Seriously.... why doesn't Canon Hire Alex and his team.... Way back when I was done with a 350d and kit lens, I was not system dependant... I could have gone Nikon or Canon... ML brought me to the Canon camp. How many 5D2 users have stayed with Canon due to ML... it's amazing how ML has helped Canon.
I suspect there may be more to this than immediately meets the eye, however, there is interesting possibility here for Canon to get a lot more mileage out of existing hardware.
There are however marketing issues - if this really works, we would probably see the 5DIII get more DR than a 1Dx. As for 7D users - if it works, it will be a good motivator for me not to look at a 7DII (not that I would, as having a 5DII and 5DIII mostly negates the need). For those with 7Ds, this may be the best investment protection yet. - Again, the proof of the pudding .....
