    wow what rock have you been under.



    its an intresting camera, great for landscapers or architectural photogs or as a backup for a 1 series.

    I'd still take a 1DII over it anyday, but I don't need the increased resolution or 1x instead of 1.3x, and prefer the speed, noise, AF, and build of the 1DII

    It's not the 9 point AF that is the lose, but its how its implemented, like the 1ds series.... No wide area of coverage for the focus points :down: Essentially what you have is a huge center focus point :mamoru:

    it's easier to name your camera range if you don't have eleventy billion models coming out every six months
