I just remark that for a few people  wanting video implemented on a DSLR,  but there's no reason their needs would decide what everybody else should have. So, all DSLR bodies must have now video, even if  video pisses off the the majority of the  owners  forced to buy it when  just wanting  a still photo camera. ;D

Canon don't care about our preferenecs, just wanting to sell more cameras and lenses, putting  video in each one.

I wonder whether it is really just "a few people" who want video implemented in DSLR.

By brother in law and his brother both bought Canon DSLRs (600D & 60D), and video was more important to them than the ability to change lenses. It's arguable whether they should have bought a DSLR to begin with, but as noted - Canon's decision to include video in those cameras increased it's bottom line.

I don't really care for video, as in I have a pocket camera that shoots video anyway. It did come handy when a friend used her connections to get a video clip for her boyfriend's song - she got 2 x 5Dmk2s loaned from me & another friend, two videographers shot the footage, and all the required footage was shot within 1&1/2 work days. It's not Hollywood quality, but for something pulled in a jiffy, I think it's very impressive.

[They've used whatever lenses available, including 50mm f/1.4 for shallow DOF, TS-E 24mm mk2 for wide shots, Sigma 12-24mm mk1 for ultra wide shots, etc.]

I didn't buy a Canon DSLR, nor would I upgrade it, for the video abilities, but it's really nice to have.

I'm waiting for this combination but for myself I wouldn't miss the video if it was removed. I guess we need to illustrate patience in the meantime.

I'm in an annoying situation as i need another backup camera and i'm very reluctant to buy a mk2 or any other model right now when we are so overdue for a release.

I'd love some new L glass thrown into the mix. a 24-105 that is actually SHARP would be a nice addition.

I want Video in my camera; it makes my life so much easier.  Why carry both a video cam & still cam to a still shoot with just minor video.

And 1080p HDSLR video will fulfill most needs; it's just not practical for some higher end projects with huge budgets.

I think Canon needs a 14-24 2.8 lens with a superior lens cap (like the 17tse) more than a 5d3 or 24-70 is

I eagerly await the 5D Mark III, however I'm more interested in a 50mm f/1.4 II that replaces the "micro" USM with "ring" and decreases the MFD.

For those wanting an EF 24-70mm f/2.8L with IS, just remember that Canon has yet to release an EF (not EF-S) lens with IS that does not reach at least 100mm.  I'm not saying I think they won't add it, just don't assume they will.   ;)

I got started with my 60D and I've loved it so far, but I did buy my lenses with the idea of moving towards full frame.  However the big dilemma will be: Buy a 5D Mk. II while it's getting cheaper and get a VERY proven body or wait and see what the 5D Mk. III brings...

Yep, the 24-105mm is a terribly SOFT lens.  Here's an example with a 100% crop below, to show just how soft...

Neuro, why must you constantly rain on all the whiners' parade with your persistent dose of reality?  :)   Similar to what I said in another post, it's amazing at how quick folks are to decry any particular piece of equipment as bad.  Does anyone seriously think any L lens is actually soft, poor build quality, slow, distorted, etc. in absolute terms... each lens may have it's less than optimal performance at particular aperture or at one end of the zoom range or even be overall less sharp relative to some other lens that was designed for different purposes but the differences are not huge, certainly not "good" and "bad".
