I'd like to remind the people talking about the FS7, that the FS700 was a Canon killer on paper too. Then we started seeing what the actual images looked like coming off the FS700, and it wasn't comparable.

2. 4k downscaled to 1080P looks way, way, way better than what any Canon DSLR gives you out of cam and better for detail even than 5D3 + ML RAW.
As a C100 owner, I'm pretty happy with Canon's update!
Fwiw I still think the CX00 series offers the best looking image on the market below the Alexa, though Canon Log sucks (wide DR is great).
For the best specs, get anything else and spend a lifetime grading it to look as good as Canon's AVCHD.
Watching a documentary in a true large format IMAX theater is impressive visually. For most everything else, whether it's on the big screen or on my SDTV makes essentially no difference to me.
I find the difference between ML raw video and native 5D3 video to be entirely immaterial.
No difference seen in detail and texture between waxy 5D3 native video and richly textured ML RAW and no difference in blown highlights and crushed black detail between the two?
No difference between 4k and 1080i and 480i even for nature?
I guess people sure see things differently. To me the difference is almost unimagineably great.
One day some company will make a camera that produces colours the way the 5D does in raw. God the colours just sing. The gradiations, the highlight rolloff, the shadow information, the feel and aesthetic of the image. No other camera produces that image it's uncanny.
So i'm guessing the NDA expiration was nothing?
Just because an NDA expires does not mean that the signers are obligated to post information.
Does the playback on 5d3 (when recording RAW) using ML strobe?
And in what way is selling the IP to said someone makes more sense and gives better protection than hiring said person to protect the company's IP w/o selling it?
I hate patent trolls. I don't know how anyone can be okay with making money by charging someone for their own work. It would be similar to a photographer that sold a photo to a bunch of clients. Then someone else copywrites the photo and makes the the original photographer pay royalties.
Hopefully the LOT Network will cut down on patent trolls. They have started out with some big names.
Now we just need a network for Photography Forum Trolls.
