Wow. I would use ISO3200 (maybe 6400) quite happily if I could afford one of these.

So whats wrong the ISO100 - what am I missing (looked good to me)?

I think Canons drive for higher ISO performance is a good move rather than just more MPs. Surely of interest to sports / indoor natural light photographers?

not very impressive at ISO 100 in fact I can see no advantage over my 5D II in similar conditions.

Looks like this camera is addressing a different use case then I normally have - not very attractive at 3.3 k EUR compare to the 2.3 k EUR I payed some 3 1/2 years ago for the 5D II

Main interest will probably come form video shooters and desperate 5D owners for new gear.

The camera seems to address a niche of the market that was untouched by Canon till the 1Dx came out - I still wonder why they need two cameras to address a similar use case?

This shot clearly illustrates the base ISO 100 is also on such cameras unbeatable - would like to see real world comparisons e.g. printed results from both cameras - I am quite sure that the quality gain of the new sensor is almost invisible even at very large prints beyond 24x35 inches if at all.
