I certainly hope it has a touch screen and wi-fi. It's long past time for these features to be integrated into upper end cameras.

People are going to argue black and blue that I'm wrong for doing this, but I'm not going to buy a new DSLR from Canon (or Sony!) - regardless of how good the sample images are - until it's been tested and evaluated by DxO.
Because scores aside, their methodology is fixed and the same for every model.
Thus I can look at their sensor measurements for noise and DR and get an independent view on where Canon are at with their new cameras relative to other cameras.
And to not put a finer point on it, I don't trust Canon to deliver significant IQ improvement just because it is a new FF sensor on a new camera.
I am getting a little tired of the mantra, that the camera doesn't matter. Of course it does.
A camera is a tool, and all tools aren't equal. Some tools are better suited for certain tasks and circumstances. It also very good to know your tools and how to get the most of it, where camera/sensor tests can sometimes be helpful.
I agree. A tool certainly can't make an artistic decision for you, but it can certainly make your life easier and help to produce a better final result. If they didn't we'd all be either using our phones or cameras made out of lego.
*Sigh I guess it's all about perception nowadays eh. The internet is such a cruel world as they say.
I don't intend to hurt their business, I'm just here to share a story that's common in the community and which I hope to prevent such instances like this.
Anyways lets focus on the video!
There seems to be an expectation or underlying current of knowing that Canon will deliver a DSLR that has a "more" of something this year however it remains to be seen if that "more" translates into a good enough IQ increase that it will distract people from Sony.
Some people posting on Internet forums do certainly seem 'distracted by Sony'. However, that sort of thing doesn't seem to be having a big impact on people actually buying cameras. Which group do you think matters to Canon?
It very much remains to be seen whether Canon and Nikon can leverage their installed base and very extensive DSLR lens lineups in the transition to MILCs.
Given the global market penetrance of MILCs (or rather, the lack thereof), the first question is not whether they can, but whether they should…
Lots of people like to talk and write the about death of dSLRs due to the rise of MILCs. However, that rise is certainly not taking place with a slope consistent killing dSLRs, and it's important to keep in mind the same people saying these things now predicted that demise of the dSLR was to have occurred by ~5 years ago.
The weaker Yen is probably the prices of new 7Dii/16-35/100-400 lenses have been lower than expected. I hope the next wave of new FF cameras follow this trend.
It's actually pretty difficult imagining something brand new that will forever change photography
Not so: http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php?topic=23788.0
2015 will likely bring mirrorless cameras with APS-C and FF sensors that finally surpass DSLRs in every single aspect of imaginge capture and imaging. It will be a revolutionary move in the history of photography.
Or would you still complain about the depth of the body being too fat ? ( I can sympathise with anyone finding some bodies to hold as too fat but not necessarily cameras).
I can understand those that like the shooting experience without a mirror, it's a very subtle 'snick' compared with the dslr's 'thwack', but it's not something that I can really get excited about. As for mirror vibration damaging the IQ ( which only happens at very specific shutter speeds anyway - about 1/15 th ) - just use live view or mirror lock up on a dslr.
I can't help feeling those those who really resent mirrors so much don't like what they see when they look in one .....
revolutionary is a very rare event.... last time it occurred in digital photography was the invention of the digital sensor....
Absolutely!! The techno junkies can't stand it - or perhaps understand it - but even the cheapest and simplest DSLRS already produce excellent results. It's all evolutionary from here....
