Finally, a 1-series body I wouldn't mind taking on long hikes!

The sigma 50 1.4 is...really big for a 50mm prime, has AF quality control issues and won't work with auto CA corrections.
@tiger82 - what's up with that hood on the 70-200/2.8? Hope you know it's too short to be of any real optical benefit...
The first and the last photos are AWESOME ... especially the first one, very unique fireworks.
The Fab-4, excellent!
I think the wife was a typo & he meant wifi. If so, Id be interested once the price settles down (although dual digic 6s would be more interesting). If its not a typo and somehow a new wife is included w/ da kit-I'll pass. Already have a couple of those & I'm not really interested in a replacement/upgrade right now.
+1 on the F-stop Loka.
Lot's of versatility because of the different sized ICU's (inserts) that can be placed within. And, FWIW, I've carried this in some pretty harsh terrain / environments and can attest to the comfort with a load.
I also have a Kata 3-n-1. It works well but cannot carry as much nor is it as comfortable if you are carrying all day.
x2 on the Loka, that's what I use. Awesome bag.
Why aren't more backpacks designed like the Lowepro Flipside series? Walking around in a Flipside backpack in an urban setting provides a little more peace of mind against theft in crowds with the zipper on the "inside" to protect your equipment. Also on rural trails when you put the bag on the dirt ground to open it, you get the outside dirty instead of the side you put back on your back!
Is there any other brand that has a bag like this besides Lowepro?
This is more of general topic question, but if you the 70D does get wifi/gps, what does that actually mean? What are the features of wifi on a dslr? Can you post right to facebook/instagram? Do your photo's auto import/sync to your computer? Is it really anything that great outside the social media benefits?
I'm trying to think of the advantages of having wifi and I can't think of anything more that what i mentioned above. It doesn't seem like a necessary feature on a DSLR, at least for people who take photography to a step above "point and shoot." I would imagine for a point and shoot camera WIFI is probably mandatory these days because rarely are people doing post production. I'm sure these points have been beaten to death but just looking for some advantages of wifi on my dslr...
What about sending your pictures straight to the computer, which will show them "instant" on a big (TV) screen. People like to see themself on big screens during an event .
