R o l o: Minor improvements, major price increase. Keep your Mark II for now...
Disagree. My first impression was this is a minor upgrade. Looking at the high ISO shots and considering the AF, HDR, etc. has me seriously considering getting one. The low noise in the high ISO shots, to me at least, blow away the competition.
why not go a bit further and get rid of the line and the big, black, oil blob?
I agree with ajay. Although the composition is terrific, the shot is blurred or out of focus. From a technical standpoint, it is lacking. This type of photo needs to be sharp. A bit of a missed opportunity IMHO. Still, as I said, the composition is terrific.
So much for the rule of not changing reality.
