Still too much vitriol about a camera that none of you have tried, or even read a review.
Where will you all be if the hands-on reviews come in praising how well it focuses? Too busy poisoning some other thread or product I suppose.
BTW it IS a cross-type AF sensor with f2.8 lenses.
yeah the center point is (and i've only seen mention of cross type not double cross)... most likely very similar to the 5Dmk2 (which is a very good center point)
my point is if ALL the points were the new double cross type and a completely new sensor with a focus (excuse the pun) on accuracy and spread rather than speed and tracking it would be a pretty sweet event camera no doubt
however i suspect the outer points are going to be only as useable as the 5dmk2 outer points and that is ok in good light and unusable in low light
my point was canon had an opportunity here to put out a real killer low number of point AF system but missed it
sure i haven't used it but i've used enough canon cameras to know the limitations of the different type of AF points and the vanilla non cross type AF points are barely adequate
I also meant to mention has everyone seen the spread of the nikon D600 39 AF points? what a joke it may as well have 5 points for all the area it covers....
