Somebody was asking about extensive low light testing, there is no RAW software available for it yet, so nobody has had any depth look at IQ. Also the firmware is still considered pre-production so there's really nothing to gain on it yet other than the basic operations.
It's also not legal for anyone outside of Canon's approval to even have possession of it yet either, so those in depth reviews will have to come in the second part of February.

A good reminder to myself to keep my mouth shut when I don't know what I'm talking about. ;) Seldom does putting someone down, elevate one's self and I can't think of a better example than this one - wow.
