I love this concept, and have been waiting for an under $2k FF for a while. Being vested in Canon with a 40D and 4 lenses, I needed to up my image quality and my least expensive option in FF was the 5DII. I think the sensor delivers, but found the AF was terrible when I was shooting action (i.e. Roller Derby or Musicians in a badly lit venue). I find the only things I would change about the 5DII are to give it better AF & drop the video function. Granted, the video is a nice touch, but as a PHOTOgrapher, I have no functional need for it. I hope they take the 5D build and remove some bells & whistles and make it into a good, responsive FF still camera. I'm not at the point in my career to be shelling out the money they ask for the FF's currently on the market containing bells & whistles like video, but could really use another body to compliment the one I have. As for frame rate, to me the 5D line is/was a portrait/landscape/studio camera, and the 3.9 frame rate is quite ample. Lastly, a 5D revamp vs. the 7D would allow for CF use OR adapted SD use and possibly prompt sales of speedlights. The 7D build would theoretically stick you with only the SD option.
