Wow so let me get this straight it will have 5fps, not even as much as the 50D and not quite enough to really be even a decent low-end compromise for action, it won't even have as many AF points as the 7D and it might just be 5D2 AF with the outer points no x-type wow big change for nearing a decade and it won't even bump up the MP so no increase in reach or detail.
So why again am I not just sticking with my 5D2 or for finally for the first time ever truly seriously eying Nikon?
Yeah it should have better video but so should any upcoming 70D or 7D2.
So what we spend another nearly $3000 to upgrade to outer x-points and 1 extra fps and better video and a touch cleaner image and this is our FF body for the next four years?
When Nikon appears ready to offer 6fps with grip, top of the line pro AF, better video, and 36MP?
The sad thing is Canon has had the tech to blow away the Nikon offerings but they care so much about not hurting themselves internally they don't care if they give away the ship in the process.
This is a rumor, not an announcement. And do you really think Canon would spend 3 years on the successor of one of their most celebrated cameras of all time for those few upgrades? Come on now, they're smarter than that.
