SD cards, only 11-pt AF with 1 cross-type, 97% VF coverage, this pales in comparison to the similarly-priced D600. I wonder why they would expend so much development costs when they should have just dropped the price of the 5D2 to $1500 and the 5D3 to $2500.

Here's a much more exciting product launch today than the 5D mk 2.01...

I'd also like to know if it has a headphone jack and on-screen audio meters. If it does, I'll probably get one. If not, I don't see any reason for me not to keep using my 5dmkII.

This could be a real winner.  I agree we need more detail on the AF.  I would hope they are all cross type, with the 'one' everyone is referencing being the more sensitive type.  Another pivot point will be the ISO performance.  If this has usable 12800, or better yet good 12800 and usable 25600 (like the 5dMKIII) then that will be awesome. 

Any mention of AFMA?

What is the point of this camera?

To show that Canon can deliver a cheap-n-nasty FF DSLR?

So far this makes me even happier that I just bought a 5D Mk II.  I got it for a great deal and I honestly feel like it would be a step sideways (or even down) to have waited for the 6D.

No built-in flash? Why?

Canon is doing everything wrong. I keep waiting for them to wake up, but I guess it'll take them being #2 or #3 in the market before they get with the program. As impossible as that would've seemed a few years ago, now it seems inevitable.

One thing I'm confused about is the "Screen dots" on the LCD, not sure if that's a misprint or what.  But 5D3 has 1,040,000, 5D2 has 920,000, and this only has 102,400?  How bad does the LCD look then?

BEST FEATURE:  TOUCHSCREEN

Why, this is the only thing that beats Nikon D600.   :o  Nice move Canon.  You're the best!   >:(

I'm getting one but not because I'm impressed but rather I need it for adapter testing (mirror interference determination). 


What I would have liked:

pop up flash
articulated screen
sub 1600 price tag
no touchscreen

What is kind of cool though:

built in wifi
GPS

I don't think it's fair to assume that just because this has 11 AF points that it's automatically as bad as the 5DII, I think we'll have to wait on some reviews for that. 

It seems like a decent camera, although if it was $1500 it would be an amazing camera.  But even at $2099 it seems like they're still trying to position it towards rebel users wanting to upgrade to full-frame.
