Agreed, for non-action, it will rule.

Yes, for portrait, landscape, studio, etc, it should be the new king.

I was just hoping (selfishly) that the 5DII would be three cameras in one - a FF masterpiece, a DIY crop camera (21mp/1.6/1.6 = 8.2mp), and a sports/action camera. Well, I got 2 out of three. Unfortunately I want the 1D AF system. So now I have to look at used 1D II's. Which isn't such a bad thing, now is it?
