Re: Anyone else going to wait for 5D Mark V

To me, the biggest limitation of FF DSLRs are the limited AF area coverage. If 5D5 would have as much AF area coverage as 90D, that would be great. 7DII or the mirrorless cameras have even larger AF area coverage, but I personally do not feel the need of that much coverage.

90D AF area coverage

Now if it really is technically possible to make AF area this large (like 90D) - I do not know. If 1DXIII is any indication, it seems that FF AF area coverage has reached it's limit.

If the AF area coverage could be made as large as 90D, tracking technologies like face-, eye-, head- detection could be truly useful. Otherwise we often put faces and eyes out of the current AF area coverage, so even if an FF DSLR offers face and head detection through OVF (like 1DXIII) that is not always very useful.
