canon line of cameras and software.
He opined that DPP software was superior to all other processing software because it communicated directly with the digital files from Canon cameras in a proprietary. His argument was that importing through DPP (especially in raw) frequently obviated need for pp, and that lens tuning/correction could not be matched by third party software.
Yesterday I was told, the 7d MK2, I am interested in, will be @ about 2700€ (Canon product manager). This would be about 3500$.
Could this be true?? That is more than the 5D3 costs!!!!
Expect: fast shooting, fast AF. For all that need to shot fast things. No word about IQ.
EDIT: Need to correct: My wife told me, that the CM said that there will be an standard zoom added as an kit. Sorry, but I did not ask which one, because I was a little bit upset about the price and did not notice that he told that this would be a kit.
So i´m in the market for a full frame camera right now. I only have FF lenses for EF mount, so switching would at least mean the loss of a lens or two (money reasons).
Right now canon is far behind others. Or lets just say it: Nikon.
The d800 is 2300€ the 5d3 is 2900€ and the Nikon just is the superior camera. If you downsize the image even high iso is awesome, af is good etc. It´s just a really good body and much more in the price range of a 6d.
I want to stick with canon but if they are going to make their first competitive body in like 5 years i really have to consider switching....
