An interesting implication to the data us that canons low end market share is not as high, maybe equal or that Nikon may lead in this segment

Just curious, why did you buy from B&H when there are all these people selling it for $400-$600 cheaper than them?
Probably because B&H is much more trustworthy than the eBay retailers.
I'm not so certain that Canon will introduce new sensor tech just for an 1.6 ...
You are basically right.
Still, the most practical thing to do when introducing new tech is to put it in smaller sensors first .
In fact, that's what Canon is doing already with the S100/S110/G15 sensor - which is made on new tech.
Eventually, this new tech will make it into DSLR sensors as well.
At that time, it would make the most sense if it's used for 1.6x sensors first.
Of course this is not guaranteed and Canon might have other plans.
To me, though, a 7DII with the same sensor as the 7D is kind of pointless.
I I think you are right about Canon" planning its response" but probably only in the sense that there must be a chalkboard somewhere with notes about 5D4.
has canon said anything about this yet?
My serial is xxxxx4xx5xxx and has the IR focus issue. I've had it for 2 weeks from an authorized seller.
In -2EV of light my Rebel 550D was faster than the 5D3 (1/2s vs 1s). In 1EV of light the 5D3 is faster. The test was simple. Fully depress the shutter simultaneously on both bodies to see which shot first (images were in focus).
[The setups were different (5d3+600ex+70-200ii vs 550D+580ex2+24-70v1) but I found in previous tests that combinations of lens and flash did not make a difference to the outcome. Subject was a uniform tiled wall at 8 feet.]
Yes, I was refering to the tripod ring that comes with the 70-200L.
I do use a Bogen (now Manfrotto) quick release tilt head on my mono-pod so I can tilt down and up. The tilt and the quick release work well for me. This is a personal preference thing. Some prefer mounting the lens tripod ring directly to the mono-pod without a head. You'll have to figure out which works best for you. (But, be wary of the ball mount. It never stays put when shooting action.)
Guys remember designing a work around isn't the way forward, There shouldn't be a need to have to work around a problem that basically should not exist in the first place, Im worried that the problem may start to become overshadowed by "what we all can do instead" I really am hoping for this tread to get heard, its a real problem and I do not believe for a moment it only happens in certain cameras (ie other 5D3's don't have this problem) its a problem with the 5D3 itself and needs to be addressed,
I would like to say thanks to everyone that has of course offered help in ideas making it easier while we wait for answers, but let us not forget the true problem exists and needs to be fixed,
Saying things like "I shoot alot of low light" doesnt mean anything really...
...I for one hardly take my flash with me - the camera takes great pictures in low light with some help from lightroom, but getting it to focus sometimes is a problem.
