To me it looks like Canon has got it wrong: it is not "Speed & Quality" what is needed but rather "Quality & Speed".

I even have some hesitations over the latter. While there definitely IS the need for some very specific applications, most of the time it looks to me it is just about pointless high speed shots and even then heavily cropped to save what there is to save because of mindless shutter clicking.
While I agree that a high fps isn't the answer to getting a shot, there are times where it is needed. The majority of the time, you can predict when the "moment" is going to happen, but for wildlife and some sports, that isn't always possible. You have an idea it is about to happen, but not exactly when, that is when the motor drive is handy. It's like any tool, it's there for when you need it, but shouldn't be used all the time. If you aren't shooting subjects where it is needed, then you just don't use it to avoid unecessary shots.

Darn. "Only" 6FPS & ISO25600 native. I was hoping the earlier rumor of 6.9 7.4999 7.5 FPS was true  :P. Glad to know it EXACTLY has the same AF unit as the 1Dx: 61pt w/ 41-pt cross-type.

Wow, no less than 5 file formats for EOS Movie mode  8). No Motion JPEG or is that subsumed under MPEG-4?

61-point high-density reticular AF (up to 41 crosstype points)

Is this the same as 1DX?
