Can I be the first to say fail! Crop sensor in a 5D3 body and 2k. Can't see this selling well unless it doesn't get a refresh for over 5 years.

I laughed. What's so terrible about the 5d3?

It is the AF system that will sell this camera: 65 cross-type points, dual-pixel AF, enhanced weather and dust resistance, -3 ev AF. Sounds like a fantastic BIF, wildlife and sports camera, which is exactly what we expected. Should be wonderful for twilight bird shooting.

Yes! I definitely hoped this would be true.


Think new Canon lenses are overpriced? Lots (and lots) of data will set you free!

I expected more In 2014 from Canon given the competition. I love the 5D3 btw.

Shutter durability rate at up to 200,000 cycles:

So (man maths). One shot (spray and pray) = 3 seconds because your following a bird in flight. 30 images. Let's say you press the shutter button 100 times whilst out and about and record 3000 images/shutter actuations. You go out twice a week, 6000 images/actuations. One month 24,000 actuations.... in less than a year you can return it and have a new shutter assembly installed :-D.

It remains to see how it will perform, but I like what I am hearing about it. Also $1800 for body only is lower than I expected.
