Canon make hundreds of billions of dollars a year, they should be giving putting these specs in a rebel camera not a camera this level.

My microwave from 10 years ago had these specs, get with the times Canon!

Just preparing everyone for the other brand fanboys :p seriously though it looks amazing and can’t wait to see what they can do with the 1Dx mirrorless version!

What a beast! The IBIS rumour was (predictably) wrong. And a new DIGIC. No word on the sensor specs.

I'm not familiar with the HEIF file format - I'll have to look it up.

I bet (hope) we get IBIS in the pro mirrorless in a year or two, since it’s not here.

Good news overall!

Where did the BH guy get his Raw video info from? Full frame Raw 4k video would genuinely be a thing.

And that rebel should be in a kit for less than 350 bucks

Wait 20fps with mechanical shutter and tracking? That is mad!
In Live View mode though. 16fps over the viewfinder.

But what struck me the most is the “new exciting feature” we we were rumoured by the CRG:

The camera will also offer a new additional control for selecting AF points, built into the AF-ON button, allowing photographers to change AF points on-the-fly for the best composition – further helping to simplify their work.

AF Joystick built in AF-ON button? Wow. So in back button focusing mode one can move AF points around and then engage AF system in one go. Nice.
