After 7D and 5DMKII, This camera doesn't come better with this tiny improved features. This is a huge piece of Junk.
Photodog7: To make a unbiased comment due to the fact I like both systems, it just seems like a long wait only for this. It does not seem like canon really made a good move. On one note, they seemed to address a lot of improvements photographers were looking for, but It seems like the camera is only a small step in front of nikons d3s which will be replaced soon. Then canon is bragging about the pixel size of 7 microns, and about the fact that it is 1.3 microns bigger than the 1d mark 4 and .5 bigger than the 5d mark 2. Sad to say that even though it is a few less megapixels, the D3s has 8.5 micron size, which is much larger. I also feel they just abandon their sports shooters by making only a full frame model. It is really important to have the reach that a 1.3 sensor can provide. Sorry, don't want to upset anyone unless there is something I don't know, Trying to evaluate why this was worth the wait, Despite the fact yes there is SOME nice new features with the camera.
If they put improvement of this camera to a blind man, after this long time he could make much better movement. It seems Canon was aslept most of this time and said to himself: "May be next time"
I think 7D and 5Dmk2 was much better in their time. But this new one is a dirty cheating.
Marco Boerner: EvlBert,
It is understandable why Canon did not include GPS devices in their cameras. Main reason is that there are several countries that do not allow you to bring any electronic with GPS capabilities, starting with phones, gps maps, and cameras. Having GPS included would men Canon could not sell this model to those markets, they would have to create a second series w/o the gps, what would result in higher prices. Also journalists and photographers working on those countries would have to get a different camera too. And on top of that, several government agencies where a camera like this is needed do not allow GPS, especially the military. There are several reasons not to include a GPS device. And on top of that it would increase the size of the camera, even if it's only a little, it would increase the costs, not only for the parts but also for GPS license/usage. There is still a fair amount of photographers working in a studio or fixed location who just don't need GPS.
The understandable matter is why Canon made this poor camera with poor new features that older and cheaper cameras have many of them??????I think GPS is the last matter instead of this Canon quizing people.. lol
amir_np: A large amount of money for these poor features in this monster body.... not worth at all
It's Funny, Technology is growing very fast. It's not difficult for Canon to make a higher MP cam with focus system that nikon use many years ago. I'm a canon fan, but these foolish features in this size is a dirty financial dial that canon do with their fans. Next time (after 2-3 years ) make a new camera with a little beat improvements but with "21 MP" that 5D MKII have years ago and then you will say WWOOWWW THIS IS A GREAT CAMERA, A MIRACLE etc.. (because it's a new cam anyway) But you don't know what a unfair dial they do with you...

Not so impressing, This is not an special camera after this delay.Your users are not silly to be satisfied with these childish futures that every compact camera have.Technology is growing so fast and with present technology these futures are junk.Your users are not kids Canon! Don't forget this!
Nice shot thanks to God that creates this ready subject :)))
