Do we know if the HDMI out recording will result in sharper images after grading?

This is all a "video" firmware update, right?
Just asking...I shoot stills and the first thing I did when I got the camera was disable the video button.  :)
So...do anyone have the simple update translation?
Thanks.

So this update does not address the issue with AF-assist beam lag. Is that a separate update?

I also shoot stills only but I do not consider it a "video" firmware update only.
They will add f/8 autofocus capability after all.

Well, it's partly a "video" update... but another part of me is pretty darn excited to rent a 300 f/4 and slap my x2 extender on it ;)

Do we think this update will come to the 6D as well? I need clean HDMI as well for live streaming.

Anyone know of some good (cheaper) video recorders to use with that clean HDMI out that would be better than the compressed video on the SD card?

Not cheap, but one of the best:

That is what I was exactly thinking about since I tested the 300 mm f4 last summer. That and a TC will be the closest option I will have for an autofocus 600 mm  :D

However, i am still with  my 5D II and I have not found a decently priced 300 mm f4, same with the 2x tc, so I guess everything has to wait or be rented  ???

Hope they fix the AF points so that the active point is red
