Exactly the camera I'm waiting for.
Same me! If it's 5d2 with a new sensor and 7d's AF, I'm in!
Comparing the image quality of RAW files from 5D Mark II and 5D Mark III, "new sensor" means pretty much nothing! Basicly you're in for 4 year ago's image quality with 3 year ago's AF.
I'm sick and tired of Canon playing mix & match with yesterday's tech!
But you've nailed it on the head. This camera is innovative, not because of the new tech, but because the combination of technology hits a sweet spot.
5D mkII provides the FF sensor with AF of a T2i.
7D provides killer AF but shares its sensor with a T2i.
Combine these flagship cameras of yesteryear and price it the same as 4 year old tech, and there lies its appeal.
