I tried to read the specifications in the canon USA website but it doesn't work. Anyway in canon Switzerland I found them. If you want here is the link. You can use a translator or even better, you can guess! Haha :)

Current 5D2 owner here; watching from a distance (I'm not going to upgrade to the 1-series for price and bulk reasons) it's interesting; here's hoping for a 5D3 with similar DR/ISO and the 7D's AF, that's what I'm waiting for ;-)

61 focus points and all of them crowded together in the centre of the frame!  What's the point in that?  They could have used the 19 point of the 7D and had similar results. Is there anyone here prepared to admit that the only place they choose to focus is in the centre of the frame?  Why not spread the focus points so they have a broader coverage which makes them a lot more usual in the real world.

Am I over-simplifying things; or does the Multiple Exposure feature look like it could do double-duty as an in-camera, 9-exposure, HDR option?

I second that! I would love to see a far more extensive spread of AF points. I think I'll be sticking with my 5DII for the next 4-5 years (by the looks of it thus far), as the 5DIII certainly won't be trumping the now-flagship 1DX AF-wise.

So long as I have a full-frame camera I'm happy - high DR, low noise, clean, crisp, rich and a nice shallow DOF!  ;D

Well I don't know about you all, but I'm skeptical of this 'new and improved' AF technology - only 5 f/2.8 sensitive points down the middle of the frame!? What the hell were Canon thinking!?

Yeah, I did think that too. Was surprised about it replacing both the D4 and Ds3, say to me another new camera is on it's way to cover the high mp needs of studios.

Completely agree, the 5D III should be interesting.

This release scares me.  I'm waiting on a new FF Canon camera.  I don't need more than 3 FPS or new video features.  The problem is the new 5d3 or 6d will likely have the same sensor for r&d cutting measures. So unless it's under $2k I'm going to have to pass and get a 5d2.

Bye bye Canon, hello Nikon.

You won't be seeing me here anymore, good luck with new Prosumer 18mp camera kids, and keep an eye on EBay, all my lenses etc will be there soon.
While you will be switching to 12Mp with 9fps, I will check your lenses. I hope they are as good as new 1D X specs.

BTW, print size of resolution 5200*3266 (~18Mp) on 300 DPI is smth about 44*29cm and 88*59cm on 150 DPI. Do you really need these sizes? Then switch to Hassel and not Nikon ;)

ok, here's my take on the new camera.

18mp i can happily live with. 21mp is just too much for portraits - records too much detail.
12 fps was to be expected on ff.
dual cf slot - about time.
61point focus - let's see if it works (i'm guessing it does with a digic 4 controlling it)
51k working iso - expandable to 204k - bring it on.
Gigabit cable slot - oh how the pics will download via that cat5 cable...
Geo-tagging is the right solution, not ever one wants it.

Price range - definitely aimed at the 1D4 area which is good.

I think the 5D3 will now be the megapixels beast of choice, for those who want megapixels.
I don't! I just want low light, good focusing and around 16-18mp!

Do people really want 30 megapixel cameras? What for? Your hard drive will just fill up twice as quick. A noise free clean 18 megapixel photograph could be upsized if that was really necessary. All I need to do now is decide on whether or not to save for one of these or wait for a 6D thingie. In camera multi exposure technology is exciting.

It looks like 21 of the focus points are in the central/sweet-spot area.  20 additional points are to the right and left of the central section; for a total of 61.  I thought the schematic showed some pretty good coverage.  It also sounds like you can "program" the AF to track from L-to-R or R-to-L; which would be handy for objects moving horizontally across the frame...

Nope it's HDR indeed. There are 4 options: bright, dark, additive, average.
