Sounds like a great update. But... April? That is just ridiculous! I can't believe they are serious about announcing an update and then saying it'll be six months before it is available.
The AF point update NEEDS to happen. It's getting really old.
It may indeed be ridiculous that it isn't available now.
Given that they aren't able to push this out before April what would you have preferred? 1. Not knowing about it until April? or 2. Knowing about it now? [I'm not directing this question specifically to you okcomputer, but to everyone...I think it would be interesting to learn how people think about it.]
For my part I prefer to know about it now rather than later. I was actually thinking of selling my 100-400mm, but with this announcement I'll be hanging on to it at least until April to see how it works with the 1.4x III. In other words, this announcement helps me with my buying/selling decisions over the next few months. I appreciate that.
