aramgrg: So why should they be competitive?
Because of bulky and heavy construction? In particular, why will someone consider say 25 1.8 instead of well regarded PL 25 1.4?
I know, they are all metal, but how many times you damaged your lens because of plastic construction?

Yes, that is true, I never ever shoot video on any of my DSLR :)
Because I by default assume that legacy lenses are super cheap. However, Samyang makes manual cine lenses cheaper.
Anyways, I suspect the market size for these guys is supposed to be super small.

Ok, let's assume they are video lenses, then the critical sharpness doesn't matter even more and the price makes those even more redundant. With manual focus and clickless aperture, SLR is always there, with 10% of the price.

No remark on what are the equivalent apertures for half-cut lenses?

ozturert: It will sell like hot cakes. Some people who say "DR is bad" have no idea what DR is. In a normal print or on a regular IPS monitor, it's extremely difficult if not impossible to see the difference in DR between 5DMarkIII and D800. You need to apply +3EV or more to both RAWs or brighten shadows a lot to see the difference.
Canon's 5DMarkIII, 7D MII and 1D's are very intuitive and simple to use. Menus are logical, buttons are well placed, operation is smooth, bodies are solid, AF systems are one of the best, just like D810 and D4s are.
Get 5DsR, some primes, 11-24mm f4, 24-70mm f2.8LII, 70-200mm f2.8 L IS II, and you wil get excellent 50MP files and this set is much more mobile than medium formats. Now try to find an equivalent set in medium format. Although Hasselblad would give you better files, the difference would not be huge when you attach an Otus to 5DsR. Or mount a Sigma 50mm f1.4 A and be done.
Before jumping and screaming, note that I say "medium format files would be better".

Both can be considered as crop versions of the sensors from d800 and 5Ds

"In a normal print or on a regular IPS monitor, it's extremely difficult if not impossible to see the difference in DR between 5DMarkIII and D800."

In a normal print or regular IPS display you don't need 50MP.

In reply to:

Rick Knepper: It was improved, relatively speaking. A sensor with twice the pixels has the same DR as the 5D3 = improved.

Yes, if is is in pixel level.
However, you can't have pixel level noise similar to 70d(or 7d2) and improved DR in pixel level.

Lensjoy: Hey, Canon (and Nikon). Let me tell you what I want in a camera besides megapixels. With all the effort spent fighting a battle for the resolution king, I'd rather see these improvements:

Virtual depth-of-field indicator calculated from lens data, since zooms and many prime lenses don't have it any more.

Less noise at high ISO. I want better pixels, not more of them to fill up hard drives.

Focus bracketing with in-camera lossless compression so a stack of images doesn't take up a lot of storage.

GPS.

Wider dynamic range.

Better RAW architecture for custom ICC profiling.

Faster frame rate for wildlife and action shots.

Improved autofocus. Yes, these cameras are pretty good, but much more can be done here.

Switchable anti-moire (use the sensor cleaning vibrator to shake the sensor during exposure.)

Dual white balance (highlights and shadows) so that both ends of the dynamic range are neutralized. That's the way our eyes work.

Return back in 10 years

The title of preview should have been "If you have invested heavily in Canon glass, wait 3-4 more years." I am glad I haven't.
Depressing...

If it is just 2.5x 70D sensor, then RIP Canon!

aramgrg: I shoot canikon, but honestly, even after 7dii and a77ii, pentax is the best. Combine it with under $800 price point and it is a no brainer for the one who starts building a system.

Yes, they are very close, however,
1) EVF vs OVF. If you are an action shooter, even if TCM may help tracking, but the blackouts in evf are not pleasing(at least what I've seen in mark I). And other downsides of TCM, which I think all of us know. However, it may be better for some shooting stiles, I personally do not like it.
2)The body construction of Pentax is just superb.
3) Selectable AA filter and No TLC makes it about half a stop better
4) GPS astro tracer may be invaluable for some
5) Fast continuous shooting with good buffer. Even if Sony is faster, I still prefer the tracking with OVF

DavidsfotosDotCom: K-3 has time laps & 0GPS-1 but what is:
1. GPS optional if it has GPS1?
2. Can Canon EF or old FD lens adapt?
I have to much Canon Pro glass to buy other wise.

You can buy optional astro-tracker, which basically moves tge sensor based on GPS data to avoid star trails
