The 1DC doesn't have ND filters or XLR inputs either. And, still, it's 4 times the price of the BMC-4K, even though it records 8-bit H.264 instead of 10-bit 4:2:2 ProRes or 12-bit RAW.

so canon user will get a 8000 euro high MP camera while nikon user get a high MP camera for 2200 euro.
Three cinema bodies that seem so similar.
Canon is really stupid they should lunch the 7D mk2 before Nikon lunches the D400.
Quite the opposite: It's smart to have the competition show their cards first, then design a Canon version that is produced as cheap as possible, sold as expensive as possible while keeping some marketing joker (like the af sensitivity of the 6d).
Canon market research most probably has shown that old school dslr users are very slow to change brand, and because they're late in the tech race Canon won't be able to stop early adopters anyway ("I want high mp and dr now").
So after a Nikon announcement they have 2-3 month time to cook up something for themselves, which probably will be the 70d = 60d + wifi + gps + touchscreen + afma + fw gimmicks for a start....
