I seem too dumb for Nikon ergonomics, they just give me a headache. I feel a lot more comfortable with Canon's menu and button layouts. And I like their lenses better.

I might be naive, but would it not be better to wait for the codecs to appear in EOS Utility and Adobe programs before making judgments based on work-arounds?
...the actual quality of the sensor or the IQ of its RAW output... is the only thing that matters (for me anyway).
Then it's time to preorder.
If you want both IQ and features, you need to fork out another $1000-$1500 to move up to the 5DIII.
With auto-ISO enabled, the Manual camera setting isn't really fully manual. It would be great if the camera allowed exposure compensation for the "not quite manual" setting where shutter and f/stop were fixed but ISO was automatic.
You can always put camera gear in to a serious hiking backpack but it's hard (if not impossible) to take an expensive photography backpack and use it for serious hiking.
I could not agree more. I've been using a F-stop Loka for a few years now, and while it's a great backpack and probably one of the finest camera backpacks available, I feel a lot more comfortable with my Arcteryx Astral 65 even if I put twice as much weight in it. There is a world of difference, at least to my me and my back. I would say that camera backpack manufacturers have a very long way to go, when it comes to ergonomics. I'm thinking of adding a Lowepro Toploader AW 50 to my kit, now that I have sold the Loka, to be chucked in with the rest of my hiking kit. It should hold a L-plated 6D with a wide angle zoom nice and snugly.
