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 :)

Not sure if you're aware of it, but ISO is actually derived from both the ASA and DIN system. Also, there's absolutely no reason not to write common abbrevations such as 25k, or 100k, or 500k.

Even the reviewer was too embarassed to actually test this outside, being scared that someone might see him using this rediculous contraption, and just took some photos in his apartment.

Drazen Stojcic Buntovnik: Seems like a great improvement over the old model, but slightly disappointing in the resolution department. The problem is, Canon is not only concerned by the competition from other manufacturers, but also by the competition from it's own product lineup. And as long as they're gimping their high-end pocket cameras in order to protect the low end dSLR's, they'll be a step behind. Why not go all out? After all, going all out with 5dmk2 has launched them into the stratosphere. This is also quite a pricey camera... And I'm guessing the EVF will be priced probably above 500$, making the combination way above 1200$. For that kind of cash, there's plenty of other (and better) cameras floating around.

That's actually good news. I was worried Canon was going Sony-style with their insane 400$ EVF price. Still, here in Europe the camera will cost 1000$ and EVF will be 350, so I'm not far off the mark.

jackpro: pow canon has hit a home run now we just need some better lenses!

Nikon 14-24 2.8 comes to mind... This comes from a Canon user, frustrated with it's' 14 2.8 / 16-35 2.8 combo!

tlinn: I find this new model more curious than exciting. I think sports shooters will be thrilled. Wedding photogs with strong biceps will be too. It will be interesting to see just what is gained in image quality and low light capability given the loss in resolution. Speaking only for myself, resolution is not just important for print size; it's also important for cropping.

It will be equally interesting to see how this fares compared to Nikon's upcoming D4. I don't think you can grade Canon without taking into account what Nikon is able to do with their next iteration of the D series.

My biggest disappointment is the lack of built in radio-controlled flash system. This was the number one capability I was waiting for. Canon patented a system a year and a half ago and they've filed additional patents since. This seems like such an obvious game-changing feature. Unless it debuts in a 5D III or a new high end body, it's likely to be a long wait before another opportunity comes around.

I think that's reserved for new 5d, which will probaly be more studio-oriented camera with higher resolution, slower speed and more attention given to flash.

Ceesprof: The drop of 4 MP makes now a difference of 6MP with the Nikon D3 and the Sony camera.
Especially in the advanced stock photography and for those photographers making large prints, the pixel count is very important.
With this new Canon camera we can shoot very fast pictures that we can't sell (stock) or can't print large enough.

I don't think 1Dx was ever intended strictly for studio. It's an all-around camera for pro shooter. However, even for stock, I can't see the reason for 18 mpix beeing too small. You can print A3 at 300 dpi with that for Christ sake! We use 5Dmk2's for our business, and I honestly can't remember when was the last time anyone used our photo for 300dpi print larger then that. Counting that the upscaling claims hold true, I really don't see a problem with resolution.

Makes you wonder what the 5d mk3 is going to be like, especially since it obviously needs to replace both the old 5d mk2 and in part 1Ds mk3 - resolution wise. 1Ds line is obviously gone for good. I wouldn't be surprised at all to see 5D2 replaced with same size body, higher resolution and low fps with same video features as in 1Dx. Maybe even 2k RAW video, depending on what the upcoming camcorder announcement is about...

Ouch! Jagged edges all over the place and a LOT of color bleed on even moderately high ISO. Just look at the first photo... The red is bleeding all over the place. But, to be honest, many of the shots look bad simply because the lens used sucks. I do like the details, but it seems this camera will perform best in controlled environment such as a studio.
