Doesn't Nikon use the same transmissive LCD thingy in their viewfinders? They have no issues keeping the AF points lit.

Personally since Amazon has taken over DPR their reviews have deteriorated.
If true, Canon is getting positively Niokn-esque in letting this top AF system trickle down the lines.
DxO scores have lost all credibility, so quoting them is pretty meaningless.
From one that was there - the 450D was not as good a camera as the 40D
Bit like comparing the 600D with the 7D - you just wouldn't go sports shooting with the 600D
BS dude! The 40D is a 10MP body. The 40D is 10x the better camera for image quality (IQ) than the 450D. I have used both.
Nikon have (fast) phase detect autofocus working with their mirrorless 1-series cameras.
Canon should be aiming to do the same!
and you are suggesting that these improvements are substantially due simply to the fact that 36 is a bigger number then 12?
Not if the increase in pixels is overcompensated by the increase in nose, then even say 24mp downsized to the current 18mp will look worse. And what's more mp good for if the dynamic range drops? If you want that, it's time to get a high-mp mobile phone... I would like a moderate increase in mp, too, say 22-24, but not no matter what.
It isn't clear if the 650d will have sensitive af points for f2.8+ like in the 7d & 60d...
Autofocus on some compact cameras is fantastic. For the tests I've seen between the V1 and the NEX7, the NEX beats it in every test except single point autofocus where the lens is already set to the correct distance. I expect the Nikon has better low light performance but autofocus isn't everything...far from it. I admit however that these tests can be somewhat subjective. From experience i can say that the NEX-7 is very fast and autofocus is quite capable.
I've had my 5D and 20D for a long time now... As of this moment, I'm still planning on keeping the 20D and 5D going.
Now’s the time Canon, lets see the worlds first full frame autofocus mirrorless camera! Consider it preordered.
