I've got absolutely nothing to contribute to this conversation. I just want to be a part of what will surely be an internet sensation.
The bird on the Display is indeed a Guineafowl, a Helmeted Guineafowl. It even shows the subspecies expexted in Kenya, the shot could well have been taken in popular Masai Mara:
I'd be very surprised if this was a replacement for the 5D2 as it's got so much of the 7D about it. Also why would you test a 5D replacement on wildlife? That's 7D territory isn't it? The large pentaprism housing could simply be that large for aesthetics / ergonomics and it is still APS-C or maybe H. Interesting that no-one seems all that bothered that the 200-400 and 600 lenses are clearly on show here but all we care about is what body he's using them on!
It's too bad the guy who shot those photos didn't ask the guy what camera it was. The tester didn't mind telling him that he was testing a 200-400 and 600ii, and that he was a tester for that matter.Oh well. My vote is 4DX
A portrait of a bird with a 600mm lens, so can we say it's not a full frame body ? So a 7D mk II looks more realistic Of course we ignore the distance between this guy and the bird but...
Oh dear god, no. Not that stupid mode dial unlock button. To me, that's one of the most useless additions that Canon can put on a semi-pro body. I can see the reason for putting it on the 60D, but come on. Anyone using a 7D or higher should have some idea of what they're doing and in all my years of photography I've never heard of anyone accidentally switching the mode dial unintentionally. If the new 5D is in fact coming standard with the unlock button, I hope that one can "downgrade" and remove it. Even for a fee, I'd do it.I'm also really digging the new grip.
