RichRMA: Even with a red band, half plastic...
I have no problem with the plastic. Seems well constructed
panchoskywalker: I wish they'll come with equivalent lens for FF bodies.
When you say equivalence - you mean for dof - right? Not for calculating shutter speed?
wellyspyder: If you were expecting a quantum leap in image quality from Canon or Nikon, then you are deluded. There will be no such an easy and frequent thing as the product has matured. Same for flat panel tv, which only gets thinner but image quality is now pretty stable with each generation.
What this camera gives Canon lens owners like myself still using xxD bodies is another choice, i.e. full frame with decent AF for sports without going to 1D bodies which weighs like a brick which I do not need.
Canon already have hook those with 5D bodies, whether you upgrade or not is irrelevant for most part.
Irrespective of what 'quantum' means, the noun 'quantum leap' usually means a sudden and/or dramatic advance (e.g. a significant technological advance).
Wellyspider's use of quantum leap in the sentence above is correct.
