Considering how the 5DmkIII is more of an evolutionary step does anybody think the next 7D will be more of the same or will it be the next "giant leap" for APS-C kind?

I too would like to see Karma/Smite reinstated, as I believe it helped identify trolls. I used it as a reference often, I figure if the community consensus had a persons Karma/Smite reasonably balanced (or Karma rich) then that person was worth having a dialog with. On the other hand if the person had 50 smites and only 4 Karma, then I know that person is likely a troll and I can save my breath trying to engage in a reasonable dialog with them.
As it stands now, there seems to be a number of trolls still operating, and now I have no way to identify them at a glance, so we all risk getting sucked into the pot they are stirring... out of ignorance or amusement.
Canon extenders are compatible only with L-series primes of 135mm and longer, and L-series zooms starting at 70mm, with the exception of the 70-300 L. There are 3rd party extenders (e.g. Kenko) that do not have the protruding element and are compatible with most Canon lenses.
I think this is being reasonable:
- New sensor with improved low and high ISO (clean ISO 1600)!!
- Dual Digic 5
- Same build, maybe a little better weather seal
- Improved DR
- Maybe a few more AF points (all cross)
- Same screen (resolution & aspect ratio) as 5D3
- No flip-out screen
- Multiple micro adjust settings per lens (does 5D3 have this?)
- Price inside 2K US dollars
Would be nice but don't see it happening:
- Radio controlled flash
- User replaceable focusing screens
You can also take a gamble, if it's only one lens element affected, then maybe you can strip it for parts and make a bit of cash, but not if you want to actually use it.
