If these specs are real, I find this an impressive upgrade. As I own the 7D (which I love) - the increase in ISO performance (close to the 5DmkIII) is a particularly attractive feature for me. 61 AF pts and 10 FPS are definitely great, but not essential (I'm quite happy with the 7D's current 19 AF pts and 8 FPS).
WiFi and GPS are 'nice' but not necessary for my use. Even less important for me are the 'lots of video' features and the dual memory card slots (please keep it CF, I have some great CF cards I want to keep using - plus same battery please while we're at it!)
The 24.1 MP is interesting.. if it has sharp per pixel definition and also has low noise across the ISO range (particularly @ ISO100 & ISO200 for landscapes) I'll be particularly happy! I do like to crop in various photos, especially for some wildlife.
Cheers! Let's see if this becomes a CR3 and then reality....!! Hope so....
I agree with Paul, I have a 7D and 50D, I will be looking for noise reduction and ISO performance.
I do not care about built in flash, finally got a SpeedLite flash, and kicking myself for waiting so long. GPS would be cool, but I love the speed of the 7D, I love the body feel of the 7D as well. With that said, I was allowed to play with a 6D and it felt REALLY nice, and I love the controls of the 6D.
But physics, are well, pretty much set in stone.
Crop sensors will always have a smaller surface area for each pixel; but allow for less expensive lens.
I like saving the money on the lens, my 2 favorite lens are both EF-S, saving something like $2000 in glass.
If the ISO/noise performance is there, I may very well add a third body to my camera drawer. (after the prices and supply settle, of course)
