    I dunno - the sensor is possibly the most significant innovation to come out of the Canon labs in years. I think it's going to be far more important for their replacement of their M Series cameras than an OVF DSLR, but this does nontheless look like a very good camera.

    Wrong format for me [I don't think there's enough advantage in APSc over m4/3 to justify the bulk (particularly with zoom lenses)], but it's good to see them genuinely developing their technology. Like all Canon kit these days, it is hideously overpriced on launch - but I just don't get all this automatic negativity.

    Far FromWink

    The specs are very impressive indeed, Same AF as the 7d which is widely considered to be better than the 1d IV, 7 frames a second, an impressive sounding new sensor, wifi.....need I go On!!
    And to be fair the price is pretty good for a launch price....When some production model reviews come out then we will see if its as good as it sounds on paper.
    If it is I shall be getting one purely on its merit....Not the shiny boxWinkTongue

    I must admit that if I still shot canon my credit card would be twitching a bit in my wallet by now.
    If it works as well as its described it sounds like a real step up for a body of this price level
    (mind you, one of my buddies in the club as got the 1DX and that still exercises a dreadful fascination, even though I could neither afford it nor cope with the weight of the system these days - must stop reading about the new canon system developments Wink )

    I'd wait for the reviews. This new sensor, if I understand it correctly, seems to have every sensel divided into two - one for PDAF and one for the image. Given that Canon's recent forays into on-sensor PDAF have been less than successful and that this is obviously going to lose light collection capability I'd be very wary. Canon sensor technology hasn't been the greatest for several years.

    One of the UK magazines did a one-to-one comparison between this new Canon and the Nikon D7100 without even having laid a finger on the Canon. So I wouldn't place much store by the mag reviews Steppenwolf.

    (PS - The Nikon won on everything except live-view AF)

    There's a description of how the new sensor works here:
    in theory there is no loss of light gathering capability because the split is active only when focussing, and the output of the two parts combined when taking the picture. Should look rather interesting in live view mode?

    The videos on DPR showing the AF in movie mode are very impressive, my 40d backup might be retired soon I suspect.
