Initially, I was dissapointed with the apparent softness from my 7D, especially when compared to the output from the 5DII. But, with some carefull sharpening and contrast boost, it's got plenty of detail. I'm not sure the AA filter destroys detail, I think it mostly lowers micro contrast more. A tad sharpening and a localised contrast boost seems to really help buff the images to a very fine level.

The AA filter does destroy fine detail, however sharpening will give the illusion of bringing back some of this detail.
The softness isn't my biggest issue though, it's the effect on micro contrast and a 'muddy' look that is more apparent for me. Yes you can give the files a contrast boost to minimise this, but you can never really get back that natural 'crisp' look of an image (that's why I think so many people love the original 5D). Also this is allot of time spent in PP that shouldn't have to be, and all the extra sharpening and contrast boosting has a negative effect on noise, and while the 7d in this instance doesn't suffer near as much banding as the 5D's, it doesn't exactly have very pleasing grain (it kind of look digital, similar to jpg artefacts).

As for all the other aspects of the 7D, yep I agree, it's a great body, and I would have purchased one if the IQ was better.

When the 7D first came out, I thought it was largely the glass holding it back due to the pixel density, but since the advent of AA'less crops, you can see that isn't the case at all, just look how much detail the nex 7 can resolve compared to even the 5Dii, and the 5Dii also has the FF advantage of less magnification allowing lenses to appear sharper.

Personally my next camera will likely not have an AA filter if it's shown that moire isn't a common occurrence at weddings etc. I generally shoot wide open with primes so I doubt it would be an issue but will wait and see.

Ha! Funny this gets brought up; I was just getting up to speed with this thread by reading the last five pages and I was thinking this too; Thing is, Vinny, that over-using that kind of sign-off kind of renders it a little meaningless and perhaps a tad insincere (not at all saying you are, just saying that that is how it could be the inferred...)

+1

All the very best

I think the 5DIII images show how the new camera will be styled. It's sort of halfway between a 7D and 5DII with a bit of 60D thrown in. It's not as hansome as the 5DII, which looks very nice to my eyes.
I'd love the see the 5DIII with it's new grip attached.

A french famous forum has already announced it : http://www.eos-numerique.com/ (external link)

Not much details but the guys, working in Canon, claimed that the specs listed are not the only one surprise. A 590EX flash gun is coming, and the FF line will evolve a lot this year (with 3 cameras)... !!

Trust them, they announced the 5D2 on time, with right specs.

Agreed, subjectively 5D III photo's look a feminine to me, the mark II still got it's syle.
The front left body rubber looks... odd to me.
But I'm looking forward for it's performance, don't judge book by it's cover, right?

Wish I could understand English.....use Google translator !

I can help you, here are the main info not listed on Canonrumors :
-590EX
-3 FF bodies this year
-"6<fps<7"
-batteries & grip of the 5Dmk2

I think specs are easily understandable.

5D2 users don't look very satisfied about this simple ugrapde at "3250€ street price"

Translation from French:

I confirm that Friday, March 2 Canon will make his announcement of the new 5DMKIII Some features: 22 Million Pixels 6-7 frames / sec Battery LP-E6 New AF faster Various improvements in the video Price: + / - € 3250 Update 29/02

And then if you read the thread, it's a bunch of people saying that Canon is whacked for that price and no way they'll buy it.

I'm sure in a couple days they'll be discussing AA filters on the 7D too.  :p
