I recommend Nissin flashes. They're better built than Yongnuo's comparable to Canon.

I think if you think it is going to have better high iso than the 5dmk3 putting it close to the 1dx you are kidding yourself
I always learn something from Ken's reviews...I would be lying if I said that I did not...but he is still a Canon Kiss-Ass, and a hoser. . (Ken uses no tact...so I won't use any either).
...oh...and I still prefer my 5DIII. Duh.
"even though the IQ is great, the rest of the camera falls apart and destroys any appeal as an option, even if the current offering at b+h is only $100 more than the 5D2 kit."
Had previously heard the rumors of an M2 so it's not so much of a shock. I can accept that my EOS-M doesn't have a built in flash or EVF since it is what I bought.
What I have a problem accepting is the crap AF speed and the lack of a firmware update to address it. If it turns out to be a hardware problem and something that requires a new model to fix I'll be very very very annoyed with Canon. (Unless they do me some kind of unheard of deal to upgrade)
WUT WUT. I just got my M though. T_T If it's like a M-pro, I'm going to cry.
Off topic, too: For peace of mind, it's best not to think of any other dslrs or competing brands out there.
Isn't someone going to say EF-S 18-55? It's supposed to be the number one Canon lens for numbers produced.... someone has to like it.... anybody??
its not a very good lens, if they upgrade the optics to be the same as the 18-55 EF-M it will be a big improvement for this kit lens
Go for a 5dc or 5d2 if your money isnt enough and buy the 24-70. Those 2 ff are still a lot better than t4i and you'll be exposed to the DOF of an FF. This way, you won't think of upgrades until at least your camera goes down. As for me, if i have that kind of money, it will be a 6D + 50mm f1.4 + 85mm F1.8. Ive got already a 28mm to cover the wide end. Agreed, primes are more inconvenient to use but I prefer the IQ of a prime. But if youre earning money through photography, a 24-70 is a must.
I'm afraid I'll have to disagree with you. Gone are the days that prime lenses are better than zooms. As I said before, I already purchased the 6D + 85mm f1.8 and promptly returned them because the 85mm had unimpressive sharpness, color, contrast, and aberration correction compared to the 70-200mm f2.8 IS USM II that I sold. I was willing to give up the focal range versatility, but the 85mm was simply inferior in all other aspects as well. There's nothing really wrong with the 85mm f1.8, but its 20-year-old design just doesn't stand up to a top of the line zoom that costs $1800 more, which was what I was used to using before.
Also, I'm not quite sure a 5Dc is better than a T4i. The sensor is, for sure. But what about the ergonomics and controls? Autofocus? Video? (I do shoot video occasionally, mostly at home for fun.) Actually, it would appear that the T4i is better than the 5Dc in every way EXCEPT sensor. Not a very convincing argument for the full frame crowd.
