your next upgrade cycle is 4 years away!

70D had a 2.5 year lifespan.

4 K computer monitors and capable hardware not exactly cheap , approaching gaming spec hardware

yup. Consumer level camera footage is expected to be edited on consumer level hardware.

we don't need automobiles, we need faster horses...

not even really sure what you are trying to say. If you need a 4K automobile, get a 1DXII or wait a few months until the 5D iV is announced. In this case, the 80D is the horse and it's moving pretty fast.

Sold my 70D the other day. Not because I want to buy the 80D but because I'm probably switching to FUJIFILM.

80D Looks like a descent but not big upgrade from the 70D. Improved AF is always welcomed and continues AF & 5 fps @ live view (which was something I was missing on my 70D) is terrific.
I'm mostly interested on see how the sensor match up. Not expecting much since the 70D had basically the same IQ as the (at the time) 4 year older 7D MKI.

Surpried they didn't include 4K as it's aimed a videographers.

you been following the sensor tech built into the 1DXII?

I have a hard time imagining they aren't using the same manufacturing process.

Not surprised at the omission of 4K. Canon just added it to the 1DX II. They obviously feel it's a pro-level feature.

Panasonic put 4k into a 700 dollar camera,, my phone does 4k,

I don't get why canon won't put it into this new 2016 camera
. Let's assume the 5d4 has it, .. if you want 4k from canon you must spend over 2 grand?

I was waiting on this camera ,. Not sure what I'm doing in sure it will be a great camera .. but a couple of things that I was hoping for are missing

I had a play with the 80D and 18-135 tonight. Pretty impressed! It feels like a pretty big step up from the 70D.

Unfortunately the card slot was sealed closed and we weren't allowed to take photos of the back of the camera, but the LCD was gorgeous, and very responsive!

It was night time, and the thing focused pretty easily even in the dark conditions. The touchscreen was also the nicest one I've used on a camera :)

i don't get why people keep bringing up their phone having 4K.

if that is an acceptable level of quality for you, that's great, but I would bet that for most conditions and camera operators, the quality of Canon's Full HD is better than your phones 4K.

that's not even considering all the other video, much less still photography features of the camera.

I couldn't care less about 4k. I don't sit 1 foot away from my tv and I dont have a tv the size of my living room wall. Kind of similar to some people being concerned with high MP cameras.

A fully working touchscreen is outstanding, despite all the naysayers in the 1DXII thread. Those that don't see the need or state it is almost useless haven't had any time or extended time with one of Canon's working implementations. ;) Sure during normal operations of looking through the viewfinder, you are going to use the buttons/dials, etc, however the rest of the time you spend with the camera not looking through the viewfinder, the touchscreen is great.

DPReview says it has built-in GPS (https://www.youtube.co​m/watch?v=b9rr0C2ntkU (external link), time roughly 0:50), but I haven't seen that mentioned anywhere else. It's not listed in any of the specs on Canon's web site that I can see. Pre-launch information? Wishful thinking?

I'd call 45 cross type AF points, 27 points doing AF at f/8, and AF down to -3 EV a pretty huge upgrade. I'm not saying AF will be better than the 5D3 or original 1Dx, but those stats are certainly better.

Added to that there's the newer RGB+IR metering (7560-pixel), and a 100% viewfinder.

If it does also have good low ISO DR (a trait that appears to exist on the 1Dx II) then I suspect it'll be quite a camera.

100D touch screen is fantastic IMHO. So quick and easy to change settings even for 1st time use.
If I had to chose buttons and dials vs touchscreen only I'd never chose touch screen but I wish touch screens were always available.

This AF system, with 27 active AF points at f/8, is better spec'ed than any previous 1D body.

"lenses with maximum apertures of f/8 or higher, and some lenses with extenders attached may operate at a maximum of 27 points"

1D - 1D4, 5D3, and 1Dx will only AF with center AF point at f/8.

It seems a bit vague. Some lenses with extenders, eg 200 f2 with a 1.4TC. How about 300 f4 with 2x TC?
.It seems clear it will AF at f8 which is great. The way I read it that's all that is being said.

OK. It's 27 points with two lenses : 100-400 II with1.4TC III and 200-400 with 1.4 or 2x III. All others centre point at f8.
As owner of 100-400 II and 1.4TC III they have my attention!
