Wonder if it will ship before the big eclipse in the U.S.

I hope DPAF is a given now.

I'm only posting what I can confirm, I think it's safe to say DPAF will be included. I'll work on getting some video specs.

I am guessing this means June 29th is now CR3 rated? Or is it still CR2?

Does "Vari-Angle LCD" mean it operates on a single plane like the M series, or is it articulated? Also, what can we read into the lack of mention of the AF system? Inquiring minds want to know...

YES! 26 MP, I can live with that. Not too many that my poor computer can't handle. Of course this next fall/winter might just be time for a new rig anyway.

Anyhoo, as the specs, info has been slowly leaking out this camera is more and more shaping up to be the correct fit for me. Fingers still crossed on the biggie, the AF system. But I'm optimistic it won't disappoint.

The AF will be considerably improved. It has to be. The old system (which I nevertheless did buy) was roundly excoriated for the needless chintziness Canon showed in over-nerfing it.  The old system was behind the competition. The new one has to last 4 years or so and Canon can't let themselves fall even further back over that time.

Besides, the entry level needs to be enticing, to lure crop shooters into full frame. Wean them off the budget friendly EF-S lenses, slip the red-ringed crack pipe of L-lenses into their hands...

I believe Vari-Angle is the term for the fully articulating screen. Both my G12 and 70D have articulating screens, and Vari-Angle was the moniker used on the box.

PS: I've been waiting for an articulating screen on a Canon full-frame body for ages! If AF system (number and sensitivity of points) is anything close to the 70D, I'm in.

Will this have more focus points or eye focus?

Swivel, 80D or flippy, M6? Swivel is for video and flippy for photography... I take pictures and would be disappointed in a swivel. :-PPP

If DPAF is in the APS-C entry level T7i/800D, surely, it must be included in the 6DII as well.

How about AF? number of AF points, coverage/spread? Anything?
Thanks.

Have not heard any mention of it, but I hope the GPS is retained.

But dynamic range is the crucial make-or-break wild card!

That, and a headphone jack.  ::)
