Her analysis is exactly what I expected of the camera, so, of course, I tend to believe it.
This is not a camera intended for photographers to use in professional level sports. That's not bad, its just what it is. Certainly, it can be used for professional sports, but lacks the features to fit into a workflow that makes use of voice recording, as in her example, where different people develop and edit the images, and need to be able to title them accurately.
She mentioned that it still had a lot of noise at high ISO's, but is better than the original 7D. I've seen plenty of test shots by now that confirm that. The APS-C sensor might gain 1/2+ stop over the original 7D, but there are no miracles or violations of the laws of physics.
Overall, for the price, its going to be a great camera and very popular for enthusiasts and for wildlife, but it is not a substitute for a D1X, and not advertised as such. I'd have no problem buying one, except that extreme low light is what I do most, and even a FF sensor struggles there. I don't expect a new FF sensor to be much better in low light, but some of the other areas are overdue for a big improvement.
