46mp @5fps wow wonder what the buffer will be if true, and shudder to think what the price will be bet it will make the 5D3 entry price look like a real bargin! good to see though

Wonder how many Apple patents this buyout will get round?
As always with this sort of things I hope the codes jobs are secure, I'm sure the directors will be fine
Usually the other way around I think... Founders, Directors, upper management do well financially from the sale... the technical teams get jobs paid by Google... in this case some may move into other areas of Google, some stay with the Nik team, some some stay or move into the Snapspeed team (since Google will want to expand it), some may leave.
While I'm not in the market for this camera after buying the 5d3, I think you guys are missing the point... everyone griped they wanted an entry level full frame, they got it... To me, I think this is squarely put right there for those advanced rebel shooters and xxd users who have the option... Do you want to go full frame and get better IQ but NOT want to take out a second mortgage to get the 5d3 or 1dx, OR do you want a 7d (or 7d m2 whenever that comes to fruition). It's for that person that wants better images without all the fancy bells in whistles... That guy who may want GPS so they can utilize it for social media and the like... It's no 5d3 but it isn't trying to be either... While it doesn't get me excited per se, perhaps it would have many moons ago when I was a xxd shooter... It is what it is, an entry level full frame. Nothing less, nothing more.
1. If it doesn’t have AFMA
good call. I instantly wrote off the 60D due to its lack of AFMA. Especially with 3rd party lenses & AF-confirm adapters, the lack of it is a deal-breaker.
Put it this way all people outside Britain.
5DMKIII with the 24-105mm is £3,500 or $5,600 dollars in UK.
In America the same kit is $4,100 or £2800! For you yanks to understand that is $1500 or £700 more for the same camera.
