While I'm sure in time this will prove to be a very good camera, still one has to wonder, in three years is that the best Canon could do? Too bad Steve Jobs wasn't the CEO of Canon. Imagine not only the camera, but the entire EOS ecosystem we'd be seeing today. With announcement this significant, we would be seeing new and innovative Flash heads, a newly designed GUI, better power management, new and more efficient batteries, probably a few new lenses, new connection technologies like Thunderbolt built in. This would have been a camera that changed and redefined Digital Photography, not just one that barely one ups the competition until the next round. If there's one thing I've learned about living and working in Japan for the last 25 years is that Japanese have absolutely no imagination and always want to play things safe. I hate to be the thorn here but it sickens me to think what this product could have and probably should have been. Canon is an awesome company they just need someone with more imagination to lead them because frankly I could do a better job of it.
