Hmm. I'm actually a bit underwhelmed.
It has only 22MP vs. 36MP and it doesn't even hit any higher frame rate than the D800 can (with grip).
Wow I was so hoping the 6.9fps would at least be correct. 6.0fps is still a bit less than even the 40D/50D.
If they were going to stick to 6fps they should've given us at least 28-30MP and if they wanted 3x3 video sampling, well then just sample out of an inner rectangle, FF is already much larger area than most movies are shot on anyway and you'd get a bit more reach from the video.
No mention of the 1DX metering system, color aids for AF or digic 4 to assist AF.
So the D800 has 50% more MP, probably more advanced AF, the same fps (with grips) and 5fps in 25MP mode, it may even have better DR at low ISO.
If it at least had done the 6.9-7.5fps that may have been just enough two almost always get two key frames, but at 6.0fps you will only sometimes get two key frames. Sure it's way better than 4fps and even 5fps, but 6.0 flat is really at the utter low limits of where more fps just begins to help. And I mean if the 7D could do 18MP at 8fps and now years later you say the 5D3 can only do 22MP at 6fps, that is freaking less throughput than the 7D had. Granted the mirror box is FF and speed costs more there, but come one, at least toss us the bone of 7fps. And freaking give us full 1DX or at least full 1D4.
I just hope when the announcement its tonight it actually mentions true raw DR improvements of 2 stops at lowest ISO and that the AF is much closer to 1DX than it sounds from this leak....
This would have kicked ass two years ago, but today is today.
Too conservative again and for their 25th anniversary EOS release they have brought shame upon themselves (unless there are some amazing things not revealed in this quick spec list).
I knew that guy who saw it weeks ago and said it would be a somewhat underwhelming release thanks to Canon marketing ruling the roost again would be true although I had hoped not.
