I can see some uses for it however. For starters, table top stuff in studio's where multi cross type sensors won't give a lot of benefit anyway, or for just the casual weekend enthusiast who wants particularly decent IQ.
However for myself and obviously many many others, this is just... well... *insert expletives* Looks like Canon don't mind if Nikon kicks them in the guts this time around. Can't believe it only has one cross type focus point. Wow. Yes, this should have been under $2k to be more viable.
I guess those who are interested in the 5D2 should snap them fast in case they are very soon discontinued. Save a few dollars perhaps too.
Why didn't they call it an 8D? Weird.
