I own this camera and have been using it for a month. I find it exceedingly comfortable and familiar though the menus are extremely detailed..more than I want and I essentially shoot the way I,would have with a film camera of days past with shutter priority and central 9 point focussing as I have been at this a long time. I do have definite and certain comment about lens quality. Because the sensor produces a huge raw file dimension of somewhere around 19 by 28 inches at 300 dpi it OS as of one has a contact print right out of the camera and therefore I have found lenses have an easy time of it resulting in extraordinary optical quality with every lens I own from the Al lenses down even to a Sigma 125-400 zoom which was. To known for super resolution but competent. I have tested all my assorted lenses with this camera. They are all flcussing well and since I work as a standard as a resized 24 byn36 inche 300 dpi image I can attest I have seen only improvements in the files from all the other canon cameras heretofore used. Rather than the lenses failing under the unblinking eye of a high resolution sensors quite the opposite is the result. The low level,of needed re sampling for me gives me a jaw dropping crystalline clarity and detail never seen from any of my lenses before. Further extremities of cropping result in images that were like an unresampled 5 D Mark II full frame images!!! Astonishing it is...I presumed I would have to upgrade some lenses or another but no! The soft mirror response has made handholding of this camera even with a long lens a no brainer so long as it has image stabilization. This was not always the case with my 5D Mark II.
Conclusion is, don't sweat feeling the need to replace your lenses in the purchase cost of this new camera. It is a wonderful breakthrough.

Not sure I would agree about the noise based on your test images. Despite having 5x as many pixels the image at 12,800ISO looks far less noisy than my 40D does at 1600. Sometimes I think you guys are spoiled by todays ultra low noise sensors...

Elsid any camera in the world would at 12800 compared to 1600 it's plus 4 stops .. so it's not even a comparison it's like saying my vw beetle pulls away faster than the ferrari when your in first and the ferrari starts in 5th ...
