Given that Canon built in viewfinder shutters in the past, why such a crappy solution in such expensive a camera (I can understand for lesser models) is there a practical reason why a built in blind is no longer possible? Just wondering

Woa what just happened!
Hello again from Archangel72
Here is another nice review of Canon EOS 1Dx from world-renowned wildlife photographer (and Nikon shooter) Andy Rouse.
Amazing pictures !!!
Can't wait for my piece of 1Dx beauty.
Almost there, almost there ...
scabby auld 7D
If not..... This camera has a Canon EF-M mount, not a Leica M mount. It is a new mount designed specifically for a new mirror-less camera called the "EOS M".
I for one am not joking. :-)
I still would like a hi-end FF mirrorless "with everything": very compact fully weathersealed body, excellent sensor, very fast phase-detect AF on the sensor, and an electrified Leica M-mount which would be both compatible with manual focus M-Mount lenses as well as with new nanocoated AF-lenses build specifically for it. At the price of say a 5D3, rather than a Leica M9 (which I do not want for a number of reasaons, most importantly that itr is a manual-focus only mechanical rangefinder, and the only thing digital being its sensor).
Canon could give me that ... if they only wanted. But, they do not want. Unfortunately.
On the other hand: I do not want consumer-oriented viewfinderless point and shoots like this EF-M. Even if it has an APS-C sensor and not only a puny G1C 4:3 sensor. If Canon won't serve me
I wont buy their crap. As easy as that. Somebody will eventually build the camera I really want.
