R1-7D - sorry, I must have missed your post, but congrats to you as well, even if the decision may have been made for you when you touched it.
KKCFamilyman, my battery door lock is quite tight as well, much more than I expected. I'm sure it will loosen with time.
Graham, that's a possibility. It's a very serious camera and when you hold it, it has the feel of a finely crafted watch, and the thing that blows everyone away is the 12FPS shutter. It could seal the deal. Just make sure not to touch it yourself or you marriage could be in trouble if she's not impressed .
High ISO shooting and metering system are AWESOME. It feels good when you know your photos will look fine at 12000ISO indoor. Photo below taken at 20,000ISO, indoor with all window blinds closed. It might not be an ideal light condition for shooting, but still, photo came out quite good. Add little noise reduction to it, I think photo will be ok.
I agree, the new metering and high ISO capabilities are incredible. There is definitely a noticeable improvement from the 5D3, which in itself was a huge improvement from the 5D2. I am very impressed.
I didn't think I would notice the improvement in AF from the 5D3 that much, but with it locking on to color and faces and then tracking them, there definitely is a difference there as well.
Overall I'm incredibly impressed. Can't really fault anything on the camera.
