Please...NO!

If you don't like it, let it in place and it will be like there is no swivel ;)
i miss the swivel screen on the 5D series

Yeah it would definitely come in handy when shooting in weird positions.

Regarding video:
I really want continuous autofocus.

WiFi would be a welcomed addition. AF linked metering would help. The ability to use exposure compensation in manual mode while using Auto ISO would make sense. Still, all of those things combined wouldn't make me upgrade.

What might make me upgrade would be a 3-4-stop improvement in high-ISO performance, a significant jump in resolution, and a built-in AF assist beam.

I would prefer a camera with as few unrequired extra gimmicks as possible, so definitely no video and no weird "press these 20 buttons in the right order" functions Canon seem so keen on. Then I'd want to fill that vast now empty space with as many megapixels and as good a dynamic range as possible.

Video is not a gimmick just because you don't use it.

It is for me. Those who want video should use a purpose designed video camera, not a bodged up stills camera.

Are you not just asking for a 5Ds? It has very little video functionality in exchange for a [remarkably] huge boost in resolution.

My main interest is in landscape, not sport (I imagine that's what the "s"means?). When I bought my current 5D2, the 5D3 was already on sale but I took advise from my local shop and it continues to suit me very well.

Quite the opposite, in fact. The "s" is Canon's designation for the ultra-high-resolution version in one of their particular lineups. It gives up some of the more broad capabilities of the MkIII - certain video features and faster frame rate, for example - in exchange for a 50.6 megapixel sensor. I have no idea whether the 5Ds is actually better for your needs, but going by your "wish list" above, it's very likely going to be a closer match to your wants than the upcoming MkIV (with the small bonus that it's already been released, haha.)

I actually agree with this...

I'd like to see a separation of Still and Video specific models...

I'm on my 3rd Digital SLR (and if I can twist the wife's arm for a new 5DIII, it'll be 4th) and I've never used any of them for Video, not even looked at it...as a photographer, it's completely irrelevant to me.

What's more, by incorporating it, I'm sure the manufacturer left out other photographic improvements that could have been there...for instance, while I covet a FF 5DIII, i'll miss the motorsport friendly 8fps on the 7D...

We're not talking cheap generic devices here, a Digital SLR of the 5DIII/5DIV ilk is a serious and specific bit of kit, it shouldn't need to cover cross purposes...


7D MarkII l 50 1.8 STM l15-85 IS USM l 100-400 IS L l 2x converter l 580EX II l Wireless remote l A computer l Some software l A vehicle to get me around...;)

Well, for the jobs I'm doing I need both still and video so it's very relevant to me.

That's fine. Then a good SLR for the photography side and a good video camera for the video sounds like the way to go to me.

I understand that having the two in one device may be of benefit to some, but I fear it's always going to be a case of trade offs...

Neither aspect of the device will be as good as a stand alone device in each area...so, in effect, you're actually getting the worst of both worlds...you know, jack of all trades, master of none kinda thing...

Back in the good old days of VHS, when handy cams were popular, my brother picked up a HUGE broadcast quality VHS video recorder...it was a bit cumbersome compared to the little hand held jobs (it sat on the shoulder with an adjustable eye piece) but the quality of the video was so superior...

A good example of something built to do just one job, but do it well!
