I was hoping there would be a new switch to turn off effective aperture reporting .

Where oh where are the EF 50mm f/1.4 II, the EF 24-70mm f/2.8L IS, and the EF 35mm f/1.4L II??
And a 14-24mm f/2.8L would be nice too Canon. Why are you letting Nikon spank you in this department?
Couldn't care less about any of the new announcements except for the new fish.
The lack of buttons maybe because it has a touch screen because Canon applied for a patent that covers a touch screen facility on DSLR cameras (reported in the January - March 2010 EOS Magazine). The touch screen apparently is not just for navigation, but will also allow the user to adjust settings - a vertical swipe to change the aperture values and horizontal swipe to adjust shutter speed. Other functions, including metering mode, drive, ISO value, autofocus, white balance and exposure compensation will also be adjustable via gesture controls.
Also reported in the April - June 2010 EOS Magazine Canon applied for a patent for a revolutionary viewfinder system which displays both an optical and an electronic viewfinder. It means that photographers can look through the optical viewfinder and see two screens; one which displays through the lens and another which is a small electronic viewfinder that is used for image review. It would mean that photographers would no longer have to take the camera away from their eye to view the image on the LCD monitor. This would be useful for sports and news photographers who need to stay ready for the next shot.
