At this point, I feel Nikon D800 is a much better choice. Canon needs to go back to the drawing board.
I may buy a D800 with couple of lenses at this time.
Excellently trolled sir/madam. Headgears off to you.
I just downloaded the high ISO images from DPR. All the images were taken at 3EV, so they are real low light images.
On my screen, I could see the noise at ISO 102400, but the 8.5 X 11 prints were sharp and clean. I then printed 3 more, 51200, 25,600, 12800, and they also suprised me. I could show any of these prints to someone, and they would not suspect that they were high ISO unless they had a magnifier.
These were jpegs with no additional processing by me, I would expect RAW to be better.
I certainly plan to use the ISO 25600 freely whenever I absolutely need it in low light for a fast shutter speed.
Canon has done some real work on the blacks, I can move the black slider in LR4 all the way to the right without seeing any banding.
Like it. With the new dual card slot, I'm hoping Canon has worked out a way for me to shoot pictures and record them onto a CF card, while playing my iTunes music from the SD card through the headphones. Now all it needs is a 4G antenna, and it'll be the ultimate camera phone.

$1000 for 10 cm shorter and a few grams lighter, with a less effective hood design, the possibility of lens creep (they felt the need for a zoom lock), and the added expense of 82mm filters?
Optically, this lens had better be *damn* good...
In fact...what if they just use the same sensor as in the 5DII in a new 5DIII? No one seems to be complaining about the performance of that sensor - so why not leave it alone and improve other features? We've heard rumors of a 22 MP sensor, right? Guess what - the 5DII already has a 22 MP sensor, with 21.1 MP effective pixels. Check the specs...
"Having in mind the above, this means that Canon 1D X cannot focus on the longer (telephoto) lenses which have an aperture smaller than f/5.6, say 6.3?
This includes (at least) the following lenses:
Erm no it doesn't because the Sigma lenses at f/6.3 report to the camera that they are f/5.6 or they wouldn't work with any other camera than the 1D series. I suspect that the Tamrons use the same system.
Even if they did report f/6.3, why would this be Canon's problem?
None of the above lenses are theirs, so why would Canon care?
Maybe Sigma/Tamrom will need to pull their finger out and produce newer, better lenses that don't drop down to f/6.3 at the long end?
Still, I don't see noise levels getting down to where Nikon is anytime soon.
