Does your PC have USB3? USB 3 Card readers < $20

Sorry for the redundancy if someone else has already pointed this out.

Going through the SPECS on the 5DMK3 and you have got to be kidding me. USB2.0 in 2012? WTF? I mean USB 3.0 is 10x faster and available everywhere. I am looking at upgrading the 5DMKII and walla, NO USB 3.0. For just a few brief moments, I am thinking, O.K. at least I can now use the supplied USB to cable that connects the camera to your computer and download in a blink of the eye. Yeah, right.

Someone needs to be fired for this. No USB 3.0 is total BS.
