Never thought I'd be a part of that crowd, but I honestly think this camera is a very "meh" proposition. I know Canon protects lines, but this just seems like a very poor value compared to the rest of the market out there. The price is good, but the EF-S and 1080p fiasco, no 24p, line skipping, and from what I heard, IPB compression. Even DIGIC 7.
Someone at Canon should speak up and just point out that the R line won't take away sales from the cinema line. There are many more ways to differentiate video cameras from mixed use cameras. It'll still sell like hotcakes (and more power to those who enjoy it, I don't mean to take anything away from them), but this really feels like a uni-tasker than a mixed use body, and Canon feels like they've already done everything they can on the stills side of things.
