It is really starting to sound like they RADICALLY improved the AF but kinda lamed out on everything else. For that, IMO, it should not have been above the old $2700 price. The new AF should be totally awesome, but I mean for 3.5 years it was expected to have SOMETHING be much better for the same price.
I really hoped that at least the video would totally stomp it out of the park but all the talk is it's still pretty soft video and has more of a DVD feel compared to the cams that can give blu-ray-like resolution. darn. I thought they'd at least knock the video out of the park in all respects.
I don't get all the talk about we chose 22MP to focus on image quality and getting perfect video if the video turns out to still be mushy and soft and the low ISO has zero dynamic range improvement and now I wonder if the high ISO will be more like 1/3rd stop instead of 2/3rd stops better unless you shoot over ISO6400 which is always a bit marginal anyway.
Man, I do like the AF, but I kinda feel like they held back on us a bit too much to deserve my $3500. I'll see. I may wait it out a while. It sounds like the video world is semi-underwhelmed and that may not create a market sustaining rush as much as it did for 5D2 pricing. We'll see.... Of course ridding moire/aliasing is certainly very big true, that alone will make a big difference, especially for landscape/nature-type stuff, but to still have the old not really at all full 1920x1080 after 3.5 years, hmmm.
For $2700 I think I'd be diving at it now, but $3500.... man, I don't know at all. Can't help but feel they are over-pricing it. Maybe DxO results and the detailed video tests will still change my mind.
