The Digic5 is "old technology", but I cannot see what else old there is. (Surely a lot of connectors and passive components "reused" but I see no problem there).

-They have the gall to give us YET again that ancient AF???

I cannot remember when Canon has had 11 point AF before.

Adding two single orientation normal precision sensors to "The Nine" doesn't make it anything new. The only new thing in there is the light sensitivity of the central point. So it's the same old "1 reliable pt AF FF camera" scheme again.

have you seen it? used it? etc?

i'm actually curious on this AF with a EV -3 AF capability.

the "old" "ancient" AF .. was barely EV 0

it's certainly not the same as the older 9 point AF's that were in the 5D or XXD cameras .. so it will be interesting to see how it performs in real life.
