My initial observations:

1. Excellent lens, IQ and colour. Nice skin tones.

2. Highlight clipping is quite pronounced. Even with 200%DR it's still there. Why this should be so with such a large sensor is puzzling.

3. Grip is not deep enough for such a heavy camera. Have to use little finger under camera to balance weight.

4. LCD screen is not protected. It is recessed but this makes it very difficult to clean. You need to keep this folded in for protection, when not shooting.

5. Optical viewfinder is small, but it is bright and I found I was using it quite often.

6. It is very slow. Just can't understand why Canon have done this.

For the first time we have a digital camera that is so close to what we have been asking for, but it is tantalisingly not quite there yet.
