Also if you shoot with the 5D3 or 1DX, you will have a tighter threshold for AF accuracy/consistency.

Is there info on enhanced accuracy and consistency on the web - didn't see it mentioned on the Canon site....

I'm afraid that after that bit of news (thanks XeroJay), telling me that the new version is optimized with 5 internal crosshair type points that coordinate with the new 5Diii and 1Dx, that I'm gonna have to do it, and drop those $2300....  Oh man this is gonna hurt....

Thanks All
