The true specs will decide but looking at those specs it's very meh.

Yes because you'll need display port for 10 bit and they restrict 10 bit to the pro cards. However there is a hack to trick some Nvidia cards into believing they are quadro cards and getting them to work in 10 bit mode. It's not for the faint of heart.
I may be not reading this right. My GeForce GTX 770 does have display port. But I thought it cannot do 10 bit color from what I've read. Is your post saying it can because it has display port?
Dude, I tried the metabones + a7 combo and it suxs. Heck the a7 AF suxs period compared to a measly old 5Dc's center AF point. :/ MILC hasn't convinced me of its AF yet and the only hope I've seen is DPAF. (Not terribly quick either.)Sony has shown what is possible with new sensor technology whilst Canon hasn't updated theirs in many years and so on. That then leads to people defending Canon doing little or nothing in various areas whilst it leaves others exasperated.
Canon as shown what is possible with lens and optical technology, while Sony has done little or nothing in that area. Some people seem to think bare silicon sensors take pictures…
With the metabones adapters, I can put almost any lens on the Sony A7 series. Why should I limit myself to Sony's lenses?
But... but... but... system! system! system!
Yup, by going down the Sony mirrorless path the options for what a working "system" can be are much larger than with Canon.
If by "working system" you mean massively compromised with severe loss of functionality then yes, you might have a point.
Which pieces of functionality will be compromised?
You obviously haven't practiced what you preach, go use a Sony with a Metabones and try out the AF.
Is there any other loss in functionality aside from AF?
Read tcmatthews reply above. You really do have an incredible habit of talking from a position of no experience of the suggestions you make.
I'm not having a conversation with tcmatthews, I'm having a conversation with you.
I want you to tell me if there is any other loss in functionality aside from AF.
That's a nice photo. Great timing. 10fps FTW.probably.... but while all this was going on I found out that you can walk around for 5 hours at -13C with a 7D2 and that it will still work. I hope that any future Canon upgrades will also handle the cold as well...If you want auto focus with Canon lens on a Sony camera you will be disappointed.
Blasphemy! You profane the Holy Exmor, which by virtue of its omnipotence can do everything, and by definition everything includes autofocus. Sayeth Exmor, "Thou shalt have no other cameras before me."
Hey Don, do I need a sarcasm tag here, too?
and may I say that 10FPS and a kick-ass AF system are essential when trying to get pictures of small birds in flight.
Yup. 5d1----> 5D3(held out on buying a 5d2 for along time) and it's very likely it will be 5d3---> 5D5 if it doesn't have those things.It'd have to be a really awesome camera to make me spend more monies from my mk3.
Hey, weren't you the one saying the same thing about the 5d1 until just before you upgraded :-p ?
Well spotted !A FF rebel would be quite a response to the New D5500 if its the same price. It lacks the dedicated LV toggle and I would put my money that its a rebel.
Top lcd, no AF On button, cheap incorporation of the rear command wheel, even cheaper than the latest xxD / 6D lines. No I don't think this is a replacement for the 70D. I don't think Canon will dumb the xxD down so low.
I think this could be the new budget FF camera to go with that ( otherwise slightly bizarre) 24-105 STM.
