I'm sorry, I don't get it...

For months, drivel on this forum has focused on a $2000 full frame camera, for years a vocal number of people here have been screaming at Canon for not including GPS, and latterly Wi-Fi, in DSLRs and now Canon produces a camera that addresses all of that and all anyone can do is whine??? Ok, yeah, I'm disappointed in the paucity of AF points and lack of articulated LCD, but "Canon has lost it?" "We used to be proud of Canon?" Really??? Aren't ya'll overreacting just a tad? In this day and age, trailing a competitor 20mp to 24mp isn't a big deal, 4.5 fps isn't that much less than 5.5 fps (Canon had to do something to separate it in this spec from the 5D3.) and it does include the aforementioned GPS and Wi-Fi that the Nikon doesn't. Overpriced? Hardly, in light of the same price of a similar camera from Nikon and the higher pricing of all other full frame options. It's right where it should be. (Maybe it's the 7D that's underpriced? )

No, it's not a camera I'm going to buy right now, even for a backup, mainly because of the single cross point, but it ain't that bad a camera. Really it isn't.
