The Digic5 is "old technology", but I cannot see what else old there is. (Surely a lot of connectors and passive components "reused" but I see no problem there).

-They have the gall to give us YET again that ancient AF???

I cannot remember when Canon has had 11 point AF before.

Adding two single orientation normal precision sensors to "The Nine" doesn't make it anything new. The only new thing in there is the light sensitivity of the central point. So it's the same old "1 reliable pt AF FF camera" scheme again.

Sometimes it makes me feel that this was the originally-to-be-5D3, but Canon needed something to counter D800, and they made something better and called it 5D3... And the initial 5D3 became 6D.
