AF module - price differences
Jun 16, 2012

Over the years, Canon have developed and implemented different AF modules across DSLR series. Topic about cost of FF sensor vs. APS-C size sensor has been beaten to death. But what about AF modules. How much more is to develop latest one from 5D III and 1Dx over one that was in 5D II? Is it mostly in hardware, signal processing or software? Does it warrant premium of $1000? $500? Less? More? I can't even start to guess, but is there anyone who can at least give me an educated guess?
