BareFoot Photog: It seems to me there's a lot of hot air surrounding PRE-production test units of late but in all seriousness the lead time until a box lands on my desk with the unit inside is so far away it's not really worth getting all excited. I strongly feel these days the marketing machine often forgets about the users and their true requirements.

Given the quality of the current sensors and the stellar results they provide will the average user seriously have a need for such large resolution? Such fancy terminology and an inbuilt need to then spend big bucks on updating peripheral product like heaven forbid QXD cards?

This camera is not for average users... that's the D5100's job.

MP Burke: I haven't been able to find out how much this camera weighs. Will it set a new record for a 35mm dslr? Now, how about trying to make a digital slr (for those who want a 35mm sensor but don't want high speed motor drives) that is no bigger and heavier than the film slrs of the 1970's or 1980's?

And the bank...

itaibachar: Good for Canon!
But I'm a bit worried/disappointed about the small area the focus points cover. They're cramped into the center of the frame, very limiting our composition options to a centralized subject.
Me not like...:-(

If your subject is the torso yes, but I like to focus on people's heads, and they are not located at the center of a typical frame. I really dont understand this design feature. It is handicapping an otherwise great tool.
