Price 100 less, but it is actually much more expensive than the Mk1 on release date - dollar power in play.

Whelp...  Looks like I made the right decision in going with the Nikon D750 (with lens for the same price as this body).  One card slot on a $2k camera is a deal killer for me.  :o

I was really hoping they wouldn't do this so I could keep using my Canon lenses on a rig with DPAF and a tilty screen.

That seems like a very reasonably price, as it's only going to go down over time. It's hard to deny that Nikon's D750 is a bargain though.

Judging by the price difference with the 5D IV, this will probably cost something like AU$2799, which is AU$400 more than the original.

We have to see the actual performance and up to what aperture the points remain cross type, but 45 cross type AF points sounds better than the 41 cross type of the 5D4 (only 21 points for lenses slower than f/4).
With the 5D4 I'm a bit disappointed by the measly horizontal spread of the 21 cross type AF points with the 100-400.

Looks like the AF specs are same as 80D.  If so, 27 points are F8. Not bad.

Sounds great.

I expect this camera to be in the £2200 mark in the UK, doing the conversion, with VAT works out at about £1900, but we always seem to get charged more. The pound is quite weak, so that won't help either.

If its over £2000 grand on release (unless it's like 2049 or something silly) I will wait for the first price drop, but as Summer has well and truly started, I can't wait to get out with a new body :)

I'm surprised to see any manufacturer in 2017 not adding 4K, especially at this price point. I guess all of the energy, vision, and innovation is with the competitors these days, with the exception of Nikon. I don't see anything here that's the slightest bit exciting and that would cause me to upgrade from my existing 6D.

I know the 6D Mark II will be awesome over time however, dang!  No dual SD Card slot!  I'm not too surprised about it not having 4K however, would have been nice though.  Also, was GPS taken out of the 6D Mark II?

Definitely seems like a full-frame 80D which is good, except for no dual SD card slots.

Sounds like a decent camera for the price. Hope they do not skip the GPS. I guess there is one down side to the cellphone based GPS data like in the M6, it is impossible to get the GPS data while hiking a trail without any cell phone signals. Somebody correct me if I am wrong here. I know that phone have dedicated GPS receiver but to get the location they need to download the map with needs data connection. I hope the SD card slot is UHS-ll. The other items I had hoped for in the past were dual card slots and 4k@30p, 1080@ 180fps. Sounds like none of those are happening. My thought is that all these specs are still speculations. Lately it almost sounds like nobody gets specs unless nok____ta leaks the actual specs a day to a week prior to launch. If these are in fact the actual specs I do not see a point in getting this while I have a 5D4 and 80D. I am really happy with that combo. And for Video I have Sony a 6500. I will definitely buy 6D2 if it has 1080p@180fps and 4k and canon charges a $500 extra. I can get rid of the Sony system completely

The equivalently price Sony and Nikon bodies do not offer UHD, so why would the Canon?

Holy crap are you kidding me?  I haven't been following Canon, but dang, that's fracking horrible.  The D750 with the 24-120 F4, 51-pt AF, same or better DR/ISO, from 2014 is $2k.  At what point does Canon start competing with Sony, Nikon, Fuji, etc. and stop competing with themselves?
