Also, the AF points cover less than half the frame, which is stupid and useless.
Other specs are impressive but will never buy that.
Uh, whats the AF coverage of the 7D? Or the 1Dx or 5DIII for that matter? Do you think its over half of the total sensor area? I'm legitimately asking here - I can't actually find any info on the % coverage area for any other camera, at least not with a quick googling. The most I can find is a mention that the 1Dx covers 53% of the horizontal distance of the sensor. If you take the area of a canon crop at 22.2mm x 14.8mm = 328.56mm^2, 40% of that is 131.424mm^2. Assuming the same ratio as the sensor (1.5), a little guess and check on the calculator comes up with a spread of about 14mm x 9.4mm or about 63% horizontal and vertical coverage. That seems pretty rockin' to me
