I like it.. But I'd wait for reviews on the AF before buying..

Though from my understanding, if this is the same/similar sensor to the 80D Im betting the AF is pretty good on it and Canon maybe finally has a good mirrorless camera to compete with Sony, Olympus and Panasonic... $979 isnt too bad of a price either if it can deliver..

Not sure on ergonomics, would have to hold one, the button layout looks like you might hit multiple buttons by accident...

And im guessing the "Digital 5-axis IS" is not a sensor shift implementation

Yes.

If the reviews are good, I'll probably get it for my day-to-day camera and keep my 7D only for birding instead of upgrading to the 80D/7DII.

Maybe you have to in order to keep your nose away from the touch screen? I don't know, I've never used a touch screen camera with a viewfinder before...

I had one of the Panasonics (perhaps 2) that had that feature my nose kept moving the AF point so I had to turn it off. Can this camera turn off the touch screen? it could get really annoying for some if you cant. Does look nice though if a little too much, well pre order here is over £1k body only and I will start thinking of 35mm sensor sized cameras at that price.

Look real nice. I'm likely there. I just can't do my large DSLR any longer. Sad thing is that my 5D3 has prolly lost so much value that it'll end up being an even swap when I go to sell it on the used market! oh well....

Looks pretty cool but I think that touch screen may be an issue, I'm guessing it can be turned off. I've got a big nose, I will be focusing on the same point all the time :-}.

I've been looking at Fuji for mirrorless so I'll be curious to see how this stacks up. I guess the one big benefit is I can still use my Canon lenses with this. How do you guys think the performance will be with the adaptor?

Apparently you can turn off "part" of the screen so your nose wont get in the way!
