I've tried to narrow down the features and combine them in a way I thought would be most interesting. It was difficult separating some of these features since they are sometimes intertwined, like Digic 5+ and 6FPS. I tried to do so based on a functional standpoint.

We've got a week or so to go before these ship and wanted to create another discussion for those who have taken the plunge or have decided to ignore the haters.

After you vote, please elaborate on why you are buying or plan to buy, what kind of shot this new feature will allow you to finally get, or what you plan on doing first.

One quick note: I allowed multiple choices for those who simply can't choose. Please no more than two.

So glad they finally updated the metering and autofocusing. It was soooo behind the competition.

I haven't pre-ordered and probably will not upgrade for a few months, but the two features that I am looking forward to is the improved AF and the improvements that come along with the new processor, mostly the better high ISO. So far the samples I have seen are impressive but they also looked like there was quite aggressive NR.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.
I used to hate math but then I realised decimals have a point.

AF. The ISO performance also looks a little more beefy. These two are enough for me to sign a check for.

I'm sure the AF will be a huge improvement over my 5Dc, but 6FPS is my choice.
I would have so bought the 5D2 by now if it weren't for the FPS.

I guess there aren't many videographers on this site.

Since I shoot inside dark rooms a lot I'm most excited about the ISO, then it would be the AF and FPS for sports.

They're probably all at planet5D or something similar. POTN was long a photographer's forum before the outburst of DSLR videography.

I voted for the sensor, but only because I'm anxious for more dynamic range. Still anxious to see what that actually looks like. AF, too, but DR especially.
