Wow and I thought Canon doesn't have any more tricks up its sleeves...
DPR said it best and I can't wait to see Dual Pixel CMOS AF appear in a full frame camera and their mirrorless system. Of all of the major players in the mirrorless market, I think Canon have the weakest system. Assuming Dual Pixel CMOS AF works as intended, then Canon will have what it takes to take on the OM-D and the GH3.
I'm still a little skeptical with what DPR said about Dual Pixel CMOS AF's very low if not impossible to have front or back focusing issues. Isn't this possible with phase change technology? If front and back focusing problems is all but eliminated, then what advantage will contrast detection AF will have then? If not, then Canon should go all out and implement Dual Pixel CMOS AF throughout its lineup of cameras.
My one concern is that Dual Pixel CMOS AF is limited to f/11 and faster. For APS-C, it's not a concern for me. However, if they implement this in their FF lineup, I hope it can go as low as f/16!
