This is borderline insulting.
When the 5DII came out 4 years ago, the AF was underwhelming.... now they announce a FF camera over 2000 dollars with ANOTHER 11 point AF?
I was waiting for this camera to upgrade from my 5D Classic. I would've bought a 5DII a long time ago, but i wanted better AF.
EVERYONE has been saying to just put something similar to the AF of the 7D in the 6D and make it FF and that would be cool....
Then they deliver ANOTHER 11PT AF?
ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?
From my perspective, everything Canon has released in the past couple of years has either been overpriced(mainly 24-70, 24mm, 28mm lenses, and 5DIII(should've been 3000 off the bat)) or just completely uninteresting/seemingly inferior to Nikon..
The only things about this camera that i see as an obvious upgrade from my 5D Classic from 2005 are the GPS, the size(i like smaller, 5DC is a brick), and the screen on the back......
of course the sensor and ISO are better, but they should be!!!
If this camera was 1200 dollars i'd consider it instead of the D600.....
but with these specs and price, THIS IS A JOKE......
It's not even close.
Go ahead and flame away on me, but if you think this camera is better than the D600(especially after the D800 sensor trounced the 5DIII in tests,) then you are obviously smoking what Canon wants you to be smoking.
This is borderline insulting to Canon users and people heavily invested in the system.
i'll wait for some tests on the D600 to consider buying it, i may still get the D800, 5DIII or RX1, but I won't even consider this camera, and this should be exactly what I was waiting for(a 5DII with 7D AF.)
DSLR's are a dying breed, I'm really getting more interested in lightening my bag(I travel a lot, hike, etc.) and it seems that Canon only wants to hasten their demise by offering underwhelming, un-innovative products at exorbitant prices.
