Jens_G: I would've preferred a fixed 35mm(equivalent) f/1.4 lens, but I'll take this!

except of course for the size, and I prefer Sony's AF.

Don Kiyoti: What is the point of these interstitial pages? I have long wondered why, when one clicks on the link on the home page, it doesn't go directly to the review/preview.

Advertisements/ page clicks/ revenue.

harenochiguu: I always carry a S90 in my pants pocket. Maybe it is time to upgrade?

I was about to buy an S100 - thank goodness I didn't.
I'm just afraid that demand will be so high that it'll be impossible to get my hands on one when it launches.

zapatista: 25600 ISO in a 20mp camera with a pretty small sensor? Ah the Sony Cybershot love of smeary, over processed Noise Reduction. Hopefully I'm wrong.

Whish is where RAW comes in :)

KlausP: Canon 5DII, The Sequel... Yawn

More than 3 years after the Mark II and they came up with this? I would consider this a minor upgrade with improved auto focus and video. At $3500, it's overpriced and under developed! The 5DII broke new ground by combining a high resolution, clean sensor for stills with full frame video, for $2700. The 5DIII is like most sequels, a rehash of the old formula with a few new twists. The full frame video made a big splash the first time around, so Canon's logic appears to be "let's do more the of the same." While it's nice to have video on a still camera, if I'm serious about video, I get out a dedicated video camera which is superior (for video) to the handling of a DSLR in almost every respect. What Canon seems to have forgotten are the upgrades for still photography. There's simply very little here I see to justify an upgrade, especially for the price. Perhaps they have another card up their sleeve, but for now, Nikon has eaten their lunch.

I never bought a 5DII because the AF was no better than that in the 5D1 - Canon have finally given me a reason to upgrade: 61 point AF with 41 cross type sensors!

1D X AF alone is reason enough for me to buy the 5D3.

Still no built-in AF illuminator!!!
What good is all that ISO if you can't focus in the dark?

soupnazi81: Remember when Nikon wasn't pushing the megapixel race and were praised?That's what Canon is doing now and they're getting bashed. Canon can't win.

I think 18 MP is the sweet spot, but I'll take 22MP over 32MP any day.

I can't wait to see how the AF compares between this and the Nikon.
My money's on the Canon.

vFunct: hahah Canon got owned by Nikon. So glad I stuck by Nikon!

If you're saying that because of the resolution difference, you're an idiot.

You can spot the noobs very easily: They're the ones who think more MP = better camera.

This camera is perfect. Perfect resolution, Iso range, OH AND THE AF!!!

The AF was the one big let-down for me on the 5D2. Now the 5D3 arguably has the best AF in any camera.

LokTo: too little, too late... see what M43 is offering... NOW!

Sony can offer more lenses as time passes, m43 sensor will always be small.

Also, focus peaking in Nex cameras means that MF lenses are actually viable.

Can't believe they actually stole the Nex tilting mechanism for the LCD.

I'm betting it'll look even uglier if you put it next to a Nex 7.

The Nex 7 is better looking, more compact, and has a much larger sensor.
Then there's also the bonus of focus peaking.

In reply to:

zapatista: Well, the things that attracted me to switch to the Nex 5N
from a G3/E-PM1 are all addressed here, except maybe focus peaking.

-Higher Resolution Screen
-Flip Up & Down (This is a really nice suprise)
-More manual physical controls (Nex isn't good on this anyway except 7)
-IBIS that would be better than E-PM1 would be awesome
-Weather proofing is a nice +
-Built in EVF is nice, but resolution still not that great.

However after all this, my biggest suprise might be that the MSRP-launch price isn't sky high! I need to read the full preview 1st, but i wonder if there's improved manual focus control.

hmmm, decisions, decisions...

Focus peaking, and size.
The Nex is smaller while having a bigger sensor.

The sensor is way too small for the camera.

openskyline: the price for 24-70mm II is $2,299, so expensive for a lens without IS.
I will buy a Tamron 24-70 VC instead. Stupid Canon

http://pdnpulse.com/2012/02/canon-announces-trio-of-pro-lenses-including-new-24-70mm-f2-8l-ii.html#more-3936

@Mitsuoka The Tamron wil cost 1/3 to 1/2 of what the Canon costs, and I'm willing to bet IQ is going to be comparable, plus it's got IS.

Waiting for reviews, but so far the new Tammy is the clear winner imho.

24/2.8 will be nice on APS (36mm equiv).
