Nick8: Just one thought, not related to this new great camera in particular…In the film era, both the ASA and DIN standards were used for the film sensitivity.100 ASA was equivalent to 21 DIN.I think DIN would have been a far more practical choice. ISO 409,600 would be equivalent to 57 DIN.Another 2 steps in sensitivity from 409,600 and the ISO will become 1,638,400 vs 63 DIN.Certainly that cannot fit on a dedicated dial :)
I've often wondered how big and cumbersome ISO numbers have to get before we go to a sensible logarithmic scale such as DIN. Can you imagine a conversation "Are you going to use ISO 409,600 or go up to 819,200?" Dumb.
I always carry in my bag (with camera and lenses) a cloth, spare battery and memory cards, lens pen, polarising filter, GPS unit and humidity sensor. That's all.
Couldn't find any mention of this on the Australian site. What a surprise.
Sad, isn't it?

Of the sample videos, the only one that is much use is the one with the guy standing in front of the tower. In the racing boat shots, most of the action is left to right at infinity or close to it, and the depth of field is great enough for everything to be pretty much in focus anyway. I took a video of a band recently where I was side-on to the stage, with the musicians ranging from three to ten metres away. I tried to focus on each person when they did a solo, and found it quite difficult with the 5D Mark III. I'd be interested to see how the new focus system handled a situation like that.
Sarah Marino wins my first prize. But I agree with others ... isn't the silky water look a bit passé?

Tried again and it worked.

Minuscule, not miniscule.
I agree, DPR should hire Roger. I printed out all his articles in the series so I could curl up in bed with them ... and I don't do that often!
A pity he didn't look at the 24-105L on the 5DII and 5DIII. I've noticed an improvement, but not as dramatic as with the 70-300L. The 24-105 is seven years old now, so perhaps Canon will release a Mk II with better AF to match the 5DIII and 1D X ...
A bit disappointing that the camera doesn't align HDR bracketed shots. A bit silly to have to carry a tripod.
Confirms my decision never to put any photos much bigger than a thumbnail on any websites. Prevention is better than cure.
