But to this market, the lack of pop-up flash, relatively low resolution and omission of the flip-out screen (one of the main selling points of the 60D, whose body this camera shares!) make this camera unappealing.

yes, flip-out screen could have been one of the few (almost) unique features among the many FF cameras that are available now or soon. No excuses for leaving it out, they could easily have produced a camera with flipscreen AND even lower weight/size - but that would have required a new body and they prefer recycling old stuff.

They use most of the 60d shell and kept the same ergonomics, but left out the flip-out screen. This smells like a cost-cutting measure more than anything else.
