Anyone else finding this as attractive a feature as I am? Being able to preset different AF points based on camera orientation would be immensely useful for me, it is a feature that would actually help me get more shots.

I was planning on replacing my 1DII/1DsII with MarkIII's some time after the new 1D comes out, but useful features like this may tempt me to go for the new model. I'm also really liking the looks of the highly customizable control layout. Really looking forward to what is in store for the 1-series after seeing the 7D.

I agree, I think it's awesome having the camera switch points on the fly like that.
90% of my 1Dm3 shots are portrait format, and it is a bit of a pain changing focus points when going to landscape format.
Ideas like this are one of those "so simple why didn't I think of it" kind of things. Hopefully Canon put a patent on it so it can be an exclusive idea...

I think it's a great feature too. I f***ed up some shots this weekend when I was using an edge focus point and quickly switched to portrait orientation. When the action is quick, you don't always notice the focus lights.
