I think it's awesome :D Good to see pretty much complete ignorance of the megapixel race (Nokia won anyway :P)

Just a quick question...I saw on CNET a table comparing the the 5D Mark II, 5D Mark III, Nikon D800, and the table says the Mark II's ISO is 100-6400 (expandable to 12,800).

My 5D in 'Auto ISO' can only go up to 3200, and I have to manually select anything above 3200? Are they wrong, or is there something I've been doing wrong all this time?

For me, this turns an excitement to be a disappointment. I don't know about anyone else, but 5D Mark II can be had used in like new condition for $1600 if you look around really well. I don't think I can justify almost $2000 more for a body. I'm excited to see the new body, but it'll be a couple of years or so before I will touch it. :(

What they mean is, that *you* can select up to 6400 all the time, but the *camera* will only select up to 3200 in auto. You have to set a Custom Function for *you* to be able to select 12k. Same as my 7D, custom functions get me to 6k and 12k, but auto is only ever 3200.
My sister's 550d, and my mum's pentax ist*dl and new k5 all let you set a min-max range for auto ISO, but my 7D doesn't. I hope that's finally coming to the expensive models...
Too much gear, too little space.

wow that's a huge increase in price for custom auto iso, 3-year-old metering, and 1DX AF.
 
does 6fps make a difference compared to 4? idk I don't care about that anyway.

I mean ok this is a new DSLR and all, improvements are to be expected.
but the greatest improvement is on the price side I guess.

oh well, I'm going to pass on this.

Nikon D800 native iso: 100-6400
Canon 5d3 native iso: 100-25600 ???

Is this right? Looking forward to the high iso samples to see any significant improvements.

That's a big selling point I think Canon just did, if those extra 2 stops of iso are usable!

It'd be pretty good if only 1 extra stop was usable.  It'd be GREAT if 2 stops of iso are usable.
