Well they definitely have enough time to work out the bugs and work in the features thats for sure.

If it was about video for me the Zeiss is an obvious choice, since its not its not a choice.

No flip screen = no un wanted repairs of a flip screen that sticks out.
No flip screen = better weather proofing
cheap cameras and actual video cameras are what flip screens go on. If a flip screen is important you prob should be looking at video cameras.

Also fix the issue when you remove a memory card and put it back in that it switches to the other card even when camera power is off!  I think they fixed this on the 1DX but the 5DIII was left in the dust....
^^ Agreed! Keep CF as main until you switch it. I would think the auto switch feature could wait til you try composing a shot to switch it to SD.

I'm absolutely in love with the 5D3/50L combo! I shot a couple live bands in very low light @ ISO 6400 and was pretty damn pleased with the results. Check them out here if you all would like! I have a few more but only added my favorite few :)

Shooting teenage bands that jump all over the stage in low light @ f/1.2 was a pain, but the results are awesome when you get a decent shot!
Nice shots JVilla, I guess if you are going to shoot F1.2 with action subjects you better be ready to throw 80% or more away lol. Still its worth those that turn out like what you got.

I love Kai, he is funny know. For a second there i thought his video buddy was dressed up as a priest to help him get in the church lol. The priest looked as skinny as his video guy. All in all its a tough one to add up but for those who had the original 5d which the 5dm2 shared the focus system of, most of the PJ people felt let down by having to use focus recompose all the time. I still can't believe Canon gave it this wimpy focus system...

I guess testing it out in store is the way to go. However, that won't be possible till Canon floods the makret enough to allow the camera stores to have sample bodies for customers to get hands on with the 6D.

If canon puts a 21-22 MP APS-H sensor with 8-10 fps on the new 7D2 .. i will buy one regardless of the price...

.... but i know this is near impossible.

APS-H is dead, deader than dead...get over it folks.  The hope/myth of a re-emergence of APS-H in a 7DII, 4D, 1D Mark V is hope-less.  It doesn't mean anything negative about the APS-H or the 1D Mark IV, it simply means the market has moved....and instead of APS-H, there are now "entry-level" (though I hate that phrase applied to FF) full-frame cameras now like the 6D and Nikon entries.  APS-H is six feet under.
You need to be careful about knowing the mind of Canon unless you have inside info your bold claim to know without doubt APS-H is dead debunks your credibility. How do you know the market has moved? While you may end up being right, you don't have the right to say something you don't know about as fact.

If i could afford a 1dx I'd get one without thinking too much but I can't. My 1dm3 when it needs a new shutter will get replaced with another camera. If a 7dII comes out with great specs, it may be the camera i get without waiting and the 1dm3 becomes a backup. If it has a flip screen i'll pass. I have been looking at 1dm4's but they are still too high in price. A good companion for my 5dm3 in a crop body will be ideal for using my 24LII to its potential. The 1dm3 with the 24LII isn't ideal with focus accuracy for some reason. The 5dm3 works well with it. Since the new focus systems of the 5dm3 and 1dx have improved a lot of peoples glass shooting at large apertures if the 7dII didn't do the same I wouldn't want it. I am addicted to the 5dm3 focus and don't want to go back, the most i would give it up for would be the 1dm4. I am shooting a lot more available light now so the 7dm2 must shoot clean iso 6400 iso for me to be happy. I think like others have mentioned that the next 7d will be the 1dm4 but smaller in a similar way the 6d doesn't trump the old 5dm2 but is lighter and cheaper even though its old tech. 1D cameras will always be much more camera even if specs match up.

I ended up going with the 35L and couldn't be happier.  I actually sold my Sigma 50 1.4 and the 35 lives on my camera the majority of the time.  Picked up a 85 and I have a 50mm gap in all my lenses.  35L, 85 and 135L.

Shot weddings, families, sports, landscape with this setup and haven't wished for anything else.  Other than a 100mm macro :)
Perfect selection. ^^

EOS Bodies - For Video / Re: The First Canon EOS 6D Video Footage

What surprises me is Canon has again released a brand new XD series without a headphone jack.
The 1D X does not have one and now this latest model from Canon does not have one.

But the 1D C does, as does the 5DIII.  Seems like Canon is differentiating between bodies that can shoot video (which is all of the current ones, obviously), and bodies that are intended to be used for video.

That's fine, and I can understand the logic (sort of). But if that is what they are doing then why bother sticking video in at all. Surely a headphone jack can't be that big a deal for the engineers or the camera itself, but I am not an engineer.

I am one of those guys that thinks if you are going to do something do it right, and as it is almost 2013 and as this new 6D does have video then in my eyes it should have a headphone jack. And the 1D X as the flagship should have all the bells and whistles.

Will be interesting to see what they do with the 7D ii and the new High MP cameras.
Its not a matter of if they can, but how they target the market with options on diff cameras. They could make it possible to record all your user settings on a 5DM3 but they don't they leave that for the 1D series cameras.

24 on crop bodies aps-h and aps-c, 35 on FF.
Check your images for what focal length you use most when you use a zoom and you will find the evidence there. I have the 24L II and it is an amazing lens ad it is incredible for product photography but i use it for weddings on aps-h and it is stellar. If i shot 2 5dm3's i'd prob do the 35 but I may stretch myself to shoot wide and stay with the 24 because I just get in closer and shoot which it is a more interesting perspective.
Also i recommend checking out another canon forum that displays an extensive amount of images in their image gallery.
for the 24L

Wait for a firmware update lol.
Cameras are all about video these days, shame, shame. Seriously why release a video before images, isn't it a camera?

First Ring shot with the 40mm Pancake with 12mm Tube. Its not perfect and i plan to use live view for better macro accuracy but its nice.
I did a little processing to the dress and flower shot too so maybe you like it maybe you don't but the 40 did a nice job @ F2.8.
