Ouch, that's a costly stumble :( Hope you and the camera are ok besides the obvious.

Hm, a new 24-70 would make sense as a kit lens for the 5DIII. Looking forward to both ! :)

RAW video is a nerds wet dream. 104Mb/s+ from a DSLR body ? Right.

The missing sync socket is only an issue if you want to use studio strobes. The speedlights connect to the cameras hotshoe.

5D Mark III

The same person also touched on the 5D Mark III saying it would be slightly higher megapixel than the current 21mp, and offer an AF system in line with the 7D.

Excellent. Lets hope the "slight" increase means 22.1MP (to allow 3x3 binning for videos).

EOS Bodies / Re: The 60D Needs AF Microadjustment

3)  Micro-adjusting a lens is not a quick process.  Most users report spending all day doing it.  Some users end up setting it back at zero as their pictures come out even more messed up then before.

Doesn't take me more than 60min to create a profile for a zoom. Less than it would take me to ship a lens to Canon. Also I can actually use the lens right away vs. waiting two weeks to get it back. Saves time & money, even after buying a LensAlign tool.

In conclusion, do you need microadjust?  I really dont think so.

*Shrug* Your milage obviousely varies, but having MA in my 7D & 5DII saved me a lot of time & money.

I do MA some lenses, incl. zooms. Using a tool like LensAlign makes profiling a lens quick and easy -- up to you to decide what to set for a zoom, I usually use a value that will correct the long end since the DOF on the short side will compensate.

EOS Bodies / Re: New 60D Firmware Coming?

Still, if it did contain AF micro-adjust, I wonder:

1) How many 60D owners would actually use it.
2) How many of those that did would make a mess of it!   ;)

3) How many people that didn't buy the 60D because of the missing AFMA would get it ? ...

Patents are usually filled as close to release as possible. You don't want to let the competition know what you are up to earlier than absolutely necessary..
