I'm assuming it is gonna be metal with a plastic top (like the 6D). There will definitely be plastic bits due to the wifi.

The two things that the 6D is lacking that I think are important to a amateur/prosumer photographer are a second memory card slot and a pop-up flash. I just purchased a Nikon D600 for my father, rather than the 6D, because the D600 had the second memory card slot and a pop-up flash.
I could care less about WiFi and GPS....and video for that matter! I think Canon should have designed this camera geared toward purely still photography, and left out the video, which would have kept down the retail price and Canon might have been able to price it around $1,500. The Nikon D700 doesn't have video, and look at how many still love that camera!
Nikon and Canon have two different visions of how an AF system should be and function, and with what parameters. There are differences in response, starting up , stopping down and loops to hit the target in different scenes. Canon have chosen for example up to f-5, 6, Nikon to F-8.
It would take a very long time to test out which of the systems is generally best, it is probably not doable.
There are reports that the Canon's AF seems faster but the number of keepers at moving subject is greater in Nikon, after some time when colleagues have tried out made we usually emerge which camera produces the best keepers in similar situations, as it emerged with 1dmk3 and d3
really important things are always missing for example flash sync speed WE WANT CANON TO GIVE US 1/500 to say the least, 1/160 - 1/200 is a joke, this "new" camera doesnt worth the stretch.
■Type Eye-level pentaprism"
If true, a pretty radical departure from 'Rebel' traditions...
"■Canon EF lenses, the lens (EF-S Lens)
(35mm equivalent focal length marked on the lens focal length of approximately 1.6-fold)."
What on earth does this mean . Wouldn't this be extremely confusing, as all other EF and EF-S lenses have their actual focal length marked upon the barrel?
